Breast Implants Plus Body Contouring: Are They Better Together?

While breast implants can be an excellent figure enhancement, many women may not feel as though their goal appearance has been attained without a bit of additional help.

Here’s a look at why body contouring procedures are frequently combined with breast augmentation to help women achieve ideal proportions.

Mommy Makeovers

The customized set of procedures known as a mommy makeover is built on the concept of a comprehensive enhancement rather than a single procedure. Pregnancy and childbirth can often leave women with excess stomach skin, broken or separated abdominal muscles, lingering abdominal fat and deflated breasts.

A tummy tuck can repair abdominal muscles, remove excess fatty tissue and tighten the abdominal skin for a sleeker, younger-looking stomach. When combined with breast implants, the procedure can help women regain a youthful figure. If needed, liposuction can treat stubborn fat bulges.

Post-Weight Loss Enhancement

Women who have worked to achieve weight loss can feel as if their efforts aren’t properly showcased by their new shape. This is often because stubborn pockets of fat can linger around the love handles, thighs, upper arms, back and under the chin despite diet and exercise.

Additionally, post-weight loss breasts can take on a deflated appearance due to lost volume. Implants combined with liposuction for treating subcutaneous fat can bring out the best in a post-weight loss figure by keeping curves in the right places.

Ideal Body Proportions

For some women, either breast implants or body contouring alone won’t achieve ideal proportions. Combining the procedures can mean transforming a pear-shaped figure into the classic hourglass, or turning back the clock to provide the firmer and fuller figure you may have enjoyed in younger years.

By combining implants with body contouring, women can enjoy the benefits of an enhanced bust line without unwanted fat and excess skin.
