If you are not happy with your breast fullness, size, or shape, it can be difficult for you to face life with confidence. The good news is that this is an issue that can be solved through cosmetic surgery. 

Some examples of procedures that can help improve the appearance of your breasts include breast lift surgery and breast augmentation. 

However, it is worth noting that the best solution for you depends on the problem you want to solve and what you want to achieve. As such, before deciding which procedure you should seek, you need to understand what your issue is and what each of these cosmetic surgical procedures entails.

What Does Breast Lift Surgery Solve?

Breast lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that seeks to improve the appearance of drooping breasts or downward-pointing nipples. These issues can occur due to breastfeeding, aging, or even a significant weight loss. 

During the procedure, excess skin will be removed, and breast tissue will be reshaped to raise the breasts, which sometimes makes them look fuller (without adding volume). 

It is worth noting that that procedure is not meant to change the size of the breast significantly, and if you have an issue with the size of your breasts, you might need more than a breast lift.

What Does Breast Implant Surgery/ Breast Augmentation Solve?

Breast implant surgery, also known as breast augmentation, is a plastic surgery procedure performed to enhance the size, volume, and shape of a woman’s breasts. The procedure involves making an incision under the breasts or around the areola and inserting implants to make them look bigger, fuller, perkier, and more attractive.

Can I Have Both Breast Lift and Breast Implants?

Breast implants and breast lift surgical procedures are meant to solve different problems. 

But what happens if you want to improve both the size and the contour of your breasts? 

In such a situation, it is safe for you to opt for both. Your plastic surgeon can usually perform the breast lift and breast augmentation in a single session to help you achieve optimum results.
