Breast lift surgery improves the appearance of the bust by removing excess and unnecessary skin and firming underlying tissue for a perkier and more youthful look. Because the procedure involves the removal of sagging skin and the repositioning of breast tissue, breast lift surgery can have a minor impact on bra size – by as much as one cup according to a recent study published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
The size reduction caused by breast lift surgery is negligible for many women. In fact, women with heavier breasts often benefit from a slight reduction in size. However, for women with smaller breasts to begin with, even one cup size can have a rather profound impact. If you fall into the latter camp, Indianapolis plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata would be happy to discuss the option of combining breast lift with breast augmentation during your initial consultation.
By combining breast lift with augmentation, Dr. Fata is able to address a wide range of aesthetic imperfections including:
- Breast size and shape
- Nipple location
- Ptosis (sagging tissue)
This combination offers an ideal way to produce more noticeable and complementary contours to the entire upper body, particularly in instances where volume and lift have been impacted by pregnancy and nursing, weight fluctuations, or the simple march of time. During your initial consultation at our Indianapolis plastic surgery office, Dr. Fata will carefully assess your frame, listen to your desires, and help you determine if a combination of procedures is best.
Pregnancy and Breast Appearance
A combination of breast surgeries is common as part of the mommy makeover procedure. Pregnancy can have a significant impact on the appearance of the breasts and, for many women, these changes do not self-correct. If you are unhappy with the ways pregnancy has altered the symmetry and perkiness of your breasts, and have issues with other parts of your body that have been changed by motherhood, Dr. Fata can discuss combining breast and body procedures to address all areas of concern and produce a look that is more in line with your ultimate aesthetic goals.
