Augmentation Mastopexy

Augmentation mastopexy, a combination of breast augmentation and lift, is an ideal choice for those seeking to enhance the size, shape, and position of their breasts simultaneously. This procedure addresses multiple aesthetic concerns in one surgery, offering a comprehensive solution for sagging breasts, volume loss, and asymmetry. By lifting and adding implants in a single operation, patients can achieve a more youthful and balanced appearance with reduced recovery time compared to undergoing two separate procedures. Whether due to aging, weight changes, or post-pregnancy effects, augmentation mastopexy can restore confidence and enhance overall body contour.

Why Choose Augmentation Mastopexy?

During the surgery, the plastic surgeon makes incisions to remove excess skin, lift the breast tissue, and place implants for added volume and shape. The nipples may be repositioned for a more natural look. Advanced techniques and careful planning ensure minimal scarring and optimal results. This complex procedure requires a skilled surgeon, blending artistry with precision to achieve a youthful, balanced, and natural appearance.


Navigating the augmentation mastopexy surgery begins with a comprehensive consultation with a skilled plastic surgeon. During this initial meeting, the surgeon will discuss your aesthetic goals, assess your breast tissue, and explain the procedure in detail. Preoperative planning involves selecting the appropriate implant type and size, as well as determining the best incision and lift techniques for your unique anatomy. On the day of surgery, the patient undergoes anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. Postoperative care is crucial for optimal healing and results; this includes following the surgeon’s guidelines on activity restrictions, wearing supportive garments, and attending follow-up appointments. With clear communication and diligent care, patients can achieve beautiful, lasting results and a renewed sense of confidence.

Navigating the SURGERY

Am I a good candidate?
Ideal candidates are in good health, have realistic expectations, and wish to improve the size, shape, and position of their breasts. A consultation with a plastic surgeon can determine if this procedure is right for you.

What is the recovery time?
Recovery typically takes several weeks. Most patients return to light activities within a week, but full recovery and return to strenuous activities may take 4-6 weeks.

Will there be visible scars?
Scarring is an inevitable part of the procedure, but skilled surgeons use techniques to minimize and conceal scars. Over time, scars usually fade significantly.

How long do the results last?
The results of augmentation mastopexy can be long-lasting, but factors like aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can affect longevity. Maintaining a stable weight and healthy lifestyle can help preserve your results.


Navigating the risks of augmentation mastopexy requires a compassionate and informed approach. Understanding potential complications—such as infection, bleeding, implant issues, and changes in nipple sensation—empowers patients to make confident decisions. Open communication with a skilled surgeon is crucial; they will provide personalized guidance, thorough preoperative evaluations, and detailed postoperative care instructions. Emphasizing patient education and support, this approach ensures that concerns are addressed with empathy and expertise. By fostering a trusting relationship and prioritizing patient well-being, the journey through augmentation mastopexy can be navigated safely and confidently.
