In the world of cosmetic surgery, breast enhancement procedures like lifts, augmentations, and combinations of both have become increasingly popular. Each procedure offers unique benefits, but understanding which one aligns with your personal aesthetic goals can be challenging. Dr. Paul Papillion wants to demystify these options, and help you make an informed decision.

Understanding Breast Lift (Breast Mastopexy)

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is designed to raise and firm the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. This procedure is ideal for women experiencing sagging due to aging, after pregnancy, or significant weight changes. The process involves making incisions – the pattern depends on your breast size and shape, as well as the degree of sagging. Recovery usually takes a few weeks, during which you’ll see a notable elevation and enhanced breast shape. Our gallery of before-and-after pictures illustrates the transformative results you can expect.

Exploring Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation focuses on enhancing the size and shape of your breasts. This is perfect for women who wish to increase their breast size, balance asymmetrical breasts, or restore volume lost after pregnancy or weight reduction. Options include saline or silicone implants, each available in various shapes and sizes to suit your body type. The procedure involves incisions through which implants are inserted either above or below the pectoral muscle. Recovery time varies, but patients typically resume normal activities within a few weeks, enjoying fuller and more contoured breasts.

Combining Breast Lift and Augmentation

For some, a combination of a lift and augmentation may be the best approach. This is particularly beneficial for those who desire not only a lift but also an increase in breast volume. By combining these procedures, you can achieve a more youthful and fuller breast profile. The process requires careful planning, and recovery may be longer than when undergoing a single procedure. However, the results are often more dramatic and satisfying.
