What are the pros and cons of breast lift surgery with implants? 

Breast lift surgery with implants

What are the pros and cons of breast lift surgery with implants? Breast lift and breast augmentation plastic surgery rank among the more popular procedures for cosmetic enhancement. Women who want to increase the size, fullness, and volume of their breasts may choose breast implants. In other cases, where a woman is satisfied with her breast size, but suffers from sagging breasts due to skin laxity, may benefit from a breast lift surgery.  

However, when a woman needs both increased breast size and firmer, lifted breast position, she may have to choose breast augmentation with lift surgery. This combined surgery offers some definite advantages over a standalone procedure, but it will also have some limitations. During the initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss the pros as well as cons of the procedure in order to help you make an informed decision.  

Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides breast lift with implants surgery to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.  

Combined Surgery – Pros 

When breast lift is combined with breast implants cosmetic surgery, it effectively becomes a single procedure rather than two separate surgeries being performed at separate times. This creates inherent benefits for you, especially if you are a good candidate for a combined breast procedure.  

You will require general anesthesia only one time, and you will visit the surgery center only once for your breast augmentation with lift procedure. This reduces your risk in the sense that you will be exposed to the potential side effects and complications related to anesthesia and surgery only once.  

As the procedure is performed at one time, you will have to go through the pre-operative preparation just one time. A single post-op recovery is involved, and you will experience the post-surgical discomfort and downtime only once.  

Most importantly, with a combined breast lift with implants plastic surgery, your surgeon will have a better opportunity to create a more conservative and comprehensive surgery plan. The surgeon can ensure that both lifting of the breast tissue and placing of implants is performed using common incisions.  

The right amount of loose skin removal can be determined and appropriate implant size can be chosen when the surgeon has an opportunity to perform both procedures together.  

The cost-effectiveness of the procedure also goes up because you will incur pre- and post-op expenses, surgeon’s fee, anesthesiologist’s fee, surgery center costs, and costs of medical tests and prescription medications only once.  

Combined Surgery – Cons  

Despite a conservative approach for incision placement, a combined breast lift and augmentation surgery will be more invasive than a single procedure. Recovery time will slightly longer too. While the cost-effectiveness is better, the absolute cost of the combined surgery would be higher than that of a standalone procedure.
