Aging, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, can all cause the breasts to lose shape and volume. These changes can be addressed with a breast lift or breast augmentation, but sometimes a combination procedure may be necessary. So what are the benefits of a breast lift with augmentation.
Breast lift vs breast augmentation
For some women who want to improve the appearance of their sagging breasts, a breast lift alone may not be enough. A breast lift will elevate the breasts and make them sit higher on the chest, but it will not add volume.
Increasing the size of the breasts is done by undergoing breast augmentation surgery, and this typically involves the use of silicone or saline breast implants.
During a breast lift the surgeon will remove excess skin, tighten the surrounding breast tissue, and reshape the remaining tissue.
Benefits of a breast lift with augmentation
A breast lift with augmentation is recommended in cases where breasts are droopy, but have also lost some volume. So if you have sagging breasts, and are also dissatisfied with the size of your breasts, a breast lift with augmentation may be the right procedure for you.
Doing both procedures at the same time will provide comprehensive breast rejuvenation results. The breasts will be perkier because of the breast lift, and fuller because of the augmentation. It all depends on your specific circumstance and aesthetic goals.
