A combined surgery of breast augmentation and breast lift, also known as augmentation mastopexy, is a popular procedure for women who desire fullness, as well as a lift. However, there are some common misunderstandings about this combined procedure. Here, we will address these misconceptions.

Misconception #1- Because I am choosing to have my breast augmentation and lift done at the same time, only one surgery will be needed to achieve my desired results.

It can be difficult to see your expected results in one operation when combining two procedures. Depending on the severity of sagging of your breasts and your size goals, it may be safer to schedule the procedures separately to allow your body to heal and recover from the operations near Vancouver, WA. This can also lower the risk of complications, such as skin breakdown, reduced nipple sensation, and even complete loss of the nipple.

Misconception #2- I only need an incision around the nipple/areola, so I won’t have any scars on my breasts.

Everyone’s breasts are unique and require different incisions in various locations to achieve desired results. Breasts with more sagging usually require more incisions than breasts that sag less. More incisions will properly lift and shape drooping breasts. Talk with your surgeon in Portland, OR to determine where your incisions will be placed to achieve an optimal outcome.

For a successful breast surgery, it is imperative to discuss any questions, concerns, and goals with your surgeon before undergoing any procedure. If you are interested in a breast augmentation and lift, contact Dr. Bohley today to schedule a consultation today.
