Breast Augmentation - Implants vs. Lifts

Last updated 1 year ago

All women are different, so deciding how to improve the shape and size of your breasts is a very personal process. However, there are a few easy questions you can ask yourself to get an idea of which type of breast surgery may be best suited to you.

Are Sagging and Drooping Breasts Your Main Problem?

Look at the size and shape of your breasts and see if you think that the main problem is that they have started to sag and droop. If this is the case, you may be best suited to a breast lift, which doesn’t increase the size of your breasts, but aims to reposition what you have, leaving them looking firmer and perkier.

Are You Unhappy With The Size of Your Breasts?

If you’d like your breasts to be bigger overall, then implants are likely to be the best course of action. Implants are designed to increase cup size and leave your breasts looking bigger and fuller.

Are Your Nipples in Unusual Positions?

When you are self-conscious about nipples that are positioned on the lower part of the breast and pointing downwards, a breast lift can be the answer. This is a sign of ageing, and a lift can help return them to a more central position.

Are Both Size And Sagginess Problems?

Breasts that have begun to sag but that you also think are too small could be good candidates for both a breast lift and implants, as these procedures can be performed together, leaving the breasts looking, larger, fuller and firmer.
