When you think of breast surgery, do you automatically think of breast augmentation? If so, this is no surprise, as breast augmentation has been the most popular form of cosmetic surgery for some time now. However, breast lift surgery is also a popular option that many may have forgotten about. Read on to learn more about breast augmentation and breast lift, and how they differ.

You May Need a Breast Augmentation if: You are unhappy with the size of your breasts. Breast augmentation can help to increase the size of the breasts in those who feel that their breasts are too small, or those with asymmetrical breasts. This procedure is performed using breast implants, which adds fullness and projection to the breasts. The most popular breast implants used today are silicone, saline, and gummy bear. A consultation can help to determine which type of breast implant is right for you.

You May Need a Breast Lift If: You have drooping breasts. A breast lift can help to lift drooping or sagging breasts to a more youthful, perky position. Breasts often begin to sag following pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging. While a breast lift can restore a youthful breast position, it cannot change the size of the breasts.

A breast augmentation and breast lift can also be combined to lift the breasts and augment their size. This combined procedure is a popular option for those who have lost breast volume and perkiness due to pregnancy.
