Breast Lift vs. Breast Augmentation: Deciding Which is Right for You

Both a breast lift and breast augmentation are designed to make you happier with the appearance of your breasts. How each of

Breast sculpting through surgery is highly popular among American women — in fact, breast augmentation ranked at the top of the list of cosmetic surgical procedures in 2018, and the breast lift came in at No. 3. But what’s the difference between the two, and which one is right for you?

At Las Vegas Body Sculpting and Aesthetic, Dr. Mustafa Ahmed specializes in a wide range of cosmetic procedures that are designed to bring out the best in your natural assets. And when it comes to your breasts, we offer several different approaches, including a breast augmentation and a breast lift

Here’s a look at the difference between a breast augmentation and a breast lift to help you decide which is right for you.

Breast augmentation for size

A breast augmentation, as the name implies, is designed to augment the size of your breasts. To do this, we turn to breast implants, which we place inside your breasts to give them more volume. We offer several different types of implants, including saline and silicone, which are designed to look and feel as much like natural breasts as possible, making no one the wiser.

There are many reasons why women opt for a breast augmentation, including:

No matter the reason, we likely have a solution to suit your needs. 

Breast lift for position

A breast lift is a technique we use to reposition and reshape your breasts, without necessarily changing their size. During a breast lift procedure, Dr. Ahmed repositions your breasts by tightening your tissues and removing the excess. During a breast lift, he may also resize and reposition your areola and nipple to match the new position and shape of your breasts.

Women turn to a breast lift for many reasons, with simple age and gravity at the head of the pack. Over time, the tissues that hold your breasts in place may weaken, allowing your breasts to succumb to the forces of gravity, leaving them to sag and droop. 

Having children can also do a number on your breasts, leaving them deflated and sagging once you’re done with breastfeeding. 

Rounding out the list of usual suspects, if your weight has fluctuated, your breasts may have been stretched beyond their ability to bounce back, leaving you with sagging, hollowed “shells.”

The choice is yours

If you’re unhappy with your breasts, for whatever reason, the first order of business is to figure out what’s making you unhappy. Are your breasts simply too small for your taste, or has time caught up with you, sending your breasts on a nosedive south?

The best way to figure out what’s best for your unique situation is to come in and see us so that we can review the current state of your breasts and discuss your goals. Armed with this information, we can guide you toward the best procedure to achieve your desired body shape. 

To get started, simply contact us by phone or request a consultation using our easy online scheduling tool. You can also send Dr. Ahmed and the team a message here on our website.
