When to Choose a Breast Lift Over Breast Augmentation

 As a woman, your breasts are important to you. They are a part of who you are, giving you confidence in your femininity and making you feel attractive. You may have been happy with your breasts at one point, but changes in your body can affect your breasts as well.

If you have experienced weight loss or weight gain, been pregnant or simply feel the pull of gravity as you get older, it can make your breasts begin to droop down toward your waist. They can sag to the point that they lose their volume and make you feel old.

You can do something about it by having a breast lift procedure to restore the shape and location of your breasts.

When it’s Best to Choose a Breast Lift Instead of Breast Augmentation

You may think that breast augmentation is the best solution to improve the appearance of your breasts. However, this is not necessarily the recommended alternative unless you are looking to increase the size of your breasts or resolve a problem with symmetry.

If you are dealing with breasts that have lost their perkiness because of changes brought on by time or pregnancy, a breast lift is the more practical approach for you.

What Happens During a Breast Lift Procedure?

Unlike breast augmentation, a breast lift does not involve getting breast implants. If you are happy with the size of your breasts and only want to give them a more youthful boost back to a higher position, a breast lift can help you.

During the procedure, your plastic surgeon will improve the shape of your breasts and you can expect the areolas and nipples to be raised to a higher position as well.

Finally, any excess tissue or loose skin will be removed to have a tightening effect. In the end, your breasts will no longer be headed for your abdomen and will be raised to their ideal position. You aren’t changing your size; you’re just giving your breasts a lift.

While a bra can give the impression of a breast lift, your breasts will fall back into place as soon as you remove any support garments. For permanent results, consider a breast lift.
