Breast Augmentation

Also known as augmentation mammoplasty, breast augmentation is a type of cosmetic surgery used to enhance the shape, size, and volume of breasts. The procedure typically involves inserting either silicone or saline implants into the breast tissue.

Breast augmentation is one of the most common forms of cosmetic surgery for women who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts and may be suitable for patients who have:

  • Fully developed breasts that are smaller than your desired shape or appearance
  • Breasts that have been adversely impacted by weight loss, pregnancy, or aging
  • Breasts that are disproportionately sized to the body or each other



Also known as a breast lift, a mastopexy is a common type of cosmetic surgery designed to help restore a more natural and youthful appearance to your breasts. This operation differs from a breast augmentation in that there are no implants used.

A mastopexy does not increase the size or volume of your breasts, but instead is intended to raise, firm, and rejuvenate the look of your breasts. A breast mastopexy might be the right procedure for you if your: 

  • Breast tissue has become adversely stretched due to aging, pregnancy, or weight loss
  • Breasts sit lower than you would like
  • Breasts are in a disproportionate position to one another
  • Npples do not project in a desirable fashion


4 Benefits of Combining your Breast Augmentation and Mastopexy Surgeries

Depending on what you want to achieve from your cosmetic breast procedure, you may opt for one of the above techniques. However, more and more women today are opting for a combination operation, called a Breast Augmentation Mastopexy. This combines the increased lift and firmness of a mastopexy, with the size, shape, and volume enhancement of a breast augmentation all into one.

If you are looking to revitalize both the size and appearance of your breasts, a breast augmentation mastopexy might be right for you.


1. It Is as Safe as a Single Operation

Although there is risk associated with every surgical procedure, the medical community is in general consensus that a breast augmentation mastopexy is extremely safe, when carried out by a board-certified plastic surgeon. To some, a combination surgery may seem more risky when compared to a single one, but due to the similar tasks performed in each individual one, combining the two does not increase your risk.

2. There Will Be Less Damage To Your Skin

A breast augmentation mastopexy reduces the number of incisions needed by half than if two surgeries are opted for. Fewer incisions means less harm to your skin, fewer stitches, and less scarring. Your body will thank you for choosing a dual operation, rather than two separate ones, with smoother, healthier-looking skin.

3. Shorter Recovery Period and Lower Costs

If you were to opt for doing the mastopexy and breast augmentation separately, you would have to undergo two separate surgeries and recovery periods. This will increase the time, cost, and pain that you will endure. By combining the two into a breast augmentation mastopexy, you will save thousands of dollars and nearly halve your recovery period.

4. Better Results

When completed together, your surgeon can have more control over the final appearance of your breasts. Your implants will help to fill out the breast and improve the overall appearance so that less lifting or altering will be needed in the future.

The number one priority for us at Alberta Plastic Surgery is to ensure that you are pleased with your results. Combining the two procedures into one increases the likelihood that you will be satisfied with the outcome.
