Augmented mastopexy is a surgical procedure that can restore the youthful appearance of your breasts in no time.
This intervention combines a breast lift with enlargement surgery. It’s the perfect way to add size and shape to your breasts while reducing sagging.
Even though the procedure is not easy to perform, it’s safe and effective. Research shows that the risk of complications is lower than having these two procedures separately.
Breast augmentation with mastopexy is a complex procedure that can drastically enhance your look, resulting in larger, perkier breasts. Before considering this intervention, ask yourself:
Do I want tighter, firmer breasts or do I want them larger and fuller? Do I want both?
If the answer to this last question is yes, then you can have all these things done at once. All you need is an augmented mastopexy.
The procedure takes 2 to 4 hours and requires general anaesthesia. The type of incision and the techniques used will depend on how much tissue it is necessary to remove to achieve the desired results.
The best candidates are women who have sagging breasts and have lost fullness in the chest area. These issues can be due to aging, pregnancy, sudden weight loss, or breastfeeding. An augmented mastopexy can restore fullness to your breasts while giving them a tighter appearance.
After you choose the desired breast size and type of implant, your surgeon will determine how and when the intervention will take place. He or she may also advise you to stop taking birth control pills, aspirin, anticoagulants, and other medications that can affect healing and lead to complications.
During surgery, an incision will be made just under the breast and the implant will be inserted over or under the chest muscle. Afterwards, your surgeon will proceed with the mastopexy, removing excess skin to lift the breast and reposition the nipple.
The incisions will be stitched up and dressed. Surgical drains may or may not be necessary. You will be required to wear a special bra for several weeks after the procedure; this will be provided by our team along with painkillers, anti-inflammatory drugs, and antibiotics.
In the first couple of days, you may experience some pain and discomfort. Limited range of motion, numbness, and nipple hypersensitivity are common symptoms and will subside within a week or so. Any scars you may have will fade over time.
The risk of complications is minimal as long as you follow the surgeon’s recommendations. Patients must keep the dressing clean and dry and avoid heavy activities. A follow-up appointment is required 7 days after the procedure. If you have non-dissolvable sutures, they will be removed.
The first results will be noticeable immediately after surgery. However, it takes 3 to 6 months to see improvements in breast size and shape. Over 70 percent of women who undergo this procedure report a better quality of life and more than 95 percent would recommend it.
Most breast implants last for over 10 years, or even for a lifetime. It depends on how you care for your breasts after surgery. Breastfeeding, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations can interfere with the results. In some cases, revision surgery may be necessary.
An augmented mastopexy can radically improve your life. You’ll look younger, feel more confident, and have the body you’ve always dreamed of. Contact us to find out more about this procedure.
You will be under general anaesthetic during the operation and the doctor will administer local anaesthetic to reduce discomfort afterwards.
The operation usually takes 2 to 4 hours, depending on your anatomy.
You should return to work within 2 to 5 days
The time taken for full recovery depends mostly on where the implants are positioned and how fast you are healing. It can take up to 4 months.
Generally, an augmented mastopexy is performed as day surgery, but you may need an overnight stay.
This procedure requires a long time to heal properly. You should return to the gym only after 45 to 60 days.
