If you’re a new mom who isn’t happy with what childbirth has done to your breasts or you simply want to add a little more of the perkiness from your youth, a breast augmentation is the ideal plastic surgery procedure for you.
But why just stop there? Many women are frightened by getting more than one procedure done at once because of the possible health risks, but new studies have shown that receiving a breast lift and breast augmentation with implants can be safely performed in a single session.
How Two-in-One Plastic Surgery is Safe
According to a report released in the January issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, which is the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, experts reviewed the results of 430 breast lift procedures performed between 2005 and 2009.
Of those procedures, 332 cases involved breast augmentation and implants at the same time. The average age of the patients was 47 and one-third was receiving revision surgery to fix a botched procedure.
The overall complication rate for patients getting simultaneous breast lift and breast augmentation procedures was about 23 percent. The most common problems included hardening of the capsules around the implant (capsular contracture), drooping and scarring. The same problems were evident in re-operation procedures.
When the results of the group of women receiving only one procedure was evaluated, the re-operation rate was about 10 percent, which was not at all different from the 13 percent re-operation rate of women who received both procedures at once
Advantages of Two-in-One Surgery
There are also a lot of advantages to a double surgery. It costs less, avoids disappointing results between different procedures and lowers the risk rate of two surgeries, which makes it the perfect plastic surgery for moms who want to get back to their kids right away.
