Breast implants and liposuction

Breast implants and liposuction

01st Mar 2018

If you were wondering what two of the most sought-after plastic surgery procedures in the world are, you have the answer in the title: breast implants and liposuction. So it is not surprising that some women would prefer to undergo both procedures at the same time.

Breast implant surgery is performed with either silicone or saline solution implants, and the procedure often makes use of general anesthesia. Depending on the characteristics of each patient, it could last about an hour and a half or more. The final result depends on the initial anatomical particularities of the patient, as well as the size and shape of the volume used.

For example, for a patient with little breast tissue, it is not recommended to use a large breast implant. If the implant is too big and there is not enough breast tissue to properly cover it, chances are the implant will be visible through the skin and this does not make for a good aesthetic outcome. The plastic surgeon will indicate some volume margins for the implants, and going bigger than the maximum margin recommended by the plastic surgeon can trigger complications. But what if you still want to get bigger breasts and also avoid potential complications caused by having larger implants? In this case, liposuction can be a solution.

Do you wonder how liposuction can enhance the appearance of the breasts? Well, it is not a direct relationship; however, by sculpting the body in a suitable manner, liposuction can create the idea of having larger breasts than they actually are. This is one of the reasons why patients choose this combination of plastic surgery procedures. The plastic surgeon can use liposuction on the middle area of the body, the abdomen, flanks, and even the back. By slimming down the circumference of the body and creating a well-defined waist, the breasts will also be more emphasized and will appear bigger and more impressive.

The procedures are also combined with the purpose of enhancing the overall appearance of the body. In a vast majority of cases, the patient is interested in undergoing a breast augmentation but is also confronted with unwanted adipose deposits in certain areas of the body. So why not get rid of them while undergoing breast implant surgery?

Having breast augmentation in combination with liposuction provides improved aesthetic results, a major change in the aesthetics of the body, and the costs are lower than if the two procedures would have been performed at separate times. Moreover, the patient will only have to go through the recovery period once. As you can see, there are multiple benefits of getting breast implant surgery at the same time with liposuction. It is a good idea to discuss all your aesthetic issues with the plastic surgeon during the pre-operative consultation as some other imperfections might be corrected at the same time when getting bigger breasts.
