Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Tiffany McCormack, is a frequent contributor to esteemed beauty publication NewBeauty®, which explores the latest trends in cosmetic treatments and aesthetic medicine. As a consultant to the magazine on subjects relating to plastic surgery, Dr. McCormack was recently featured in their latest issue discussing the breast augmentation mastopexy (BAM) procedure — colloquially known as a “breast lift with implants.”
A breast lift with implants is a combination treatment plan featuring two of the most popular breast surgeries available: breast augmentation and mastopexy. The goal of this treatment option is to add volume to the breasts via implants, while simultaneously lifting and reshaping ptotic (drooping) breast tissue. BAM is often completed in one surgery, but certain patients may require two separate procedures to achieve the best quality of results. Speaking to the inherent difficulty of the joint treatment plan, Dr. McCormack explains, “A breast lift with implants is a more complicated surgery than standalone implants or a standalone lift. On one hand, you are adding volume with an implant. On the other hand, you are removing tissue to then close around the additional volume.”
That said, Dr. McCormack agrees that the combination surgery is unsurpassed in the extent of rejuvenation possible. “I find that a breast lift with implants can be a very satisfying procedure, in that volume is restored and breast tissue can be shaped around that volume in a better position on the chest.” She offers a breast lift with implants at our renowned practice near Reno and Lake Tahoe for individuals who want to improve telltale signs of aging breasts, which include flat contours (due to lost volume) and a sagging appearance.
