Why Should You Consider a Breast Lift With Augmentation?
Posted July 17, 2018 in Breast Lift
As you age, your breasts go through many changes. Skin elasticity decreases, which causes the breasts to sag and lose their perky positioning on the chest. Life experiences, such as pregnancy and shifts in weight, can also affect the appearance, structure, and positioning of the breasts. Sagging breasts can only be corrected surgically; there is no diet or exercise regimen that can restore them to their natural position. A breast lift will adjust the positioning of the breasts while also restoring a beautiful, natural shape to them. But many women also find that they not only wish to adjust the positioning of their breasts but also want to enhance their size. A breast lift can be performed in tandem with breast augmentation surgery to improve the positioning and increase the size of the breasts.
Benefits of Breast Lift
The most significant benefit to a breast lift is improved positioning of the breasts. While the technique used varies depending on the severity of sagging, your breasts will be lifted to a more upright and natural position. A breast lift can also adjust the positioning and size of the nipples and areolas. If the nipples have begun to point downward, a breast lift can ensure that they are pointing forward once again.
Better Fit to Clothing
Another clear benefit of undergoing breast lift surgery is the ease in finding well-fitting clothing that looks good and makes you feel even better. When breasts sag down the chest, it can be difficult to find supportive bras and clothing that can fit over the breasts and still look good on other parts of the body. With the repositioning that comes with a breast lift, well-fitting clothing is much easier to find.
Disappointment in your appearance can cause your confidence levels to drop. You may feel discouraged that your breasts are not the same, or you may feel less attractive because of the aesthetics of your breasts. By choosing a breast lift, you will find that your confidence levels rise, and you will start to feel better about your appearance.
Why Should I Consider a Breast Augmentation Too?
A breast lift will not address the size of your breasts; it solely lifts them to a better position and adjusts their shape if necessary. However, combining a breast lift with breast augmentation surgery means that not only can you restore your breasts’ natural position, but you can also enhance their size to what you desire. Choosing to undergo both procedures at once is more cost-effective, as you do not have to pay separately for operating site costs, anesthesia costs, or other costs associated with undergoing a surgical procedure. If you have ever considered breast augmentation, it is important to know that having it performed in conjunction with your breast lift will ultimately be the smartest option financially. Additionally, your recovery time will be much shorter than if you undergo both procedures separately. However, depending on the patient, Dr. Thompson may recommend that both the breast lift and breast augmentation surgery be completed at separate times.
While they can both produce strong results that improve your appearance, both procedures performed in conjunction with one another can provide you with even more dramatic results. You have the opportunity to not only restore your perky breasts but to also give yourself a more voluptuous, shapely figure.
