Breast Augmentation vs. Breast Lift
Breast Augmentation or Mastopexy - Which is right for me?
Please click on the picture to begin the video.
Many women think they need a breast lift, or breast augmentation, to achieve their desired appearance. For some patients, it is perfectly obvious which operation will achieve the result they desire – but for others the situation is not so clear. This page provides a little more information on these two surgeries and discusses when they can be combined for a more complete makeover.
When considering breast enhancement surgery, you need to determine if your breasts have any droop (which can result from weight fluctuations, breast feeding, or even just genetics), and how "perky" you want to be after surgery. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I thought the video above would help patients understand what plastic surgeons consider breast droop (or "ptosis") and the effect it has on the surgical result and/or the operative plan.
This video contains before and after pictures of patients who came to my office requesting breast augmentation in Dallas. Most patients were good candidates for breast enhancement with implants, but a few were not. For the patients who were not suited for breast augmentation, we decided to perform some form of breast lift procedure instead. I hope that after viewing the video, you will have a better understanding of your breasts, and the surgical options available to you for breast enhancement.
