Inland Empire Mastopexy: Breast Lift vs. Breast Augmentation
- Posted on: Jun 21 2013
A variety of factors — genetics, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight loss, could significantly alter the firmness and shape of your breasts. If you are not fully satisfied with the appearance of your breasts, you could opt for breast-enhancement surgery. Yet, you might wonder which is best for you — should you go for an Inland Empire breast lift or choose to have implants with breast augmentation? We will help you decide below.
What Sets Them Apart
By and large, a breast lift procedure, also known as mastopexy, is suited for women desiring to elevate their drooping breasts without changing the current size and shape of their breasts. Yet, if you are one of those women who wants fuller and firmer breasts, a breast augmentation would be more suitable. That being said, you can opt to have these two breast enhancement surgeries combined and Dr. Tehrani will give you his recommendation during your consultation with him.
Ideal Candidates for a Breast Lift
A breast lift is suitable for you if you have:
pendulous or sagging breasts yet of satisfactory size
less perky breasts (lacking substance)
nipples which tend to point downwards
Ideal Candidates for Breast Augmentation
weight fluctuation has caused your breasts to change in size and shape
pregnancy and childbirth has caused your breasts to lose its firmness
On Incisions and Surgical Techniques
Both breast lift and breast augmentation procedures have their own set of surgical techniques — from the location of incisions to where and how the breast implants will be placed in breast augmentation. Dr. Tehrani will thoroughly assess your goals and preferences as well as your existing body frame.
Initial Consultation with Dr. Tehrani
Furthermore, the best way for you to decide which of the two breast enhancement surgeries will suit you best is through your initial consultation with Dr. Tehrani. Dr Ali Tehrani takes pride in personally performing all surgical procedures. He does not allow “residents”, “fellows”, or other surgeons to perform your surgery. In the rare instance that a “co-surgeon” will be appropriate, this will be discussed with you during your pre-operative appointment.
