Augmentation or Lift: Which Is Right for You?

Augmentation or Lift: Which Is Right for You?

Many women are unhappy with their breasts. Breasts can change dramatically over time due to weight changes, pregnancy, or simply age. Getting the figure that you want doesn’t necessarily mean that you need breast augmentation. In some cases, a breast lift might be more appropriate. Augmentation or lift here’s what you need to know about which one is best for your particular situation.

Sagging Breasts

As we age, our body produces less collagen and elastin. These natural compounds are required for the breasts to remain perky, tight, and firm. Therefore, it is natural that the breasts begin to sag as you get older. Breasts can also sag considerably if you lose a lot of weight or if you go through pregnancy and childbirth.

The solution for sagging breasts is a breast lift. A breast lift removes excess skin and tissue, raises the breasts to make them perky, firms and tightens the skin, and moves the nipple to a more central position. Often, a breast augmentation is not necessary when the primary problem is sagging breasts.

Loss of Volume

For loss of volume, breast augmentation is the clear choice. Often, when women bear and breastfeed multiple children, their breasts gain a deflated look. The volume loss combined with the sagging of the breasts can make them appear misshapen and asymmetrical. A breast augmentation combined with a breast lift will help correct this problem and give you the breasts you had before your body changed.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
