Do You Need a Breast Lift, Breast Implants or Both?

By Dr. Marshall T. Partington on July 28, 2020 in Breast Implants, Breast Lift

As a woman, your breasts are important to you. They are one of your most important features. They make you feel attractive and feminine. They can also enhance your figure. If you are not happy with your bust, you don’t have to accept it. You can have confidence in your body like you have never had before. The first step is to figure out which procedure is right for you.

Do You Need a Breast Lift?

You may want to consider a breast lift if gravity has taken a toll on your breasts, dragging them down. You’re not alone if you are struggling with this problem. Your bust may sag because of:

  • Loss of elasticity in your skin caused by hormonal changes
  • Weight loss or weight gain
  • Changes brought on due to pregnancy or nursing

If your breasts have lost their perkiness, a breast lift can reshape them and raise them to a more youthful position.

Do You Need Breast Implants?

Breast implant surgery, otherwise known as breast augmentation, is recommended if you want to change the size of your breasts. Reasons for wanting breast implants may include:

  • Your breasts have always been smaller than you would like
  • Your breasts have become smaller due to weight loss
  • Your breasts have lost their shape after pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Your breasts do not have the same shape or size

Breast augmentation can do more than enlarge your breasts. It can also improve the shape of your bust. You can choose from various types of implants to tailor your surgery to meet your needs.

When is a Combination Approach Best?

In some cases, combining breast augmentation with a lift will give you the best results. If your breasts have drooped over time and decreased in size, you can have both procedures at once. You can have implants inserted in your breasts to give yourself a boost in size. At the same time, you can also have your breasts raised to a higher position. The main thing you need to remember is the timing. Any type of breast surgery is best when you are able to maintain a weight that makes you happy. Be aware that future pregnancies could change the appearance of your bust.
