Breast Lift With Augmentation
(Augmentation Mammoplasty With Mastopexy)
Many women feel that their breasts do not match their overall body physique. Small breast size may be due to a lack of normal breast development or to a decrease of breast volume following pregnancy or menopause. This procedure is designed to give the female patient a fuller breast. See breast life with augmentation before and after pictures.
Your breast tissue is not altered by a breast enlarging procedure. This operation is performed by placing an implant behind your own breast tissue, simply pushing it forward and enlarging the appearance of the breast. Most patients have been exceedingly pleased with this operative procedure.
The increase in breast size will be limited by the tightness of your skin, but significant improvement can usually be achieved. The final decision regarding implant size must be discussed with you before the procedure and every effort will be made to create an optimal breast for you.
A breast lift procedure is designed to correct the droopiness that occurs with time. In breast lift procedure, skin (and sometimes a small amount of breast tissue) is removed while the nipple/areolar complex is positioned in a more elevated position. In most cases, the nipple remains attached to the blood supply and nerve supply, so it is customary for patients to retain sensation and the ability to breast feed.
The combination procedure of breast augmentation with breast lift involves doing both procedures at the same setting to restore volume and youthful perkiness. Normal breast function should not be altered by an augmentation procedure. Although not all women are able to breast feed even without a breast operation, this procedure should not alter the ability to breast feed should this become desirable later.
