Are you thinking about pairing a breast lift with augmentation, but aren’t sure which options might be right for you? Before making a decision, ask these three questions at your cosmetic surgery consultation.
How Many Breast Lift with Augmentations Have You Performed?
First things first, you’ll need to choose the right cosmetic surgeon for your breast enhancement procedure. Although it can be convenient to combine a breast lift and implants into one procedure, you definitely want to make sure that your cosmetic surgeon has experience combining these two procedures.
Ask to see before and after photos of breast lifts, augmentations and combination procedures that your cosmetic surgeon has performed in the past.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If sagging skin or breast tissue is a concern, your cosmetic surgeon may suggest adding a breast lift to your breast augmentation. This is why many women who have had children opt for a breast lift or combo breast enhancement.
If you’re more concerned with adding volume and sagging isn’t much of an issue, you might be better off with just implants.
Which Breast Enhancement Options Would You Suggest?
There are a variety of different options to choose from when customizing your breast lift and augmentation procedure, including incision type, implant size and implant placement.
Depending on your unique body shape and goals, your cosmetic surgeon might suggest one option over another to help you achieve the desired result. Ultimately, the final decision will be yours to make, but it can be a big help to get your cosmetic surgeon’s professional input during your consultation and ask as many questions about your breast enhancement as possible.
