PLASTIC SURGEON ALBERTO AREVALO / MASTOPEXY
Mastopexy, commonly known as a breast lift, is a surgical procedure aimed at lifting and reshaping the breasts to restore their youthful appearance. This procedure is ideal for women whose breasts have lost their shape and firmness due to factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, or natural aging.
Unlike breast augmentation, mastopexy does not necessarily involve the placement of implants to increase breast size, although it can be combined with implants in some cases to enhance both shape and volume. In mastopexy, excess skin is removed, and breast tissue is restructured to lift the breasts. The areola and nipple are also repositioned to a more youthful height.

It is important to note that, although the results are immediately visible, the resulting scars from the surgery are permanent, though they usually fade well over time. The incisions can vary depending on the specific case and the surgeon’s preferences; the most common include an incision around the areola, a vertical incision from the areola to the breast fold, and a horizontal incision along the breast fold.
Mastopexy is typically performed under general anesthesia, and the recovery process varies from one patient to another, but generally includes a period of rest, limitation of physical activity, and the use of a special breast support for several weeks.
The ultimate goal of mastopexy is not only to improve the aesthetic appearance of the breasts but also to contribute to the patient’s emotional well-being and self-esteem. This procedure can have a significant impact on the way women view and feel about their bodies, providing a younger, firmer breast contour.
