Can I Combine Breast Implants With A Breast Lift Surgery?


When patients come into our offices to talk about breast augmentation, one of the things that Dr. Bruno will discuss–depending on if the patient is a good candidate–is a breast lift. While breast augmentation is a very well-known procedure, the breast lift operation is less well-known. On top of that, some patients actually require both procedures to get the results they want. But one question that has been the subject of heavy debate in the cosmetic surgery field is whether or not these two operations can be done in one surgery.

The issue at hand is whether or not combining a breast lift and augmentation will increase the rate of complication and reoperation rate. But a newly published study has answered this question once and for all. In this blog post, we’ll look at the results of the study and we’ll also discuss what the benefits are to patients who get these two procedures done in one sitting.

Every woman has an “ideal” shape and size breast that they wish they had. If you’re not happy with how your breasts are shaped, if they’re too big or too small, it’s time to start seriously considering the possibility of breast implants. Beverly Hills women have been able to finally get the breasts of their dreams by working with Dr. Bruno. Give us a call today at (310) 461-3855 to get started.

What’s the Difference Between Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation?

With a breast lift, there are no breast implants. Beverly Hills patients that get a breast lift usually have sagging breasts with the nipple angled downward. A breast lift will simply reposition the nipple and lift the breast back to its normal position. There is no size increase with a breast lift. For some women, a breast lift is all they need to give their breasts a more youthful, perky, and voluptuous appearance.

With a breast augmentation, Dr. Bruno will increase the size of the breast using breast implants. Beverly Hills women that want to restore lost breast volume or who simply want to have larger breasts are excellent candidates for this procedure.

What About Performing a Breast Lift and an Augmentation Together?

According to new research, performing a breast lift and a breast augmentation together is safe. In fact, there are some enormous benefits for patients to have these two operations performed together.

  • Reduced recovery time – Instead of having to recovery from a breast lift and a breast augmentation, patients only have to go through one period of recovery.
  • Reduced surgical time – Another big benefit is that patients only have to go under anesthesia once.
  • Reduced cost – In many (but not all) cases, having both procedures done in one surgery can save them money.

Whether you need a breast lift or breast implants, Beverly Hills patients should call Dr. Bruno today at (310) 461-3855. We would love to talk with you about what your goals are for your procedure and help get you started on this journey.
