Although breast implants are one of the most popular ways to enhance the breasts, breast lifts can improve breast appearance as well. For many women in Tampa, breast augmentation can be combined with a breast lift for fuller, higher breasts that look better than getting an augmentation alone.
As women age, gravity impacts the breast tissue, lowering the placement of the breast on the chest. This shift may be even more noticeable after other physical changes over your lifetime like weight loss, pregnancy or nursing. Breasts may take on a deflated appearance along with a shift in placement. A breast lift reshapes and repositions your existing breast tissue into a more pleasing aesthetic, giving you a perkier, more youthful profile. In fact, some women choose breast enhancement through a lift alone, even without implants.
Although breast implants change the size of your breasts, they only add volume, and can’t improve the placement of your breasts. For breasts that sit lower on the chest, adding volume alone won’t be enough to create the full, high breasts that are the primary goal of breast enhancement. Combining both procedures accomplishes both goals simultaneously: additional volume plus improved positioning.
Not every woman in Tampa/St. Petersburg is a candidate for combining a breast lift with breast augmentation. Breast lifts tend to work best on women who already have a moderate amount of natural breast tissue; smaller breasts are better able to resist the effects of gravity for longer. However, women with larger breasts can still benefit from a breast lift, and combining implants along with a lift can deliver very impressive results through the right combination of fullness, volume and youthful placement.
