Our clinic is dedicated to enhancing our patients’ well-being through a variety of cosmetic procedures and treatments. Many of our clients express interest in undergoing a combination of popular surgeries, often as part of a mommy makeover. This procedure is often sought out by women looking to rejuvenate their breasts after they have sagged and lost volume after pregnancy and childbirth or due to aging. In such cases, clients often opt for both breast implants and a lift. If you’re considering improving your breasts this year, we are here to support you every step of the way!

Can You Combine Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation Surgeries?

Also called a mastopexy-augmentation, this comprehensive approach is perfect for women seeking to address sagging caused by aging, weight loss, or breastfeeding while also desiring an increase in breast size. This surgery starts with precise incisions made around the areola and potentially extending down the breast and along the crease. Through these carefully planned incisions, your plastic surgeon artfully lifts and reshapes the breast tissue, eliminating the excess skin and strategically placing the implants. At NuBody Concepts, we employ the latest techniques to minimize scarring and deliver natural-looking results, empowering you to embrace a more youthful and balanced silhouette.

Benefits of Combining Breast Lift and Augmentation

The benefits of combining a breast lift with augmentation are numerous. This procedure addresses multiple concerns in one surgery, saving time and reducing the overall recovery period.

  • Enhanced Appearance and Self-Esteem: The combined breast lift and augmentation procedure can significantly enhance your physical appearance and boost your self-esteem.
  • Time and Recovery: Addressing multiple concerns in one surgery saves time and reduces patients’ overall recovery period.
  • Improved Breast Shape: Patients often experience improved breast shape with firmer, more uplifted breasts that complement their body contours.
  • Restored Youthful Appearance and Increased Confidence: Increased volume can restore a youthful appearance and boost self-confidence.
  • Better Fit and Appearance of Clothing: The combined procedure can improve the fit and appearance of clothing, providing a broader range of wardrobe options.

The benefits of this comprehensive approach extend beyond physical enhancements, as many women feel more comfortable and confident in their skin after cosmetic surgery. Our Memphis-based clinic is accepting new patients and can help women achieve this life-changing surgery.

Risks Associated With Combined Breast Lift and Augmentation

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks to consider when combining a breast lift with a breast augmentation. The plastic surgeons at NuBody Concepts will thoroughly discuss all breast lift and augmentation risks during your consultation to ensure you are fully informed. Risks to consider include:

  • Scarring: May vary based on individual healing processes and surgical techniques.
  • Changes in Nipple Sensation: Numbness or hypersensitivity may occur.
  • Infection: Potential risk associated with the procedure.
  • Hematoma: A collection of blood outside blood vessels.
  • Implant Issues: The potential for rupture or displacement.

There are several proactive measures you can take to minimize the risks involved with combining these two surgeries:

  1. Follow post-operative care instructions meticulously to minimize the risk of infection and promote proper healing.
  2. Choose a qualified, experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who utilizes advanced surgical techniques to minimize scarring and other potential complications.
  3. Discuss the placement and size of the implants with your plastic surgeon to reduce the risk of changes in nipple sensation and achieve optimal results.
  4. Before the surgery, disclose your complete medical history to your plastic surgeon to identify and address potential risk factors affecting your recovery.

By being well-informed, following post-operative instructions diligently, and choosing a skilled surgeon, you can help mitigate the risks associated with combined breast lift and augmentation surgeries.

How to Find the Right Surgeon for Your Procedure

Selecting the right plastic surgeon is critical in ensuring a successful outcome for your breast lift and augmentation surgery. Begin by researching qualified surgeons specializing in breast-related surgeries with a wealth of experience in performing these procedures. The American Board of Plastic Surgery is the only board recognized by The American Board of Medical Specialties. This board upholds rigorous standards for training and practice in plastic surgery. Dr. Peters is certified through this board and specializes in this breast procedure.

Preparing for Surgery

Preparation is key to a successful surgery and smooth recovery. Before your procedure, it is important to set realistic expectations and ensure you are mentally prepared for the changes ahead. Your plastic surgeon will provide detailed instructions on how to prepare for your surgery, including guidelines on medication, diet, and lifestyle adjustments. You may also need to arrange for someone to assist you during the initial recovery period. At NuBody Concepts, we are committed to supporting you every step of the way.

Life After Surgery

After undergoing surgery for a breast lift and breast augmentation, it’s important to dedicate the next few weeks to rest and carefully adhere to your surgeon’s instructions. Wear a supportive bra, avoid strenuous activities, and attend all follow-up appointments to promote proper healing. Following post-operative care guidelines, you can minimize long-term risks and enjoy the benefits of your new breasts for years to come.
