Breast lifts do not require implants. In a breast lift, existing natural breasts are reshaped by lifting and tightening, thus making them firmer, perkier, and younger-looking. It is an excellent choice for correcting sagging, but by itself does not produce fuller breasts. Women who want to improve sagging and breast volume can do both procedures simultaneously (referred to as augmentation/lift) or gradually, depending on the patient’s circumstances and preferences. Deciding which procedure is best to lift or augmentation is the most appropriate choice that should not take lightly by the patient. Be sure to ask your surgeon and pay attention to what you want to achieve. Make sure you understand what everyone is involved with, what the risks are, and how the situation is improving. In the end, it’s a personal decision – and it’s your decision – but it needs to be informed. What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift restores saggy breasts that are firmer, perkier, and more aesthetic.

Common Reasons To Choose Breasts Lift Surgery:

How Does Breast Lift Surgery Fix Breast Asymmetry?

The surgeon performs breast lifting with different procedures . The technique that a doctor uses depends on the size and shape of the breasts and how much you need. Before surgery, your surgeon may ask you not to take certain medicines. It includes medications such as aspirin, which thin your blood. If you are a smoker, you should stop smoking about four weeks before the procedure. Smoking can interfere with your body’s ability to recover after surgery. It can cause serious wound healing problems, such as loss of nipples or breast skin. In general, breast lift surgery involves the following steps:
- Patient breast are marked in an upright position by the surgeon to determine the location of the newly lifted nipples on the breast.
- You are given an anaesthetic to relieve your pain then you will sleep during the operation. It is called the general anaesthesia.
- A surgeon makes an incision around the areola. The incision usually extends down to the chest, from the lower border of the areola to the crease. It may extend along the sides of the areola. But this cut is only skin deep and areola is attached to milk glands still .
- The surgeon will reshape your breasts. The surgeon then moves your areola to the correct position of the new breast shape and can also reduce its size.

Breast augmentation involves inserting salt or silicone implants into the breast to increase its size and shape. This procedure is suitable for women who want to have fuller or more symmetrical breasts, or for women whose breasts must be more proportionate to their body shape. To some extent, an increase can also contribute to sagging. After choosing this option, you must decide what type of implant you want to use next. Silicone implants provide a natural and better feel for most women because they can help change the underlying chest plate (the area of the chest where the breast is located) and not only its size, but also the shape of the breast. Saline implants (rarely used) are right for women who avoid silicone implants and naturally have perfect breasts that only require full-size adjustment. What is Breast Augmentation?
It is also referred to as breast enlargement, mammoplasty, or breast implantation. Breast augmentation surgery will increase or restore breast size using silicone implants, saline implants or, in some cases, fat transfer. Breast enlargement is one of the most popular and most often performed cosmetic surgeries and has a long and successful track record. It satisfies women who want to improve, regain or restore their breast. When To Consider Breast Augmentation?
- If you need a body figure that is more proportionate to the body
- If you want your clothes to be more fitting
- If you think you can get self-esteem through such a procedure
- If pregnancy, weight loss or ageing have affected the size and shape of your breasts

Ambrosia Clinic certified plastic surgeon can help you choose breast implants to solve your problem. For example, if one of your breasts is small and the other is large, you can only choose to implantation into smaller breasts. Or you want your surgeon to place smaller implants in one breast and large implants in the other breast. The results are balanced. Breast Augmentation Procedure:
The operation gets done under general anaesthesia and usually takes about one and a half hours. There are several options for surgical cutting:
- Inframammary (fold under the breast)
- Transaxillary (armpit)
- Periareolar (the area around the nipple)
In some cases, breast lift with a combination of breast augmentation may need to be done to get maximum results. Women who lose volume but also have significant overhangs that cause a droopy appearance must return the size with the implant and tighten the shape to create a perfect shape. The implant itself will only produce a larger droopy shape. A breast lift without implants will provide the right size but disproportionate. These procedures complement each other and give the patient the best result. What to Expect After Breast Surgeries?
Breast surgery is an outpatient procedure performed when you are anaesthetized. You need someone you trust to take you home and care for you during the first 24 hours of your recovery. You need to schedule at least a week before work to recover. You also need to wear a surgical bra explicitly designed to help the breast heal.
