While some women may benefit from either a breast augmentation or a breast lift, Dr. Sugene Kim cannot meet every patient’s appearance goals with a single procedure. In some cases, she may recommend a combined breast lift and augmentation surgery at her practice in The Woodlands, TX, to provide a fuller figure along with improved breast shape and position.
Who Should Consider a Breast Lift & Augmentation?
Many women find themselves wishing that they had larger breasts. Whether your breasts never developed as fully as you’d hoped or you’ve lost breast volume as a result of age, weight fluctuations or pregnancy, breast implants can provide a solution. However, if you also have some degree of breast sagging, or ptosis, it’s likely that breast augmentation would only increase your sagging without the inclusion of a breast lift. A combined breast augmentation and lift surgery offers women the best of both worlds.
By increasing breast volume while also lifting the breasts to a more youthful position, you can achieve a perkier profile that helps you feel more confident and feminine. A breast lift and augmentation surgery can also commonly be used to resolve breast asymmetry. Having both procedures at the same time rather than as separate surgeries can mean minimizing your costs and downtime so you can enjoy your final results more quickly.
Breast Lift & Augmentation Techniques
The breast lift and augmentation procedure is customized for each individual. If you decide to move forward with the procedure, there are a number of factors that will contribute to determining the best approach for you:
- Saline or silicone breast implants
- Implant size
- Breast implant placement
- Degree of breast sagging
Because the incision used during your procedure will depend in part on the amount of excess breast skin, combining breast augmentation with your breast lift can minimize scarring since the implant will fill out your breast volume, resulting in less baggy skin. In addition to repositioning the breasts, filling out their volume and tightening the breast skin, Dr. Kim can also reposition the nipples and resize the areolas if needed.
During your consultation with Dr. Kim, you will have the opportunity to discuss all of these factors, as well as ask any questions you may have about your procedure. She will explain the surgical procedure in greater detail and make any suggestions she may have about the best implant type or size for you.
