A mastopexy, also known as breast lift, is a surgery that allows the breast tissues to be repositioned, seeking to elevate and project the breasts, reversing the natural sagging of breasts. The areola and sagging skin are repositioned until the breasts reach their original position, which ensures symmetry. The procedure is not intended to increase or decrease the size of the breasts, but to treat excess sagging. But it is common, in some cases, the surgery to be performed with silicone breast implant. This happens when there are empty spaces in the breast that need to be filled by the silicone, so that it is possible to restore its firmness and support to the area.
The procedure can be performed under local, epidural or general anesthesia – for each case, a specific type of anesthesia is indicated.
How is Mastopexy performed?
Mastopexy is performed as follows: after the application of anesthesia, in cases where the silicone implant is not necessary, the surgery continues with the removal of excess skin and the repositioning of the breast tissue to give what we call a new contour to the breasts. The next step is the incisions, which are usually performed around the nipple region, and may even extend in a vertical line, leaving the areola towards the base of the breast. The procedure lasts between 1h30 and 4 hours.
Like any surgical procedure, Mastopexy also has adverse effects. Unfavorable healing of the breast, bleeding and hematoma formation, temporary change in breast or nipple sensation, asymmetrical breasts and breasts with irregular contour and shape may occur. Among the risks of surgery, there is the possibility of allergies to the dressing material, medications, necrosis of adipose tissue and accumulation of fluid at the surgical site, among others.
It is recommended that the interested person talks with the doctor who will perform the procedure to know, in short, what are the risks and possible adverse effects after the surgery. Two factors can help to avoid these side effects: choosing a well-qualified professional (it is essential that the doctor is a plastic surgeon member of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery) and post-surgical care. Patients who undergo the procedure are given a series of recommendations to follow for a certain period of time and it is extremely important that all rules are respected until the doctor gives permission to suspend the recovery treatment.
The final results of Mastopexy appear over several months. After a year, it is possible to clearly observe the final results.
