What is Breast Augmentation with Mastopexy?

“Breast Augmentation with Mastopexy” is a combination of two breast procedures performed together:
  1. Breast Augmentation: This involves the placement of breast implants to increase the size and enhance the shape of the breasts.
  2. Mastopexy (Breast Lift): This is a breast lift surgery that focuses on repositioning and reshaping the breast tissue to achieve a more youthful and uplifted appearance. There are various lifting techniques that can be utilized to which will be discussed at the time of the consultation.
Combining breast augmentation with mastopexy allows Dr. Chahin to address both issues of breast size and sagging in a single operation. It is a suitable option for individuals who not only desire larger breasts but also have concerns about breast ptosis (drooping or sagging).

What is the process?

The procedure typically involves making incisions around the edge of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple) which can extend vertically (lollipop or short scar vertical), or through an inverted T or anchor pattern scar. Through these incisions, Dr. Chahin can insert breast implants, reposition the breast tissue, and remove any excess skin to lift and firm the breasts.
It’s essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine if you are a suitable candidate for this combined procedure. Dr. Chahin will evaluate your breast anatomy, skin elasticity, and overall health to recommend the most appropriate approach to achieve your desired aesthetic outcome. Keep in mind that every individual’s case is unique, and the specific surgical plan may vary based on your specific needs and goals.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation with Mastopexy

Enhanced Breast Volume

Breast augmentation with implants increases the size and volume of the breasts, providing a fuller and more proportionate appearance to the body. This is especially beneficial for women who have naturally small breasts or have experienced breast volume loss due to factors like weight loss or pregnancy.

Improved Breast Shape and Position

The mastopexy component of the procedure allows for lifting and reshaping of the breasts. It can address mild to moderate breast sagging (ptosis) and reposition the nipples to a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing location.

Single Surgery, Dual Results

By combining breast augmentation and mastopexy into a single surgery, patients can achieve their desired breast size and shape improvements in one operation. This can mean less overall downtime and recovery compared to undergoing two separate procedures.

Symmetry and Balance

The procedure can help improve breast symmetry, as the surgeon can adjust the implant size and breast lift to create balanced and harmonious breast contours.


Each breast augmentation with mastopexy procedure is tailored to the individual patient’s specific needs and goals. Dr. Chahin can select the appropriate breast implant type, size, and shape, as well as customize the mastopexy technique to suit the patient’s unique anatomy.

Increased Confidence and Self-Esteem

Breast augmentation with mastopexy can have a positive impact on a person’s self-image and body confidence. For some individuals, addressing concerns about breast size and sagging can lead to improved self-esteem and a more positive body image.

Procedure Timeline

The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Chahin, a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation and mastopexy. During this consultation, you will discuss your goals, concerns, and expectations for the procedure. Dr. Chahin will also evaluate your breast anatomy, skin quality, and overall health to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the surgery.
Before the surgery, Dr. Chahin will provide instructions on how to prepare for the procedure. This may include adjusting medications, avoiding certain substances like aspirin that can increase bleeding risk, and fasting before the surgery.

On the day of the surgery, you will be taken to the operating room, and anesthesia will be administered. Breast augmentation with mastopexy is typically performed under general anesthesia, so you'll be completely asleep during the procedure.


Dr. Chahin will make incisions while the patient is in the upright position prior to surgery. These incisions are usually used to perform both the breast augmentation and the mastopexy.


Dr. Chahin will create a pocket within or behind the chest muscle (pectoral muscle) through the peri-areolar incisions. The breast implants (either silicone or saline) will be carefully inserted into the pockets. The type, size, and placement of the implants will be based on your preferences, body type, and Dr. Chahin's recommendations and will be something determined and agreed upon prior to the surgery.


After the implants are in place, Dr. Chahin will proceed with the mastopexy portion of the procedure. The breast tissue will be lifted, and excess skin will be removed to achieve a more youthful and uplifted breast appearance. The nipples may also be repositioned to a higher location on the breast mound for a natural and aesthetically pleasing result.


Once the breast augmentation and mastopexy are complete, Dr. Chahin will carefully close the incisions using sutures and surgical tape. The incision lines are designed to be as discreet as possible and blend with the natural color transition of the areola.

After the surgery, you will be taken to a recovery area where you'll be monitored until you wake up from anesthesia. You may experience some soreness, swelling, and bruising in the initial days following the surgery. Dr. Chahin will provide post-operative instructions on how to care for your incisions, manage pain, and support your healing process.
You will have follow-up appointments with Dr. Chahin to monitor your healing progress and address any concerns or questions you may have during the recovery period.

Full healing can take several months, with scar fading over time. Following Dr. Chahin’s instructions diligently and attending follow-up appointments ensures a smooth recovery and optimal results.
Will there be visible scarring after Breast Augmentation with Mastopexy?
Yes, scarring is a natural part of “Breast Augmentation with Mastopexy” and any surgical procedure. Incisions are typically made around the areola, but can extend down into the inframammary folds for both the breast augmentation and mastopexy components. The appearance of scars varies depending on factors like skin type, genetics, and post-operative care.
Dr. Chahin aims to make the incisions discreet, and scars tend to fade over time. The scars around the areola usually heal well and become less noticeable due to color transition. Optimal scar healing requires following post-operative care instructions, keeping incisions clean, avoiding strain, and protecting from sun exposure.
