For women who want to get more cleavage one of the the most popular options is a breast augmentation. This procedure adds volume to the breasts using a silicone or saline implant placed behind the breast. However, a breast augmentation isn’t always the best way for a woman to increase her cleavage. For women whose breasts have begun to sag with age or pregnancies, a breast augmentation alone may actually make the breasts look worse. In these cases, we can help our patients achieve their goals with a different procedure called a breast lift. Women that not only need more volume but also a lift in their breasts should call Dr. Max today at (817) 529-9199. In the meantime, make sure you take a moment to look through our gallery of Before-and-After pictures to see the kind of incredible, life-changing results our patients get.
Breast Augmentation versus Breast Lift
Women are usually very familiar with the “boob job.” Yet fewer know what a breast lift is and the fantastic results that patients can get. Now, not everyone is a candidate for a breast lift. Here are signs that could indicate you would be better served with a breast lift.
- Nipple placement – One of the first things Dr. Max looks for when evaluating a patient for a breast lift is where the nipple is located. If the nipple has drifted so low that it is near or below the fold of the breast, this is a good indication you need a breast lift. In this case, putting an implant behind the breast without lifting it first would not produce desirable results.
- Skin elasticity – Another symptom Dr. Max will look at is how much elasticity your breasts have. If the skin is flat, loose, and lying against the breasts, this is another sign that you might benefit more from a breast lift. Women will be able to lift the breast and make it more firm and youthful going this route.
Benefits of a Breast Lift
Moms that are finished with breastfeeding and pregnancies are some of the most common patients to get a breast lift. Women who have lost a great deal of weight or whose breasts have started to droop from age can get breathtaking results with a breast lift.
Here’s how the procedure works. During the surgery, Dr. Max will remove the excess, hanging skin and also reposition the nipple further up on the breast. The result are breasts that sit higher on the chest, are firmer and more youthful, and that have a beautiful, natural shape.
