What is a Mastopexy?

Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure whose purpose is to elevate the breasts, regain their shape and projection.

During breast lift surgery, it is possible to modify its size and combine it with implant placement, depending on the aesthetic needs of each patient. It consists of repositioning the breasts and the areola-nipple complexes to reverse the fall caused by breastfeeding, weight changes and aging. The technique is chosen according to the degree of sagging of the breasts and the anatomical characteristics of the patient.

  • Average length: 2-3 hours
  • Most common anesthesia: Regional or general
  • Type of hospitalization: One night in hospital
  • Average recovery time: 2-3 weeks
