Breast Lift with Implants
Simultaneous breast lift and implant augmentation is intended for the patients who require correction of breast sagging but also desire increase in breast mound size. The lift technique utilized to achieve a breast lift alone is quite different from the lift procedure requiring simultaneous implant placement. This is because the traditional lift procedure will not preserve adequate blood flow to the nipple and areola complex with the added dissection required for implant insertion. Instead, modified breast lift procedures have been developed to allow for a simultaneous breast lift and implant augmentation procedure yet allowing for blood flow preservation to the nipple.
Specifically, Dr. Mowlavi advocates the preferred use of the vertical mastopexy that will:
1) optimally lift the nipple areola complex
2) ideally shape your breast mound
3) provide proper blood flow to the nipple areola complex.
In addition, the vertical mastopexy will allow for an aesthetically pleasing nipple and areola complex shape and avoid unnecessary peri-areola scarring associated with less optimal lift technique such as the peri- areolar lift (popularized as the donut mastopexy). In order to appreciate the improvement that you can achieve with a simultaneous vertical mastopexy and implant augmentation, please see various before and after results below and make a consultation with Dr. Mowlavi!
