Augmentation mastopexy (“breast lift with breast implants”)
Augmentation mastopexy, also known as breast lift with breast implants, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that combines breast lift (mastopexy) with breast augmentation. This procedure is designed to lift sagging breasts and increase their size by placing breast implants.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes incisions on the breasts to remove excess skin and lift the breasts to a higher position. They then place breast implants to increase breast volume and achieve a more youthful and fuller look. The size, shape, and type of implant used will be determined by the patient’s desired outcome and their individual anatomy.
The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and can take several hours to complete. Recovery time may vary depending on the individual and extent of the procedure, but most patients can resume normal activities within a few weeks.
Augmentation mastopexy is a popular procedure for women who have experienced significant breast sagging due to aging, weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding, and want to restore a more youthful and perky appearance to their breasts. However, like any surgical procedure, it does carry some risks, including bleeding, infection, scarring, and changes in nipple sensation. It’s important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure with a qualified plastic surgeon before making a decision.
