Breast Enlargement Surgery: Combination Surgery Options
Breast enlargement surgery is one of the most popular in the UK and due to its short duration in the operating theatre, it's often able to be combined with other procedures. This means one recovery period for the patient and only undergoing one anaesthetic. Patients' desires obviously vary from one to another and not everyone is hoping to achieve the same results. Your surgeon will be able to let you know what combination surgeries are possible during your free consultation, always taking into account your safety, recovery and of course, high-quality results. This article looks at the most commonly requested combinations.
Breast Enlargement and Breast Uplift Surgery
This is a common procedure amongst patients who are wanting to increase their breast size and restore lost perkiness. The aim of this breast enlargement and breast uplift procedure is to remove excess skin that causes drooping and sagging, lifting the breast up to a higher, more youthful position and then insertion of the implant to increase size. Your surgeon will also let you know in your free consultation if this combination would be beneficial for you and your results.
Breast Enlargement and Nipple Reduction/Inverted Nipple Correction
During a breast enlargement procedure, your surgeon may be able to alter your nipple too, be it an inverted nipple correction or to reduce the size of your areola, it's highly possible your surgeon can carry this out at the same time. Be sure to discuss your concerns and expectations in consultation and your surgeon will discuss your options.
The mummy makeover is an umbrella term for various breast and body combinations including but not limited to:
- Breast Enlargement and Tummy Tuck
- Breast Enlargement, Uplift and Tummy Tuck
- Breast Enlargement, Uplift and Tummy Tuck and Liposuction
This combination procedure is typically chosen by patients who have had children or lost a large amount of weight. You may be looking to regain some of the confidence you may have lost when your body changed to accommodate a baby or following significant weight changes. Of course, due to the length of the surgery, it's much more invasive and will mean a longer recovery period. Your Patient Care Adviser will be able to tell you what combinations are possible and which of our surgeons specialise in such procedures.
Breast Enlargement and Liposuction
Liposuction can often be added to most surgeries to remove stubborn fat that cannot be removed with diet and exercise, it is not a weight loss surgery. Patients sometimes ask their surgeon to propose what could be done about "problem areas" whilst in their free consultation. Your surgeon will then discuss what's possible. A patient may seek to have this at the same time as breast enlargement surgery to further contour the body whilst only undergoing one surgery.
Deciding to have surgery is a very personal decision and each patient has their own reasons for wanting to move forward. During your free consultation your surgeon is going, to be honest, and realistic about possible results and help you make the best decision for you, be it a breast enlargement on its own, a combination, or deciding against surgery at all. We're here to help you make an informed choice which is why we always offer a free consultation to all our cosmetic patients.
