During a period of 8 years, 384 female patients underwent simultaneous surgery for placement of implants and mastopexy. The surgical techniques used were selected according to the characteristics of each particular case. The determining variables in the selection were ptosis of the nipple–areola complex (NAC) and distance from the NAC to the inframammary fold. Only three surgical techniques were used: NAC lifting (n = 30), periareolar pexy (n = 196), and inverted T pexy (n = 158). The degree of… Expand
The Subtleties of Success in Simultaneous Augmentation-Mastopexy
TLDR
The majority of complications in this series comparing simultaneous augmentation-mastopexy to isolated augmentation were minor, and the authors feel the combined procedure can safely be part of every plastic surgeon’s practice. Expand
Augmentation Mastopexy: Maximal Reduction and Stable Implant Coverage Using Four Flaps
TLDR
The results demonstrated a low complication rate and low reoperation rate with this four-flap technique for implant coverage in maximum reduction mastopexy with prosthesis and make us confident in recommending this technique for grade II and grade III ptosis. Expand
A review of 100 consecutive secondary augmentation/mastopexies.
TLDR
The study indicates that the procedure is safe and has complication and revision rates comparable to primary augmentation/mastopexy. Expand
Simultaneous Augmentation Mastopexy: A Technique for Maximum En Bloc Skin Resection Using the Inverted-T Pattern Regardless of Implant Size, Asymmetry, or Ptosis
TLDR
Symmetry is more easily achieved with this approach regardless of the implant size used or the amount of skin to be resected, and this technique minimizes the chance of tissue necrosis from devascularized skin edges. Expand
Combined Mastopexy and Augmentation with Autologous Fat Grafting: First Results with Lipopexy
TLDR
This technique allows the surgeon to distribute the desired fat volume along the breasts, avoids implants, and displayed stable results, and is considered a valuable and safe alternative to mastopexy and mild to moderate breast volume augmentation. Expand
All Seasons Vertical Augmentation Mastopexy: A Simple Algorithm, Clinical Experience, and Patient-reported Outcomes

  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery. Global open
  • 2016
TLDR
A simple algorithm may be used to guide treatment in women who desire correction of ptosis and upper pole fullness and an "all seasons" vertical augmentation mastopexy is safe and widely applicable. Expand
The Balcony Technique of Breast Augmentation and Inverted-T Mastopexy With an Inferior Dermoglandular Flap.
TLDR
The results of this long-term analysis demonstrate that the balcony technique of augmentation-mastopexy is suitable for patients with breast ptosis and hypoplasia. Expand
Rotation Mastopexy: An Anatomical Approach
TLDR
A new technique has been created with regard to a detailed knowledge of the breast gland’s vascular anatomy and the lower breast gland is raised as a large vascularized flap and rotated into a pocket beneath the upper pole. Expand
Mastopexy with Implant Inclusion
TLDR
This work uses Regnault’s classification (mild, moderate, severe, and pseudoptosis), which is the most known and used for breast ptosis, to describe the treatment of Mastopexy with implant. Expand
Prospective Comparative Clinical Evaluation of 784 Consecutive Cases of Breast Augmentation and Vertical Mammaplasty, Performed Individually and in Combination

Background: Despite the growing popularity of breast lift surgery, no published study prospectively evaluates mastopexy and augmentation/mastopexy. Several investigators suggest an inordinate risk inExpand

Revision Augmentation Mastopexy: Indications, Operations, and Outcomes
TLDR
An 8-year retrospective review was undertaken of all patients undergoing revision of a previous augmentation/mastopexy in the senior author’s practice, finding that revision augmentation mastopExy is not an uncommon procedure, occurring half as often as primary augmentation/. Expand
One-Stage Augmentation Combined with Mastopexy: Aesthetic Results and Patient Satisfaction
TLDR
Although the overall results of one-stage breast augmentation and mastopexy are good, and the patients generally are satisfied, this study raises the question whether staging the surgery by performing the mastopExy first may not yield significantly better results than the combined simultaneous procedure. Expand
Periareolar mastopexy with mammary implants
TLDR
This technique does not allow great elevation of the areola, but it is good and safe for correcting minor to moderate ptosis combined with volume augmentation, and can be replaced correctly by drawing the periareolar circle and ellipse in eccentric forms. Expand
Vertical Mastopexy with Expansion Augmentation
TLDR
This paper presents a technique combining the vertical mastopexy, a superior nipple-areolar pedicle, and the use of the Spectrum postoperatively-adjustable implant which can simplify the procedure and minimize complications related to implant tension. Expand
Augmentation/Mastopexy: “Surgeon, Beware”
  • S. Spear
  • Medicine
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery
  • 2006
TLDR
This editorial will deal not with how to perform combined augmentation and mastopexy but why it is a particularly tricky operation that is prone to unhappy outcomes. Expand
Simultaneous Breast Augmentation and Lift
TLDR
Patients who have any degree of ptosis may benefit from some lifting of the nipple areola complex if the nipple is not in the central portion of the general contour of the breast mound when seen in the upright position. Expand
A new periareolar mammaplasty: The “round block” technique
TLDR
The “round block” acts as a keystone supporting the mammary cone and allows the scar to go up to the periareolar circle which is in itself generally inconspicuous. Expand
The augmentation-reduction mammaplasty.
TLDR
A technique of augmentation mammaplasty with simultaneous treatment of glandular ptosis for those with small and ptotic breasts, where treatment by a single procedure would not suffice to give an esthetically proportioned breast. Expand
Crescent Mastopexy and Augmentation
TLDR
A group of patients with a lesser degree of moderate breast ptosis whose ptosis correction is not adequately improved by augmentation alone but requires some elevation of the nipple-areola complex is defined, and the crescent excision mastopexy is selected to provide additional needed lift. Expand
Current Preferences for Breast Reduction Techniques: A Survey of Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons 2002
TLDR
The majority of surgeons reported that they did not anticipate changing their practices to accommodate advances in limited incision techniques; however, 89 percent reported that the new limited incison techniques and liposuction are trends that are here to stay. Expand
