Do I Need a Breast Augmentation or Lift?
If you are unhappy with your breasts, you may be considering some sort of surgical solution to achieve your goals. However, sometimes it’s not always clear which procedure will address your specific concerns. In addition to identifying the right procedure, you may also want to consider a combination of techniques for optimal improvement. Keep reading to learn more about common concerns and the procedures to fix them.
Imbalance due to size
Some women opt for a breast augmentation to add balance to their frame, whether that’s going bigger smaller to fit your body. One of the most common occurrences is adding more volume to upper body to balance out the curves of the lower body. The same goes for women with small frames who wish to reduce their breast size. To achieve balance, patients typically opt for a breast enhancement or reduction to achieve this.
Lack of Symmetry
No two breasts are the same; but for some, this difference is more dramatic. Some people find this to be troubling, making clothes fit awkwardly or cause one to feel insecure. This issue can easily be addressed by using implants for one or both breasts to achieve a more uniform size.
Just like the skin on the rest of our body, the skin of our breasts will begin to sag and show laxity over time. This eventually changes the position of the breasts from youthful and perky to lower and deflated. Luckily this can be easily fixed with a breast lift, and if you want to see volume replaced implants or a fat transfer can be added to replace lost volume.
A more functional and less cosmetic reason woman augment their breasts, is due to the fact that they are simply too heavy for one’s comfort. If a woman has large enough breasts to cause back pain, having a breast reduction can be life-changing due to the comfort it provides patients. Some patients like to add a lift onto this because the size of their natural breasts caused some sagging.
