Breast Lift vs. Breast Augmentation
Denver, Aurora, Lone Tree and Boulder, Colorado
The breasts are a sign of femininity, fertility, and beauty. Women feel more confident when they feel beautiful and feminine. Many women, however, are unhappy with the size, shape, and position of their breasts. There are two breast surgery options to help you get the look you desire. Depending on what your personal goals are for how you wish to look, you may want either a breast lift or breast augmentation.
Deciding which breast surgery is right for you may be difficult. You will want to contact an experienced breast surgeon to help guide you with your decision and to answer all of your questions.
A breast lift raises the breasts to a more youthful and perky position on the chest. The areola is also moved to a higher position on the breast. Many women choose to have a breast lift because their:
- Skin is stretched
- The areolas are enlarged
- Breasts are elongated, flat, or stretched
- Nipples are below the crease of the breast
- The breasts are uneven and one hangs lower
- Areolas point downward and are low on the breast
A breast lift can correct all of these issues. The breasts may become stretched and misshapen due to:
- Extreme weight loss
- Loss of elasticity in the skin
Your breasts can be shaped and positioned to a more pleasing place on your chest. A breast lift cannot add volume. Breast augmentation is the best procedure to have to add volume to your breasts. If you want your breasts in a more youthful position and have more volume, you can have both a breast lift and breast augmentation.
Breast augmentation uses breast implants to add volume, shape, and curves to your breasts. This procedure is perfect for women who:
- Want to feel more feminine
- Want their clothing to fit better
- Want more confidence in how they look
- Are unhappy with their breast shape and size
- Have had a change in breast size and shape due to pregnancy or weight loss
Breast augmentation fills out the breasts with the use of breast implants. Depending on your goals, breast surgeon Dr. Broadway will help you decide what size and type of breast implant is right for your body. Your body type and shape will help determine which breast implants are perfect for your body.
Breast implants often fill out minor excess skin that may make the breasts sag. You will want to have a breast lift with breast augmentation if your breasts have a large amount of excess skin and if your breasts sag too much. Breast implants alone will not be able to give you the results that a breast lift with breast augmentation can achieve.
