When Pamela Anderson made her debut on Baywatch in 1989, she made a huge splash in more than just pop culture. She also had a significant impact on the cosmetic surgery world! Many credit her physique as the reason behind the popularity of breast augmentation. And to this day, many patients cite her appearance as their personal aesthetic goal.

But breast augmentation surgery isn’t the only cosmetic procedure meant to give the breasts a makeover. Most breast augmentations go hand in hand with another procedure to truly achieve the right result. The breast lift is an unsung hero in the cosmetic surgery world; breast lifts are extremely popular, extremely effective, but often are performed simultaneously with a breast augmentation and thus is not always emphasized in the description of the procedure. So what’s the difference? And why should you consider pairing your breast augmentation with a breast lift? Keep reading to find out!

What’s the Difference?

Breast augmentations provide volume, fullness and can alter breast size. Through either silicone or saline, breast implants can change a woman’s cup size, breast shape and provide a fuller appearance. However, implants alone do not have the propensity to lift saggy breast tissue. The breast lift is meant to do exactly as the name implies: it lifts the breasts up, giving them a higher profile on the chest, thus making them perkier, higher, and “tighter” by removing excess skin and contouring the breast shape. In short, each procedure serves a different purpose. Breast augmentation will change your breast size and provide fullness. A breast lift allows for your breasts to be lifted and perkier. So together, the breast lift and breast augmentation provide an impressive breast makeover!

What Are Some Benefits of Pairing Breast Augmentation with Breast Lift?

By pairing a breast augmentation with a breast lift, you have the convenience of two procedures being performed at the same time, meaning that your breasts will get a complete transformation without the need of having multiple surgeries and multiple recovery periods. Additionally, having both procedures done hand-in-hand allows Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, to truly shape your breasts to be as aesthetically pleasing and natural as they can be, especially if your breasts are saggy, uneven, or “deflated.” 

Pairing your breast augmentation with a breast lift allows Dr. Vinyard to address the following areas: 

  • Breast shape
  • Breast size
  • Position of the breast
  • Areola/nipple size and location 

I Have Uneven Breasts. Which Approach Is Best For Me?

For women hoping to correct uneven breasts, a breast lift combined with a breast augmentation creates the ideal procedure. Some surgeons will simply try to correct uneven breasts by using two different implant sizes. However, Dr. Vinyard uses a more cohesive method that delivers the most natural, personalized uneven breast correction. By pairing a breast lift and breast implant together, Dr. Vinyard is able to manipulate and sculpt the breast tissue, providing the best result possible. 

Am I a Candidate for a Breast Augmentation & Lift?

If you’re looking for a tighter, fuller, and perkier look, a breast augmentation and lift may be ideal for you. Furthermore, If you’re hoping to address breast ptosis (sagging) that can accompany significant weight loss, aging, hormonal changes, or pregnancy then a breast lift and augmentation is likely ideal for you as well, as it addresses breast ptosis while adding volume. 

If you aren’t sure whether you would benefit more from solely a breast augmentation, solely a breast lift, or a combination of both, we would love to talk with you during a complimentary consultation. Dr. Vinyard will thoroughly assess your goals, physique, breast condition, and your lifestyle to determine the best treatment option for you. This one-on-one consultation will be approximately one hour, allowing ample time to thoroughly discuss all available options and personalize the perfect procedure for you.
