Whether you’re looking for a little lift, some added volume or a combination of the two, approaching breast augmentation and enhancement with your goals in mind will help determine which procedure is best for your body.
Fortunately, most women can achieve their breast enhancement goals after a thorough consultation in which they weigh their options. Here are some things to keep in mind before and during your consultation.
Simply put, breast implants are not one-size-fits all. If you’re in love with a look and see someone else sporting a certain size, that implant won’t look exactly the same on your frame. It’s important to understand how your breasts sit and how your physique and body type contributes to your overall appearance.
Sometimes all a woman needs to bring back a little perkiness is a breast lift. Other times, a woman wants to both enlarge and raise up her breasts, which can be achieved by combining a breast lift with augmentation through implants.
A breast lift – Sagging in the breasts is often more noticeable after weight loss, after pregnancy or as a woman ages. If repositioning the nipple and raising the breast is the desired goal, most often a breast lift alone will do the job.
Breast implants – Bigger breasts can be achieved through implants, and many women want a larger, more pronounced look. But bigger isn’t always better. Breast implants add weight and volume, which can make any existing breast sagging more pronounced.
Implants and a lift – Addressing sagging while adding volume with a combination of breast implants and a breast lift is a popular option. You can reposition both the nipple and the breast with the lift, while adding volume with an appropriately sized implant.
