Misconceptions regarding breast lift and augmentation combination procedure
Your surgeon and you can choose the combination procedure of augmentation mastopexy in your case when the goal is to address the droopiness in the breasts as well as volume loss. Due to age related changes, weight loss or pregnancy, women may face a number of physical changes, especially in the breasts which can be altered with this combination procedure. However, there have been several misconceptions regarding augmentation mastopexy which may have kept potential patients away from it.
It is important that you understand these so that your results are what you expected and the recovery is good.
Since it is a combination procedure, it seems like one surgery.
You must understand that these two are different surgical procedures. Breast augmentation helps with enlargement of the breasts, and breast lift makes your breasts perkier. It is impossible to achieve the results you are hoping for with just one surgery in a safe manner. Depending on the degree of ptosis, the surgeon will stage your procedure in a manner which gives you enough time to heal between the surgeries. This minimizes surgery related risks like loss of sensation, skin breakdown or loss of the nipples.
There will be one areolar incision and there will be minimal to no scarring.
Most cosmetic surgeries will lead to scarring which heals and fades with time. The number of incisions you get during your augmentation mastopexy will depend on a few factors, the most important being the degree of droopiness. For severe sagging, more than once incisions will give you the desired lift and perkiness. For minimal to moderate sagging, fewer incisions will be used during breast augmentation and lift procedure.
It is essential that you discuss your goals and desires clearly to the surgeon to determine the kind of procedure and technique required during your augmentation mastopexy. The combination procedure is complicated with a number of decisions involved which makes it very important that you get all your questions answered during the consultation. The most important decision you have though is to choose a well experienced board certified surgeon who specializes in restorative and cosmetic breast procedures.
