Breast Augmentation vs. Breast Lift – Which is Right for Me?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


You have made the decision to improve the appearance of your breasts, but do you know which procedure will best address your goals? Are you a better candidate for breast augmentation or a breast lift? Or would you benefit most from a combination of the two?

The best way to determine which procedure will most effectively meet your needs is to schedule a consultation with Dr. John A. Grossman and Dr. Philippe A. Capraro. During your consultation, our Denver plastic surgeons will listen carefully to your goals and perform a thorough examination of your breasts in order to recommend the ideal procedure to achieve your desired outcome.

In general, breast augmentation is an effective procedure for women who have:

  • Small breasts
  • Breast asymmetry
  • Irregularly shaped breasts
  • Lost breast volume due to pregnancy or weight loss

A breast lift is ideal for women who are happy with their breast size but would like to address the following issues:

  • Moderate to severe sagging
  • Nipples that descend below the inframammary fold or point downward
  • Lack of firmness

In some instances, you may benefit most from a combination of breast augmentation and a breast lift. This procedure is ideal if you need a significant amount of breast reshaping and also need to address sagging issues.

If you are interested in breast augmentation or a breast lift, please contact Grossman Plastic Surgery today to schedule your initial consultation. Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro serve patients in Denver and Littleton, Colorado.
