Most women dream about having the full and perfectly rounded breasts we all see in movies and magazines. This concept of beauty and feminine body figures has been around for decades, which is why thousands of women decide to undergo plastic surgery every year to get the curvy figure of their dreams.
Though most patients are familiar with the concept of breast surgery, you might not know there is more than one way to achieve your cosmetic goals. Breasts come in different sizes and shapes, so there isn’t a one-size-fits-all formula that works for all patients.
Today, two of the most sought-after breast procedures are augmentations and lifts. Both surgeries achieve extraordinary results, but they serve different purposes. If you are considering breast surgery, understanding your options is crucial to help you make the right decision.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is the most popular plastic procedure in the U.S. This surgery is one of the safest, quickest, and most effective alternatives to improve breast symmetry, volume, and shape. During surgery, breast specialist Dr. Tim Sayed inserts saline or silicone implants to achieve the appearance you discussed during your consultation. Breast implants also come in different sizes and shapes, so Dr. Sayed will help you select the best choice for you.
Augmentation surgery is the ideal choice for healthy patients who want to address their breasts’ size or shape, but it has little effect on their position. If you are happy about your breast volume but think they look a bit droopy, you might want to consider a breast lift.
What Is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is the leading solution for sagging breasts, medically known as ptosis. Flattened, deflated breasts can result from multiple factors, including aging, weight loss, breastfeeding, and even genetics. Breast ptosis can make you look significantly older, with issues like excess fat and downward-pointing nipples. These can be impossible to hide, even when you are fully dressed.
With a breast lift, Dr. Sayed removes excess skin, improves contours, and addresses nipple position to enhance your breasts’ appearance. This treatment is an excellent alternative for healthy women who struggle with sagging breasts, especially after having children.
Can I Combine Breast Surgeries?
Absolutely. Dr. Sayed can perform a lift and augmentation concurrently to simultaneously resolve multiple concerns. Pairing surgeries is an excellent way to save time and money because it only requires one recovery period, making it ideal for your busy lifestyle.
