A breast lift or Mastopexy result may be complemented by a breast augmentation procedure. A silicone or saline breast implant is used to enhance the breasts upper pole (top of the breast) fullness.
Patients with sagging (ptotoic) breasts accompanied by a loss of fullness of the top portion of their breasts or generalized volume loss are good candidates for this combined procedure.
Normal breasts sag due to advanced age, pregnancy and stretching of the breast skin from weight gain or loss. Women seeking a breast lift and augmentation in our Las Vegas office most often relate a wish to regain the fullness as well as “perkiness” from their late teens and early twenties.
To correct the issue of volume and/or fullness loss in the breast, a breast augmentation is often recommended along with the breast lift. Breast implants work well to restore lost volume. In some rare cases, an implant alone may lift the breast without the need for a Mastopexy or breast lift.
The placement of an implant under the pectoralis muscle will greatly enhance fullness of the upper breast, filling out this space while also improving breast projection. It is important to note that the additional weight may accelerate the rate of breast ptosis should the implant be placed above the muscle.
