Over the years, factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and breastfeeding generate changes in the shape and consistency of breasts. As the skin loses elasticity and the breast tissue undergoes structural changes, changes occur in the shape of breasts, which reach a lower position, with a lesser projection of the mammary base.
Mastopexy, also called breast lift, removes excess skin from the lower part and lifts breast structures, reshaping and firming the breasts.
The areolas are repositioned in a higher position and can also be resized, which can make them more delicate. There are several techniques for breast lift, and the scars resulting from the surgery may be larger or smaller, depending on each case. If the breasts are small or have lost much volume, silicone breast implants can be used in conjunction with this surgery to increase the contents and allow even more satisfactory results with a higher projection of the mammary base.
