Numerous variables affect the form and size of the breasts, including heredity, weight gain or loss, pregnancy, and age. Occasionally, the size, form, and proportions may not match your expectations. Cosmetic surgery offers the necessary boost and lift to obtain the desired bust size. Mastopexy and augmentation mammoplasty are two fairly popular breast procedures: expansion versus lift. If you can benefit from a combination of these operations, you may not have to pick between the two.
This traditional breast surgery enlarges the breasts. Additionally, breast implants enhance the overall contour and projection of the breasts. During surgery, breast implants are inserted into a pocket within the breast tissue to provide permanent enlargement and augmentation.
Breast augmentation alone may be the best option for you if you wish to:
- Upper-body and lower-body proportions
- Protrusion of the breasts from the chest
Dr. High or Lyle will assist you in selecting the kind, size, shape, and profile of breast implants. These implant characteristics contribute to the final appearance of the breasts.
This treatment, also known as mastopexy, raises drooping breasts. Frequently, a woman interested in a breast lift desires to correct sagging caused by:
- Weight reduction
A breast lift cannot expand your breasts on its own. It empowers them. In fact, following a mastopexy, you may be able to use a smaller bra cup since superfluous, sagging skin is removed. A breast lift alone is a fantastic alternative for ladies who merely wish to elevate their drooping breasts.
A Combined Method
Combining the lift and augmentation procedures is typical. In addition to elevating sagging breasts, this method involves the placement of breast implants. Dr. Lyle or High will assist you in determining if it is suitable for you.
