What is a Breast Augmentation Mastopexy?

In simple terms, a breast augmentation mastopexy is a procedure that combines two separate surgeries, a breast lift and breast augmentation, into one all-encompassing procedure for a full breast revitalization.

Breast Augmentation

A breast augmentation is one of the most common methods of breast enhancement. An augmentation procedure involves using breast implants to increase the volume, projection, and shape of an individual’s breasts. This method of plastic surgery is typically undergone with patients who have:

  • Breasts that are smaller than desired
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Breasts that have been negatively impacted by weight loss, pregnancy, or ageing
  • Breasts that have been adversely affected by surgical procedures

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

For a large segment of the population, the term breast lift is synonymous with breast augmentation. However, they are two very distinct and separate procedures. While an augmentation involves using saline or silicone implants to increase the size and volume of breasts, a breast lift involves removing excess skin, fat, and tissue to raise, firm, and rejuvenate the look of sagging breasts. A breast mastopexy is best suited for prospective patients who have:

  • Stretched breast tissue due to ageing, pregnancy, or weight loss
  • Breasts that sit lower than desired
  • Breasts that are disproportionate in shape to each other
  • Nipples that project in an undesirable fashion or to increase nipple projection

Why Should I Combine The Two?

There are many instances where, for an individual to achieve their desired appearance, a breast lift or breast augmentation alone will not suffice. For these patients, the specialized procedure of a breast augmentation mastopexy is available so that aspects of breast implants and a breast lift can be combined to satisfy your wants and needs.

If any of the reasons for getting an augmentation or lift apply to you, then a breast augmentation mastopexy could provide you with excellent benefits, including: 

1. Enhanced Results

When both surgeries are combined into one, your surgeon will have greater control over your final appearance, meaning there is a greater likelihood you will be pleased with the results. When performing a breast lift and augmentation separately, there is a greater likelihood of surgical complications and less control for the plastic surgeon.

2. Less Scarring

Compared to two individual operations, a breast augmentation mastopexy will have significantly fewer incisions. Fewer incisions mean less harm to your skin, fewer stitches needed, and less scarring. While the risk of scarring will always be present, no matter what the surgery is, the likelihood of significant scarring is greatly decreased with a breast augmentation mastopexy.

3. Shorter Recovery Time

This benefit is quite clear and does not require much explanation. If you were to opt for two separate surgeries for a breast lift and implants, it would require two separate recovery periods. With an augmentation mastopexy, there is only one recovery stage, meaning an overall quicker healing timeline.

4. Less Expensive Than Two Surgeries

There are so many things you can cut down on when opting for one surgery over two separate ones. By combining a lift and augmentation into one, you will be saving valuable time, resources, and energy, all of which will lead to a substantial decrease in costs!

5. Just as Safe, If Not Safer

A breast augmentation mastopexy is just as safe as completing any one surgery and is safer than if choosing to opt for two separate procedures. With two surgeries comes double the chance for something to go wrong. Combining them into one lowers your risk for unintended consequences, meaning a greater likelihood that you will love your results.

How Long Does a Breast Lift Typically Last?

Depending on your age, genetics, diet, and other health factors, the results of your breast lift may last as long as the rest of your lift!

Is Breast Surgery Painful?

With any surgery, cosmetic or not, there will likely be some form of discomfort at some point. However, if administered by a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon, and if proper anesthetic and pain medication is taken, your discomfort will be quite minimal.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
