Should I Get a Breast Lift With My Breast Augmentation?

Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift are very different surgeries that are performed to address and correct specific concerns of the breast. Before you decide to have both surgeries performed at the same time, let’s talk about them first to give you a better idea of what each procedure is, and what they are designed to do.

Breast Augmentation is performed to increase the size of your breasts

  • More volume and fullness can be added to your breasts (with implants), or you can get an all Natural Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation (without implants).
  • Breast Augmentation results in larger breasts with better shape and a beautiful profile.
  • If you are interested in increasing the size of your breasts, Breast Augmentation is an excellent choice for you.

Breast Lift is performed to raise, reshape and rebuild sagging breasts

  • Breast Lift surgery is designed to create perky breasts. This procedure can also correct the positioning, shape, and size of your nipples-areola complex for a more youthful appearance.
  • If your breasts are sagging due to weight loss, breast feeding, or the natural aging process and you are unhappy with the height and position of your breasts and nipple-areola complex, a Breast Lift is a great option for you.

It all comes down to your desired aesthetic results.

It’s important to understand that Breast Augmentation alone will not improve the height or position of your breasts if they are sagging. Breast Augmentation on its own does not address your nipple-areola complex either.

If you are already happy with the height of your breasts (they are not sagging) and you have no desire to improve the position or appearance of your nipple-areola complex, then Breast Augmentation alone is a great procedure to improve the size, shape, and projection of your breasts.

If you have sagging breasts that are hanging lower than you want them to, and you are unhappy with the position, shape, and appearance of your nipple-areola complex, Breast Augmentation with a Breast Lift is your best option.

Can a Breast Lift Without Augmentation Make My Breasts Look Bigger?

A Breast Lift on its own (without Breast Augmentation) will not make your breasts bigger. They will look perkier, but Breast Lift surgery is not performed to make breasts bigger.

Think of a Breast Lift as a way of getting rid of all the loose, hanging, excess skin that is making your breasts sag lower than you want them to. Once all of that excess skin is removed you can achieve more youthful looking, perky breasts.

If you want larger and perky breasts with improved nipple-areola positioning, that’s where Breast Augmentation with a Breast Lift comes in to play.

Is Breast Augmentation & Breast Lift Often Performed at the Same Time?

Yes, Breast Augmentation with Breast Lift is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed at Dr. Avi Islur’s practice.

Combining these two procedures in one operation offers an overall makeover for your breasts. Breast Augmentation combined with Breast Lift addresses the size, shape, volume, symmetry, fullness, height, projection, and position of your nipple-areola complex. This powerful combination surgery results in larger, beautiful, youthful looking, perky breasts.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Avi Islur you will discuss your aesthetic goals in detail. Dr. Avi Islur will assess your existing measurements and your unique surgical requirements to determine which type of breast surgery is the best fit to achieve your desired aesthetic results.
