What is Breast Augmentation Mastopexy (BAM)?


Breast augmentation mastopexy cosmetic surgery procedure is highly popular. Your breast surgeon will recommend this procedure if you are looking to enhance your breast size along with its shape and appearance. This plastic surgery can give you tighter, perkier, and lifted breast silhouette.

Ideal candidates for BAM are those that are worried about sagging breasts, loss of breast volume, and downward pointing nipples. Board certified plastic surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) provide breast augmentation mastopexy to patients in Houston, Texas, TX, and surrounding locations.

What Does BAM Involve?

There are two different surgeries combined into this one cosmetic surgery. Your plastic surgeon will perform a breast augmentation along with a breast lift.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation mastopexy involves inserting silicone or saline implants under the pectoral muscles to enlarge breast size. The plastic surgery procedure involves placing implants and stretching the skin taut for a perkier and more youthful appearance.

Breast Lift

The second aspect of a breast augmentation mastopexy is to lift sagging or droopy breasts. Weight loss, pregnancy and aging can cause breasts to sag. You can address the size and appearance of your breasts with BAM. During the surgery, your surgeon will trim away excess skin to help you attain your aesthetic goals.

Who Needs Breast Augmentation Mastopexy?

Breast augmentation mastopexy may be the right procedure for you if you are looking to improve the size of your breasts along with their shape. The procedure effectively combines breast augmentation and lift in one surgery. You should discuss your candidacy with your surgeon if you are already planning to go ahead with either breast lift or implants.

The combined surgery has the same procedural risk profile and downtime as with individual surgeries. However, getting a breast augmentation mastopexy procedure could dramatically improve the end results. You may even be able to address issues with your nipple-areola complex during the procedure.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia. Once you are under, the cosmetic surgeon will begin making an incision around the areolas or under the bust line. They will create a pocket through the incisions to accommodate your implants. The implants are placed under pectoral muscles.

Once the implants are placed, the surgeon will create another incision vertically from the lower part of the areola down to the breast crease. This incision is made to trim away any loose or excess breast skin. Your surgeon will bring your breast tissues together to create firmer, perkier, and lifted breasts.

The surgeon, depending on the pre-surgery customized plan, may also reposition and resize the areolas. This is usually done for a more youthful appearance. The plastic surgeon will use removable or dissolvable sutures to close the wound and wrap the breasts in bandages.

Total time spent inside the operating room is between 2 and 3 hours. The procedure is performed as outpatient and you should return home the same day. Cosmetic surgeons at ACPS receive patients from Houston, Texas, TX, and nearby areas for breast augmentation mastopexy.
