Choosing Between Breast Lift Surgery and Breast Implants Alone

Breast surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures that women have done all over the world. Some women undergo breast augmentation because they're unhappy with the size of their breasts. Other women become unhappy with the look and feel of their breasts after having children, losing weight, or aging. The two main types of surgeries are breast lifts or breast augmentation. With an augmentation, silicone or saline implants are used to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. With a breast uplift, the nipple is repositioned and a silicone breast implant is used to help enhance shape. The key to receiving the results you want is finding a reputable surgeon who specializes in augmentations or breast uplift in Beverly Hills.

Choosing Breast Augmentation

Breast implants are placed usually beneath the pectoral muscle in the chest. The implant increases both the shape and size of the breast. To keep your breasts looking natural, it's recommended to choose an implant size that's not too large in comparison to your natural size. Many women choose to go with a C cup because it provides good proportioning and doesn't make the chest appear unnatural, even on petite women. As with any artificial enhancement of the body, you will need to maintain your breast implants, which can include replacement over the years.

Breast Uplift Surgery

Some women mistakenly believe that if you want your breasts to look better you have to receive implants. However, this isn't entirely true. While most surgeons will perform a breast uplift surgery using an implant, it's a small or modest sized implant. You can enhance the look of your breasts without receiving large breast implants by opting for a breast uplift. Beverly Hills surgeons who perform uplifts usually reposition the nipple and lift the breast to help improve the appearance of your breasts.

Women who have nursed children, had multiple pregnancies, or are simply experiencing the signs of aging can benefit from a breast uplift. Beverly Hills patients who undergo this procedure often feel an increased sense of self-esteem about their appearance. An uplift also helps your clothing and bathing suits to fit better and increases the number of styles that look good on you. No matter which surgery you opt for, breast augmentation and implants are relatively safe procedures that improve appearance and confidence.
