Breast Augmentation remains one of the most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in the United States. Beverly Hills, Los Angles and Southern California do not have exclusivity for Breast Implants. Walnut Creek, the Greater San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California can hold their own, with some of the most skilled and experienced Breast Augmentation specialists in the world.
Breast Augmentation with Breast Lift
Sometimes Breast Implants are not Enough
Breast Implants are excellent for restoring lost volume, but they don’t do much to change the shape of the breasts. Breast implants augment the breasts by adding volume. When the breasts are small, but maintain a good shape, an increase in size is all that is needed.
When the breasts are small and saggy, we want more than larger saggy breasts. We want larger, perkier breasts. The solution: Mastopexy Augmentation, or a breast lift with breast enlargement.
A Breast Lift alone helps when you are satisfied with your breast volume, but not the shape of your breast, or if your breast skin is too loose. Breast Augmentation alone helps when the breasts maintain a pretty shape, but are smaller than desired. If you have the combination of missing breast volume and sagging, the combination of Breast Augmentation with a lift can give the best results.
Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation Before and Afters
On one hand, the combination of Mastopexy Augmentation provides added improvement, but the increased complexity also requires greater skills. There are some situations which may benefit from staging the procedures, but in skilled hands, the combination can be performed at the same time, decreasing the number of operations and recovery time needed.
