On average, over 100,000 women annually elect to have breast lifts performed. It's important to discuss and decide what is the best procedure to meet your expectations with Dr. Schusterman. Here is a quick look at the differences between these two common cosmetic procedures:
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery to increase breast size by placing silicone or saline breast implants under the breast tissue or the chest muscle to make the breasts fuller and rounder in appearance. Breast augmentation does not technically raise the breasts’ position on the body, though the additional volume can improve the look and shape of the breasts. Fat transfer can also be used for breast augmentation.
During a breast lift, Dr. Schusterman will remove excess skin, reshape, and tighten the breasts to correct sagging and give a more lifted and youthful appearance. Breast lifts do not add volume to the breasts, but they can help make the breasts more symmetrical and improve breast position on the body. Breast lifts are often done in conjunction with breast augmentation to give Dr. Shusterman the ability to create a procedure that provides the benefits of both breast lift and breast augmentation.
Choosing cosmetic surgery is a personal choice. The reasons for a breast lift are different for each patient. You need to have a positive and healthy outlook on how you want your breasts to look.
