Breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed each year, but it’s possible that a breast lift could also achieve the results you want — perhaps even better. Both procedures change the shape of your breasts.
Dr. Nicholas Lahar is an expert in both procedures, and he and our staff can walk you through deciding between a Beverly Hills breast lift and an Beverly Hills breast augmentation. We work hard to personalize the process as much as possible so you get exactly what you’re hoping for.
To augment something means to make it bigger, and so it is with breast augmentation. The focus of this procedure is the size of your breasts.
When you undergo this procedure, implants are used to add volume to your breasts. Dr. Lahar helps you decide which shape, size, and type of implant will work best for you. Regardless of the implant you choose, it will look and feel natural, so no one is the wiser.
Breast augmentation could be right for you if you’re looking to:
- Have larger breasts
- Have fuller, rounder breasts
- Restore volume to deflated breasts
- Improve symmetry of mismatched breasts
- Rebuild breasts after breast cancer surgery
Breast lift basics
A Beverly Hills breast lift can be used to reshape and reposition your breasts without necessarily changing their size.
During a breast lift procedure, Dr. Lahar repositions your breasts by removing excess skin and tightening your remaining tissue. Depending on your situation and ultimate goals, a breast lift can also include resizing or repositioning the nipple and areola on your breast.
Many of our patients find that a breast lift is the right solution. The procedure can correct numerous complaints, including:
Just like the rest of your body, your breasts are subject to the force of gravity. Plus, over time, the muscles and other tissues that hold your breasts in place begin to weaken. The combination of the pull of gravity and weaker tissue can result in drooping, sagging breasts.
Breastfeeding is an excellent choice for the health of your infant, but it can also change the appearance of your breasts. A breast lift can help.
Have you gained and lost a significant amount of weight? You may not have been prepared for the effects weight loss can have on the look of your breasts. A breast lift can help you restore stretched, sagging breasts.
The right solution for you
A consultation with Dr. Lahar can help you understand what to expect before, during, and as a result of each procedure. That way, you can make a fully informed decision and end up pleased with the result. Either a breast lift or a breast augmentation can help you feel more confident and comfortable with yourself.
