Do I Need a Breast Augmentation or a Breast Lift?

Sep 16, 2011

Frankly, this is a question that can only be answered in a consultation with Dr. Antonio J. Gayoso, when he can listen to your cosmetic goals and evaluate your breast tissue to determine which procedure is right for you.

However, if you are looking for a quick-and-dirty guide to the procedures, here are some basic pointers.

A breast augmentation can correct:

  • Breasts that are too small
  • Breasts that have lost volume due to age or pregnancy
  • Breast asymmetry
  • Small amounts of breast sagging due to lost volume

On the other hand, a breast lift can correct:

  • Sagging breasts
  • Breasts that no longer have a youthful shape or firmness

For some women, it’s not a question of one or the other—both are necessary to give the desired result. In particular, if your breasts have significant sagging but a breast lift using only your own tissue would actually result in an unacceptable breast reduction. In this case, breast implants can be used to help you achieve the appearance you desire.
