The Benefits of Combining a Tummy Tuck with Breast Augmentation

If you want to see a total transformation in your figure, you might need more than one procedure. This is the case for patients who seek a tummy tuck and breast augmentation at the same time. Learn more about the benefits of combining a tummy tuck and breast augmentation from Moraitis Plastic Surgery.


Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy tuck procedures aim to create a more flattering midsection by removing excess skin, reducing stubborn fat, and repairing underlying muscles. They are a great option for clients who lost a significant amount of weight and struggle with loose skin around their stomach or mothers who have seen a change in their figure after pregnancy.


Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is designed to enhance the shape and size of the breasts. Silicone or saline implants are used to increase breast volume while creating a rounder shape. Breast augmentation is ideal for patients who want a more flattering bust with a larger cup size and fuller shape.


Tummy Tuck with Breast Augmentation

Some patients want to experience the combined effects of a tummy tuck and breast augmentation. These are often clients who have sagging skin around their stomach and have seen their breasts lose volume. 

Patients who have lost a moderate to significant amount of weight can also benefit from combining these procedures, as extreme weight loss can leave excess skin around the stomach and cause the breasts to lose fullness.

Tummy tucks and breast augmentations are often performed together as part of a “mommy makeover.” Mommy makeover procedures are designed for women who have experienced changes to their figures after pregnancy and childbirth. 

The weight fluctuations that occur throughout pregnancy and after breastfeeding can lead to loose skin on the abdomen and changes in breast volume. Including a tummy tuck and breast augmentation in a mommy makeover addresses both of these issues and helps women improve their figures.


The Benefits of Performing Breast Augmentation with a Tummy Tuck

Patients who have breast augmentation performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck can experience a wide range of cosmetic benefits.


More Sculpted Abdomen

A tummy tuck creates a slimmer, more sculpted abdomen in several ways. The first is by removing excess loose skin that has caused a sagging, drooping appearance. Tummy tucks also remove a small amount of stubborn fat that is difficult to lose with diet and exercise. In some cases, a tummy tuck can repair stretched or damaged abdominal muscles.


Fuller, Rounder Breasts

Breast augmentation will improve the appearance of the breasts by increasing their fullness and enhancing their shape. The breasts will be given more volume with silicone or saline implants. This added volume will make small breasts rounder and fuller.


One Surgical Procedure

Performing a tummy tuck and breast augmentation together eliminates the need for two separate surgical procedures. When both treatments are combined, the patient can achieve their desired figure faster.


Shorter Recovery Time

Separate tummy tuck and breast augmentation procedures require two recovery periods. Performing tummy tuck with breast augmentation at the same time can lead to a slightly longer recovery process, but it will not be as long as the recovery periods for two separate surgeries.
