Breast Augmentation or Breast Lift – Which is Right for You?
Have you decided to make changes to your body? Perhaps you have noticed the changes from aging, or you have finished having babies and breast feeding – you are ready to give your bust line a rejuvenation. But how to proceed is the question – a breast lift or breast implants?
Breast augmentation, commonly referred to as a boob job, involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts. The procedure can achieve a more rounded breast shape, improve asymmetry in the breasts and restore breast volume. Breast volume is often lost after significant weight loss or pregnancy.
What breast augmentation surgery can do:
- Improve balance of breast and hip contours
- Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
- Enhance your self-image and self-confidence.
What breast augmentation cannot do:
- Correct severely drooping breasts
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour.
With aging, weight loss or after pregnancy, the nipple area becomes enlarged. A breast lift will reduce this, as well.
What a breast lift can do:
- Rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted.
What a breast lift cannot do:
- Change the size of your breasts
- Round out the upper part of your breasts
Oftentimes, breast lifting can be done at the same time as breast augmentation.
