It should not come as a surprise that two of the most common plastic surgery procedures are breast enhancement operations. Breasts come in all shapes and sizes, and a woman’s body often changes over time, so many individuals seek to improve their appearance by modifying this area. Breast augmentation and breast lift surgery (also known as mastopexy) have different purposes. For patients who want to address multiple concerns, however, benefits from each technique may be appealing.
Breast augmentation is designed to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. Breast lift surgery, on the other hand, is designed to lift and rejuvenate the breasts. Some women who would like to add volume and elevate their breasts wonder which procedure offers the best outcome for their needs and goals. There are many factors our board certified plastic surgeons will take into consideration when recommending one approach over another. Women with small breasts and a small amount of ptosis (droop) may be able to have breast augmentation alone. For more significant sagging on any size breast, a lift with breast implants typically can provide the desired rejuvenation as well as enlarge the breasts.
