Choosing Between a Lift and an Implant in Breast Enhancement

Posted on September 5, 2014 by - Breast Enlargement, Breast Implants, Breast Lift, Breast Procedures, Uncategorized

There’s more to crow’s feet and sagging jawline when it comes to aging. There’s also the change in the shape and firmness of breasts which can further be aggravated with a combination of factors such as extreme body weight fluctuations, pregnancy and breastfeeding, as well as lifestyle factors such as smoking and frequent sun exposure.

If you’re unhappy and dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts, a breast enhancement procedure may help you achieve the improvements you want to see. During your initial consultation with Dr. Chacon, a thorough assessment and discussion of your breast enhancement goals and preferences will be done. Majority of first time visitors here at our practice are often confused between having a breast lift and breast implants to improve the appearance of their breasts.

When to Choose a Breast Lift

In general, a breast lift can be your best bet if your main concern has to do with extensive drooping or sagging breasts. The procedure is designed to lift the breasts to a perkier position, tighten the surrounding skin, and restore the position of the areola and nipples for a more naturally youthful look.

When to Choose Breast Augmentation with Implants

On the other hand, breast enhancement via saline or silicone implants may be your top choice if you wish to have significant improvements in the shape, volume, and overall profile of your breasts. Here at our practice, we offer various types and sizes of implants. In addition, you also need to decide on implant placement and incision types if you wish to have breast enhancement via implants.

Why Not Have Both?

If you’ve been wondering if it’s possible to address sagging issues and improve breast size at the same time, you can opt to have a breast implants in conjunction with a breast lift.

The best way to determine which breast enhancement procedure will suit you best is to initially determine what it is exactly that you want to see following the procedure. You should discuss with your plastic surgeon if whether you would like to see significant improvements in the size and shape of your breasts or you’re perfectly fine with your breast volume but just want them to appear perkier.
