Dr Craig Layt Publishes Article Through Elsevier/Science Direct on Breast Augmentation-Mastopexy

Dr-CraigWe are very pleased to announce that our esteemed plastic surgeon and founder of The Layt Clinic, Dr Craig Layt, was recently invited to write an article for Clinics in Plastic Surgery which has been published through Elsevier and Science Direct. These reputable periodicals bring some of the latest science and health information to millions of professionals around the world. Dr Layt wrote an article entitled: “Augmentation Mastopexy: Planning and Performance for Predictability: Management of Complications,” which covers numerous aspects of a procedure that combines the placement of breast implants with breast lift surgery to produce comprehensive breast enhancement.

Augmentation-Mastopexy can be an ideal procedure for women who would like to add volume to the breasts and address sagging skin and a “drooping” breast appearance, which is medically known as breast ptosis. While some patients undergo this procedure in a series of staged appointments, an augmentation-mastopexy can also be performed in a single procedure, allowing individuals to experience only one recovery period. In the article, Dr Layt discusses the reasons why some patients are not ideally suited to a single-stage augmentation-mastopexy, while many others may be very good candidates for having both steps of the procedure safely performed at the same time. He also explains that, with exceptional planning and surgical techniques, the procedure can provide excellent long-term results.
