Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, or Both? Jacksonville Plastic Surgeons Answer

The Surgeons at Florida Plastic Surgery Group Explain When a Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, or a Combination of the Two Is Most Appropriate for a Patient's Needs

JACKSONVILLE, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 15, 2015) - When it comes to cosmetic breast surgery, there is often uncertainty as to whether a breast lift or augmentation is more appropriate for one's needs. Both are meant to reshape and recontour the breast but in different ways. To help clear up this potential confusion, the surgeons at Florida Plastic Surgery Group weigh in on the debate.

The purpose of breast augmentation is to enlarge the size of the breasts. The Jacksonville surgeons explain that the best candidates for this procedure are those with nipples near the center of their breasts, who are interested in a size increase, and may or may not have mild ptosis (drooping breasts). The breast lift procedure, on the other hand, is designed to raise the breasts and tighten the surrounding tissue. This surgery, as explained by the Jacksonville surgeons, can correct moderate to severe ptosis and nipples that are positioned at the bottom of the breast and point downward -- all without increasing the breast volume.

Alternatively, the surgeons explain that breast lift and augmentation can be combined when a patient desires larger breasts in addition to a lift. At Florida Plastic Surgery Group, the surgeons observe their breast surgery patients as well as take measurements of the breast tissue and nipple location to determine which procedure has the greatest potential for the desired improvement, or if the best solution is to perform a combination lift with breast implants.

While a patient can conduct research to better understand the most appropriate procedure for their needs, the Jacksonville plastic surgeons encourage those interested in breast surgery to seek a board-certified plastic surgeon for a thorough evaluation and professional recommendation.
