Breast lifting or mastoplexy is a surgical procedure which lifts or improves the look of drooping breasts, whether it be for natural causes or over time, pregnancy or after large weight losses. In the case of breasts, in addition to drooping, they may have lost volume and so a prosthesis can be fitted. The size of the areola can also be reduced as part of this technique if it is required.
Corrects the shape
Rejuvenates the breasts
Makes the body more aesthetic
Mastopexy or breast lifting takes 2-3 hours and is carried out via a number of incisions which become less visible over time. Sometimes, it may be necessary to place a prosthesis under the breast skin or the pectoral muscle in smaller breasts. A compression bandage or a special bra is worn after the procedure to promote recovery.
This procedure requires at least one night in hospital and it is carried out under general anaesthetic.
Type of procedure: surgical.
Length of procedure: approximately 2-3 hours.
Hospitalisation: 1-2 nights.
Recovery: 5-7 days.
Immediately after the operation, the patient may notice a loss of nipple sensitivity which normally improves little by little. It is also normal for the patient to feel pain and discomfort for the first few weeks but this can be controlled using the prescribed medication.
The patient can return to work a week after the intervention but it will depend on the case and the work they do.
Scarring is less visible after time
It is a very similar procedure to a breast reduction and is carried out in cases where the breast has drooped considerably. It is a routine operation and very safe as long as you are in the hands of a good surgeon, but the patient should always be assessed and fully informed in the consultation.
