Breast Augmentation vs. Breast Lift
With several options to choose from, women who are considering breast enhancement may wonder which procedure can best achieve their aesthetic goals. At Luxxery Boutique, we begin by addressing each individual’s primary concerns and then build a customized treatment plan designed for the ideal outcome. Our board-certified plastic surgeon in Waldorf, Dr. Ayman R. Hakki, explains two of the most common breast surgery options below:
Breast Augmentation (Breast Enlargement)
To enhance breast size and contour, a breast augmentation using silicone or saline implants can offer beautiful, natural-looking results for individuals interested in:
- Adding breast volume for greater fullness
- Attaining a more voluptuous breast size
- Refining breast shape and proportions
The two main types of breast implants available are silicone (FDA-approved for ages 22 and older) and saline (FDA-approved for ages 18 and older). Dr. Hakki can help explain the benefits of each and evaluate which implant material option may be best for your desired result.
Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy)
To improve the appearance of sagging breasts, a breast lift procedure can rejuvenate breasts that have lost their youthful projection during the natural aging process, fluctuations in weight, pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, or even genetics. A breast lift may be the preferred option if you’d like to:
- Improve signs of sagging/drooping breasts (breast ptosis)
- Remove excess, inelastic skin and tighten the remaining skin
- Reposition breasts and nipples for a “perkier” aesthetic
While both breast augmentation and breast lift procedures can beautifully enhance the appearance of the breasts, they are quite distinct in terms of the concerns they are designed to address. If you are interested in lifting your breasts as well as increasing the fullness or size of the breasts, that can often be accomplished with a combined breast lift with augmentation procedure. During an initial consultation, we will thoroughly review your breast concerns and cosmetic goals to determine the best solution.
