Breast Augmentation vs. Breast Lift

Breast augmentation is used to address size, shape, and symmetry issues. With this type of breast surgery, Dr. Chatson uses implants to produce the desired look.

Breast lift is used to address ptosis (sagging). Lift can restore a perky and youthful look, but it will not address size. In fact, some studies have found lift may slightly reduce breast volume.

Because the same factors that can allow breasts to lose symmetry and volume may also lead to ptosis, combining breast lift with augmentation is a popular choice among many of our patients. The best way to learn if this combination is right for your needs is though a one-on-one consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon.
