Breast surgery is one of the most sought after cosmetic surgeries in the United States every year. While breast augmentations remain the most popular of the breast enhancement surgeries, it is important to realize that you have other options for improving the appearance of your breasts.
In fact, breast lifts are growing in popularity at a rate faster than breast augmentations. With two popular surgeries available it can be difficult for some patients to choose which procedure is right for them. In order to decide it is important for you to discuss your cosmetic goals and health history with your surgeon. Dr. Garcia can help you choose the procedure that is the safest for you and the most appropriate for accomplishing your goals.
Breast augmentations are ideal for patients who know that they would like to enlarge the size of their breasts. A breast augmentation involves using breast implants to enlarge and reshape your breast tissue. It is important to know that implants are not lifelong devices and may have to be replaced or readjusted with a second surgery over time.
To the contrary, breast lifts do not increase the size of your breasts. Instead, a breast lift raises and contours the shape of your breasts. Many patients find this procedure to be more natural looking to their appearance. While breast lifts do not involve implants that will have to be adjusted, lifts to allow your breast tissue to continue to age naturally.
