Sagging Breasts? Here’s Why Breast Augmentation With a Lift is the Ideal Choice

Sagging breasts, which are a natural consequence of aging, gravity, pregnancy, weight fluctuations and genetics, can impact a woman’s self-esteem and body confidence. Fortunately, there is a powerful solution: breast augmentation with a breast lift.

The following guide will explore how this transformative procedure not only corrects sagging but also enhances volume and shape which can help improve a woman’s self-esteem and increase her sense of femininity.

Why Do Breasts Sag Over Time?

Breast sagging, also called ptosis, occurs when the skin and ligaments that support breast tissue lose their elasticity and strength. This often leads to a downward shift of the breasts and nipples, causing them to lose their youthful appearance.

While a breast lift (mastopexy) can restore the position of the breasts and nipple-areola complexes, combining this procedure with a breast augmentation takes the transformation a step further.

Breast Augmentation With a Lift

A breast augmentation with a lift is a comprehensive procedure addressing volume loss or breasts smaller than desired along with sagging.

It is crucial for individuals considering this transformative surgery to have realistic expectations and a clear understanding of the combined benefits and relevant issues.

The Procedure

This combination surgery typically involves the placement of appropriately sized breast implants, either silicone or saline, followed by breast contouring, tightening and lifting components of the mastopexy. The pocket for implant placement, incisions used for the mastopexy, etc. should have been previously and thoroughly discussed.

Combining these procedures in a single surgery provides a synergistic effect, delivering comprehensive results in one surgical setting and recuperation period versus two. Consequently, overall costs should be less and downtime shorter.

What to Expect After Breast Augmentation With a Lift

Maintaining Your Results

After the initial recovery period, maintaining the results of breast augmentation with a lift for a longer period of time requires commitment by the patient. This includes wearing a supportive bra on a regular basis, maintaining a relatively stable weight and protecting the breasts from excessive sun exposure (or tanning booths).

The implants should also be monitored at intervals to check for their integrity, most notably the silicone ones. The reason for this is that they do not last forever and will break down with time. When they do break down, there typically are no changes in size or shape, giving rise to the term “silent” ruptures. Evaluation for this can be done with an MRI or digital ultrasound.

Emotional Benefits of Cosmetic Breast Surgery

Correcting sagging breasts through this combined procedure not only enhances the physical appearance but also has a profound impact on confidence and self-esteem. Patients often feel more comfortable in their bodies and enjoy a renewed sense of femininity.

The positive impact on confidence and body image makes the investment in breast augmentation with a lift transformative and long-lasting.
