Breast Augmentation Vs. Breast Lift: Which is Best for Me?

Breast surgeries. You’ve probably heard every name for them from boob job to breast implants. The truth is, many women don’t understand the wide variety of options they truly have. Breast surgeries are highly-individualized procedures. You may come into our office asking for a breast augmentation when what you really want is a lift.

While the terminology can be confusing, the two procedures are completely unique to one another. What’s right for one woman, may not necessarily be the case for another.

So, which is best for you? Depending on your individual needs and goals, you might be a good candidate for either a breast augmentation, a breast lift, or both. Take a look below to start the decision-making process today.


Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery allows women to enhance the size and shape of their breasts through implants. You have full control over everything from type (saline or silicone), size, shape, and where the implant is placed (above or below the muscle). The procedure can create a fuller appearance, provide a better fit to clothing, and boost self-confidence.

You may want to consider a breast augmentation if you are unhappy with the cup size you were naturally given or suffer from age-related volume-loss.

Breast Lift

A breast augmentation can improve the appearance of loose, sagging skin, however, it cannot reposition the nipple to a more youthful position. That’s where a breast lift comes in. Women who are okay with the size of their breasts but would like a firmer contour should consider a breast lift.

Combining both procedures is ideal for women that want to increase the size, improve the shape, and/or reposition the nipple higher for a more youthful appearance. Having a breast lift performed alongside an augmentation can provide dramatic results with one recovery time.
