The breast lift is one of the most well-known and popular plastic surgery procedures nowadays. That being said, there are still many misconceptions around the procedure and what it can do for our patients. Let’s take a deeper dive into the breast lift, so you know exactly what you can expect during and after your surgery.
What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that involves enhancing the shape and position of the breasts on the chest without adding or removing any volume. This means that a breast lift can rejuvenate the appearance of your chest without affecting your overall bra size or the size of your breasts. Patients who receive a breast lift typically wish to have breasts that better suit their natural frame without drastically changing their overall appearance.
What are the Benefits of a Breast Lift?
There are many benefits to receiving a breast lift with Dr. Emily Pollard, including:
- Enhances the overall shape of the breast
- Lifts the breasts on the chest for a more youthful appearance
- Does not add volume to the breasts or use breast implants
- Does not take away from the volume of the breasts or make them smaller
What’s the Difference Between a Breast Lift and Breast Reduction?
Patients who are looking to get a breast lift are typically worried that they will end up losing some volume in their breasts. In reality, patients who wish to remove volume from their breasts will need a breast reduction. Unlike a breast lift, a breast reduction removes excess fat and breast tissue from the breasts to reduce their overall size while enhancing their shape and position on the chest. A breast lift, however, does not remove this fat or tissue resulting in the same size breasts that have a more youthful shape and position.
Can I Get a Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation at the Same Time?
Yes, you can absolutely get a breast lift and breast augmentation at the same time. For patients who are concerned about maintaining their original volume, we sometimes encourage small breast implants to be introduced into the chest during surgery. This will ensure that the patient has the extra, full volume they desire when rejuvenating the appearance of their chest. If you feel this may be the right option for you, we encourage you to ask Dr. Emily Pollard during your private consultation.
