Mastopexy or breast lift

Breast lift or mastopexy is a surgical technique whose main objective is to raise and improve the sagging breast shape. Over the years, the majority of women suffer from sagging breast or breast ptosis due to gravity, loss of skin elasticity and breast shape variation, especially during pregnancy or weight changes.

How is breast lift or mastopexy surgery performed?

According to the nipple and the areola position, there are three types of ptosis: advanced, moderate and mild. The breast ptosis degree will determine the type of surgery.

For a slight breast sagging which does not reach the ptosis level, it would be appropriated a high volume mammary prostheses  to raise the breast, consequently, for an optimal and satisfactory result it should be performed a simple breast augmentation with high volume prostheses + info.

If the ptosis degree is mild, it may be enough with a periareolar or a semi-periareolar mastopexy. When the ptosis degree is advanced-moderated, it would be appropriated an ‘inverted T’ mastopexy. In this cases, Dr. Joaquín Pérez-Guisado Rosa will raise and reposition your breast, he will mobilise and remodelate the mammary tissue, removing the excess skin in the breast lower section. The resulting scars will be located in the periareolar area around the areola; while in ‘inverted T’, we will have a horizontal scar in the mammary fold level, a second scar around the areola and a third scar from the areola to the mammary fold.

In women who wish to raise, fill and/or augment their breast size, it could be combined both the breast lift technique and breast augmentation with mammary prostheses, known as ‘inverted T’ mastopexy with prostheses.

‘Inverted T’ mastopexy with/without prostheses will be performed under general anaesthesia with previous tests carried out by our anaesthetists and a 24 hours hospitalisation.  The surgery will last from 3 to 5 hours, depending on the breast complexity.
