When it comes to breast enhancement, there is more than one choice. Breast lift, breast augmentation, or a combination of the two help women with breast issues in different ways. To help clarify your options, we created this article to give you a place to start your research. To get the full picture, schedule a consultation at North Atlanta Plastic Surgery in Alpharetta.
What a Breast Lift Can Do and What It Can’t
The goal of a breast lift is to correct breast elevation from a sagging, flat breast appearance to breasts that have that sensual, upward curve. Mastopexy will transpose breast tissue and the nipples if necessary, for a perky position on the chest wall. But it won’t significantly increase the fullness, size, or width of your breasts. You can easily determine if you need a breast lift if your nipples fall below your natural breast crease.
What Breast Implants Can and Can’t Do
Breast augmentation is a procedure for women who want to increase breast volume, firmness, and size. Dr. Alderman uses saline or silicone implants to regain or attain youthful breasts. If your breast skin is pliable and your nipples fall above your natural breast crease, breast augmentation is suitable as a stand-alone procedure.
The Best of Both Worlds
For women who want to perk up their breasts and increase size and firmness, a breast lift with implants is probably the optimal choice. The technique will move the breasts higher on the chest wall, and Dr. Alderman will insert implants to create fullness, increase size, and add balance at their new location. The benefit is a perky, full bustline associated with youth and sensuality.
