Do I need a breast augmentation or lift?


There are many reasons why women may be unhappy with their breasts, which is why breast enhancement surgery is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure. Pregnancy, weight loss, aging, hormones and development can affect the size and shape of the breasts. During your consultation with Dr. Weinstein, you will discuss your options for breast enhancement, which include breast augmentation, breast lift or both. Read on to learn more about the differences between the two surgical procedures.

Breast augmentation

More than 300,000 people in the United States undergo breast augmentation each year. This popular surgery addresses the size and shape of the breasts. There are a variety of reasons why women want to have this surgery done. Women who have experienced pregnancy or weight fluctuations may notice loss volume. Some women have abnormally small or underdeveloped breasts, while others have elongated breasts or breasts that are different sizes. Some women seek this surgery after having previous breast surgery.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Weinstein will go over the different surgical techniques best suited for you based on your breast anatomy and concerns. This includes the placement of the incision and implant type, size and shape. While saline implants are an option, most patients opt for silicone implants as the silicone gel feels most like natural breast tissue. The newest option is gummy bear implants, which are silicone gel implants with higher viscosity.

Breast lift

While breast augmentation addresses the size and shape of the breasts, a breast lift will reshape and raise sagging breasts. Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift consists of removing excess skin and tightening breast tissue to create a more youthful contour. Often, women choose to have a breast lift with breast augmentation to increase the breasts’ size and firmness and correct any imbalance in shape.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Weinstein will discuss the various incision patterns and techniques and make recommendations for you based on your age, skin elasticity, size and shape of your breasts and whether implants will be involved.
