Houston Breast Lift or Augmentation for Cleavage?

Houston Breast Lift - Capriotti Cosmetic and Laser Surgery

A Houston breast lift may help restore some cleavage you’ve lost due to sagging breasts.

Many women seek breast enhancing procedures to improve the look of their cleavage. A common question is whether it’s better to get a Houston breast lift or whether you must get implants to enhance the look of your cleavage. 

First, it’s important to define what cleavage is. Cleavage is generally created by fullness in the upper inner area of the breast, as well as breasts that sit closely together. Breast cosmetic procedures can help re-shape cleavage. However, it’s important to choose the right type of surgery for your desired results. 

A Houston Breast Lift Procedure Won’t Add Cleavage. It Can Help Restore Some of Your Natural Cleavage

Over time, our breasts can begin to sag and droop, leading to a loss of cleavage. This is generally due to gravity and loss of elasticity due to age, pregnancy, or breast feeding. A Houston breast lift helps bring your breast tissue up higher and removes excess skin. This helps create a more youthful appearance for your breasts. Also known as mastopexy, these lifts can help restore some of your cleavage by repositioning your breasts higher on your chest. However, mastopexy cannot add cleavage or volume to your breasts. Instead, a Houston breast lift will only help correct sagginess and nipple position. 

Therefore, if you want cleavage but you didn’t have it before your breasts started to sag, you will likely need breast implants to create cleavage. Also, many women notice they lose breast tissue and volume after pregnancy or significant weight loss. If you are considering mastopexy after changes like these, it’s important to work with your surgeon to determine the right procedures for your desired results. 

Augmentation Can Add Cleavage

By contrast, a Houston breast augmentation can add cleavage to your breasts by adding implants. Many women choose to do a lift and an augmentation at the same time to enhance the look of their cleavage. To help add cleavage to your breasts, it’s important to choose implants that will add volume in the upper area of your breasts. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean you need large implants for cleavage.

Instead, implant shape can have a big influence on cleavage gain from your procedure. Generally, most women choose a round shaped implant for this. Also, your surgeon can adjust where the implant is placed to help bring your breasts closer together. In most cases, this means placing the implants above the muscle during your Houston breast augmentation. Therefore, be sure to explain how you would like your breasts to look after surgery during your consultation so you and the surgeon can choose the right options for you.
