How to Decide if You Need a Breast Lift or a Breast Augmentation 

For various reasons, whether it’s pregnancy or aging, breasts can lose their youthful perkiness and even start to sag on the chest. These changes don’t only occur to women with larger breasts; small-chested women can also experience a downward droop.

Luckily, there are various options available to help correct any concerns you may have, including a breast augmentation, mastopexy, or both. Various factors will come into play when deciding which solution is best suited to your needs.

Here are some things to consider when deciding if you require a breast augmentation, mastopexy, or both: 


Breast volume refers to how full your breasts appear. Weight loss, aging, or pregnancy can cause breasts to lose volume and in such a situation, a breast implant can be used to restore volume to the chest, while improving the shape of your breasts. In addition, a breast lift may also be needed to address any lax tissue.

Breast Size 

If you have always wanted larger breasts, or you want to correct any breast asymmetry, then a breast augmentation could be right for you. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon can discuss your implant options and help you try on implant sizes, to give you a better idea of how you will look after the procedure. 


Nipple Position 

If you notice that your nipples point downwards or sit below your breast crease, you could be a good candidate for a breast lift. Sagging tissue or volume loss could cause the nipple/areola to change position, stretch, or become larger. In addition to raising breast tissue, a breast lift will also reposition the nipple to a more proportionate position. 

Combining a Breast Augmentation With a Mastopexy 

For those who are looking to enhance both the size and position of their breasts, then you can talk to your plastic surgeon about combining a breast lift with an augmentation. Combining both can save you both money and time spent in recovery.

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
