To Add or to Lift: Which Breast Surgery to Choose
- Posted on: Sep 15 2018
There’s a certain kind of confidence that exudes in every woman with a great bust line. Unfortunately, not all women are blessed with that kind of gift. But with today’s innovations, women now have the choice to enhance their breasts through plastic surgery. There are two popular breast surgeries out in the market that cater to a woman’s specific needs; the question is — which one to choose?
What is a breast lift?
Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift is performed to give the breasts a rejuvenating “oomph”. Specifically, this surgery raises the breasts, giving them a whole new firmer contour. This procedure is perfect for women who feel like their breasts are drooping and losing firmness. Sagging breasts can be a bit of a discomfort and a source of embarrassment to many women, which makes a breast lift the right option to counter it. A breast lift can also be done to reposition the nipple of the breasts to achieve a more natural look. However, this procedure does not actually make the breasts bigger.
What is breast augmentation?
On the other hand, a breast augmentation works by increasing the cup size by placing breast implants into the actual breasts. Patients are given two options, saline or silicone, when it comes to the material of the breast implant. Each type has its own pros and cons, which is why it is best to carefully discuss your options with Dr. Olack.
Which surgery is right for you?
Choosing to undergo plastic surgery — and which one to choose at that — should be a personal one. Of course, you have to consider the pros and cons. Generally, women who want to get rid of sagging breasts may consider a breast lift, yet they have to know it will cause them a significant amount of scarring. On the other hand, those who just want to increase their breast size can opt for a breast augmentation. A more dramatic result can also be achieved when both procedures are performed at the same time.
