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.
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.
