Women of the Houston, TX community who are unhappy with the size and position of their breasts might be unsure as to which surgical procedures are most appropriate for their needs. Dr. Thomas Wiener may be able to help in choosing a treatment that helps patients achieve the look they desire. Women with sagging breasts are often the best candidates for the breast lift procedure, but there are many instances when the breast lift treatment should be considered along with breast implants. By performing a breast lift with augmentation, women can restore the position of the breasts on their chest while restoring volume and increasing size during the same procedure.
What is a breast lift?
The breast lift procedure is performed to correct sagging breasts. It is also used to improve situations where the nipples are facing downward, repositioning them to a more natural and youthful placement on the breasts after the lift. Patients who have deflated breasts that have lost volume due to significant weight loss or pregnancy and breastfeeding will find that a breast lift alone will not help. Instead, the breast lift is then combined with augmentation, during which breast implants are placed during the same surgery.
Why choose a breast lift with augmentation?
Volume loss is best resolved with the use of breast implants, while positioning and lift of the breast is best resolved with a breast lift. Combining these two procedures will provide more dramatic results for women and allow them to feel more confident in their appearance. It makes sense to place implants if patients are already undergoing a surgical procedure in the area to eliminate the need for two separate surgeries and two types of remaining scars.
