Most women who are looking to enhance their breasts turn first and foremost to breast augmentation. The breast augmentation procedure can add volume to deflated breasts or enhance the curves of women with naturally small breasts. However, some women have breast sagging as well as breast volume deficiency. For these women, combining a breast lift with breast augmentation surgery will be a more effective way of enhancing their breasts and improving their appearance.
Why Should I Undergo Breast Augmentation?
The breast augmentation procedure involves the insertion of implants behind the breasts and usually behind the pectoral muscles to increase their size. With implants of various materials, sizes, profiles, textures, and styles available, breast augmentation can create an entirely customized appearance that matches the patient’s desires, lifestyle, and anatomy. Some women desire breast augmentation to enhance naturally small breasts or to improve their body contour. Others want breast augmentation to counteract the negative physical effects of pregnancy, nursing, aging, and significant weight loss.
Why Should I Undergo a Breast Lift?
The breast lift procedure lifts and reshapes sagging breasts to improve their projection and position. Depending on the extent of sagging and the shape and size of your breasts, Dr. Jervis will determine the best procedural technique for you after taking your goals and expectations into consideration, and showing typical pre-and post-procedure photos. Women who undergo breast lift surgery have usually experienced breast sagging as a result of pregnancy, nursing, aging, gravity, weight loss, or a loss of skin elasticity. While multiple factors can cause breast sagging, breast lift surgery successfully improves breast shape and position. Determining whether a lift alone, implants alone, or both can be a complex situation and is best determined after a consultation with a plastic surgeon. There are “in between” cases who have the option of doing augmentation with or without a lift. The ultimate decision is up to the client, with the plastic surgeon as a coach. Do be advised that some surgeons are very aggressive and tend to push for very extensive surgery for obvious (monetary) reasons. The same process occurs with other procedures such as abdominoplasty versus liposuction.
