The laws of gravity are undeniable. The force from the pull of this natural phenomenon can wreak havoc on a woman's breasts. This is why the vast majority of women will experience some degree of drooping and loss of elasticity in their breasts. Life's circumstances, including pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and the natural process of aging, can really take its toll on a woman's bust line. While every woman is different, the degree of change often has many considering the combination of a breast lift along with breast augmentation for a complete rejuvenation of the appearance of their breasts. While the two procedures are very different from each other, they are also very complementary when combined.
Women who are curious about breast enhancement turn to board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters. Dr. Walters is a leading expert and a highly trained professional specializing in both breast augmentation and breast lift procedures. His patients’ aesthetic goals are his number one concern. Dr. Jules Walters takes the time to listen intently to their concerns and then formulates a surgical plan to deliver results. Here is some helpful information on why a breast lift may be necessary and how it can improve your overall breast augmentation results.
Breast lift vs Breast Augmentation
A breast lift is a powerful procedure to enhance the perkiness of deflated breasts by removing excess skin and tightening underlying tissue to reshape the breasts and move them into a perkier position. Breast augmentation increases the cup size of a woman's breasts with the help of an implant. When women seeking breast augmentation have a condition called ptosis (also known as breast sag) Dr. Walters may advise his patients to have a breast lift along with breast augmentation for maximum benefits. Both procedures have incredible benefits, and when combined, your breasts will be fuller, higher in position, and younger-looking all at once.
How do I know if I need a Breast Lift?
Many women in the New Orleans and Metairie areas who have breasts that have become droopy and saggy are prime candidates for a breast lift. It happens seemingly overnight and women are left with breasts that are deflated and oddly shaped. The loss of what was once your “normal” looking breasts can often be corrected with a breast lift procedure.
During your initial consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Walters, he will assess your breasts and give you the feedback you need to make an informed decision. In some cases, when patients choose an implant alone without a lift, it can actually produce unpleasing aesthetic results, and leave patients with larger droopy breasts. While a breast lift does involve incisions that will have scars, the aesthetic improvement is worth it. After the breast lift is performed, an augmentation may be desired to add volume to the now lifted breast. When patients undergo a breast lift on its own, the breasts tend to be more compact and smaller, since some of the skin is removed during the breast lift procedure.
Common signs you may benefit from a Breast Lift with a Breast Augmentation
Ask yourself these questions to help determine if you could benefit from a breast lift along with breast augmentation:
Do your breasts appear to sag or have lost their shape?
Are your breasts an elongated shaped?
Do your nipples fall below the breast crease?
Do you have stretched skin and elongated areolas?
The benefits of combining breast enhancing procedures
Breast implants can provide a slight lift, but when breast augmentation is performed alone, it typically can not correct moderate to substantial dropping. On the flip side, for women who opt for only a lift; the size of the breasts will not be increased without the implant used during a breast augmentation. When patients address all of their concerns together, the two procedures can help give women optimal results when it comes to both size and placement.
Here are some of the fantastic benefits of a breast lift combined with a breast augmentation procedure:
Increased breast volume and fullness
Improved breast contour
A more youthful appearance

A reduction in the size of the areola
One surgery and recovery time for beautiful results
