Difference Between Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation

Procedures such as breast lifts and breast augmentations are completely different from each other. The simplest way to distinguish them is to identify their individual purpose. A breast augmentation is meant to increase the size of the breasts, whereas a breast lift is to raise the elevation of the breasts and counter sagging.

Let’s learn a little more about what goes into both of these procedures and how they differentiate.

Ideal candidates for breast lifts are patients who are not seeking more volume in their breasts, but rather to counter sagging, whether it be due to age or/and after giving birth. The purpose is to lift and not increase volume. Multiple techniques are used to remove breast skin in different scar patterns to lift the nipple and reshape the breast from there.

An ideal candidate for a breast augmentation procedure is one whose breast shape is satisfactory to them, who does not have any droop, and who prefers their chest size to be fuller and rounder shape. This procedure is done by using breast implants or autologous fat.
