If you’re like one of the millions of women who are considering getting breast implants this year, you may have also thought about improving another area of your body while you’re at it. Combining cosmetic procedures can often enhance your overall results and may potentially cut down on expensive surgical fees and lengthy recovery times. The highly experienced and talented board-certified plastic surgeons at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery are proud to offer a long list of exciting treatments and procedures that can be combined with breast augmentation for patients in the Long Island, NY area hoping to maximize their outcome and truly transform their body.
Can I have a breast lift at the same time as breast augmentation?
Absolutely! In fact, the breast lift is one of the procedures that is most often paired with breast augmentation, and the results can be stunning. In addition to increasing breast volume, patients who undergo breast augmentation with a lift are also able to restore their breasts to a more youthful, perky position.
What other procedures can be combined with breast augmentation?
The list of cosmetic procedures that can be performed at the same time as breast augmentation is seemingly endless, so it is important for patients to schedule a consultation at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in order to better understand all of the possibilities and determine which procedure(s) may be most appropriate for their particular case. During this appointment, Dr. James N. Romanelli or Dr. John Layliev will discuss your areas of concern, explain your various options in detail, and answer all of your questions at length before recommending a customized surgical plan that will help you best achieve your goals.
The specific procedures that are combined with breast augmentation will vary from case to case and depend on a patient’s complaints, concerns, and desired overall results. Four cosmetic surgeries that are most often paired with breast augmentation – other than breast lift – include:
1. Tummy tuck: This extensive surgery involves removing excess skin, fat, and tissue, as well as tightening the underlying abdominal muscles, in order to achieve a flatter, smoother, more taut midsection. The tummy tuck, formally known as abdominoplasty, is especially beneficial for patients who have had children or experienced a significant amount of weight loss that resulted in loose skin and/or diastasis recti.
2. Arm lift: Brachioplasty, or arm lift, is another skin removal surgery that is often performed in conjunction with breast augmentation and other procedures. During an arm lift, the surgeon will excise loose, hanging skin from a patient’s arms in order to give them a more natural, practical, beautiful contour. Similar to the tummy tuck and thigh lift, an arm lift is particularly useful for after weight loss patients who struggle with excess skin.
3. Liposuction: A large number of people develop stubborn pockets of fat at some point in their lifetime, often due to pregnancy and childbirth, the aging process, or simply genetics. This can be an extremely frustrating problem, as these areas of fat don’t respond in the same way or at the same rate as the rest of the body, regardless of diet and exercise efforts. Liposuction is a highly effective solution for permanently removing small to moderate deposits of fat cells in the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, and even the face and neck.
4. Brazilian butt lift: Thanks to celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian, more and more women in Long Island, NY are looking to enhance the size and shape of their rear end. The Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, is a fantastic solution that uses a patient's own fat from another area of the body to augment and sculpt the buttocks.
In addition to combining these procedures with breast augmentation, they can also be performed in conjunction with a breast reduction for women looking to downsize their overly large or heavy breasts.
Which procedures are included in a mommy makeover?
For women looking to combine multiple procedures into a more extensive surgery that can address several concerns at once, the extremely popular mommy makeover is a fabulous option. Rather than being a defined procedure, the mommy makeover is actually a customized surgical plan that is tailored to each individual patient. After weight loss patients may include various skin removal treatments in their mommy makeover, while women who have concerns associated with childbirth and breastfeeding may opt for breast augmentation, breast lift, and tummy tuck as the major components of their mommy makeover.
How can I find the best breast augmentation surgeon?
As with any procedure, choosing a qualified, certified, and experienced surgeon to perform your breast augmentation is essential. This becomes even more important when considering a combined procedure, such as a mommy makeover, because the surgeon needs to be exceptional in the various techniques required of the surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. James N. Romanelli and Dr. John Layliev are proud to have helped thousands of women successfully transform their bodies and change their lives through breast augmentation, mommy makeovers, and other exciting treatments.
