22 Aug Do You Need Two Surgeries for Breast Lift and Augmentation?
Many women struggle with the size and appearance of their breasts. Some feel that their breasts sag too much or are too small. Some may agree with both statements and decide to have both a breast lift and breast augmentation done.
Many women are under the impression that they can have both procedures done at the same time. After all, the plastic surgeon will be working on the breasts in both cases, so it would make sense that the doctor could do insert the breast implants and lift together.
While a plastic surgeon can do both procedures together in some cases, more than likely you will need two surgeries to accomplish both goals. Read on to find out why.
A Breast Surgery Consultation is Key
The results of your consultation will determine if you will need one surgery or two. Thinner women in particular often cannot accommodate a large implant and lift at the same time.
If your plastic surgeon does think he or she can perform both procedures at the same time, the breast augmentation should be done first to ensure there is enough skin to close the incisions without them being too tight. Another thing to consider is that when lifts and augmentations are done that the same time, you might have to make some sacrifices regarding breast implant size. You will likely have to go smaller than you desired because there is too much weight on the skin.
Ultimately, if you are going to get breast implants, it’s important to get the size you want. When you do implants and a breast lift at the same time, you may have some limitations. Talk with your surgeon and get advice that’s right for you and your body. They want nothing more than to help you achieve your goals, but it must be done safely.
