Breast Lift is performed to reshape and to lift a woman’s breasts which have sagged over the years. There are many different reasons for sagging breasts: age, breast feeding, weight loss, hormonal changes and the general skin condition are contributing factors. In the case of sagging breasts, the skin envelope has become too large in relation to the remaining glandular breast tissue, the breast are losing their fullness and their round shape, they become larger and flatter.
Mastopexy corrects this problem by removing excess skin, remodeling the glandular breast tissue and lifting the position of the nipple-areola-complex.
Depending on the extent of sagging, different surgical techniques are used, starting in cases of minor sagging with a incision only around the areola (benelli-Lift), in cases of moderate ptosis this incision is combined with a vertical cut from the areola down to the breast fold, up to using a Inverse T-Cut (Anchor) Incision in cases of severe sagging.
Breast Lift or Mastopexy operation takes between 2-3 hours, depending on the technique, and can be performed under twilight sedation combined with local anesthesia or general anesthesia. In some cases, the up-lift can be combined with implants to enlarge the breasts at the same time, Dr Kaye from Ocean Clinic Marbella will discuss your case with you and recommend the technique which fits best to your individual needs.
In this HD video Dr Kaye performs an Augmentation Mastopexy with Silicone implants. The patient had breast implants and a periareolar Mastopexy 8 years before and is presenting bottoming-out and bilateral sagging. To correct asymmetry of fullness in the medials quadrant and to shape the axilla bilateral liposuction of axilla is performed and fat transfer to the inner quadrants of the breasts.
This Augmentation Mastopexy surgery was performed in July 2014 and took place at the Ocean Clinic 's state of the art operating theatre in Marbella.
That really depends on how ptotic (sagging) your breasts are. For a small lift the scars will be around the Areola and virtually invisible once healed. For a more extensive lift the scar may need to extend vertically from the areola to the breast crease, and occasionally along the breast crease also. If necessary, implants can be inserted at the same time to replace lost volume.
Depending on skin quality, lifestyle, sun exposure etc, the results will last for 5-8 years.
At Ocean Clinic Marbella the surgery takes between 2-4 hours.
The first 48 hours can be uncomfortable, but bearable if well managed with pain relief.
You can normally resume your usual activities after 2 weeks.

A breast lift, or mastopexy, can help restore a firmer, shapelier breast, which will improve body contours and give the breasts a perky, youthful appearance. A dramatic difference in the shape and position of the breasts immediately following the procedure. During a breast lift procedure, loose, excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is tightened. As a result, the overall shape of the breasts is improved, and they are lifted to a new, more upright position.
Breast augmentation alone cannot restore the shape of the breasts. For those women who would like to increase the size of their breasts as well as restore a firm, more upright position, a breast augmentation in combination with a breast lift can improve body contours and revitalize their appearance. In combination, breast implants and a breast lift result in total rejuvenation, not only increasing the size of the breast, but restoring a firmer, perkier appearance as well.
