The mastopexy with prosthesis is an intervention that serves to remodel and raise the breasts. With this technique we implant a round or anatomical prosthesis to recover volume or shape, achieving a better result. This is an ideal solution for women who want to restore the appearance of their breasts. This will make them look higher and firmer.
Why are the breasts sagging?
The size of the mammary gland, the amount of fat and especially the quality of the skin, are the main factors influencing the sagging or drooping of the breasts. If a woman has thin and weak skin, it is more likely to sag and the breast will descend over time. Stretch marks are also common in this type of patient if she experiences significant gains and weight loss.
Both lifestyle and significant weight changes can accelerate the need for breast lift. Women with bad habits or unhealthy eating habits can put on weight or impair the quality of their tissues. In the case of pregnancy and lactation, it is a period where the size and weight of the mammary glands increases, once completed we can have deflated and sagging breasts.
Mastopexy with prosthesis for breast lift
Breast lift with prosthesis is one of the most difficult cosmetic breast surgeries, so it is essential to choose a good Plastic Surgeon. Its complexity lies in the diagnosis, choice of breast prostheses and the surgical technique itself.
The diagnosis of a breast ptosis is very important, in the consultation aspects such as the degree of sagging or the quality of the tissues are evaluated. A correct evaluation is essential in planning the surgery and choosing the right breast prosthesis. A misdiagnosis can lead to an unsatisfactory result for the patient and may even force her to undergo a second operation.
With this surgical technique we can modify the position and size of the mammary gland, the areolas and the amount of fat. We will also fill the upper pole with a prosthesis and may need to remove skin, which could help some stretch marks disappear. However, the less skin we need to remove, the smaller the resulting scar.
It is a complex procedure, but one that allows you to achieve more beautiful breasts in their place. In the hands of a good Plastic Surgeon it is a very effective and safe procedure that allows you to look your best for many years.
