As a woman grows, her body goes through many changes that can affect the appearance of the breasts. From weight gain and loss to pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts can gain or lose volume and lose their youthful perkiness as gravity takes its toll. For many women, this means considering breast augmentation, the most popular cosmetic surgery in the United States. But is breast augmentation enough to achieve your desired appearance? For many battling changes in shape and sagging, adding a breast lift with breast augmentation gives you the full breast makeover you are looking for without needing multiple surgeries.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
A breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses breast implants to increase the size of the breast. Women choose this procedure to address lost volume, increase smaller breast size, and improve breast size asymmetry.
A breast augmentation addresses breast volume while a breast lift addresses the effects of gravity and aging, such as sagging and changes to shape.
What Is a Breast Lift?
