Female breasts

There tends to be some confusion on the differences in breast enhancement procedures. Breast lift and breast augmentation procedures are different in how they are performed and what they can accomplish. They can also be performed together. If you are unhappy with your breasts and are considering plastic surgery, you need to know the basics on the different enhancement surgeries that are available.

Breast Lift Surgery

Mastopexy, or breast lift surgery, can reshape and lift breasts that are droopy or sagging from aging, breastfeeding, pregnancy, weight loss or other factors. Women with small to medium-sized breasts that have stretched skin and drooping breast tissue can benefit from a breast lift to create firmer, perkier breasts. While women with heavier breasts can have a breast lift, the results may not last as long. However, a breast lift does not change the size, but it only elevates the existing tissue and tightens the skin.

Breast Augmentation (Natural or Implants)

Breast augmentation is for women who want larger breasts. This can be accomplished with natural augmentation, which is a fat transfer, or breast implants (silicone or saline). Fat transfer augmentation can usually only increase breasts one cup size, but the results are very natural. Implant augmentation comes in many sizes, profiles and shapes to create the desired breasts. However, an augmentation does not lift existing breast skin or tissue, only adds volume.

Combining a Breast Lift and Augmentation

Many women in their 30s-50s consider a breast lift with augmentation. Once child-bearing years are in the rearview mirror, they want to reshape, enhance and lift their breasts to a more youthful appearance. This procedure addresses the sagging skin and tissue, while adding volume and the desired profile or perkiness. Women can choose implants or fat transfer for the augmentation and also have the breasts lifted and reshaped.
