Are a Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation the Same?

One of the most common questions breast enhancement patients ask is whether a breast augmentation can create a more lifted appearance. The question reflects an understandable desire to avoid more noticeable breast lift incisions if they can achieve the same goals with breast augmentation. At our Miami plastic surgery practice, our surgeons provide honest answers about the results you can expect from the two procedures.

Breast augmentation increases volume for patients whose breast tissue and skin can accommodate breast implants without sagging. If a patient’s breasts already show moderate to significant sagging, the implants will actually make the sagging worse. Breast lift surgery reshapes and elevates the breasts but won’t increase their size.

For many women, the ideal solution is combining a breast lift with breast implants to create larger breasts that look more youthful. Often, patients who have had children choose this option. The results created by our surgeons are beautiful, and the surgery can be combined with body contouring procedures as part of a Mommy Makeover.
