The authors describe the association of mastopexy and inclusion of silicone implants in 17 patients. The major indication is for hypoplastic breasts with slight or moderate ptoses, and adequate skin texture. The authors describe the surgical technique emphasizing access routes. They review the advantages and disadvantages of the association and conclude that although periareolar mastopexy scar retouching may be necessary, results are generally gratifying.
