Choosing To Live A Healthier Life

I have always been someone who really loves to get out there and enjoy time with other people, which is why I started becoming more and more involved in outdoor activities. Unfortunately, a few months ago I was left with a debilitating injury that I knew I had to resolve, and so I met with my medical care provider. He told me that I had been living with a stress fracture, and I knew that I had to have surgery to get it fixed. During my recovery, I decided to create a blog all about health and medical topics to help other people just like me. Check it out.

Two Approaches To Breast Augmentation: Lifted Or Full

Most women do not realize that breast augmentation has two approaches. You can pursue both approaches simultaneously, or you can just pursue one. The following descriptions will help you decide exactly what you want from a breast augmentation procedure.


Breasts droop with age and/or pregnancy. (Most women falsely assume that breastfeeding causes breasts to droop, but is actually the hormonal shifts of pregnancy that alters the breast tissue, not breastfeeding itself.) If you do not like the fact that your breasts are nearly in-line with your bellybutton, you can have them lifted. This procedure is often accompanied by some surgical rearrangement of the chest muscles and possibly some liposuction under the armpits to create a smoother bra line. The end result is a smoother and younger-looking chest and breasts.


When women think of breast augmentation, this is the procedure they imagine. The breasts each receive a implant that is filled with saline up to the fullness and cup size that a woman wants. It produces a rounder, fuller breast and greater cleavage. It also corrects severe lopsidedness, a natural, but genetic issue for many women.

The effect is often larger breasts, since that is what many women are pursuing through this particular breast augmentation approach. If you do not want larger breasts, you can skip the implants and opt for just the lift surgery. The lift surgery can often take formerly fuller breasts and put them back where they used to be, creating the appearance of implant surgery without the implants.

The Purpose of Doing Both Approaches at the Same Time

Women who want larger breasts and want to lift them too opt to do both procedures at the same time. This reduces the costs associated with a second surgery, since you are already under the knife for one procedure or the other. It is billed as one complete surgery. If you were to do just a lift procedure, and then change your mind later and want implants, you would pay almost twice as much to do the second procedure with the implants.

Listening to Your Doctor

You should always listen to your cosmetic surgeon with regards to the procedure you want. He or she will have some sound advice about how best to approach your surgery and what you are looking to accomplish. You will appreciate knowing what can be done and how it is done when you are best informed and you have communicated effectively with your surgeon.
