By Jerome Edelstein, MD

Toronto breast enhancement procedures such as breast augmentation and breast lifts, are some of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures due to their ability to enhance and reshape the breasts. Breast augmentation, also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, uses implants to increase the size of the breasts, while a breast lift or mastopexy, lifts the breasts to help them appear more youthful and perky. While each procedure can be completed separately, there are many benefits to combining the two complementary procedures.

Benefits Of Combining A Breast Lift & Breast Augmentation

Depending on your goals for the procedure, it may be advantageous to combine a breast lift and breast augmentation. Patients frequently choose to undergo both surgeries simultaneously in order to.

Financial Benefits Of Combining Breast Enhancement Procedures

One of the greatest benefits of combining a breast augmentation with a breast lift is the reduced cost. Rather than paying for two separate surgeries, you will only be required to pay for one. While the cost will be higher than it would for a breast augmentation alone due to the surgery’s more complex nature, the need for additional anesthesia, and the increased time spent in the operating room, the overall cost will be lower than it would be for two individual surgeries. In addition, you will only need to go through the recovery process once, which means less time off of work is required.

How To Determine Whether You Need Both A Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation

The best way to determine whether you would benefit from a combination procedure is to speak with your plastic surgeon about your goals for the surgery. After assessing your anatomy and listening to your desired outcome, your surgeon will make a recommendation and clearly explain the advantages and disadvantages of each option.While it is possible to complete a breast augmentation without a lift, patients who choose to augment sagging breasts without also undergoing a breast lift may not be completely satisfied with the results. Similarly, individuals who choose to lift their breasts without an augmentation may wish they had also opted for breast implants to increase their cup size. However, a second surgery is always an option if you are not ready to commit to both surgeries simultaneously.If you are interested in a breast enhancement procedure, we welcome you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jindal or Dr. Edelstein, experienced and skilled plastic surgeons in Toronto with extensive experience performing both breast augmentation and breast lift procedures.
