Breast lift surgery in Malaga

Known as mastopexy. Over the years, factors like weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding can lead to loss of shape and firmness, resulting in breast sagging or what is known as breast ptosis. This breast lift surgery can be performed with or without implants. The choice between these techniques depends on the breast’s shape and the patient’s expectations.

If the breast has lost volume, it’s advisable to also use implants to enhance the breast and give it a more consistent shape. The goal is not only breast lift but also improvement in shape. Depending on the amount of excess skin, the scar can range from a line around the areola to a vertical or inverted T shape. In the initial consultation, Dr. Javier Collado will advise you on the technique that best suits your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any woman who is dissatisfied with the shape, position, or size of her breasts is a candidate for improvement, which may involve mastopexy. Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the dark skin surrounding the nipple, as many women complain of overly large areolas.

Whenever volume and tissue quality allow, it’s preferable to perform a mastopexy without implants. This way, the patient can enjoy a definitive result for life without needing to undergo implant replacement surgery.

The procedure is safe as it’s performed in an appropriate hospital setting, taking all necessary precautions. It’s carried out under general anesthesia, which is the safest form for undergoing surgery. Moreover, no vital organs or major blood vessels are involved, making complications highly unlikely.

First, it will be determined whether implants will be used or not. Second, the surgical design for the patient’s breasts will be made. To do this, the patient needs to be in an upright position. This is crucial as it guides the surgeon throughout the procedure when the patient is lying down. The design should indicate two crucial factors in this surgery: the new position of the areola-nipple complex and the amount of skin that needs to be removed. In cases involving implants, the first step is placing the implant, followed by the removal of excess skin as if tailoring the skin to fit the implant.
