Breast Lift Vs. Breast Augmentation: Choosing the Right Option for You

There are many things that women might dislike about their breasts—size, shape, firmness, and tightness. Many women believe that the best way to correct these issues is with breast implants. However, breast augmentation is not always the best answer. Sometimes a breast lift is all you need to get the results you are looking for. Here’s more information to help you make the right decision.

Sagging Breasts

If you have sagging breasts, you may just need a breast lift. If you still have the volume in your breasts that you prefer, but they are stretched and sagging from age or breastfeeding, you can get a breast lift and have amazing results. However, if you have sagging breasts accompanied by volume loss, as can happen with breastfeeding mothers, you may want to opt for breast augmentation.

Breast Size

Many women assume that what they need to do to gain a cup size is to get a breast augmentation. However, some women can gain a half cup to a full cup size through a well-executed breast lift. A breast lift firms and tightens the skin, as well as concentrating the volume of the breast into a smaller, firmer area. This can help you gain some size without implants. If you want to go up more than this in size, breast augmentation will be appropriate.

Breast Lift and Augmentation

Sometimes a breast lift is a complementary and necessary addition to the breast augmentation surgery. If you have sagging or stretched breasts from aging or breastfeeding, a breast lift is often necessary along with the breast augmentation to give you the firm and supple breasts that you are seeking.
