Augmentopexy or Augmentation Mastopexy
In some cases, a breast lift and a breast augmentation, also referred to as Augmentopexy or Augmentation Mastopexy will be needed in order to achieve an aesthetically pleae size of the areola and lift the entire breast up. A good candidate for both would be someonesing result. A breast lift with an augment will add more volume, remove excess skin, reduce who has a severe loss of volume and droop in the breasts.
In most cases 1st degree ptosis (a low degree of sag) can be corrected just through the insertion of an implant (breast augmentation) as this adds volume to the upper portion of the breasts and raises the nipple to the inframammary fold since there is not too much excess skin. In this case, you will be increasing the cup size of your breast as well as decreasing the droop, without the removal of excess skin and tissue.
Maintaining Breast Perkiness
Breast implants are usually comprised of silicone gel, range in size from 200cc to 800cc, and have various styles of projection. Our section on breast augmentation goes into much more detail. The surgeon and patient consultant at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic will help you determine which size will be most beneficial to you.
The key to maintaining breast perkiness with an implant is the how the implant is placed; either the implant is placed in front of the muscle (sub-glandular placement) or behind the muscle (sub-muscular placement). When the implant is placed in a sub-muscular position there is more support to hold the implant up, thus more tissue to prevent gravity from causing breast droop in the future.
The cost of a breast lift with implants starts from $13,000. The fee is not affected by the size of breast implant that you and your surgeon choose.
The Ideal Breast (Lift)
Essentially there are no ideal breasts, but breasts that compliment your body and are aesthetically pleasing in your own eyes are what the surgeons at TCC strive to achieve.
There are various factors that must be taken into account when determining where to position the breasts. This includes a women’s shoulder width, height, hip size, cup size, degree of ptosis, and overall appearance.
An ideal breast would have the position of the nipples to be 21cm from the sternal notch (this is the hollow part at the base of the neck where it meets your chest) and have the nipple lay at the level of the inframammary fold. Measuring from the bottom portion of the breast, the nipple optimally should measure 7cm upwards.
Symmetry between breasts is also important. While no two sides of any body part are ever identical in nature, the talented surgeons at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic can come close to achieving symmetry (but it’s always important to keep in mind that both breasts will never be exactly the same).
