If you have loose-skinned, “drooping” breasts because of weight loss, pregnancy, or the effects of age, a breast lift can restore your appearance. However, if you have lost a significant amount of volume in your breasts, you may also want to take advantage of a breast augmentation.
Today, improved plastic surgery techniques allow our Atlanta breast enhancement surgeons to safely perform both a breast lift and a breast augmentation in a single surgical session (technically termed an “augmentation-mastopexy”). However, not all women are good candidates for this combined procedure. In certain cases, breast implants that are too heavy may actually compromise the results of a breast lift, since the weight of the implants can cause your breast skin to stretch and sag again.
In order to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for a combined breast lift/breast augmentation, our surgeons will perform a careful pre-surgical evaluation of your skin’s elasticity, your initial breast size, your body type, and other important factors. Sometimes, a breast lift alone can give the appearance of more volume and fullness in your breasts. We will discuss your options with you in detail during a personal consultation.
