Breast Augmentation vs Breast Lift: Which Option is Right for You?

breast augmentationDeciding between a breast augmentation or a breast lift is one of the more important medical decisions that a patient may have to make. While each of these procedures comes with its own pros and cons, only you and your doctor can decide which is right for you. The following guide is here to provide the necessary assistance so that you are able to make the most informed decision possible. Be sure to read on and learn more!

Breast Augmentation vs Breast Lift: Which Procedure Is Best For Me?

Breast Augmentation

There are a number of women who may decide that this procedure is best for them. For starters, there are those who may simply desire breasts that allow their figure to become more proportionate. If you’re not happy with your breasts’ size or shape, you could be a prime candidate for breast augmentation. Or you may simply want to be curvier or add volume to breasts that have flattened over time.

Most importantly, a patient should be making this decision because it is their personal desire. It is not a procedure that should be chosen because of undue pressure that is being applied by a friend or partner. Fortunately, the breast augmentation satisfaction rate is high, as over 90% of women report improved self-esteem after the process is complete.

Breast Lift

Before the breast lift conversation takes place, there is one question that must be answered. Do you plan to have children in the future? If so, a breast lift needs to wait. If the answer is no, then you can move forward with consultations. If your breasts have begun to sag, a breast lift can help. The same goes for a patient that has lost shape or volume.

Stretchy skin, flat or elongated breasts, and downward-facing nipples are also issues that this procedure is designed to address. If your breasts are asymmetrical, this is also something that can be discussed with an experienced surgeon. It is also important to note that augmentations and lifts cannot take place simultaneously.
