Schererville, Indiana (PRWEB) April 1, 2009
To restore a more youthful breast shape, many women choose a breast lift in Indiana, but lately an increasing number of these women are combining their procedure with breast augmentation for a more shapely outcome and more cost-effective cosmetic enhancement over the long run. Dr. Gus Galante (http://www.galantemd.com), a board-certified plastic surgeon in Indiana, explains that while the current tight economy might suggest that fewer women would be interested in combination procedures, in reality combination approaches offer a number of advantages in terms of both price and results.
"Many women decide on a breast lift to rejuvenate sagging breasts that result from pregnancy, age, or weight loss," says Dr. Galante. "Sometimes, either the position or the volume of the breast is the main concern, but these two factors are so closely related that in most cases, women sooner or later want to address both."
A breast lift restores the breasts to a naturally attractive position. But for women whose breasts have also lost volume after breastfeeding or weight loss, a lift alone may not be the most pleasing or cost-effective choice.
"Many of my patients who choose a breast lift will return to the office down the road seriously considering breast enlargement in Indiana to enhance breast fullness," notes Dr. Galante. "This is why I recommend that many women initially considering just a breast lift also look into breast implants. They can be happier with their outcome and enjoy the cost savings of a single combined surgical procedure. If the sagginess is mild, breast implants alone may solve the problem."
Women are able to save hundreds and even thousands of dollars by combining their surgical procedures into a single operation. Another factor to consider is that clinical studies are showing that combining procedures can be as safe as having surgeries performed separately, but the benefits and risks must be fully evaluated and discussed. With these factors in mind, more and more women are deciding on having a more complete makeover rather than taking it one step at a time.
"Obviously, having both breast lift and breast enlargement in Indiana at the same time will cost more than just having one of these procedures, but in many cases the combined surgery also will produce far more pleasing results," adds Dr. Galante. "And with the financing options that continue to be widely available, most women can find a way to fit all of their makeover goals into their budget."
In Dr. Galante's experience, most patients who opt for combined breast surgery are more satisfied because they can enjoy enhanced position and volume. The final result can create shapely curves that flatter a woman's figure in a way that helps her look and feel more like herself.
