The Augmentation Lift: Pair Two Popular Breast Enhancement Procedures

A woman’s body is constantly changing, and these changes often affect the breasts. As women age, breasts tend to sag due to the effects of gravity, since breasts are mainly composed of fat cells with no skeletal framework to support them. Other factors such as hormonal changes, menopause, childbirth, and breastfeeding can also cause the breasts to sag and droop.

Drooping breasts make a woman look older and can greatly affect her confidence and self-esteem. Unfortunately, no amount of dieting or exercising can help bring back your breasts to their normal, youthful shape. To remedy this, a breast lift is needed.

Additionally, many women feel that their breasts are lacking in size. To address this, breast augmentation is performed, where implants are placed in the breasts to add a boost.

When women experience breast sagging and a lack of breast volume, only only combination procedure will do: the augmentation lift. A number of women opt for the augmentation lift to restore the youthfulness of their breasts while increasing breast volume. The result is fuller, rounder, perkier, and shapelier breasts.


Breast augmentation is essentially a cosmetic procedure in which the breasts are enhanced in size and projection through the use of breast implants. The breast lift, on the other hand, is a cosmetic procedure in which excess skin tissue is removed from the breasts in order to reshape them, addressing drooping and making them perkier.

In the augmentation lift, both of these procedures are performed in order to more comprehensively enhance the breasts. To start, anesthesia is administered to the patient in order to make the procedure comfortable and painless. The choice of anesthesia will be made before the procedure date and will have been discussed extensively with the patient.

After the anesthesia has been administered, incisions are created. The exact location and pattern of the incisions will be decided upon during the augmentation lift consultation with the patient and the plastic surgeon. Options will vary depending on a number of factors, including the amount of loose skin to be removed and the type of breast implant to be used.

When it comes to breast implants, there are several different types available. Choosing the right one can be quite confusing. You can discuss the types of implants and the expected results with your surgeon, who will help you in choosing the right implant type based on your expectations and your body type.

The breast implants are inserted into tissue pockets through the incisions. Once they are correctly positioned, excess loose sagging skin is removed in order to reshape the breasts, and the incisions are carefully closed with the help of medical sutures.
