What is Breast Augmentation with Mastopexy?

While breast augmentation can increase your bust line by one or more cup sizes, mastopexy, or breast lift然而,这两种手术并不是相互排斥的. 丰胸结合bwin体育投注整形术会给你的bwin体育投注一个全新的面貌, which may be exactly what you are looking for. If you’re concerned about breast sagging (ptosis) and you want fuller, rounder breasts, you might benefit from combined breast lift-augmentation surgery. 

Who Makes a Good Candidate for Combined Breast Lift-Augmentation Surgery?

理想的bwin体育投注切除-隆胸患者是一个健康的成年女性,有明显的多余的bwin体育投注皮肤和渴望更大, fuller breasts. 这种方法通常对那些经历过产后bwin体育投注体积缩小的妇女最有用, menopause, or significant weight loss.

Pregnancy causes the breasts to expand by up to three cup sizes, which can stretch the skin, 使bwin体育投注在恢复到正常大小时显得泄气或下垂. 联合隆胸手术因此是一个频率的选择在大多数 Mommy Makeovers.

After menopause, many women notice the shape of their breasts changing. As estrogen levels decline, our bodies start to distribute fat differently, moving it away from the breasts and into the abdomen. This process, in combination with changes in skin elasticity, can make the breasts look flat (especially on top). 联合隆胸手术是一个很好的方法来扭转这些不想要的改变:这个过程的提升行动紧松, sagging skin, 而增加植入物可以恢复失去的体积,使每个bwin体育投注的上部“丰满起来”.

决定隆胸手术是否适合你, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I want larger breasts?
  • Do I want higher, tighter, and firmer breasts?
  • Do I want both?

If you immediately answered that you want breasts that are larger, higher, and firmer, 那么你很可能适合做联合隆胸手术.

Breast Augmentation with Mastopexy Surgery

这种双重手术需要三个小时,通常是在全身麻醉下进行的. 切口的类型将取决于要切除的皮肤数量和达到预期的提容. Minimal tightening may only require an incision around the areola, 适度的紧致可能需要一个额外的垂直疤痕,以最大限度地提高重塑, 要想真正收紧,就需要一个沿着bwin体育投注自然轮廓的锚状切口.

To accommodate the breast implant, the surgeon will create a pocket. The implant will be placed under the breast tissue, and in some cases, the implant will be placed under the muscle of the chest wall. Finally, the incisions will be closed using stitches. 绷带、胶带和纱布将用于支持和帮助愈合.

After Breast Augmentation Surgery

Your breasts will be uncomfortable, swollen, and bruised for a few days, although this can be alleviated with oral medications. Your bandages will be removed 1-2 days after surgery, and you will be required to wear a soft support bra all day, every day for 2-3 weeks. 为了排除多余的液体,可能需要插入引流管几天. The stitches will be removed after 1-2 weeks. Swelling and numbness may persist for up to 6 weeks. 在极少数情况下,感觉丧失可能持续一年或永久.

Your nipples may experience a burning sensation for up to 2 weeks. Moisturizer can be used if your breasts are dry after surgery. If you choose to moisturize, do not tug at the skin during application. Avoid moisturizing the stitch and suture areas. If you experience any complications following your surgery, you should visit your surgeon immediately

Potential Risks

With any surgery, there are always potential risks and complications. bwin体育投注手术后过度出血和感染并不常见, if either occurs, it can cause the scars to widen. Breast surgery leaves noticeable and permanent scars, but your bra will cover the scars, and you can expect your scars to gradually fade over time. 最终,大多数都像细纹一样,比周围的皮肤稍微苍白. Breast surgery can also leave you with unevenly positioned nipples, or a permanent loss of feeling in your nipples or breasts. 小到中等大小的隆胸假体比非常大的隆胸假体更不容易引起感觉损失, 所以我们建议选择合适大小的植体来达到你想要的效果.

手术后最常见的并发症之一是包膜挛缩, which occurs when the capsule or scar around a breast implant tightens, causing a woman’s breast to feel abnormally hard. The condition is treatable.

There is a chance that a breast implant will leak or break. With saline, 植入物会在几个小时内完全排干,你的bwin体育投注会无害地吸收盐水. With silicone, 如果bwin体育投注植入物周围的疤痕组织完好无损,你可能检测不到渗漏. However, if the scar tissue does break or tear, the silicone gel may move into the surrounding tissue. If your implant breaks, 你应该联系你的整形外科医生,因为你将需要第二次手术来更换泄漏的植入物.

训练有素的放射科医生将需要执行特殊的移位技术,因为bwin体育投注植入物可能会在某些视图上模糊bwin体育投注组织. As such, 我们要求所有年龄超过40岁的患者在植入bwin体育投注前做bwin体育投注x光检查(如果他们最近还没有做过bwin体育投注x光检查).

减少联合隆胸术后并发症的发生, you may need to make certain lifestyle changes. 吸烟者必须在手术前后至少戒烟三周. 这一要求的存在是因为吸烟会增加术后出血的风险, infection, and scarring. You may also need to stop taking certain medications, especially any medications that thin your blood. 如果你定期服药,你应该在决定做手术前咨询你的医生. Your doctor will advise you on the safest course of action.

Recovery

Most patients return to work a few days after surgery, depending on the amount of activity their job requires. 在最初的两到三周,你的bwin体育投注对直接刺激非常敏感. 如果你的bwin体育投注在3到4周后不再疼痛,bwin体育投注接触应该没问题. No heavy lifting, pushing, 或者在术后至少两周内用上半身拉. 在头两周内,我们不鼓励任何导致心率或血压升高的活动.

手术后,手术疤痕会在六周内呈现粉色和坚硬. 手术瘢痕在几个月内可能会变宽或保持不变. They will eventually fade, though they will not disappear completely. 如果你在恢复期遇到任何严重的并发症, contact our Nashville, Tennessee office to speak with a breast augmentation surgeon.
