Breast Lift vs. Breast Augmentation: How Are They Different?

Breast lift vs. breast augmentation Both breast lift and breast augmentation are cosmetic procedures that aim to enhance the breasts. However, there are some differences in what the procedures are set out to do. Depending on what you are wanting to achieve, one procedure may be a better fit for you than the other. In this blog, we are going to talk about what these two procedures are and how they are different from one another. 

What Is a Breast Lift?

This is a cosmetic procedure that raises the breasts by removing excess skin, lifting the breasts, and tightening the remaining skin and tissues to shape and contour the breasts. This procedure leaves women with a more youthful and refined appearance. 


  • Firmer Breast Appearance: A breast lift will place your breasts higher up on your chest to avoid sagging. The tissue surrounding the breasts is tightened as well to provide stability and support
  • Rejuvenated Look: This procedure leaves you with a refined, youthful look. 
  • Confidence Boost: When you look good, you feel good. That is exactly what the breast lift looks to help you with

What Is Breast Augmentation? 

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that uses implants to enhance the breasts’ size, shape, and contour. This is a great procedure for women that are looking to increase the size of their breasts. 


  • Enhance Appearance: Breast augmentation enhances the overall appearance of your breasts. If you think you have small breasts, you can increase their size through this procedure 
  • Reduction in Size: Can reduce the size of the breasts from either pregnancy or significant weight loss
  • Correct Asymmetry: If you are struggling with asymmetry in your breasts, breast augmentation can address those issues 
  • Confidence Boost: Just like a breast lift, breast augmentation can help you boost your self-confidence
