If you’ve found yourself considering enhancements to your breasts, the array of options available might seem a bit overwhelming.

Dr Adnan Tahir is here to guide you through the nuances of breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast implants, helping you make an informed decision tailored to your goals and preferences.

Understanding the basics

Breast augmentation vs. breast lift vs. breast implants: what’s the difference?

Breast augmentation:

Breast augmentation primarily focuses on enhancing the size and shape of the breasts. The procedure involves the insertion of breast implants to achieve the desired volume and symmetry. It’s an excellent choice for those seeking fuller breasts or addressing asymmetry.

Breast lift:

A breast lift is designed to address sagging or drooping breasts. This procedure involves reshaping and lifting the existing breast tissue to provide a more youthful and lifted appearance. It doesn’t involve adding volume but rather repositions the existing breast tissue for a rejuvenated look.

Breast implants:

Breast implants, often associated with breast augmentation, are devices used to increase breast size or restore volume. They come in various shapes, sizes, and materials, allowing for a customisable approach to meet individual preferences.

The key difference between breast augmentation and breast implants is that breast augmentation is a comprehensive term for enhancing breasts through various surgical methods, while breast implants specifically involve inserting prosthetic devices for size or shape.

Which is right for you?

1. Desired outcome:

  • Breast augmentation: ideal for those looking to increase breast size or achieve a fuller bust.
  • Breast lift: suitable for addressing sagging or drooping breasts without necessarily changing their size.
  • Breast implants: used in breast augmentation to enhance volume and shape.

2. Sagging and volume Loss:

  • Breast augmentation: addresses volume but may not correct significant sagging.
  • Breast lift: specifically targets sagging without necessarily increasing volume.
  • Breast implants: addresses both volume loss and, to some extent, sagging.

3. Incision and scarring:

  • Breast augmentation: typically involves small incisions, resulting in minimal scarring.
  • Breast lift: involves more extensive incisions, potentially leading to more noticeable scars.
  • Breast implants: placement and incision type may vary, influencing scarring.

4. Duration of results:

  • Breast augmentation: long-lasting results, but implants may need replacement over time.
  • Breast lift: longevity depends on factors like lifestyle, genetics, and ageing.
  • Breast implants: may require replacement every 10-15 years.

Some frequently asked questions (FAQs)

1. Can I combine breast augmentation and breast lift?

Yes, a combination of breast augmentation and breast lift is common. This approach provides both enhanced volume and lifted contours.

2. Are breast implants safe?

Breast implants are considered safe, but like any medical procedure, there may be some post-surgical risks of pain, scarring, discomfort or more. Dr Adnan Tahir conducts a thorough evaluation to determine suitability.

3. How long is the recovery period for each procedure?

Recovery times vary, with breast augmentation typically having a shorter downtime compared to breast lift. Your recovery will vary on an individual basis. It will depend on the extent of the procedure and individual factors.

4. Can breast implants correct asymmetry?

Yes, breast implants can help address asymmetry by adding volume to one or both breasts as needed.

5. Will I lose breast and nipple sensations after surgery?

While changes in sensation are possible, most women retain normal nipple and breast sensitivity after these procedures.
