The breast surgeons at Austin-Weston offer a variety of treatment options for women who are looking to improve the appearance of their breasts. Two of our most commonly performed procedures are breast augmentation and breast lift surgery.

Our experienced plastic surgeons will work closely with you to determine which breast surgery procedure will provide you with the best results based on your aesthetic goals. When you schedule your initial consultation, you should begin thinking about the following questions which will help us determine which type of breast surgery is right for you:

  • Are you happy with the size of your breasts?
  • Are you happy with the position of your nipples?
  • Are you happy with the feel or firmness of your breasts?
  • Do you want the top half of your breasts to look fuller?
  • Am I happy with my breast size and shape after my pregnancy?

When Should I Choose Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is generally performed to:

  • Increase the size of your breasts
  • Fill empty space left by breast tissue loss due to weight loss or pregnancy
  • Correct breasts that are of unequal shape or size

If you are unhappy with the size of your breasts, then you are most likely an ideal candidate for breast augmentation. This procedure can help you achieve fuller, firmer breasts and increase their overall volume.

Other candidates for breast augmentation include women who wish to reverse the decreased volume caused by pregnancy or weight loss. Breast implants can fill the empty space left by the loss of fat and perk up the area to return your breasts to their pre-pregnancy appearance.

When Should I Choose a Breast Lift?

A breast lift raises sagging breasts and returns them to a youthful position. It is often an effective procedure for women who want to reduce sagging caused by pregnancy.

However, a breast lift is most effective for women whose main concern is the position of their nipples. Your nipple position on the breast mound will often be the deciding factor as to whether or not you will need a breast lift. If your nipple is below the inframammary fold, you are most likely an ideal candidate for a breast lift. Your nipple placement will be evaluated during an examination performed at your initial consultation.

Breast Lift with Breast Augmentation

In many cases, our breast surgeons will recommend a breast lift in conjunction with breast augmentation to provide maximum effectiveness. Often, these procedures complement each other, offering you the best placement and youthful appearance for your new implants.
