With breast augmentation being the most popular cosmetic surgery each year, most people think of breast implant surgery when they consider breast enhancement. However, it’s important to know that there are many other options that can help rejuvenate the breasts aside from just adding volume. Sometimes, a combination of breast procedures can help achieve your ideal breasts goals with the benefit of one single recovery period.
What is Breast Enhancement?
Breast enhancement includes surgical or minimally-invasive procedures designed to augment, reshape, and lift the breasts for improved projection, size, and shape. There are many different reasons that women consider breast enhancement, but the most common reasons are changes during pregnancy and nursing, as well as genetics or aging. Although breast enhancement is most often performed using implants, some patients prefer to avoid them and opt for alternatives.
Candidates for Breast Enhancement
Patients who can benefit most from breast enhancement are women who would like larger and more shapely breasts. Additionally, women who experienced a loss of volume during pregnancy and nursing or over the course of aging can benefit. It’s important to be in good overall health and able to undergo a surgical procedure. Dr. DiFrancesco will discuss the right combination procedure for you during a consultation so that you understand your candidacy for each specific technique.

Breast Enhancement Combinations
Breast enhancement can be performed a few different ways and can be customized to your unique goals and preferences for your new breasts.
Breast Enhancement with Implants
Breast augmentation traditionally uses implants to restore volume and improve the shape and projection of the breasts. One extremely effective technique is to pair implants with a breast lift if your breasts are sagging or deflated. The breast lift restores the breasts to a more upright and lifted position for perky, youthful results. With the help of implants, many women enjoy rejuvenated, transformative results.
Breast Enhancement with Fat Transfer
Fat transfer can be performed after a liposuction procedure is performed to collect fatty tissue from another area of your body. The fat is injected into the breasts to restore volume naturally, without the use of implants. This technique can be paired with a breast lift for completely natural and lifted results, making it an effective option if you want to avoid implants.
Breast Enhancement Recovery
Whether with or without implants, each combination option will require some downtime. However, many patients opt for a breast enhancement combination procedure because it requires only one recovery period. Each option produces long-term, excellent results.
