Breast Augmentation vs. Breast Lift
For many women, the size and shape of their breasts is tied to their personal sense of femininity. Women’s breasts are also often integral to their self-confidence. Women who are dissatisfied with their breasts may consider what life would be like if they could alter their natural curves. Breast augmentation and breast lift surgery are two excellent options for attaining your aesthetic goals.
- Breast Augmentation
If you are discontent with the size of your breasts, breast augmentation may be the plastic surgery that best suits your needs. Breast augmentation can help if you would like to increase your overall cup size. During breast augmentation surgery, your plastic surgeon will insert an implant either behind the breast gland or under the pectoral muscle and breast gland. Breast implants can be filled with silicone or saline and come in many sizes and shapes to help you achieve the look you desire. Depending on your anatomy, the type of implant, and your surgeon’s expertise, the incision to insert the breast implant can be made under the natural crease of the breast, in the armpit, around the nipple, or in the belly button area.
- Breast Lift
The effects of aging, weight loss, pregnancy, breast-feeding, and gravity can take their toll on your breasts. If you are satisfied with the size of your breasts but would like a younger, perkier breast contour with improved firmness, a breast lift may be a better option for you. The vast majority of the lifts we perform are minimally invasive type lifts.
You may also choose to undergo a combination breast augmentation and lift procedure. Talk to Dr. Ronan of Blackhawk Plastic Surgery to help you determine which procedure will help you attain the best results. Schedule an appointment at Blackhawk Plastic Surgery today by calling (925) 736-5757.
