I appreciate your question. A breast augmentation will replace or enhance volume in the breasts.  A breast lift will reposition your nipples and reshape your breasts, giving them a more youthful appearance. The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery. Best of luck!

It is confusing as people use the terms interchangeably but the augmentation is done with implants in most cases. They only way you can have an augmentation is to have it done with fat injections.

Difference between breast augmentation and breast implants

Thank you for your question.There can be some confusion as some people use the term interchangeably (e.g., I got breast implants vs. I got a breast augmentation).Breast augmentation is the surgical procedure that enhances the size of the breasts. Breast implants are silicone-based products that are used to increase the size of the breasts in a breast augmentation procedure.However, some surgeons also offer fat-based breast augmentation as it is a natural option, however, that has limits to how much it can increase the breast size.  Hope this clarifies the difference.
