Breast Lift vs Breast Augmentation

If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your breasts, you may have decided that breast surgery is your best option to meet your aesthetic goals. There are two primary procedures that Houston, Texas plastic surgeon Dr. Ciaravino performs.

First is a breast augmentation, which incorporates the use of silicone or saline implants. Second, is the breast lift, which restores breasts to a youthful appearance after they have started to sag or droop. Dr. Ciaravino may suggest a combination of both procedures.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is the most common method for allowing women to have the breasts they have always wanted. If your breasts are small, sagging, or if you have had a previous breast augmentation surgery you are unhappy with, breast augmentation performed by Dr. Ciaravino can help you to achieve your desired results. Some benefits include:

  • You have a choice between saline and silicone breast implants, each with their own benefits
  • Breast implants allow Dr. Ciaravino to enhance the size of your breasts as well as the shape.
  • There are options to choose from to give you your desired results, including where the incision is placed, placement of the breast implants, as well as the size and shape of your new breasts.
  • Dr. Ciaravino uses his unique surgical technique to reduce the length of recovery and improvement of results.

Benefits of a Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

A breast lift may be more appropriate for those women who are comfortable with the size of their breasts, but are more concerned with sagging due to aging or childbirth. A breast lift can help you to regain the youthful appearance of your chest.

  • Breast implants are not always used, which may appeal to some women. Your breasts will still be the ones you were born with, simply restored to their former youthful appearance.
  • Dr. Ciaravino’s surgical technique helps to ensure that there will be minimal scarring after you have completely healed.
