Many women think of breast enhancement as a single surgery, whether that means a breast reduction, breast augmentation or a breast lift. In reality, the most successful results are often accomplished by taking a combination approach, using procedures that work well together to bring out the best features in your figure.
Breast Implants + Fat Transfer
Breast implants are probably the most immediate image that spring to mind when thinking about enhancing the figure. Either silicone or saline implants can offer a great solution to increase total breast volume for a curvier, sexier look. Implants can offer dramatic curves, or a more subtle look. Yet, implants alone may not be quite enough to achieve your ideal; incorporating fat transfer breast augmentation along with synthetic implants can help.
The process of fat transfer, or microfat grafting, involves collecting fat cells from one area of the body (usually the thighs or abdomen) and transplanting them to another—in this case, the breasts. While fat transfer on its own can be used to augment the breasts as well, more dramatic volume requires implants in addition to fat cells. When these two augmentation approaches are combined, the results offer a volume increase along with smooth, even contours and a realistic feel that simply can’t be matched with synthetic implants alone.
Breast Lift + Breast Implants
For some women, needing more volume isn’t the problem. There are many patients who already enjoy a generous breast size, but just aren’t pleased with the shape or placement of their breasts. Whether placement hangs naturally lower or these are changes that have occurred in the body as the result of pregnancy or weight loss, a breast lift can restore the figure to higher, firmer and more youthful proportions again.
Although a lift on its own can make a significant improvement in the appearance of your breasts, incorporating implants as well gives your natural assets even more of a boost. Combining a breast lift with breast implants will deliver a fuller profile with the firmness and placement of youthful breasts for a flattering look that’s still very natural.
Breast Reduction + Breast Lift
According to the RealSelf "Worth It" ratings, breast reduction carries one of the highest post-operative satisfaction ratings of any cosmetic surgery, and it’s no wonder why. Reducing an overly large breast size can help alleviate physical problems like chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, skin rashes and discomfort during physical activities. Most women report significant emotional benefits along with an improvement in their overall quality of life following breast reduction as well.
While reducing the total amount of breast tissue is a good start, including a breast lift along with a breast reduction ensures that the breasts will not only be smaller, but also perkier and firmer. During a breast lift, the remaining breast tissue is reshaped for beautiful, more youthful contours so there’s never any compromise between size and aesthetics. Combining a breast lift with breast reduction offers the best of both worlds.
