How to Decide if you Need a Breast Augmentation or a Breast Lift
Are you uncomfortable with your breast size, volume, or shape? We understand your struggles. With time, breasts can lose shape and begin to droop. Fortunately, you can undergo surgical procedures to restore or change the size or volume of your breasts.
Some of the most common surgical procedures include breast augmentation and breast lift. Let’s take a look at the specifics and then with the help of a surgeon, you can decide which is right for you.
What You Should Consider
There are many elements you need to consider before you decide whether a breast augmentation or a breast lift is right for you and your needs. Some of the points your should examine include:
Are you unhappy with the size of your breasts? You may feel like your breasts are too small or too large for your liking. One breast could be larger than the other and you want them to even them out. If that’s the case, consider getting a breast augmentation. Consulting a surgeon can give you a better idea of your options for breast implants.
Do your breasts feel saggy or droopy? Some factors like pregnancy and weight loss can affect the volume of your breasts. A surgeon can restore the fullness and roundness of your breasts by performing a breast lift or breast augmentation procedure.
If you wish to change the size of your breasts and also restore their volume, a breast augmentation is likely the better option. On the other hand, if you wish to restore your breasts to more youthful position, a breast lift may be a better fit.
Position of the Nipples
Do you feel as if your nipples are positioned too low? When your breasts sag, your nipples might droop as well. In this case, a breast lift would be the better option. A breast lift will restore the position of your nipples and make your breasts appear fuller and rounder.
Combining a Breast Lift with Breast Augmentation
While breast augmentation mostly focuses on the volume and size of your breasts, a breast lift involves altering the position of your breasts. In some cases, both procedures might be necessary.
Since a breast augmentation does not change the position of your breasts, you can combine both procedures to achieve your desired goal. You can also complement a breast lift with a breast augmentation to achieve a natural look.
