Mastopexy Alicante

Breast lift in Alicante

A mastopexy or breast lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that consists of lifting the breasts, eliminating the flaccidity of the breasts and offering a more profiled and robust appearance.
A surgical procedure aimed at the physical and aesthetic improvement of women, resulting in breasts with a youthful and turgid appearance.
Some of the most common reasons for deciding to undergo such an operation are:
  • Sagging breasts due to the passage of time.
  • Sagging breasts due to pregnancy.
  • Natural or hereditary sagging breasts.
  • Sagging breasts due to sudden weight gain or loss.
  • Malformations such as tuberous breasts: widely spaced breasts in a tubular shape with a certain lack of development in the lower area.

This operation resituates the breast with or without the aid of breast prostheses, depending on the amount of breast tissue and the preferences of the patient.

Mastopexy is one of the most common and sought-after cosmetic surgery operations because of its positive impact on patients.

This will depend on whether or not the patient’s breast has enough fullness to be reshaped without the use of a prosthesis. On the other hand, it is only through a prosthesis that greater breast volume can be achieved, so that, once the area has been assessed and depending on what the patient really wants, an implant can be applied so that, in addition to the elevation, the breasts achieve a more bulky and vigorous shape and presence.

In approximately three weeks.

If you smoke, stop smoking about one month beforehand. The week before surgery, it will also be necessary to eliminate foods high in vitamin E and aspirin intake. It is also a good idea for the patient to start washing the area with antiseptic soap a few days beforehand and to fast the day of the operation at least 8 hours beforehand.
