Should I Get Breast Augmentation or a Breast Lift?


Cosmetic breast surgery can rejuvenate your figure and help you love the way you look. There are several great options available depending on your concerns and goals. Here are a few things to think about when deciding between breast augmentation and a breast lift:

  • Breast size: If you want to increase your breast size or restore the volume that you lost due to pregnancy or weight fluctuations, breast augmentation could be a great fit. It uses saline or silicone implants to create a fuller-looking chest. Breast lift surgery, on the other hand, does not increase breast size.

  • Breast symmetry: Breast augmentation is a great way to achieve symmetry if one of your breasts is smaller than the other. However, if your breasts are uneven in height, a breast lift may be a better solution.

  • Nipple position: You may be a great candidate for a breast lift if your nipples point downward or fall below your breast crease. A breast lift will restore the nipple and areola to a higher, more proportionate position. It can also reduce the size of stretched areolas.

  • Excess or sagging skin: Breast sagging is a common concern that most women will experience eventually. It can be caused by any number of things, including pregnancy, gravity, heredity, and normal aging. A breast lift eliminates excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue to enhance your breast contour.

Keep in mind that you don’t have to choose between these two popular procedures. A combination breast lift and breast augmentation can help you enjoy a more youthful breast appearance. Not only will it elevate the position of your breasts, but it will also enhance their size and create attractive upper fullness.
