Dr. Mark Schusterman, board-certified plastic surgeon based in Houston, TX, explains the advantages of performing a breast enlargement and breast lift in a single surgical operation.

HOUSTON, Feb. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Board-certified plastic surgeon, Mark Schusterman

of the Texas Center for Breast and Body, wants patients to know it's possible to safely have both breast enlargement and breast lift (mastopexy) procedures done in the same surgery.

Many plastic surgeons refuse to perform a breast augmentation and breast lift in one operation, as it's more challenging to achieve perfect breast symmetry when the procedures are performed together. Some doctors are also concerned about a greater risk of complications, such as wound separation and nipple loss.

Yet, a study of 297 patients comparing patients who had only a breast lift to patients who had combined breast augmentation with breast lift found that complications were not significantly different between the two groups.

The study, published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, found that just 12.4 percent of patients who had combined breast implant surgery with a breast lift required an additional operation, while 100 percent of those who had staged breast augmentation and breast lift procedures required at least two operations (by definition).

"There are significant advantages to lifting and augmenting the breasts in the same surgery, including a single recovery, lower costs, and less anesthesia," says Dr. Schusterman.

But not all plastic surgeons have the experience or skill level to perform a combined procedure.

"It's critical for patients who are considering cosmetic or reconstructive breast procedures to choose experienced, board-certified surgeons who have an in-depth understanding of human anatomy," says Dr. Schusterman. "We use state-of-the-art plastic surgery techniques in our practice, and we're committed to excellent patient-centered care—it's why our peers named us The Best Doctors in America for five straight years," he adds.

The Texas Center for Breast and Body offers a full range of breast, body, and facial plastic surgery procedures as well as a suite of non-surgical cosmetic treatments, including dermaplaning, laser treatments, and injectables. Visit http://www.alwaysyouthful.com/ to learn more.
