What is Breast Augmentation Mastopexy (BAM)?


What is Breast Augmentation Mastopexy (BAM)?Breast augmentation mastopexy is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries among women in the US. Cosmetic surgeons recommend this procedure for women who are experiencing sagging breasts along with a loss of breast volume. You don’t need a separate breast lift and breast augmentation procedure anymore. You can achieve all your aesthetic goals by having a breast augmentation mastopexy performed.

Your surgeon will understand your expectations and goals and assess them against your existing breast anatomy during the initial consultation. This will help them determine whether you are a suitable candidate for the surgery or not. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides breast augmentation mastopexy to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding locations.

Candidates for Breast Augmentation Mastopexy

Typically, BAM cosmetic surgery is recommended for women in their 40s or above who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts. The procedure is suitable for women that have small, droopy breasts. However, younger women may consider the procedure as well, especially if they recently became a mom or lost substantial weight.

Genetics is another factor that may make a patient suitable for breast augmentation mastopexy at a relatively young age. You are probably an ideal candidate if you experience the following:

  • Your breasts have lost shape and volume
  • Your breasts are droopy
  • You have elongated, flattened or pendulous breasts
  • Your nipples sag without support
  • Your breasts are asymmetrical
  • Your nipple-areola complex points downwards

Advantages of BAM

Breast augmentation mastopexy effectively combines two popular breast improvement procedures – breast augmentation and breast lift. These are a few benefits of having this surgery performed:

  • Similar results as individual procedures without the added risk
  • Common incisions are used for inserting implants and tightening breast tissues which reduces scarring
  • Implants help fill out the breasts, which reduces pressure on the breast lift
  • Single general anesthesia, surgery, and post-operative recovery process for dual results

Experts state that risk profile, side effects and recovery are similar whether you choose multiple surgeries or a single combined procedure. However, you do get to enjoy enhanced results after a single plastic surgery in case of a combined procedure.

Breast Augmentation Mastopexy Surgical Procedure

The procedure will begin once you are under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will create discreet incisions to insert the implant and tighten your breast tissues. This will be made beneath the breast crease or around the nipple-areola complex.

The surgeon will create a pocket to accommodate the saline or silicone implants. These will be placed right under the pectoral muscles. The surgeon will position the implants to achieve desired results and excise any excess skin. They will reshape and reposition the nipple-areola complex too as per the pre-surgery customized plan.

The plastic surgeon will use sutures to close the incisions. They will wrap the sutures in bandages for a day or two. You will be asked to wear a surgical bra for a few weeks following the surgery. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon receives patients from Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and nearby areas for breast augmentation mastopexy.
