Breast Lift Plus Breast Augmentation
Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Chandler, Glendale and surrounding areas in Arizona
A breast lift combined with augmentation, called augmentopexy, corrects sagging breasts and adds volume in one procedure. It is a good choice if your breasts have “deflated” after pregnancy or massive weight loss. Dr. Gawley can help you decide if this breast procedure will help you achieve the look you desire.
Benefits of Breast Lift Plus Breast Augmentation
Breast enlargement will not correct sagging breasts, and a lift alone will not add volume. A breast lift with implants sculpts your breasts into the shape and size that you want, creating firmness, correcting the position and shape of your breasts, and adding volume without the need for multiple procedures.
Many women seek breast augmentation to restore breasts that have begun to sag due to age, pregnancy, or weight loss. In most cases, implants alone will not significantly lift the breasts and the added weight of the implants can make sagging worse over time if your skin has lost elasticity.
By combining the enlargement with a lift, we remove the excess skin and create the proper framework for your breasts, supporting both the existing tissue and the implants.
It is normal to be unsure of which breast procedure will give you the results you are looking for. If you have plenty of breast tissue, a breast lift may be sufficient by itself. Often, women who had large breasts lose volume and begin to sag simultaneously, and a lift will not restore the breasts of your youth. A breast lift plus breast augmentation is appropriate for women who:
- Have always had small breasts and are now experiencing sagging
- Have lost volume and experienced stretching due to pregnancy or weight fluctuations
- Have always had sagging breasts and want to increase volume
Choosing a Combined Procedure
By combining the procedures, you avoid doubling up on your recovery time, and Dr. Gawley can use a more comprehensive approach. Your lift will be designed to accommodate the implants, and the implants will be chosen to enhance and work best with your shape after the lift. Combining the procedures should not involve a longer recovery period than having one procedure alone, and you enjoy optimal results much faster than two separate procedures.
