A breast lift pairs well with breast augmentation, giving you larger breasts with a more elevated appearance. Combining these two procedures works best for women with lax breast skin and downward-facing nipples. This blog discusses who benefits most from adding a breast lift to breast augmentation, how recovery time and costs are cut down, and what results can be expected from these two procedures.

Breast Augmentation With Lift

At times, two is truly better than one. One of the most popular cosmetic procedure combinations is breast augmentation with a breast lift. This combination is ideal for women who want to increase their breast volume and reposition their breasts on their chest wall. Whether you’ve always had naturally smaller breasts, have lost volume after pregnancy or weight fluctuations, these two procedures can give you larger, lifted breasts, enhancing your overall body shape and boosting your self-confidence. 

Who Benefits Most From Adding a Breast Lift to Breast Augmentation? 

Every woman’s body is built differently, and every woman has her own goals for what she wants her body to look like. This is why the best breast procedure for one woman may not be suitable for another woman. Younger women looking to enhance their breast size may just need a breast augmentation to achieve their desired results, especially if they have good skin elasticity. Similarly, younger women who are happy with the natural volume of their breasts but want to raise their breasts will likely just need a breast lift

On the other hand, women who have undergone pregnancy, breastfeeding, or significant weight loss may have loose breast tissue that causes their breasts to sag. Many women, in these cases, want a breast augmentation to restore lost breast volume without understanding that they’ll still experience the sagging even after the volume is added. When your skin is lax, adding a breast lift to your augmentation is best to produce optimal results. 

What Are the Benefits of Combining Two Breast Procedures? 

As exciting as it can be to look forward to your new breasts, undergoing surgery can be a nerve-wracking experience, especially if you’re having two procedures together. At Town and Country Plastic Surgeons, our board-certified surgeons are highly experienced in safely performing breast augmentation with a lift, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands. 

Combining these plastic surgery procedures can allow you to achieve your breast goals with one surgery, reduce your recovery time, and save you money in the long term. When you get a breast lift with your augmentation, you only have to plan for one recovery period. This can make it easier to request time off from work and put a hold on your daily responsibilities, as you only need to account for one recovery period instead of two. You’ll also only have to pay for expenses once, such as surgical fees, anesthesia fees, medications, compression garments, etc. Your surgeon will be able to perfect your augmentation and lift so that they complement one another, giving you the best possible results. 

What Do the Results Look Like After Breast Augmentation With a Lift? 

After surgery, your breasts will be swollen and need time to recover before your final results will be visible. You will, however, see a noticeable difference in your breasts immediately after your procedure, with enhanced volume and tighter skin. Once the swelling has completely subsided, you’ll be able to enjoy your voluminous, perky breasts. It takes up to three months for the breasts to heal but may take up to a year to completely settle.
