Comparing Breast Enhancement Options: Which Surgery Is Right for You By Michael A. Devlin, MD on January 24, 2024

woman with aesthetically pleasing body contoursFor some women, the breasts are an area of concern on their body. Some women are unsatisfied with the natural size or shape of their breasts, while others experience unwanted changes related to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging. 

Dr. Michael Devlin offers several breast enhancement procedures at his cosmetic surgery center, including breast augmentation to enhance breast size and breast lift to address sagging. Dr. Devlin compares breast enhancement options to determine which surgery is most appropriate to meet the unique needs of his Little Rock, Conway, and Hot Springs, AR, patients.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is the most widely performed breast enhancement surgery. Breast augmentation utilizes breast implants to increase breast size and enhance breast shape. This surgical technique is highly customizable. 

Patients can choose the type of breast implant (silicone or saline), the shape of the breast implant, the size of the breast implant, the location of the breast implant (above or below the chest muscle), and the breast augmentation surgical technique (the type of incision used). 

The high degree of personalization allows patients to enhance their breasts and improve body contours while maintaining a natural appearance and proportionate figure.

Breast Lift

Breast lift is another popular breast enhancement procedure. A breast lift addresses sagging, which can occur as a woman ages. The breasts can start to point downward as skin loses elasticity due to genetics, the natural aging process, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. During a breast lift procedure, Dr. Devlin removes excess breast tissue and skin, reshapes the breast, and repositions the nipple to lift the breasts and restore a youthful appearance.

Combined Breast Enlargement and Lift

Many times, women have more than one concern regarding the appearance of their breasts. For example, it is not uncommon for women to desire larger breasts while also wanting to address sagging and loss of skin elasticity. Dr. Devlin can combine breast enlargement and lift to achieve those goals. 

Breast Reduction

Countless women wish for larger breasts, but many others have problems associated with breasts that are too large or disproportionate to their figure. Excessively large breasts can draw unwanted attention and often cause neck, back, and shoulder pain. Dr. Devlin can perform a breast reduction to eliminate excess breast tissue, reduce the size of the bustline, and alleviate discomfort associated with large, heavy breasts.

Combined Breast Reduction and Lift

Heavy breasts put a strain on the skin, so sagging is a concern commonly associated with a large bustline. People who undergo breast reduction frequently combine the procedure with a lift to enhance surgical results. A reduction and lift eliminates unwanted breast tissues and loose skin and repositions the breasts for a smaller and perkier bustline.

Breast Implant Revision

Occasionally, women are unhappy with the results of previous breast augmentation or their aesthetic goals change over time. To address these concerns, Dr. Devlin offers breast implant revision. During breast implant revision, Dr. Devlin removes old implants and replaces them with new ones. New implants can be a different type, size, shape, or texture or be placed in a different position, depending on the patient’s specific desires.
