Augmentation Mastopexy is a cosmetic surgery procedure that combines the benefits of breast augmentation and a breast lift. It is a popular choice for women who want to enhance the size and shape of their breasts. The surgery involves inserting a breast implant and reshaping the surrounding tissue to give a more youthful and lifted appearance.
Why consider Augmentation Mastopexy?
Many women opt for Augmentation Mastopexy to restore their breast volume and improve the shape of their breasts. The procedure is ideal for women who have lost breast volume due to weight loss, pregnancy, or aging. It is also suitable for women who have sagging or drooping breasts and want to achieve a more youthful and perky appearance.
What happens during the procedure?
The Augmentation Mastopexy procedure typically involves the following steps:
Anesthesia: The patient is given general or local anesthesia depending on the extent of the procedure.
Incisions: The surgeon will make incisions in the breast tissue to create a pocket for the implant. The incisions are usually made around the nipple, in the crease under the breast, or the armpit.
Placement of the implant: The breast implant is then inserted into the pocket created by the incisions. The surgeon will adjust the position of the implant to ensure it is in the right place.
Reshaping of the tissue: The surgeon will then reshape the surrounding tissue to give the breasts a lifted and youthful appearance. This may involve removing excess skin or repositioning the nipple to a higher location.
Closing the incisions: The incisions are then closed using sutures, and a bandage is applied to the breasts.
What to expect after the surgery
After the surgery, the patient will experience some swelling and discomfort in the breast area. Pain medication is usually prescribed to help manage the pain, and the patient is advised to rest and avoid strenuous activities for several weeks. The patient will also need to wear a supportive bra to help the breasts heal properly.
Most patients can return to work within a week of the surgery, but full recovery can take several weeks. The final results of the surgery may not be visible for several months as the breasts continue to heal and settle into their new shape.
