Breast Lift vs. Breast Augmentation: Which is Right for You?

Before and After Photos

Breast surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed today. There are a variety of different breast surgeries available, including breast augmentation and breast lift. While these procedures can sometimes be performed together, they are designed to achieve different goals. In this article, Dr. Sofer will discuss the differences between a person who is a candidate for a breast lift and just a breast augmentation.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that involves the use of implants to increase the size of the breasts.

A good candidate for breast augmentation is someone who is in good overall health, has very little breast tissue that doesn’t present sagging, and is dissatisfied with the size or shape of their breasts.

Breast Lift

Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that is designed to lift and reshape sagging breasts. As we age, our skin loses elasticity, and the breasts can begin to droop. Breast lift surgery can help to restore a more youthful and lifted appearance to the breasts by removing excess skin and tissue. A mastopexy is typically recommended for women who have lost breast volume due to weight loss or pregnancy. This procedure can be performed with or without implants.
