Breast Augmentation with or without Mastopexy

Indications: Bothered by the feeling that breasts are too small. Weight loss has changed the size and shape. Loss of size and firmness after having children. Clothing fits the hips but not the bust line. One breast is noticeably smaller than the other. Self conscious wearing a swim suit or form fitting tops.

The purpose of this surgery is to increase the breast volume by placement of a prosthesis either above or below the pectoralis muscle. A natural look is achieved by placement of an implant that is equal to or slightly larger than the persons breast envelope (diameter). Do not rely on the procedure to provide cleavage. Cleavage is achieved by wearing a bra that pushes the breasts together and up. If the natural nipple position is low or the breast is sagging due to stretched out skin, then a Mastopexy (removing excess skin and repositioning of the nipple) may be required to achieve a natural youthful result. The Mastopexy may be performed in two ways. For description see Mastopexy. Surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Day surgery.

Procedure: Surgical placement of an implant (gel or saline) behind each breast (above or below the muscle) to increase volume and shape

Anesthesia: General

Note: Same Day Surgery

Side Effects: Temporary soreness, swelling, change in nipple sensation, bruising

Duration of Results: Gel Implants: 20 to 30 years (barring severe trauma) Saline Implants: 10 to 20 years. Implants will eventually require removal or replacement
