Mastopexy combined with augmentations is considered to be a technically advanced and difficult procedure; thus, many surgeons recommend doing this procedure in two separate stages to minimize the risk for complications. A one-stage procedure has, however, several advantages. Even if one-stage mastopexy augmentations are more technically demanding to perform and even if a slightly increased risk for healing problems exists, these procedures can be performed safely if the planning and surgical technique are accurate. The planning and surgical technique described in this article have been used by the author for the past 10 years, with moderate modification in the twenty-first century, leading to a predictable outcome with a low degree of reoperations and complications. This article describes in detail the surgical technique and planning.
