If pregnancy, weight gain, age, and gravity have caused your breasts to sag or appear less perky, chances are you may be considering a breast lift. But is a breast lift alone going to help you achieve your desired goals or would combining it with breast augmentation and implants help deliver the results you are really looking for. Let’s take a closer look at a breast lift without implants and the differences that you can achieve by combining breast augmentation and a lift.
When a Breast Lift Is All You Need
A breast lift, known as mastopexy, is a procedure designed to remove excess breast skin while also tightening the surrounding breast tissue to reshape the breasts and give them a perkier, more youthful appearance. A breast lift will not add volume or increase the size of your breasts. If you are happy with your existing breast volume and all you are looking for is a perkier appearance, then a breast lift will be enough to help you reach your goals.
When Adding Breast Implants Is Right for You
However, if you are hoping to achieve more volume, increase your cleavage, better fill in the cups of your bra or want to correct asymmetry, then adding a breast augmentation with breast implants to your breast lift may be the perfect solution. This combination procedure will allow you to achieve your body contouring goals in one surgical procedure, thus minimizing your cost and your recovery time, while also delivering optimal results.
