Breast augmentation with areolar reduction
Thanks for your inquiry and yes these two procedures are performed together all the time. Please seek the opinion of a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss, good luck.
Yes, a breast lift can be done at the same time as an augmentation. The areola can also be reduced at the same time.
Breast Augmentation with Breast Lift
I prefer to perform breast lifts, when needed, at the same time as the augmentation. The combined procedure addresses the desire for volume enhancement and the need for tissue repositioning. This can optimize aesthetic results with one anesthetic and one recovery period, which is more time and cost effective.
Stretched out areola are routinely reduced to an aesthetically ideal size at the time of the breast lift.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your goals.
Best of luck!
Breast Lift with Implants and Areola Reduction completed at same time
Thank you for this wonderful question! You are absolutely able to have a breast lift with implants at the same time. In fact, these procedures, when needed, are often completed together. The areola reduction will be part of your breast lift as most breast lifts require the type of incision which allows for this to take place. Although it is possible that these two procedures may require to be done at separate times this is a very rare occurrence. I encourage you to seek a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for complete details on this type of procedure. I prefer to utilize the Vectre 3d imaging system during my consults which will allow you the opportunity to visualize the end result of your procedure before it is even completed. I do hope you have found this information helpful and I wish you luck!
Can I get a BL w/implants and an areola reduction at once?
breasts may lose their elasticity and firmness which can be caused by different
factors such as pregnancy, massive weight loss, lactation and aging. To
reaffirm the breasts and restore the natural look your surgeon can perform a
mastopexy or breast lift. A breast lift
restores a firmer, perkier, and more aesthetically pleasing shape to sagging
breasts. This not only can improve a patient’s appearance by restoring her
youthful, feminine proportions, but also help bras and swimsuits fit more
comfortably and attractively. By removing excess, stretched out skin, reshaping
the breast tissue, and raising the nipple & areola into a more forward
position, a cosmetic surgeon can create a more youthful breast
contour. Stretched, large areolae can also be reduced during breast
lift surgery, creating an overall better proportioned, natural looking breast, Actually
the perkiness on a person or another, depends on patients skin and breast
the first 3 to 4 months!
Most breast lift techniques incorporate an element of areola reduction
Hello and thank you for your question. Most breast lift techniques incorporate an areola reduction strategy to help achieve the ideal breast shape. Make sure to seek consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon with expertise in aesthetic breast surgery for your ideal outcome. I hope this helps!

Breast Lift With Implants and Areolar Reduction #breastlift
- A breast lift can very easily incorporate a reduction in the size of your areola. In fact, quite often during a breast lift the areola is made smaller.
- We commonly perform breast lifts along with breast augmentation to help restore fullness and a more youthful shape for mothers who have noticed changes in their breasts after pregnancy/breastfeeding.
- Definitely meet with a board certified plastic surgeon (ASPS) to find out more.
Simultaneous breast lift with implants and areola reduction
Yes. Areola reduction is routinely part of the lift operation, and breast augmentation and lift surgery are commonly done together. It is a safe operation when the implant is placed behind the pectoral muscle. If you have moderate to severe droopiness or ptosis ask your surgeon if he/she uses the I.D.E.A.L. Breast Lift approach with the anchor or inverted-t lift. For more information on this and similar topics, I recommend a plastic surgery Q&A book like "The Scoop On Breasts: A Plastic Surgeon Busts the Myths."
Combo breast lift and augmenation
Combo breast augmentation and breast lift...Many surgeons will do the two procedures separately. Some do the breast augmentation first. Others the breast lift. Many do it at the same time. If possible I prefer to do at the same time as it saves patients money, limits the recovery time and the need to be away from work, and gives you beautiful breasts in one procedure. There are pros and cons to both that your surgeon can discuss to help make the right choice for you. There is no one way to do things and no one procedure for everyone. It should be customized to your individual needs.
