Breast Surgery: Augmentation v. Lift

Breast augmentation and breast lift are two popular procedures for women looking to increase volume, enhance shape or adjust the position on the chest. While some may think these procedures can be done interchangeably, they are quite different and produce different results. Dr. Silverton put together this graphic to give a little more insight into these procedures and will hopefully help you decide which (or both) are better suited for your concerns! If you would like more information about these procedures or are ready to schedule a consultation, call (209) 952-2251 or schedule a consultation here.

  • Breast augmentation restores firmness and volume to the breasts using saline-filled or silicone gel implants.
  • A breast lift relocates dropping breasts to a position that gives them a more perky, youthful appearance.
  • Women whose breasts have lost volume and begun to droop may benefit from a breast lift with implants.
