It’s normal to have questions about any cosmetic procedure that you’re considering. When it comes to breast augmentation, you’re likely wondering about everything from the cost to results. Below, we’ve answered some of the most common questions about this popular surgery.
What is the difference between breast augmentation and a breast lift?
Breast augmentation is done to change breast size and shape. The procedure uses implants to add or restore lost volume, increase breast projection, correct asymmetry, and accomplish similar goals. It does not significantly elevate breast position.
Meanwhile, the goal of a breast lift is to correct sagging and drooping, not to change breast size. These procedures are often performed together to improve breast shape and position. The result is larger, perkier breasts.
Can I customize my breast augmentation procedure?
Nearly every aspect of breast enhancement is customizable. You will choose from different breast augmentation options, including implant size, implant type, incision location, and more.
These decisions allow you to address your unique concerns and achieve the exact results that you desire. Every woman is different, and the individualized nature of this procedure celebrates those differences.
Will I eventually need to replace my breast implants?
Breast implants are long-lasting but not permanent. You may need to replace them at some point to maintain optimal aesthetics and safety. Deciding that you want to change your implant shape, size, or style is another reason to pursue replacement.
It is common for breast augmentation patients to undergo a secondary breast procedure, called breast implant revision, at some point. This surgery involves removing older implants and replacing them with new ones.
You can learn more about the longevity of breast implants during your consultation but know that they are widely regarded as safe medical devices. You should enjoy your augmentation results for years to come.
