However, what many people don’t realise is that breast augmentation affects the size of the boob and not necessarily the shape or how they ‘hang’.
Enter breast uplift.
A breast uplift procedure is performed by using the existing breast tissue and to naturally reposition it on the chest.
Since more people have gained knowledge about cosmetic surgery, breast uplift procedures are on the rise.
So what is the difference between the two and which one is best?
For those looking for the easy answer, unfortunately there is no one correct answer, as each patient has different goals both short term and long term.
Furthermore, each procedure has pros and cons, advantages and disadvantages and ultimately it is up to you to make an informed decision on one versus the other.
Additionally, it is also possible to combine the two procedures depending on the type of look you wish to have.
1. Breast augmentation is aimed towards patients looking for bigger boobs.
2. Breast augmentation does not correct drooping / sagging boobs.
3. Breast uplift focuses on position and not cup size.
4. Both procedures can be combined and performed at the same time to add volume and raise the breasts to a more youthful position.
In addition to the above points, there are a number of elimination questions you can ask yourself in order to make the decision a little easier about which procedure is right for you.
Here is a brief list of pointers to discuss with a specialist when considering breast surgery:
