If you are considering breast surgery, you may wonder whether to choose an implant or a lift. Both procedures have their own benefits and drawbacks, and the decision ultimately depends on your individual needs and goals.
Here are some things to keep in mind when making your decision:
- Implants are the best option if you want to increase your cup size.
- If you are happy with your cup size but want to improve the shape and appearance of your breasts, then a lift is the best option.
- To achieve the desired results, you may need an implant and a lift if you have lost a significant amount of weight or have been pregnant.
- If you are still undecided, schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options and find out what is best for you.
What’s the Difference Between a Lift and an Implant?
There are two main types of breast augmentation surgery: lifts and implants. Lifts involve lifting the breasts up to a higher position on the chest, while implants involve placing implants under the breast tissue to add volume. Both surgeries can achieve nice results, but they are two different procedures.
So, which one is right for you? That depends on your individual situation and goals. Implants are the best option if you want to add volume to your breasts. A lift is the best option if you want to lift your breasts up to a higher position. Sometimes, a combination of both procedures is the best option. Ultimately, the decision is up to you and your surgeon.
