For many people, “plastic surgery” is synonymous with “breast augmentation.” But breast surgeries are not one-size-fits-all procedures. This blog discusses what a breast lift is, its benefits, how versatile it can be, how breast reduction surgery works, and how to combine a breast lift with breast augmentation or breast revision.

A breast augmentation is what many people think of when they hear the phrase “boob job” or when they think of plastic surgery for breasts. However, there are many types of breast surgeries, and each one has a specific purpose and utilizes particular techniques to improve the appearance of the breasts in some way. Whether you want to increase or decrease the size of your breasts, we all suffer from the signs of aging, namely—sagging breasts. This is where breast lift surgery comes into play and why it can be one of the most diverse and beneficial breast procedures for many women.

What Is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that removes the excess skin and tissue causing the breasts to sag. By removing the excess skin and tissue, the breasts can be elevated and repositioned on the chest to a perkier, more youthful position. Breast lift surgery works fantastic as a standalone procedure or as an addition to other breast surgeries.

Breast Lift Results

After having a breast lift, you can expect your breasts to rest higher on your chest and be firmer. Getting a breast lift as a standalone procedure is an excellent option for people who are satisfied with the natural size of their breasts but desire a more elevated look.

A breast lift can be especially beneficial for women who have given birth and desire their pre-pregnancy breasts, for women who have lost a significant amount of weight, and for those who are dealing with their breast tissue weakening over time as they age.

Combining a Breast Lift With Breast Augmentation

For women who desire larger and perkier breasts, pairing a breast lift with a breast augmentation can be the perfect procedure combination. A breast augmentation enhances the size of the breasts by inserting silicone or saline implants into the breast pocket. If you get a breast augmentation and breast lift done at the same time, the augmentation will be done first, creating incisions and placing the implants, and then the breasts will be lifted by tightening the skin and tissues around the breasts.

Combining a breast lift with your breast augmentation adds volume to the breasts and adjusts the position of where the breasts rest on your chest. It can correct asymmetrical breasts, improve the shape of the breasts, and lift the projection of sagging breasts.

Breast Reduction Surgery

If your naturally large breasts are weighing you down with pain and preventing you from engaging in your favorite activities, then a breast reduction could be the answer to your problems. During breast reduction surgery, your surgeon creates incisions so they can remove the excess breast tissue, skin, and fat that is contributing to the large size of your breasts. The breast reduction procedure naturally has a breast lift built into it, as after removing the excess breast contents, the leftover breast tissue is lifted and shaped to enhance the appearance and position of your newly sized breasts.

Combining a Breast Lift With Breast Implant Revision

It is very common to combine a breast lift with your breast implant revision surgery. Secondary breast augmentation, also known as breast implant revision, is a procedure for correcting complications from breast augmentation, changing implants, or removing them altogether. Whether you’re changing your implants out for a smaller or larger size or just taking them out without replacing them, a breast lift can be a great addition to enhance your breasts and leave you with a perkier, youthful appearance.
