Breast Lift vs Breast Lift with Implants: What’s the Difference?

Breast procedures are some the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed today. However, despite this popularity, there are still many misconceptions when it comes to the different procedures. Two of the most popular procedures that are often misunderstood are the breast lift and breast lift with implants. Read on to learn more about these different procedures and what they can do for you.

Breast Lift

A breast lift is a plastic surgery procedure aimed at lifting drooping breasts into a more youthful position. Many factors can cause the breasts to lose volume, including pregnancy, breastfeeding, fluctuations in weight, aging, gravity, or heredity. There are several breast lift techniques offered ranging from the donut lift to the anchor lift. The type of lift needed depends on factors such as the degree of sag, nipple position, skin quality and desired goal.

While this procedure can help lift the breasts, it cannot significantly change the size of the breasts or round out the upper part of the breast. That is where breast lift with implants comes in.

Breast Lift with Implants

Breast lift with implants, or breast lift with breast augmentation lift will not only lift the breasts into a more youthful position but will also improve the shape, volume, and upper fullness. Adding an implant to a breast lift will also provide longer lasting results compared to a breast lift alone. This is because the implant helps counter the ongoing effects of gravity. The existing breast tissue that is lifted during a breast lift alone will succumb to the natural forces and eventually begin to sag again.

How Do I Know Which Procedure Is Right for Me?

The best way to determine which procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cruise. During this consultation, he will discuss your medical history and your aesthetic goals as well as perform a physical exam to determine whether breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast lift with implants is right for you.
