Do I Need A Breast Augmentation Or Breast Lift?

Whether or not you choose a breast augmentation or breast lift depends on the specific issues you are hoping to overcome or change. Breast enhancement can be accomplished in many ways, but the most popular are the breast augmentation surgery, which involves increasing your bust sue, while the breast lift concentrates on repositioning the breasts.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these procedures and see if perhaps one or both would suit you for what you want to accomplish.

Breast Lift

A breast lift is also known as a Mastopexy. This procedure raises and firms the breasts and gives them a new contour. This technique does not make the breasts any larger, but the positioning may provide additional cleavage.
The breast lift is helpful for sagging breasts, however, scarring is more apparent than with a breast augmentation. Because the breast size is not increased with a breast lift alone, many women are disappointed with the less dramatic. outcome.

The benefits of a breast lift would include:

• drooping breasts are no longer
• repositioning of the nipple leaves a natural look
• better contour and firmer breasts

Breast Augmentation

The main reason for a breast augmentation is to increase the breast size by placing implants. Implants come filled with either silicone or saline. Saline can be less expensive, but fear of leakage and a less natural look makes silicone the more popular choice.

The benefits of breast augmentation include:

• There is a variety of sizes and shapes, which allow women to achieve the look they want.
• Scarring is inconspicuous
• Breasts are larger after the procedure

Should you have droopy breasts, it may be necessary for you to have both a lift and augmentation. An augmentation alone will not reposition the nipples on a sagging breast. If both procedures are needed, they can be done in a single procedure.
