The surgical techniques associated with mastopexy and mastopexy augmentation have continued to evolve. Traditional mastopexy techniques have included periareolar, circumvertical, and inverted-T patterns; however, adjuncts to these have included the use of various surgical mesh materials, implants, and fat grafting. This evidence-based article reviews how the techniques of mastopexy and augmentation mastopexy have evolved to best address patient goals and provide a favorable cosmetic outcome.
After viewing this course, the participant should be able to:
- Describe surgical techniques associated with mastopexy and mastopexy augmentation.
- Understand the evolution of mastopexy and augmentation mastopexy.
- Address patient goals.
- Achieve a favorable cosmetic outcome.
