Mastopexy augmentation, also known as breast lift with augmentation, is a surgical procedure that combines a breast lift with the addition of breast implants to enhance the shape, size, and position of the breasts. The procedure is typically recommended for women who have experienced changes in the shape and position of their breasts due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging.
The procedure begins with an incision made around the areola (the dark area surrounding the nipple) or in the crease under the breast, depending on the specific needs of the patient. The surgeon then lifts and reshapes the breast tissue to create a more youthful and perky appearance. The breast implant is then placed behind the breast tissue or behind the pectoralis muscle to add volume and fullness to the breast.
The procedure typically takes between 3 to 4 hours to complete and is performed under general anesthesia. Patients will experience some discomfort and swelling following the surgery, but this will typically subside within a few days. Most patients are able to return to work within a week to 10 days after the procedure, but should avoid strenuous activity for several weeks.
The results of the procedure will be visible immediately, but it may take several weeks for the swelling to subside and for the final results to be fully visible. The results of the procedure are long-lasting, but the breasts may change over time due to factors such as weight gain or loss, pregnancy, or aging.
Overall, a mastopexy augmentation is a safe and effective way to enhance the shape and size of the breasts, creating a more youthful and perky appearance. Patients should choose a qualified and experienced surgeon to ensure the best possible results.
