Do I Need a Breast Augmentation or Lift?
Many women come to Sukkar Aesthetic Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa wishing to alter their breasts but aren’t sure which procedure is right for them. To determine the right solution for your needs, Dr. Sam Sukkar will conduct a physical examination while also listening to what you hope to achieve through surgery. Based on this information, he can establish whether you need a breast augmentation and/or a lift.
In general, breast augmentation is ideal for those who wish to enhance the size and shape of their breasts. The procedure can restore volume if the breasts begin to look deflated, such as after breastfeeding, or if the patient simply wants to increase their breast size. Additionally, the use of breast implants can help improve symmetry.
A breast lift, on the other hand, is designed to raise the tissue to a more youthful position on the chest wall, which can include lifting the areola if it has descended below the level of the breast crease. The breast lift procedure provides beautiful results for those with moderate to severe drooping of the breasts.
Should a patient have more severe drooping and also desires an increase in their breast size, a breast augmentation combined with a lift may be the best option. To learn which option(s) can help you reach your aesthetic goals, please contact our office to schedule your consultation.
