Women all over the country are choosing to have their breasts enhanced through breast augmentation surgery and breasts lifts. Both options can improve your appearance and help you feel more confident, but which option is right for you. Here’s what you should consider:
Why Choose Breast Enhancement?
There are many reasons women choose to enhance their breasts through breast augmentation and breast lifts. Some of these reasons include:
- Women who have naturally small breasts want to increase their size.
- Women want breasts that are in better proportion with the rest of their bodies.
- Some women use these procedures to correct asymmetrical breasts or improve the overall shape of the breasts.
- Pregnancy, weight loss, breastfeeding, and aging can all change the breasts over time. In some cases this results in sagging, and in other cases this results in a loss of volume. Breast enhancement procedures like breast lifts and breast augmentation can return breasts to their younger size and position.
Breast augmentation increases the size of your breasts through implants. Implants are either saline or silicone. Saline implants are inserted first and then filled. Silicone implants are filled first and then inserted into the breast. The type of implant you choose will partially determine the placement and size of the surgical incisions. The two types of implants can also look and feel slightly different. Both types of implants have advantages, your doctor can help you decide which implant is best for you.
A breast lift is a procedure designed to elevate the breasts to a more youthful position. During the procedure the doctor will reposition the breasts and remove excess skin. The final results can leave the breast and nipple at a more appealing, natural angle.
Which Procedure Should You Choose?
Both procedures offer distinct benefits. If you are satisfied with the position of your breasts but feel that they are too small, a breast augmentation may be the best option for you. If you are happy with the size of your breasts, but unhappy with their position, a breast lift may be a better option.
In many cases, the two procedures can be combined to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing results. If you’d like larger breasts that are in a more youthful, perky position, it may be best to combine the two procedures into one effective treatment.
