Egozi Plastic Surgery is Clearwater’s go-to aesthetic medicine center for those wanting to achieve full rejuvenation and enhance their natural beauty. Egozi Plastic Surgery offers breast enhancement procedures to boost your confidence and perfect your contour, placing a special focus on the benefits of combining your breast augmentation treatment with breast lift surgery.
Difference Between Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift
There are some fundamental differences between a breast augmentation and a breast lift that you should know about before your procedure.
- A breast augmentation adds volume and size to the chest, while a breast lift addresses sagging and reshapes the contour of the breasts.
- Implants are often used during an augmentation, while no implants are involved in a breast lift.
- A breast augmentation is for those looking to increase or decrease their breast size, while a lift is for those looking to address breast sagging.
When choosing between the two procedures, the Egozi Plastic Surgery team will assess your individual goals and needs to decide which treatment option is best for you.
Is It Better to Combine A Breast Augmentation With A Breast Lift?
Understanding your personal goals and realistic expectations for your breast enhancement is extremely important when choosing between an augmentation, lift, or a combination. Many factors may influence you to combine breast procedures, including:
- Breast size and volume goals.
- Breast sagging and ptosis levels.
- Nipple position and appearance.
- Scarring concerns.
Benefits of Combining Breast Augmentation With Breast Lift
Improved Breast Volume
A breast augmentation adds volume to the chest and gives you a more symmetrical figure. Paired with a breast lift, the Egozi Plastic Surgery team will reshape and reposition your breast tissue to emphasize and perfect your breast contour.
Enhanced Breast Shape
Breast sagging, also called ptosis, can affect the breast shape, so Egozi Plastic Surgery offers a natural-looking solution to improve your breast contour to create a harmonious and balanced breast shape.
Breast asymmetry is common, from one breast being larger than the other or nipples being uneven. Combining a breast augmentation with a breast lift can help you achieve better symmetry. During your consultation, ask Dr. Egozi if you can see before and after pictures and hear about real-life success stories from his patients.
Combining your breast augmentation with a breast lift can lead to fewer scars, as the Egozi Plastic Surgery team will use shared incision for both surgeries and provide detailed aftercare instructions for optimal healing and minimally visible scars.
By combining both breast procedures, you enjoy cost-saving benefits with savings on money and downtime.
Single Recovery Period
A single recovery period means you may have slightly longer downtime, but you heal in one go. The convenience of this process compared to the recovery period for separate procedures is shorter in the long run, with minimal disruption to your daily life.
Combining both procedures results in less overall downtime, meaning you don’t have to take cumulative months off work and daily activities. This makes combining procedures more convenient for busy individuals who need to return to their everyday lives as soon as possible while still enjoying optimal results.
When you combine a breast augmentation with a lift, you will enjoy optimal longevity as the breast lift supports and maintains the breast tissue that was adjusted during the augmentation over time. Egozi Plastic Surgery is strongly committed to providing and maintaining our patients with lasting outcomes.
You can customize your results to your unique needs and concerns during your consultation, with the ability to choose implant size, type, placement, and the treatments you receive. Egozi Plastic Surgery places a strong emphasis on offering you a personalized approach so you can look like the best version of yourself.
Are you a Candidate for a Breast Augmentation and Lift?
Individuals with sagging breasts due to aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss are often candidates for a breast lift. A lift can reposition the breast tissue and nipples to a more youthful position.
Desire for Increased Volume
Candidates may want to increase the size and fullness of their breasts in addition to addressing sagging. Breast augmentation can provide the desired volume.
Candidates with breast asymmetry, where one breast is noticeably different in size or position compared to the other, can benefit from a combination procedure to achieve balance and symmetry.
Candidates should have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the surgery, understanding that results may not be perfect but will significantly improve breast appearance.
Good Overall Health
Being in good general health is important for any surgical procedure. Candidates should disclose their medical history and be evaluated by a healthcare professional.
It’s generally recommended that candidates have a stable weight for at least several months before surgery to ensure consistent results.
Smoking can increase the risk of complications during and after surgery. Most plastic surgeons advise candidates to quit smoking before the procedure.
Realistic Scarring Expectations
Candidates should be aware of the potential for scarring, although a skilled plastic surgeon will aim to minimize scarring and discuss incision placement during the consultation.
Willingness to Follow Post-Op Instructions
Candidates should be committed to following the surgeon’s post-operative instructions for optimal healing and results.
