Breast Augmentation or Breast Lift?

Dr. Max Polo, Plastic Surgeon at Baptist Health South Florida, explains a breast lift is performed to correct ptosis, which is sagging of the breast and it involves loss of volume and excess skin that could be because of pregnancy or weight gain, for example.

According to him, a breast augmentation is ideal when there is a very small amount of excess skin and a minimal degree of ptosis or sagging of the breast that can be corrected with placement of an implant, which is the best option because there is less scarring with it.
