Breast Augmentation vs. Breast Lift

As a woman considering breast surgery, you probably know well what things you would like to change about your breasts, but perhaps you’re not sure if a breast lift or breast enlargement is the best procedure for your goals. In certain cases, women even choose to take a combined approach in which the plastic surgeon lifts and re-shapes the breasts while also placing implants to increase breast size.

Although a consultation is absolutely necessary to discuss your options, generally a breast augmentation will provide the following:

  • Larger breasts
  • Enhanced cleavage
  • Improved breast shape
  • Improved symmetry and balance between the breasts

And on the other hand, a breast lift will generally provide the following:

  • Improved breast shape
  • Improved symmetry and balance between the breasts
  • Breasts lifted to a more youthful position
  • Reshaping of elongated, drooping breasts
  • Nipples lifted to point outward instead of downward
  • Resizing and reshaping of enlarged, stretched areolas

As you can see, these breast procedures have certain things in common, but overall they have slightly different outcomes. It comes down to whether you want to increase the volume of your breasts as well as improve their shape and youthfulness. Experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joel Beck can discuss all of these things with you and help you decide on a treatment approach that is right for you. He is wholly dedicated to helping each of his patients live more confident, fulfilling lives by achieving their cosmetic goals.
