Breast lift can provide similar results as augmentation
November 5, 2010
For women who are considering cosmetic surgery to improve the appearance of their breasts, they may feel that the only option at their disposal is a breast augmentation. However, there are a number of other options available that can provide patients with equally positive results.
One of the alternatives to breast augmentation is the breast lift. Experts say that the procedure may be the ideal choice for many patients because the treatment can do a great deal to correct many aesthetic deficiencies, but does not require an implant. Being aware of all options may ensure that patients are more satisfied with their end results.
Good candidates for this procedure include individuals who have lost the shape, firmness and position of their breasts but are satisfied with their size and volume. It is important to discuss the expected results and the risks involved with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), is recognized as the world’s leading organization devoted entirely to aesthetic plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine of the face and body. ASAPS is comprised of over 2,600 Plastic Surgeons; active members are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (USA) or by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and have extensive training in the complete spectrum of surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures.
