Whether you are looking to get breast implants or a breast lift, we will give you stunning, natural-looking results. Read on to learn about the differences between a breast augmentation and a breast lift.  We can assist you in making the best choice for your lifestyle and aesthetic preferences.

What Is a Breast Lift?

With age, your body’s collagen production will naturally decline, which weakens your skin’s elasticity. Over time, the effects of gravity, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and breastfeeding will cause your breasts to sag and droop, with downward-pointing nipples. If you are experiencing volume loss that makes your breasts look deflated, it can detract from your self-esteem. Eventually, these issues become hard to hide, even when you are fully dressed.

During a breast lift surgery, Dr. Brown will remove extra skin, reposition your breasts to sit higher on the chest wall, and may also relocate your nipples and areolas in proportion to your newly reshaped breasts.

The most significant difference between a breast lift and breast augmentation is that a breast lift corrects position, but does not enhance breast size. The ideal breast lift candidate is a woman who is happy with her current breast size, can commit to maintaining a healthy body weight, and is not planning any future pregnancies.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

With breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Brown uses silicone gel implants, saline implants or fat transfer to enhance your breasts’ size and shape. Breast augmentation procedures can achieve a fuller breast appearance to increase overall symmetry and volume.

Can You Get Both Procedures?

Many women who are dissatisfied with the positioning and size of your breasts choose to combine a breast lift and breast augmentation. Breast augmentation can increase the size and shape of your breasts while a breast lift can help restore a perkier, more youthful breast appearance.
