Breast Lift vs. Breast Augmentation
Breast surgery is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery done today. While in the past cosmetic and plastic surgery was somewhat taboo, today’s society is much more accepting, and women are no longer keeping their surgery under wraps. Breast augmentation and breast lift surgery are now commonly discussed between women, and more women than ever are opting for the procedures. However, what are the main differences between these surgeries, and who can benefit from them? Read on for the answers to these questions.
Who Can Benefit from a Breast Lift?
Women who have sagging breasts following pregnancy or breastfeeding, or due to weight loss or aging can often benefit from a breast lift. This procedure is done to reposition the breasts to a perkier, more youthful position. There are a variety of incision patterns that can be used based on the degree of breast sag and your individual anatomy. Breast lift surgery is only done to correct sagging breasts, not increase breast size.
Who Can Benefit from a Breast Augmentation?
Women who believe that their breasts are too small, or have asymmetrical breasts can often benefit from a breast augmentation. This procedure increases the size of the breasts using breast implants. The two forms of breast implant used today are saline and silicone. The type of implant used and the incision pattern chosen will depend on your individual aesthetic goals and anatomy.
