Breast augmentation


Authored by:

Breast augmentationBreast augmentation and breast lift surgeries are the most popular plastic surgery procedures worldwide, accounting for over half a million procedures annually in the United States alone. 

While breast augmentations are the more prevalent of the two breast procedures, breast lifts are beginning to outpace breast augmentations with a 70% growth in the number of procedures. 

Yet what exactly is the difference between the two procedures? Why would someone get a breast augmentation over a breast lift and vice versa? Does getting one mean you can’t get the other? To find out the answers to these questions and more, keep reading. 

Why Get a Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentations utilize breast implants to increase the size and volume of your breast. If your goal is to increase the size of your breasts, you need a breast augmentation. 

Breast augmentations can come in various sizes and utilize different types of implants. You must consult a doctor to understand which implant and size is right for you. Your skin, health, height, and other factors can all determine the size of the implant best suited for your body. 

Why Get a Breast Lift?

Breast lifts address the position of the breast. Due to age, pregnancy, or any other reason that results in loss of volume or skin laxity, your breasts may sag. 

A breast lift addresses breast ptosis (sagging breasts) by giving the appearance of firmer breasts through excess skin and breast tissue removal. Sometimes, the procedure also involves repositioning the areola and nipple. 

Can You Get Both Procedures Done? 

Breast augmentations and breast lifts address very specific needs. An augmentation aids with size and volume, while a breast lift addresses the position of the breasts. 

If you’re already experiencing sagging breasts, a breast augmentation alone may not address that, so your doctor may also recommend a breast lift. 

For ideal results, make sure you work with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has both the knowledge and experience to deliver your goals.
