Breast lift surgery with implants

What are the pros and cons of breast lift surgery with implants? Advancements in surgical techniques have made it possible to perform certain combined cosmetic surgery procedures in a less invasive and safe manner. In particular, breast procedures such as breast implants and breast lift can be effectively combined to create more comprehensive and satisfactory results.  

During your initial consultation for a breast lift surgery with implants, your surgeon will discuss all the benefits and limitations of the dual procedure. Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides breast lift with implants surgery to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and surrounding locations. 

Pros of a Combined Breast Surgery 

A woman’s breasts may undergo substantial changes over time because of aging, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, hormonal changes, and other factors. Breast augmentation with lift is one of the most effective and aesthetically satisfying plastic surgery options for women who are seeking to improve both the size and the firmness of their breasts.  

Droopy breast tissue or ptosis in the breasts is perhaps the most common reason for women to seek breast lift. At the same time, the breasts may have lost volume over the years, causing them to give a deflated look. These both conditions cannot be corrected with either breast implants or breast lift alone.  

This is where breast lift with implants can prove to be a transformative procedure, which will create dramatically youthful and natural looking breasts, while taking care of both the breast size and the problem of sagging breasts.  

Following this surgery, you can freely choose to wear any type of clothes that you make you feel feminine and attractive. You are likely to experience a new level of personal confidence and achieve indirect benefits in your family life, social relationships, and at a professional level.  

With the combined breast lift with implants surgery, you will have to visit the surgery center just once, undergo general anesthesia just once, and go through the pre-op preparation and post-op recovery process just once. Your procedure becomes more cost-effective compared to two surgeries performed separately, and you will be exposed to the potential risks and side effects of the surgery only once.  

When breast implants and breast lift are performed together, your surgeon will have more flexibility to create a unique surgical plan tailored to your needs, use common incisions to perform both procedures, create more natural looking results, and minimize the subsequent scarring (compared to when both procedures are performed separately). 

Cons of a Combined Breast Surgery 

When you undergo a combined breast augmentation with lift plastic surgery, the time you spend inside the operating room will be relatively longer. Following your surgery, you may go through a slightly longer recovery time because of the dual procedures that have been simultaneously performed.  

Even with a combined breast lift with implants surgery, your risks of implant failure remain similar to that of a woman who only chose breast implant surgery. The initial absolute dollar amount of the combined procedure will be higher, even though it is more cost-effective in the long run. 

Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery receives patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and nearby areas for breast lift with implants surgery.
