It is a surgical procedure that is usually performed to correct dropped and sagging breasts that may occur especially after the woman has children and the lactation period has passed, however it can also be due to excessive weight loss or by the force of natural gravity, which leads to loss of elasticity of the skin, so that the breast loses its firmness and shape.
When the breast, in addition to falling, has lost or has little volumen, a prothesis can be placed (breast implant). Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola (dark skin around the nipple) when it is very large. Breast augmentation surgery has now become one of the most sought surgeries for patients who wish to have firmer breasts, although breast augmentation surgery (Mammoplasty) might be considered more popular, at the present time mastopexy (breast lift) has been gaining an important place.
In the initial consultation, the surgeon will perform measurements of volume, size and shape of both your breast tissue and your areolas and nipples, as well as the location of them. Based on this, you will be offered the surgical technique that suits your particular case.
The recovery process involves the use of a drain for 24-48 hrs. The initial appearance of the breast will be noticeably improved, but will not reach its best appearance until after 2-3 weeks, at which time much of the inflammation will have subsided and the tissue has been reshaped into its new shape.
The shape and height will look nice during the first few weeks, however, the incisions will take up to 6 months to be aesthetically acceptable and will continue to improve over the course of the first year. In addition the surgeon will indicate special creams and / or special tapes to improve the scars.
