Differences Between a Breast Lift vs. Breast Augmentation 

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that’s designed to correct sagging as a result of volume loss, particularly those caused by breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and/or getting older. Breast lift surgery achieves this goal by readjusting the positioning of the nipple to a more youthful place, while also removing any excess skin that exacerbates sagging.

Breast augmentation surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure designed to add volume to the chest, as well as correct any symmetry issues. Breast augmentation achieves this look via implants, which can be personalized to fit the patient’s desired results.

The main differences between the two procedures comes down to what results they’re aiming to accomplish. For example, breast lift surgery aims to address sagging by creating a “lifted” appearance, while breast augmentation surgery seeks to add volume and enhance the bustline.

How Do I Know Which One is Right for Me?

If you’re unsure which surgery is the best bet for you, ask yourself what makes you feel unhappy or uncomfortable about your breasts. The answer can help point you in the right direction!

On the one hand, if you’re unhappy with sagging or you feel self-conscious that your nipples point in a downward direction, you may be a good candidate for breast lift surgery. If, on the other hand, you’re dissatisfied with the size of your breasts, breast augmentation surgery could be a good option for you.

No matter which surgery you choose, the best candidates are healthy individuals who have realistic expectations for their surgical results.
