What Is Breast Augmentation Mastopexy?

What Is Breast Augmentation Mastopexy?

Not everyone is satisfied with the natural appearance of their breasts. If you feel that your breasts are too small, not symmetrical, sagging, or they just don’t look like you wish they did, there are steps you can take to change the appearance of your breasts. If you desire a more lifted, full, and symmetrical appearance you can have your breasts enhanced with a breast augmentation or lift, or you can combine both procedures into one with breast augmentation mastopexy. If you are interested in changing the size and lift of your breast and improving their overall appearance, here is what you should know about breast augmentation mastopexy.

What To Know About Breast Augmentation Mastopexy

What Is Breast Augmentation Mastopexy?

Breast augmentation increases the volume of your breasts with silicone or saline implants, and a breast mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, raises the position of your breasts to sit higher on your chest. When both of these procedures are performed at once, it is referred to as breast augmentation mastopexy. Combining these two procedures can create ideal results, as it can both increase the size and symmetry of your breasts while also creating lift so that your breasts are shapelier and perkier. 

What Are Some Benefits Of Breast Augmentation Mastopexy?

  • One Procedure And Recovery
    Since breast augmentation mastopexy is two procedures in one, you reap the benefits of both lift and size enhancement with one surgery. This means only one period of recovery and cost savings by paying for only one surgery instead of opting for a breast augmentation and deciding to get a breast lift a few years later. 
  • Reduced Scarring
    When breast augmentation and a breast lift are completed at once, it requires only one set of incisions. Your plastic surgeon will strategically position all incisions in areas where scarring can be easily covered with a bra or bathing suit, but having only one procedure means reduced incisions and fewer scars.
  • Elevated Fullness And Volume
    As we age, our skin loses elasticity. This causes breasts to gradually fall and sit lower on the chest. A breast mastopexy lifts the breasts so that they no longer droop, and a breast augmentation adds volume. Together, the benefits of a breast augmentation mastopexy will help to create or restore voluminous breasts in an ideal position.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Breast Augmentation Mastopexy?

This procedure is ideal for anyone who is in good physical health, has been a stable weight for several months, is not (and does not plan to be) pregnant or breastfeeding, and wants to enhance the appearance of their breasts. Before you choose breast augmentation mastopexy, it is important to have a clear and realistic understanding of the procedure, the recovery process, and the results. Before breast augmentation mastopexy, book a consultation with your plastic surgeon to discuss all of these things and to determine what size implants you would like and what your desired final aesthetic is.

Q: Will I lose sensation in my breasts after breast augmentation?
A: It is true that sometimes you can temporarily lose sensation in the nipple(s) after breast surgery. But, as the nerve endings heal and the body begins to adjust to the new breasts, many people find that nipple sensation returns over time. Losing sensation permanently is very rare.

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.
