Breast enhancement trends have been focused on achieving a very smooth and natural look. One way to accomplish that is to combine a breast lift and a breast augmentation into one procedure, allowing you to go for a more modestly sized implant while still getting the boost of volume you want.
If you’re still on the fence about which procedure could be right for you, take a look at this quick guide.
What Is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is ideal for women who are struggling with drooping or “deflated” breasts. This procedure removes excess skin and repositions your breasts higher on the chest wall. The result is a firmer, more youthful look and feel.
A breast lift doesn’t remove any breast tissue, but it might make your breasts appear slightly smaller because of the excess skin that was tightened.
What Are the Benefits of a Breast Augmentation with a Lift?
If you want to address sagging breasts and improve their shape and position, but also want to increase their size, a combination breast lift and augmentation could be the solution for you. During this procedure, you get the best of both worlds — a perkier appearance and a boost of volume. Many women find that they are able to choose a slightly smaller implant with the addition of a lift.
Still have questions about this combination procedure? During your consultation, your surgeon can go over your options in more detail, listen to your individual goals and help you decide if this is the right choice for you.
