Are you wanting to enhance your breasts, but don’t know if you should get a breast augmentation or a breast lift? You’re not alone. It’s important to educate yourself on the different types of procedures offered so you know you are choosing the right one for you.

Why get breast enhancement surgery?

There are many factors that play into a woman deciding to get breast enhancement surgery. As women age, their breasts often lose their youthful shape and begin to sag. This can especially be seen in women who have breastfed their children. Other women may have smaller breasts and want to do breast enhancement surgery to achieve a larger cup size. 

What is the difference between the two surgeries?

Breast augmentation, or mammoplasty, is a surgery where breast size is increased by placing implants underneath breast tissue or chest muscles. This procedure gives the overall roundness and cup size that the patient is desiring. A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure that is done by removing excess skin and tightening breast tissue to raise the breast. This can also help with any sagging.

Depending on your goals for your overall breast appearance, one or both of these procedures may be the answer for you.  For those looking for a more natural alternative to breast enhancement surgery, fat transfer to breast might be a better solution.
