The difference between a breast augmentation and breast lift


Dr Margaret Anderson is an experienced female surgeon in Adelaide

If you are considering cosmetic surgery to enhance your breasts it is essential that you know your surgical goals as this will impact the treatment you will receive. For some women a breast augmentation will be suitable, however for others a breast lift may achieve the goals they are looking to achieve.

Either way, it is essential that you understand the difference between these two treatments so that you can make an informed decision.

Explaining the breast augmentation procedure

A breast augmentation will involve increasing the size and projection of the breasts to create a fuller appearance. This procedure involves the placement of implants into the breast tissue and can improve the shape, size, and placement of the breasts.

Explaining the breast lift procedure

A breast lift procedure is used to correct the loss of breast volume and skin elasticity by elevating the breasts.  There are a number of different factors that can cause the breasts to appear disproportionately low. The procedure involves the relocation of the nipple to the appropriate positioning and the removal of any excess skin that can create a sagging appearance. This procedure can be combined with a breast augmentation in order to improve the positioning and size of the breasts.

When it comes to breast surgery it is essential that you choose an experienced surgeon
