Can You Have a Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift at the Same Time?
Many women opt to have a breast augmentation with a lift at the same time. Performing both procedures means that the newly augmented breasts will sit in a naturally lifted position. Without a lift, an augmentation can leave breasts with volume that sags lower than the person wanted. Without an augmentation, women who have sagging breasts due to loss of volume might find they do not have much breast tissue left to create fullness. Both procedures together can provide superior results for women who can benefit from them both.
Recovery After a Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift
You will experience some swelling and soreness for a few weeks. Dr. Stile will advise you on how to manage this and take care of yourself during recovery. You can usually get back to your regular activities about a week after your surgery, although you should not lift heavy objects for two weeks. You may experience some numbness in the breast or areola, but this will go away within a few weeks.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Women who want breast augmentation but also have sagging skin make good candidates for breast augmentation and breast lift. You should be in overall good health and discuss any medical conditions during your consultation.
