Serving Greenwood, Greenville, Columbia, South Carolina & nearby Augusta, Georgia

Breast augmentation may need to be combined with breast lift for optimal results after weight loss. Call Greenwood plastic surgeon Dr. Ted Vaughn at 864-223-0505 to learn moreWeight loss can cause a change of volume in the breasts. Typically the most effective way to deal with volume loss is through breast augmentation, though alone this is not always the best solution following weight loss.

Excess skin, sagging breast tissue (ptosis), and changes in nipple position are common with weight loss. These issues may actually be exacerbated by breast augmentation alone, making this single breast surgery ill-suited for optimal results. Breast lift combined with augmentation may be the best way to address ptosis, excess skin, and unbecoming nipple location following weight loss.

Board-certified Greenville plastic surgeon Dr. Ted Vaughn can add the placement of breast implants to your breast lift procedure to address myriad imperfections brought about by weight loss. These include:

  • Asymmetry
  • Diminished size and shape
  • Loose and sagging skin
  • Droopy breast appearance

This combination of breast surgery techniques allows for complete personalization of results and helps ensure a look that is complementary to your natural anatomical features. During your breast augmentation consultation at our Greenwood office, Dr. Vaughn will take great care to fully understand your desires and suggest procedural steps that will best help you reach all of your goals.
