Women can be confused by the difference between a breast lift and breast augmentation. For instance, a breast lift does not benefit all types of breasts. There are certain criteria or conditions that the patient must possess in order to be a good candidate for the procedure.
Breast…lift or augmentation?
Many women think a breast lift and breast augmentation surgery are similar procedures. While they are closely related, and can even be done simultaneously, both surgeries have major differences and do not provide the same results. A breast lift is done to provide a “lifted” appearance to sagging breasts, while breast augmentation uses breast implants to increase the size and fullness of the breasts. There are several conditions where your surgeon will recommend a breast lift procedure to you.
The ideal breast lift candidate
During your initial consultation with Dr. Tehrani, your breasts and your specific goals will be assessed to identify if you are a good candidate for a breast lift. Generally, the ideal candidate for a breast lift is a woman who is uncomfortable with the sagging of her breasts. Drooping breasts can be caused by significant weight fluctuations, previous pregnancies and breastfeeding, and as an unfortunate side effect of aging.
Many factors can lead to a decrease in breast volume, as well, including the loss of the skin’s elasticity, which happens as a person ages. For patients who want to extend the youthfulness of their breasts, a breast lift can be done to slow the march of time.
