Do You Need Both?
If you would like to increase the volume of your breasts and elevate them to a higher, more youthful position, Dr. Bermudez may suggest that you undergo a combination of breast augmentation and breast lift surgery. This is often suggested when breasts have a “hollowed out” appearance where the upper portion of the breasts have lost volume. To add volume and “round out” the breasts, implants or a patient’s own fat is used.
During a private consultation with Dr. Bermudez, he can talk you through the advantages and disadvantages of each implant type, and help you find the right implant size for your body and aesthetic taste. He can also determine whether or not you are a candidate for the breast fat transfer procedure.
Typically, when both surgeries are recommended, they are often performed at the same time. What can you expect from a combination of breast augmentation and lift surgery? The excess breast skin and fat that causes ptosis is removed, and implants or fat are then added for volume. The remaining breast skin is then tightened around the implant or transferred fat, the nipple is repositioned, and the result is a fuller, more youthful bustline. And the best part? You get to enjoy the benefits of the two surgeries— fuller, younger-looking breasts— with just one recovery period!
