What’s the Difference Between Breast Lift & Breast Augmentation?

Are you not totally satisfied with your breast shape and size? Think about what will make you happy. Do you want to have a larger cup size, smaller cup size, want your breasts to be perkier, or get rid of the droop? If any of this resonates with you, let’s find out the difference between breast lift & breast augmentation.

The Woman With Challenged Cups

If you crave larger breasts like you see on other women, there is a surgery which can redefine your body and enhance the breasts you already have. It is known as breast augmentation. It is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. It is quick and effective and will increase the fullness and overall appearance of your breasts.

By inserting breast implants, Dr. Ali can change the size and fullness of your breasts, but not the position. With the help and recommendation of your surgeon, you can achieve your best volume for your body frame and your goals.

This procedure can not only help those with small breasts, but also women who have lost volume due to pregnancy and breastfeeding and produce the most natural looking results.

The Woman With Gravity Challenges

As we get a bit older, gravity affects many things including our breasts. What were once perky and buoyant breasts have become, well, you know, sagging. You are no longer happy with where they sit, how they sit, and the position of your nipples. 

A breast lift is perfect for women who are not going to have any more children and want to change their drooping breasts.

In order to repair your drooping and elongated breasts, Dr. Ali will remove excess skin and reshape your breasts back to that youthful look you once had.

The nipple may also be repositioned higher on the breast.

You May Be a Candidate for Both Procedures

In fact, these procedures complement each other. If both the position and size of your breasts are concerning to you, a breast lift and breast augmentation can be performed at the same time. Having them both together lifts your breasts, increases their size, and reshapes them in one outpatient procedure. 

Both procedures require 3 to 4 weeks of healing time with a slow return to your normal activities.
