Women are often dissatisfied with the look of their breasts. Age, pregnancy, and gravity often play a key role in why breasts sag and change shape over time. That’s where a breast lift comes in.
Additionally, women who have larger breasts often opt for breast reduction surgery to address discomfort and back, neck, and shoulder pain. But can you have both of these procedures together? You can! The two cosmetic surgeries can be combined for a complete breast enhancement.
Breast Lift and Breast Reduction
The breast lift and breast reduction are two completely different breast-altering procedures that are performed for different reasons. But in some cases, they are performed together to get the best outcome.
Before you decide on if the combination procedure is right for you, let’s look at each of these surgeries.
The breast lift procedure involves the removal of skin and fat as well as the manipulation of tissue to give the breast a firmer and perkier look. The cosmetic surgery can also include repositioning the nipples to give everything a more proportional and attractive appearance.
A breast reduction is ideal when you have larger breasts than you want and you’re looking to decrease their size. The procedure involves the removal of skin, fat, and breast tissue.
Most women who get this procedure do so strictly for medical benefits. Sometimes having large breasts can lead to back pain, neck pain, and even pain when you exercise. The procedure can also make it easier to fit into clothes and perform everyday activities.
Combining Both Procedures
The breast lift and breast reduction procedures are often combined to garner the best results. You should discuss all of your options with your Dr. Rosenberg. He can let you know which procedure is best for you.
There are quite a few benefits to having both procedures at the same time. By reducing the size of the breasts and lifting and reshaping them, you can save time and money and reduce your overall recovery time.
What Is The Recovery Period?
Once the procedures are over, your doctor will give you an outline of the recovery instructions. These should be followed as closely as possible.
Be sure to get a lot of rest and avoid any strenuous activities during your recovery period. In most cases, people can return to work and resume their regular activities within ten days.
As far as results go, most people see them in about 3-4 months, but it can take longer. You will notice your shirts and blouses fit better, and you will have a boost of confidence.
