A recent study in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery confirmed that combining breast augmentation and breast lift in the same procedure is safe. This is a procedure I have been performing for some time now with predictable results.

Doing this procedure involves two opposing forces: In a breast augmentation, the breast is enlarged and the existing skin stretched. In a breast lift, the breast is lifted by removing excess skin. Therefore, combining the two involves a delicate balance and precise judgment. The larger the breast is made, the less it may be able to be lifted. Conversely, a smaller implant may allow more lifting on a droopy breast.
