How to Choose Between a Breast Lift and Breast Implants

Are you having difficulty deciding between a breast lift or breast implants? This comprehensive guide can help you make the most informed decision for your health and well-being.

As time goes on, natural processes such as aging, pregnancy, genetics, and weight fluctuations can cause a range of aesthetic breast concerns for some women. These issues may include:

  • Loss of volume
  • Sagging
  • Natural loss of shape
  • Loss of firmness in breasts

These changes are a result of natural forces but they can significantly affect the way a woman’s breasts feel and look. Luckily, there are a range of breast surgery procedures, from breast implants and lifts, to breast reductions that can correct such concerns and help you feel more comfortable in your appearance.

Breast Lift vs Breast Implants: Which is Right For You?

When it comes to breast surgery, every patient’s needs and concerns are unique, which is why it’s so important to book a consultation with your plastic surgeon before deciding which procedure is right for you. Your cosmetic surgeon can assess your aesthetic goals and help determine which breast surgery will best suit your needs.

Breast Lift vs Breast Implants: The type of procedure you chose will depend on the specific anatomic features of your breasts and the outcome you hope to achieve.

Signs a Breast Augmentation is Right For You

  • You feel your breasts are too small for your body
  • You feel self-conscious wearing swimsuits or low-cut tops
  • Your clothes fit well at your hips but hang loosely at the bust
  • You’ve lost volume in your breasts due to childbirth, age, or weight loss
  • One of your breasts is significantly smaller than the other

Signs a Breast Lift is Right For You

  • Your breasts have sagged or dropped as a result of pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight-loss, aging, or genetics
  • The area surrounding the nipple and areola has become stretched
  • Your breasts are normal in size but they’re lacking firmness
  • Your nipples or areolas point downwards and are positioned below the breast crease

Breast augmentation alone is appropriate when:

  • Your drooping is mild
  • Your nipples/areolas are in the centre of the breasts and don’t point downwards
  • There is visible skin below your nipples when looking straight at the breasts
  • You want larger breasts

Breast lift alone is appropriate when:

  • Your drooping is moderate to severe
  • Your nipples/areolas are at the bottom of the breasts and point downwards
  • There is no visible skin below your nipples when looking straight at the breasts
  • You’re happy with the volume of your breasts and don’t want them to be larger.

Breast Lift Combined With Implants: Breast Augmentation Mastopexy

For certain women, a simple solution for their breast concerns may exist in the form of a single, comprehensive surgery, designed to address a number of aesthetic breast issues in one procedure. A breast lift with implants, also referred to as a breast augmentation mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgery that lifts breasts to a higher position, while simultaneously improving breast shape and increasing volume.

At our Edmonton clinic, we offer this combined breast enhancement and rejuvenation option for patients seeking enhanced volume and more youthful-looking breasts. Some of the key advantages of this procedure include:

  • Removal of excess skin for firmer looking breasts
  • Enhanced volume and fullness of breasts
  • Improved projection and position of breasts
  • Improved skin smoothness
  • Correction of asymmetry that may exist in breasts
  • Tighter, elevated breasts and nipples that correct breast ptosis, where breasts sag over time
