The breast augmentation and breast lift are two popular procedures to enhance the appearance of your breasts. Before you choose one of the other, take a look at these common breast concerns to determine which one is really the best for you!

I like the way my breasts look in a push-up bra

If you are happy with the size of your breasts, a breast lift might be all you need! An easy and effective way to see what your breasts would look like after a lift is to put on a push up bra without padding. A breast lift can lift your breasts to a similar perky position by removing excess skin and tightening the tissue. A breast lift will also address the nipple position and size. If your nipples point downward, you can benefit from a lift.

My breasts have lost volume after pregnancy/weight loss

After pregnancy or weight loss, your breasts will lose some volume, causing them to sag. In this case, a breast augmentation with implants could help you get your full breasts back and fill out loose skin. If severe loose skin is present, a breast lift can be added to optimize your results. You might also consider having your breast procedure as part of a larger set of contouring procedures for a full body makeover!

My breasts have begun to sag with age

With age, you’ll likely begin to notice your breasts sagging due to skin laxity. A breast lift can be performed to remove your excess skin, tighten the tissue, and lift your breast to a more youthful position on the chest. Those who have had a breast augmentation when they were younger might once again find themselves unhappy with their appearance. A breast lift can be used to address new sagging and restore your full breasts.
