Age, weight loss, pregnancy and breastfeeding are reasons that have an effect on a woman’s chest. This sagging, sagging or fall usually occurs over the years in medium or large breasts. Although, it can also occur after being pregnant, having breastfed or lost weight. The ideal intervention to reposition the breasts in their optimal place is the mastopexy, or breast lift , surgery that we perform to elevate the breasts in case they have been lifted (breast ptosis).
Breast ptosis occurs mainly for two reasons: distention of the skin and soft tissues, and a loss of volume.
This surgery mentioned above, breast lift or mastopexy , is responsible for radically improving the silhouette and relief of the breasts, rejuvenating them, and giving them the lost volume and cleavage. But, in addition, it is a surgical technique in which the woman recovers security and self-esteem.
Everything mentioned above has led her to become one of the most performed breast surgeries.
Types of breast lift or mastopexy
There are different types of breast lift, depending on the needs of the patient. In the event that the loss of volume is the cause of breast ptosis , mastopexy with prostheses would be used, in addition to the elevation that is always necessary. In this situation, the implant is something that must be spoken and agreed between the patient and the surgeon, to achieve a natural result but in accordance with the patient’s expectations.
It is important to understand that there is no perfect measure, because beauty is subjective for each person and not a matter of mathematics, so this choice is deeply, very personal.
In the case that the breasts are already large in themselves, that is, there is no loss of volume, and they have simply suffered a fall, it would only be necessary to perform breast lift or mastopexy.
Operation and recovery
How long the surgery lasts depends a lot on each case, but usually usually lasts between 2 and 4 hours. It is a painless and ambulatory intervention, which allows a speedy recovery of the patient , with an incorporation into working life between 5 and 7 days later.
As for the postoperative period, it is a simple process since it is a surgery that does not hurt. It will be necessary to wear a bandage for a few days and a sports bra for a month. It is recommended not to make sudden movements with the arms or take a lot of weight, basically try to minimize efforts.
What chest surgery do I need?
We have already explained what is the breast lift or mastopexy, and the types of techniques that exist, but many still have doubts about what type of breast intervention they need. This should always be a decision made between patient and doctor, although in our clinics we will always recommend a natural option that is in harmony with the body of each patient.
In the case of wanting, or needing, a breast augmentation, it is because:
- You are looking to improve the volume and shape of your breasts
- There has been no sagging or falling breast
What you are looking for is a mastopexy in the event that:
- Looking to improve the shape of your breasts
- There is a breast sagging
- Accounts with breast volume
And you need a chest lift with prostheses when:
- You need to improve the shape of your breasts
- There has been a breast sagging
- You do not have the necessary breast volume
