Mastopexy (Breast Lift)

Various factors such as pregnancy, lactation, the weight of gravity and chronological aging, cause the skin to lose elasticity and the breasts tend to fall (mammary ptosis). Mastopexy or breast lift is a surgical technique whose purpose is to reshape and lift the sagging breast. When a loss or low breast volume is added, a prosthesis can be placed. There are different techniques, si it is necessary to evaluate the tone of the skin as well as the size and shape of the breast to advise what is most suitable for each patient.  

The patient should rest and avoid any kind of effort for at least 48-72 hours. During the first postoperative visit, it will be verified that everything is going normally and the band-aids that cover the scars will be changed. In the second visit, after 10 days, the intradermal sutures will be removed. 

In some cases, there is a fluctuation in the sensitivity of the nipple that is usually transient.  Scars are permanent, but if you follow your plastic surgeon's advice regarding pre-and postoperative care, they will become much less noticeable over time. If due to a healing problem, the scars become wide and bulky, a correction under local anesthesia from 6 months onwards would be advisable. The effects of mastopexy are not eternal, so factors such as new pregnancies, breastfeeding, weight changes, and chronological aging can accelerate the fall of the breast.
