What do you do if you are unhappy with your breast size, shape or droop? Which breast procedure is right for you? Several surgical options are available to you depending on what you would like to achieve. Two of the most popular procedures are breast augmentation and breast lift.
It is an outpatient procedure designed to improve the shape and position of the breasts, without reducing their size. It is particularly used for breasts which sag or droop ptosis. Some patients will have a better shape to their breast such as increased superior fullness if an implant is used at the time of mastopexy. The procedure can also be combined with a minor breast reduction to reduce the breast width if desired.
A great way to have all your questions answered. This can be done in association with a breast implant and may be performed as a single or as a combined procedure. This is a difficult question to answer as there are many variables, how large your breasts are, how dropped or ptotic they are, the elasticity of your skin etc. As a generalisation if you stand with your arms raised straight up, and the breast position is approximately where you want them, then you probably can get away without a lift. However it is best to have a consultation for an opinion from a surgeon who does both implants and lifts.
One way to think about the difference between these procedures is to consider the different results each procedure is trying to achieve. Because it involves implants, it technically also reshapes the breast—the surgeon has to decide how high to place the implant. Breast augmentation is a good choice for women who are looking to enlarge their bust line and are comfortable with an increase of at least one cup size.
