Breast Lift vs. Breast Augmentation

What is the difference between these procedures? And which one would be better for you? Both breast lift and breast augmentation surgeries enhance the appearance of the breasts; however, they do so by addressing different aspects of breast appearance. Read on to learn more about these procedures and which one (or both!) could be right for you.

Breast Lift

What is a breast lift?: Breast lift surgery is a procedure that corrects breast sagging. The benefits of undergoing a breast lift include increased breast firmness, improved nipple position and size, and overall perkier, younger-looking breasts.

Who should get a breast lift?: Any woman whose breasts have begun to sag or lose shape due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy can benefit from a breast lift. Candidates for breast lift surgery should not be pregnant, should not smoke, and should otherwise be in good physical health.

What can a breast lift do for you?: A breast lift can restore a more youthful breast appearance by correcting sagging and improving breast firmness, placement, and shape.

How is a breast lift performed?: First, you (the patient) are placed under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will begin by making the appropriate incision (determined during your consultation). Next, the excess, sagging skin will be removed. The areolas will be reshaped and repositioned, along with the remaining breast tissue, to create a more youthful and firm breast shape. Finally, the incisions will be closed.

Breast Augmentation

What is breast augmentation?: Breast augmentation is a procedure that enhances breast size, fullness, and shape using breast implants. The benefits of breast implants include fuller, larger breasts with a customized look that matches your preferences, whether you desire a subtle, natural-looking boost or a dramatic, voluptuous enhancement.

Who should get breast augmentation?: Any woman who wishes her breasts were larger or fuller can benefit from breast augmentation. Breast implants can also help women whose breasts are asymmetrical or whose breasts were once larger but have become deflated due to weight loss or pregnancy. Candidates for breast implants should not be pregnant, should not smoke, and should otherwise be in good physical health.

What can breast augmentation do for you?: Breast implants can give you larger, fuller, and firmer breasts. They can also create better symmetry, cleavage, and body proportions. 

How is breast augmentation performed?: First, you (the patient) are placed under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will begin by making the appropriate incision (determined during your consultation). Next, the implants will be inserted and centered under the nipples. Finally, the incisions will be closed.

Breast Augmentation With Lift

After learning more about these two procedures, if you are still uncertain which one is right for you, chances are you might need both! For many women, a combination breast lift and augmentation is the perfect solution.

A breast augmentation with lift is a great choice for women who want to enhance breast shape, placement, volume, firmness, and fullness all at once. This procedure is especially popular among women who have begun to notice the negative effects of aging or who have experienced significant weight loss or pregnancy (especially multiple pregnancies).
