Breast augmentation or breast lift?

If you have decided to make a change in your chest, you no doubt have a lot of questions about the many different procedures to choose from – to start with, you may wonder what the difference is between a breast augmentation and a breast lift.

What is the difference between a breast lift and breast augmentation?

Both procedures can improve the appearance of your chest, but they do very different things. In a breast augmentation, implants may be used to enhance the size and the shape of the breasts. It is used to give volume to the chest, to give a woman a curvier figure, and is often used to correct issues such as asymmetrical breasts and small breast size. Your doctor will be able to tell you about the different types of implants and can advise you on which one might be right for you.

A breast lift is used to eliminate loose and sagging tissue, “lifting” the breasts and making them look more youthful after the effects of pregnancy, nursing, or after a dramatic loss of weight. It can also be used to change the location of the nipple. Patients with small, sagging breasts typically see the best results from a breast lift procedure, but a breast lift can be performed on any size of breast.

Which one is right for you?

Which procedure is right for you depends on the results you would like to see. Some patients may benefit from both procedures – a breast lift can be done to raise sagging breasts while breast augmentation can be done to increase size and firmness. Whether you choose a breast lift, a breast augmentation, or both, the procedure will give you natural-looking results.
