A woman’s breasts are a symbol of femininity. Full, lifted breasts can make a woman feel, well womanly. Otherwise, small or sagging breasts can affect a woman’s self-confidence. As women age or have children, they tend to lose the youthful shape of their breasts, either through loss of volume due to breastfeeding or weight loss.
If you’re unhappy with your breasts, a breast enhancement may correct them. The most popular procedures are breast lift and breast augmentation. These two have a common goal, which is to enhance the look, shape and feel of your breasts, but these both differ in many aspects.
Some women prefer breast lifts while others choose to get breast augmentation. There are also those who request both of these procedures. If you’re confused whether to go with a breast lift, a breast augmentation or both, let’s take a close look at each procedure to help guide you.
What is breast augmentation?
As the name suggests, breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that increases the shape and size of the breasts. This involves inserting breast implants, either silicon or saline implants, to make the breasts appear fuller. The shape can also appear rounder, depending on your choice of implants.
