Breast Augmentation Mastopexy (BAM)

What is Breast Augmentation Mastopexy (BAM)?Many women want perkier, fuller, and younger looking breasts. Breast augmentation mastopexy procedure is aimed at exactly that by combining insertion of breast implants with a breast lift. Your board certified plastic surgeon may recommend this procedure if you want your breasts to appear tighter and firmer. The cosmetic surgery can also be used for repositioning the nipple-areola complex at elevated levels so as not to point downwards. Breast augmentation mastopexy surgery is usually performed with the patient under general anesthesia. Breast implants will help in adding more volume to the upper pole of the breasts while the breast lift will tighten your breasts for a more youthful appearance. Vinings Surgery Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides breast augmentation mastopexy to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.

Breast Augmentation Mastopexy Procedure

Your cosmetic surgeon will make incisions in pre-determined locations following general anesthesia as per the customized surgery plan. They may use a circumferential incision around the outer edges of the areola or make a vertical incision from the bottom half of the areola to the breast crease. The first step is to create pockets to accommodate the breast implants, which are generally placed under the pectoral muscle. The surgeon will use the same incisions to excise loose breast skin and to bring the breast tissues together for a firm and lifted appearance. It takes about 2 to 3 hours to complete this plastic surgery. However, the time taken varies widely between patients.

Downtime and Results

You should expect to get back to your regular routine in about a week or two after the surgery. However, it is vital that you stay away from vigorous and strenuous exercises for at least a month. This involves lifting heavy weights, contact sports, or other exercises. Bruising takes 2 weeks to resolve, but the swelling may take a little longer to subside completely. You will experience mild pain and discomfort for which your surgeon will prescribe medications. You should notice enhancements in your breast shape and size almost immediately once the bandages are removed. However, full results will take a few months to manifest completely.

Additional Procedures

You should consider getting a tummy tuck cosmetic surgery if you are bothered by weak muscle tone or loose abdominal skin in the tummy region. This surgery can be easily performed with breast augmentation mastopexy. Liposuction may be recommended by your cosmetic surgeon as well to remove excess fat from thighs, buttocks, upper arms, and other areas. Breast augmentation mastopexy is often recommended as part of mommy makeovers for restoring your pre-pregnancy figure.

Benefits of a Combined Procedure

The biggest advantage of a breast augmentation mastopexy is that you get all your breast issues addressed without having to undergo anesthesia multiple times. The recovery time in a breast augmentation mastopexy procedure is similar to individual breast augmentation and breast lift surgeries. You don’t need to stay away from work for a long time. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove receives patients from Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and nearby areas for breast augmentation mastopexy.
