A breast lift and a breast augmentation with implants are two of the most popular breast procedures in plastic surgery. Here at our Pottsville plastic surgery practice, we get a lot of questions from women about the ideal breast surgery — should they have a breast lift? Or breast augmentation with implants? Or can they have both? If you find yourself with the same questions, read on below!
First of all, if your current concern involves sagging breasts brought about by massive weight loss, pregnancy, or due to aging, but you want to maintain the current size and volume of your breasts, a breast lift is is ideal. On the other hand, if you would like to significantly increase the volume of your breasts, breast augmentation with implants interest you.
Combining Both is Possible!
The good thing about both breast surgeries is you can choose to combine them here at our practice. However, it should be noted that not all women could benefit from such combination as implants may negatively compromise the results of a breast lift due to the weight of the implants causing your breast skin to sag and stretch.

Let us help you figure out the total length of time that you need to abstain from smoking through a personal consultation with Dr. Kimmel.
