Breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast implants, and breast lifts are all popular procedures performed all around the nation, including at our practice, Vinings Surgery Center, here in Atlanta. Breast lift surgery can be combined with breast implants, or the two surgeries can be completed on their own, still offering fantastic results. So how do you know what type of surgery is best for you? And how do you know the right surgeon to go to? We’ve listed the differences between a breast lift and breast augmentation, as well as information about a top Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Colgrove, to help you make the best informed decision for your body and lifestyle.
Breast Lift Surgery in Atlanta
With a breast lift surgery, in Atlanta, Dr. Colgrove will tighten the skin and bring the breast tissue up to a more full and natural looking breast. There is no implant or fat added to the breast area, just the act of lifting the breasts by tightening the skin and ensuring the correct placement of the nipple. When you go in for your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Colgrove, he will help you picture how a breast lift would look. Known for making all of his patients feel comfortable, he will listen to and address any and all questions you may have.
Breast augmentation is another breast surgery option for women in Atlanta. Breast lift surgery can be combined with breast augmentation and that is another popular choice. Breast augmentation means increasing breast size and shape through breast implants. Women have the option between silicone gel, saline, and structured implants like the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. At Vinings Surgery Center, Dr. Colgrove offers women a 3D look at how their implants will look on their body after surgery during the first consultation. Unlike the lifting benefits of a breast lift surgery, in Atlanta, the benefits of breast implants are that they can increase breast size, breast symmetry, and provide better overall body proportion.
“Women choose our practice, I believe mainly because of my extensive experience. I’ve done several thousand cases of breast augmentation and breast lifts. Many patients that come in don’t realize they need a breast lift to get the correct result. We do have the latest Vectra 3D simulation, which helps a patient visualize and understand what the various implants are going to look like. Also, if they need the lift they can get a visual examination of what that whole package will look like.” – Dr. Colgrove
Should I Combine Procedures?
As Dr. Colgrove mentioned above, it is common for some women to combine a breast lift surgery in Atlanta with a breast augmentation. Many women choose to do this because they want to lift their breasts and increase their breast size or breast symmetry at the same time. This is a great idea for women who want to save time and money by combining procedures rather than doing them one at a time.
“It is becoming increasingly popular for women to combine breast augmentation with a breast lift [surgery in Atlanta]. Women who have had children often benefit the most from this combined procedure because of the significant changes their bodies undergo during and after pregnancy. It’s common for mothers to experience a loss of shape and volume after giving birth and breastfeeding, making such women who want to increase the fullness and perkiness of their breasts excellent candidates for a lift plus augmentation.” -plasticsurgery.org
