Breast Lifts & Augmentations: When Two Becomes One

Breast Lifts & Augmentations: When Two Becomes One

With technology and technique refining the means and methods of rejuvenation, it becomes easier for everyone to achieve the results they seek. More and more women are finding that the line between Breast Lifts & Augmentations is blurring. It is becoming safer and easier to endure two procedures at once — with no impediment to results.

Types of Lifts

breast liftDr. Lou Bucky, a Clinical Professor of Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, explains that there are a lot of choices for breast lifts today:

  1.  The breast lift for the woman with plenty of breast tissue that just wants to be lifted.
  2.  The breast lift with an implant for the woman that wants not only to be lifted but to be fuller as well.
  3.  The breast lift with a re-appropriation of fat for the woman that doesn’t want to have implants but wants some upper pole fullness.

Seeing is Believing

Technology is changing the way surgeons communicate with patients. Imaging programs now allow surgeons to show patients what they might look like after any of the three lifts. It’s one thing to see before and after pictures of what these procedures look like on other women, but it’s quite another to see, with unprecedented precision, the potential of a new you.

With all options visible, women are equipped to make their most informed decisions. And what is it that women find to be of the utmost importance? Dr. Bucky admits: “Shape is dominant.”

The Importance Of Shape

Whether you’re going up or down, Lifts & Augmentations are reaching a level of sophistication that means women are getting exactly what they want. A variety of incision-types and augmentation techniques have provided surgeons with the means to rejuvenate the unique shape and size of any patient.

Beyond technology and technique lies aesthetic. And Dr. Bucky reiterates that the science behind a surgeon’s work should remain invisible in light of the art that is the female form. The breast lift otherwise known as a mastopexy, is still one of the more challenging procedures that surgeons do. Skin that’s stretched out must be made to act as an external bra; to lift, hold, and tighten.
