Augmentation mastopexy in Bristol

Augmentation mastopexy is breast enlargement surgery where a breast uplift is carried out at the same time. 

Augmentation mastopexy is perfect for anyone looking to increase the size and fullness of their breasts while also giving a lift. Augmentation mastopexy surgery combines a breast lift with adding a breast implant at the same time. The mastopexy tightens the skin creating a perkier, lifted, more youthful breast shape, whilst the augmentation enhances the breast volume to give a more balanced appearance to your body.

Why choose breast augmentation mastopexy surgery

Augmentation mastopexy is for any woman looking to rejuvenate their breasts and improve the contour whilst increasing the volume and position of the breasts.

During pregnancy, the breast tissue grows, and then after breastfeeding, the tissues inside the breast shrink, but the skin surrounding it doesn’t. This can cause the breasts to look empty or deflated, with a tendency to sag. Losing breast volume or even having smaller breasts than before the pregnancy is very common, and it can impact self-confidence and body image. 

Similarly, women who have been through significant weight loss can be left with disproportionately small breasts compared with the rest of their body, and any excess skin can also cause drooping. 

Whatever your reason for wanting a breast enlargement and lift, augmentation mastopexy surgery can help get your breasts looking how you want them to. Augmentation mastopexy can also be used to correct breast asymmetry and tuberous breasts.

Is augmentation mastopexy suitable for tuberous breasts?

Women who are suffering with tuberous / tubular breasts can certainly benefit from augmentation mastopexy. The surgery can be used to release the constricted tissue, increase the volume and stretch out the tissue. It also allows Mr Sherif Wilson MB, ChB, MS, FRCS (Plastic Surgery) to lift one or both breasts if required. The choice of techniques for this cosmetic surgery involves careful analysis, and Mr Wilson will discuss the procedure with you in detail. In some cases, a secondary fat grafting procedure may be required 3-4 months after the surgery to refine the shape and achieve the desired breast shape.

Assessment for augmentation mastopexy surgery

During your consultation, Mr Wilson will assess if augmentation mastopexy is the right surgery for your needs.  

For example, if you are unhappy with the droopiness of your breasts but are happy with the size, then you will not necessarily need implants, and a breast uplift operation called a mastopexy might be more suitable. This is a different operation that involves lifting the position of the nipple and breast tissue and tightening the skin of the breasts. You can read more about breast mastopexy surgery here. If you are happy with the position of your breasts, but not the upper pole volume, size or fullness then a standard augmentation on its own may be suitable.  

In some patients it is clear from the outset that both operations will be needed. In this case the surgery can be performed as a combined procedure, having an augmentation and mastopexy at the same time. There is a higher risk of complications with this option. It can also be performed in two stages, having one surgery first followed 6 months by the other. 

If Mr Wilson feels that your particular needs fall between augmentation or mastopexy surgery, then it would usually be suggested to proceed with a mastopexy in the first instance. If you do not get the desired results from this surgery, then an augmentation can be performed 6 months later.

Breast augmentation mastopexy recovery

This surgery will require a one night stay in hopsital, as you will have drains overnight. Patients are recommended to take around two weeks off work immediately after the operation in order to ensure they recuperate fully, and are advised to refrain from any heavy lifting for the first few weeks. At a month most patients can resume most exercise. At six weeks, patients are generally completely healed and can resume all exercises.

Mr Wilson will advise that you must wear a supportive, front fastening bra during the first few weeks after the operation. Usually, a non-wired sports bra will be able to provide enough support, however there are bras designed purposefully for the post-surgical period that can be purchased. They will help to make your breasts comfortable and supported, aiding the healing process.

Are there risks of augmentation mastopexy surgery?

Complications with breast augmentation mastopexy surgery are rare, but as with all cosmetic surgery procedures, there are potential risks that you should be aware of.

In a very small number of cases, a collection of blood (haematoma) in the wounds can occur, even if drains are used. This is normally obvious within a day of surgery, and if significant you may need to return to theatre to have this removed under general anaesthetic. A wound infection can also occur any time after surgery until the wounds have fully healed.

There are so many options when considering surgery, it can be a bit overwhelming as it's such a huge decision. Sherif was recommended to me by a friend of a friend, who talked very highly of him and his work. My first consultation with Sherif was informative and relaxed, there was no pressure to progress with the surgery and I felt I was in good hands. I was given time and space to make my decision, and felt comfortable asking any further questions. The surgery itself went smoothly, I felt safe and well looked after. My recovery went better than I'd imagined and I was comfortably back at work within 2 weeks. I'm now 11 weeks post op and I'm loving the results - it really is life changing, and I'm so glad I did it, and chose Sherif to do it. Huge thanks to him and his team.

The service received from Mr Wilson and his secretary has been amazing. Kim has always been prompt and professional with all of our contact. At the initial consultation with Mr Wilson, he made me comfortable and at ease. Mr Wilson has always been so kind and considerate and made sure that he explained the options available to me and what each option would include. Mr Wilson was clear about what the results of each option would likely provide and the risks involved. On the day of my surgery Mr Wilson came to see me prior to the surgery to check that I was happy. The results of the surgery were better than I could ever have imagined. I got a small infection a couple of weeks after surgery and Mr Wilson got me in to see him the same day, provided me with antibiotics and it cleared up right away. I'm now 7 weeks post surgery and feeling right back to normal.

Wow, I honestly don’t even know where to start. I guess a MASSIVE thank you to Mr Wilson, he has quite frankly changed my life. From the moment I met him I knew that he was the surgeon for me, he listened to what I wanted, was very understanding and caring, he was honest with the outcome and explained everything perfectly. I knew that I had to have him as my surgeon for my Breast Reduction, the minute I left the consultation I booked my surgery, I only had 7 weeks to wait, I was beyond excited. About a week before the surgery I came to see Mr Wilson again just to settle my nerves, and he did just that. My surgery went incredibly well, I felt amazing and just so excited to see the results, I had no complications whatsoever and pain was minimal, the heeling process was so so smooth too. One year on and I am still on cloud nine, the scars are basically non existent and my new breasts are PERFECT. I’m not over exaggerating when I say Mr Wilson has changed my life, he really has done just that, and I will be forever grateful. Will recommend Mr Wilson over and over again to anyone wanting ANY surgery with him. He is incredible!
