Which Is Right for Me: a Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation?

Which Is Right for Me: a Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation?

A breast lift and breast augmentation are both breast surgeries that enhance your bust, but do so in different ways. A breast lift increases the volume and size of your chest while a breast lift raises sagging drooping breasts to give you a higher, more youthful profile.

At Plastic Surgery Arts Center in Webster, Texas, we want you to get the look you desire and that helps you look your most beautiful. During your consultation, we’ll help you figure out if you’d benefit from breast augmentation, a lift, or, because the surgeries are complementary, both.

We’re currently offering 20% off breast augmentation and breast lift procedures, so now’s the time to figure out which breast surgery is right for you and set up your appointment to get started.

Why choose a breast lift

If you have sagging tissue and excess skin that makes your boobs hang unattractively, a breast lift is for you. You may also choose a breast lift if sagging skin has caused your nipples to hang too low.

Women may experience drooping breasts due to the natural effects of gravity, aging skin, weight changes, or breastfeeding.

A breast lift reshapes your existing breasts, but doesn’t add volume. Dr. Garcia offers several types of breast lifts. He’ll determine the approach that’s best for you depending on the size of your areolas, the volume of your breasts, and the degree of sagging.

Why choose breast augmentation

Breast augmentation changes the size and shape of your breasts. Dr. Garcia recommends this surgery if you have asymmetrical breasts, small breast size, inadequate cleavage, or poor breast projection.

Breast augmentation involves the placement of silicone or saline implants. Silicone implants tend to feel more natural but do require a larger incision. Saline implants are a good choice for patients who have ample breast tissue.

Both types of implants last 10-15 years and are FDA approved.

After a thorough physical exam and recommendations from us that take into account your body form, your lifestyle, your natural foundation, and your aesthetic goals, you choose the size and style that’s best so you feel confident with your look.

We also consult with you to determine the best placement for the incision and to discuss any risks associated with breast implant surgery.

Combining a breast lift with augmentation

Putting breast lift surgery together with augmentation often gets you the best results. Breast lift surgery can sometimes reduce your breast size. If you’re already unhappy with the size of your breasts, it’s best to combine an augmentation with your lift.

Many women find that weight changes, pregnancy, and aging can cause significant volume loss along with breast sagging. When implants are added to a lift, you get a youthful profile and extra volume that fills out your chest.
