There are numerous surgical options for women looking for a better figure. Many women feel self-conscious about how they look, and this can affect their self-esteem and their lifestyle. If you want a more proportionate figure, augmentation mastopexy might be an excellent option for you.
Traditionally, breast augmentation with implants and mastopexy surgery have been separate procedures. Augmentation enhances the size of the breasts, whereas mastopexy helps tighten loose skin around the breasts for a more uplifted appearance without enhancing size.
Augmentation mastopexy combines these two procedures for an efficient and comprehensive overall enhancement of the breasts.
Women who are looking for enhanced breast size as well as more firmness can choose augmentation mastopexy. You do not have to choose one over the other – you can have the benefits of both!
You need to have realistic expectations about the outcome. This involves discussing your expectations with the surgeon before the surgery during a consultation. You’ll be able to give the surgeon a clear idea of your aesthetic goals, and they will have a chance to explain the procedure in greater detail.
For this combination procedure, it’s best to be in general good health. If you have any health problems or are taking any kind of medications, you need to inform the surgeon during the consultation process.
Women undergoing the procedure should wait until they have stopped breastfeeding before they undergo any kind of breast lift or enhancement.
Details of the Procedure
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. One of the most important factors is the pattern and placement of the incision. Typically, your surgeon will discuss this with you during consultation.
The pattern of the incision and its placement depends on many things, including the amount of sagging and the resulting need in terms of tightening. The incisions are kept as small as possible and are placed in inconspicuous areas.
The breast implants can be placed either under the breast tissue or the muscles, and this will also be discussed during your consultation.
It’s important to follow the surgeon’s instructions for your recovery process, as this will ensure the best results and avoid complications.
The recovery process is not expected to last very long, as most patients heal within a few weeks. You will need to take a few days off of work, and your surgeon will give you an idea of the expected downtime.
Avoid laborious work for a few days to avoid straining your body. Wear a supportive bandage for a couple of days after surgery in order to make sure that the healing tissues recover properly. Drainage tubes may be used for removing fluid from the chest area, which help to prevent complications. Your surgeon will recommend painkillers if needed.
