If you’re interested in a breast enhancement surgery but are unsure about what type of enhancement to get, your aesthetic goals will have the biggest impact on your decision.
The two procedures most people go between are a breast lift and a breast augmentation. While both procedures produce great results, it really depends on what size you would like to achieve, recovery time frame and your aesthetic concerns.
Breast augmentations involve the use of breast implants or a fat transfer for size enhancement. If you’re more concerned with the position of the breasts and are after a perkier profile, a breast lift may be the procedure best for you and your goals. In general, a breast lift doesn’t change a person’s cup size but rather removes any excess skin and raises the position of the breasts.
For the most part, a breast lift is less invasive than a breast augmentation due to the incisions that are made and the fact that you are not adding an implant to the breast. If you have less time to spare for recovery and do not want to worry about the addition of implants in the breasts, a breast lift may be your best option.
If you want to adjust the size of your breasts, a reduction or augmentation will help you to address that. However, if your aesthetic concerns are more about creating a more youthful contour to the breasts and you want to be able to wear less supportive bras, a breast lift will keep the size of your breasts in-tact. During a breast lift procedure, any excess skin will be removed for a firmer less saggy appearance.
