Should You Get A Breast Lift When Having Implant Surgery?

The Most Popular Cosmetic Surgery

Breast augmentation is the most common type of cosmetic surgery in the United States. Many women want breast augmentation to feel more youthful, especially after having children or losing a significant amount of weight. For these women, getting a breast lift at the same time as implant surgery may be the right solution.

What happens during a breast lift?

Breast lifts, also called mastopexies, are designed to make the breasts appear perkier and more youthful. During a breast lift, the surgeon repositions the nipples and areola, removes excess skin, and lifts the breast. When breasts sag or are uneven, many women find that a breast lift boosts confidence.

Why combine a lift with implant surgery?

First, many women appreciate only having to get on the operating table once. If the surgeon can perform both procedures during one surgery, women save time both in terms of scheduling and recovery. Second, doing both at the same time gives women excellent cosmetic results. Often, the surgeon doesn’t need to use as large of an implant when also doing a breast lift. Women don’t need to add as much volume while still getting the desired effect of improving breast shape. Third, combining both surgeries generally costs less than doing one after the other. Keep in mind, however, that the total cost can vary greatly depending on insurance, location, and surgeon.

Who is a good candidate?

The primary goal of a breast lift is to give the breasts a more even, rounder, higher shape. This is beneficial for women who have breasts that have lost elasticity. This loss of elasticity may be due to extreme weight changes, such as gaining and then losing weight for pregnancy. The changes can also be due to breastfeeding. Note, also, that doing a breast lift and implant surgery may not be the right choice for women who are planning to have children in the future.

Why else should I get a breast lift?

Breast lifts can help women feel better and more confident. Having higher, rounder breasts can also give women more options when shopping for bras or swimsuits. Some women who have naturally asymmetrical breasts find that a breast lift significantly improves the appearance of breasts.
