Can Liposuction Complement Your Breast Implants?

Posted on September 13, 2016

In many cases, combining plastic surgery procedures can offer a more comprehensive approach to achieving your desired final results than may be possible with just a single procedure. Women considering a breast augmentation may want to consider adding liposuction to their breast enhancement to complement their body shape.

Achieve an Hourglass Shape

While breast implants can help to create an hourglass figure by enhancing the volume of your breasts, including liposuction with your procedure may highlight your breast enhancement by simultaneously slimming your waistline.

Boost Your Body Image

Not only can combining liposuction and breast augmentation help you achieve the often-desired hourglass shape, but it can also significantly improve your body image and self-confidence. Although breast implants have been shown to have a positive effect on many women’s self-esteem and quality of life, the best results occur when women have realistic expectations about the limitations of each procedure.

When combining the two, you can reap the cosmetic benefits of both breast implants and liposuction for more comprehensive results than would be possible with just one or the other.

One Procedure, One Recovery

Many women often wonder how combination procedures might effect their recovery time. The good news is that combining liposuction and breast implants shouldn’t lengthen your recovery at all. In fact, because you’re essentially getting a two-in-one surgery, you won’t have to experience two recoveries for two different procedures. This can be especially beneficial for women with young children or competitive careers that may be difficult to take extra time away from.

If you’re thinking about either procedure, consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your various options for combination surgeries.
