Many women struggle with droopy breasts following childbirth or significant weight loss, but breast lift or breast reduction surgery can improve the breast contours. However, based on their aesthetic goals, some patients may get better results with both procedures, so they will ask their plastic surgeon this question – Can I combine a breast lift with a breast reduction.
Breast Lift and breast reduction
Breast lift surgery is designed to make the breasts look perky and more youthful by removing excess skin, so that the breasts are in a higher position on the chest wall. Surgery may also involve repositioning the nipple-areolar complex.
The purpose of breast reduction surgery is to reduce the size of the breasts, so that they are more proportionate to the rest of the body. This is achieved by removing excess tissue, fat, and skin. Many patients choose breast reduction surgery in order to relieve symptoms such as pain in the neck and shoulders, which are ordinarily associated with overly large breasts.
Can you combine a breast lift with a breast reduction?
It is possible to combine a breast lift with breast reduction. The procedures are frequently performed together, in order to gain maximum breast rejuvenation results.
Women sometimes consult with a plastic surgeon regarding a breast lift, but based on their aesthetic goals, it becomes apparent that a breast reduction would also be appropriate.
Breast reduction is often done in combination with a breast lift to correct uneven breasts by reducing the size of the larger breast, so that the breasts look more symmetrical.
