Lift or Enhance, Which Breast Procedure Will I Need?

As a plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has performed a variety of breast surgeries, Dr. David Whiteman often consults with patients who are unsure of which procedure they need. Two of the most commonly confused procedures are breast augmentation and breast lift surgery. Breast augmentation addresses the size, shape, and volume of the breasts but does not correct sagging. Breast lift surgery is specifically designed to reposition breasts to a more youthful location to eliminate drooping. Often, these procedures are combined for complete rejuvenation of the breasts.breast lift vs breast augmentation atlanta duluth ga

According to the 2012 statistics by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation surgery has remained the most popular cosmetic procedure in the U.S. for the past five years. Breast enhancement surgery involves surgical insertion of saline or silicone breast implants. Patients can choose from a variety of breast implants since there are different types, textures, sizes, and shapes. Allergan’s highly cohesive anatomically shaped silicone gel implants, also known as “gummy bear implants,” as another option for breast augmentation patients. Breast implants are also available as an option for some breast reconstruction patients.

Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, involves surgical removal of excess skin to tighten the breast area for a younger, perkier appearance. Over time, the effects of aging, gravity, weight fluctuation, and pregnancy can contribute to the loss of skin elasticity. Since breast lift addresses the area surrounding the breasts, this procedure can be performed on its own or combined with other breast procedures such as breast reduction surgery.

While breast procedures can be combined or performed individually, it is important to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your needs and goals.

Mother- Daughter Plastic Surgery?

Plastic surgery patients come in a variety of ages, shapes, and sizes. As each patient has different needs for surgery, Dr. David Whiteman discusses their individual goals to provide the most natural-looking results possible.

top-facial-plastic-surgeon-atlanta-gaYou may have seen in the recent news an uptick in mothers and daughters receiving plastic surgery at the same time. Although this may seem like an interesting way to bond, it’s not as uncommon as you may think. According to 2005 statistics by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, there has been a significant increase in the number of people getting surgery with a partner.

With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Whiteman understands that cosmetic surgery is an important and thoughtful decision ultimately made by the patient.  Sharing that experience and comfort with someone you care about can make that process even more meaningful.

Whether or not you choose to have cosmetic surgery at the same time as a loved one, the recommended procedures will differ depending on your individual desires and goals. For example, one patient may be more concerned with addressing signs of aging with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) or liposuction of double chin whereas their loved one may be more concerned with eliminating stubborn fat with a tummy tuck or a breast lift to restore perkier breasts.
