Breast augmentation mastopexy is recommended for those people that want to get implants and a decided lift to their breasts. The procedure is among the more popular cosmetic breast enhancement surgeries and can be used for breast reconstruction as well. The biggest benefit of BAM cosmetic surgery is that it effectively combines two procedures in one surgical session.
The plastic surgeon will reposition your breasts to look perkier and youthful while adding volume and fullness to them by way of implants. The surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure and takes between 90 and 150 minutes. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides breast augmentation mastopexy to patients in Cleveland, Beachwood, Pepper Pike and Lyndhurst, OH, and surrounding locations.
What Does the Procedure Incorporate?
Your surgeon will administer general anesthesia and create incisions according to the customized pre-surgery plan. Generally, cosmetic surgeons place the implants before repositioning the breasts. This is to get a clear idea about whether any excess or loose skin needs to be excised.
Generally, the implants are placed by creating an incision below the breast fold. However, the surgeon may make an incision around the areola as well. Breast implants are placed under the pectoral muscles after creating a pocket.
The surgeon will make sure that all incisions are placed in discreet locations while performing this cosmetic surgery. Once the implants are placed, your surgeon will bring together the breast tissues and excise any excess skin. This is to offer a tighter and perkier appearance. Excess breast tissue can be addressed horizontally as well as vertically.
In some cases, incorrect positioning or size of areola-nipple complex may also be addressed. You can expect enhanced breasts in terms of shape and size after the procedure. Your surgeon will also address sagginess and downward pointing nipples for a more youthful appearance. Incisions are closed with sutures once the surgery is over.
Your breasts will be wrapped in bandages for the first 2 to 3 days. You will have to wear a special surgical bra for a few weeks once the bandages are removed.
Recovery Period Involved
Soreness and pain in the incision area is normal for the first few days after getting a breast augmentation mastopexy plastic surgery. The surgeon will prescribe painkillers to minimize discomfort.
You should be able to resume daily activities and return to work after 1 to 2 weeks of the surgery. However, it is important that you refrain from performing any kind of strenuous activities, such as lifting heavy objects, bending, engaging in athletics, and vigorous exercise for at least 4 weeks.
Final Results of Breast Augmentation Mastopexy
Most women find the end results of a breast augmentation mastopexy procedure to be satisfactory. This is because they get to address issues with size, shape, and position of their breasts in a single surgery. You will notice initial results immediately after the cosmetic surgery. However, full results will manifest gradually as the swelling and bruising recedes.
