Many women that walk through our doors aren’t aware of the full extent of their options when it comes to breast surgeries. You may come in seeking an augmentation to correct pregnancy or age-related sagging when in reality you’d be better suited for an uplift. Let’s take a closer look at a few of your options when it comes to enhancement so you can make an informed decision about what’s right for you.
Breast enlargement surgery is designed to increase the size and improve upon the shape of the breast. Enlargement is often done by inserting an implant above or below the breast muscle. However, breast enhancement can also be achieved through fat-transfer procedures. Breast enlargement is ideal for women who are simply unhappy with the size or shape breasts they were naturally given.
A breast uplift is a surgical procedure aimed at correcting age or pregnancy-related sagging. Uplifts can give you a perkier, more youthful-looking appearance without increasing fullness. The goal of a breast uplift is to remove excess skin, tighten underlying muscles, and reposition the nipple higher on the breast. Your procedure is customized to address your individual aesthetic concerns.
Combination procedures are highly common among many women. Why? Well, undergoing a breast enlargement and uplift at the same time allows for dramatic results with a single recovery time. This procedure is known as an Augmented Mastopexy. Deciding to have one done now, and the other down the line can be slightly more complicated and produce two unique scars.
Pregnancy, nursing, and menopause can all wreak havoc on our bodies. They can leave you with lost volume, incredibly lax skin, and poor muscle definition. You may be a good fit for both a breast enlargement and an uplift if you’re bothered by the size, shape, or position of your current breasts.
While some women may be suited for one procedure over the other, most can benefit from combination procedures. During your in-person consultation, one of our experienced surgeons will be able to discuss all of your options in detail. Boost your self-confidence and regain a new lease on life with breast enhancement surgery.
