Breast Augmentation or Breast Lift? Understanding Your Options
Breast surgery remains one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures year after year. At the English Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center, we understand that every woman has her own personal reasons for undergoing breast surgery. If you are questioning whether breast augmentation or breast lift can best attain your individual goals, a one-on-one consultation can determine your candidacy for each procedure. Here is a comparison of breast augmentation or breast lift to help you make an informed decision when it comes to which breast surgery may be right for you.
Breast augmentation is primarily performed to enhance the size or shape of the breasts. Using saline or silicone breast implants, this procedure can provide results that both look and feel natural. Breast augmentation can often be an ideal option for women looking to:
Increase breast volume
Restore lost breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss
Improve symmetry between the breasts
Create a more proportionate overall silhouette
Conversely, a breast lift is designed to eliminate excess skin among the breasts that is leading to a “sagging” appearance. Also known as Mastopexy, breast lift surgery can:
Reshape the breasts
Reposition the nipples and areolas
Give the breasts a smoother, firmer, more youthful look
Many women who opt for breast lift seek to address lax skin that may be caused by weight fluctuations, pregnancy, breastfeeding, simple gravity, or the natural aging process.
It may be that a combination of the two procedures is the best option for your goals. During your initial consultation, we will go over all of your options and determine which procedure can address your concerns with the best possible results!
