With summer coming to an end and fall quickly approaching, now is the perfect time to consider how you want to feel in your skin when the summer season quickly comes back around. Breast surgery is one of the most popular options for preparing far in advance for that season, but many women are not sure whether a breast lift or a breast augmentation will help them achieve their goals. At your initial consultation, Dr. Jervis will review your desires along with your physical anatomy to help you choose the best procedure to achieve your ideal result.
What Do You Desire?
If added volume is what you are hoping for, breast augmentation with implants is the ideal procedure. You can choose the implant size, amount of projection, type, and shape that appeals to you. With so many options, every breast procedure is completely customized to suit your unique body type. Dr. Jervis takes into account the width of your chest, your skin elasticity, and the amount of breast tissue you already have to help you make the most informed decision.
A breast lift and a breast augmentation will both improve the shape of the breasts and correct any asymmetry. If you would like very natural-looking breasts, you may opt for anatomically shaped implants that taper toward the top of the implant. For a rounder, fuller look, any saline or silicone implants in a larger size with a high projection will provide more fullness at the upper pole of the breasts to create added cleavage.
Correction of Sagging
Aging, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations all can cause sagging. Breast implants can improve the appearance of sagging when there is only a slight degree, but a breast lift is the best option for improving the position and projection of the breasts. If you have significant sagging or your nipples point downward and fall below your natural breast crease, a breast lift is the best procedure for you.
Youthful Appearance and Increased Size
Many women opt for both a breast augmentation and a breast lift, which are typically performed at the same time. A breast augmentation will increase the size, while a breast lift will improve sagging and provide the youthful “perkiness” many women desire.
