What is mastopexy?

Mastopexy, also known as breast lift, is performed to improve the shape and firmness of the breasts. During the procedure, the surgeon removes excess skin, repositions the breast tissue and, in some cases, reduces the size of the areola. 

Mastopexy can be combined with other breast augmentation or reduction surgeries depending on the patient’s needs. At MDE Care we have experienced surgeons to determine the best option for your individual aesthetic goals.

Who should undergo this type of procedure?

Mastopexy is suitable for people with sagging breasts due to factors such as aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss or genetics. Patients who wish to lift and reshape their breasts to improve their appearance and self-esteem may consider this procedure. 

It is important that candidates are in good health and have realistic expectations about the results. The experienced plastic surgeon is the one who evaluates each case individually and recommends mastopexy as a suitable option for those who wish to improve the shape and firmness of their breasts.

What is the mastopexy procedure in Medellin like?

During mastopexy, incisions are made around the areola and, in some cases, on the underside of the breast. The surgeon removes excess skin, repositions the breast tissue and adjusts the areola as needed. The incisions are then closed with sutures. 

In some cases, it may be combined with a breast reduction or augmentation. The length of time and specific technique may vary depending on the patient’s individual needs. The procedure employs a variety of surgical techniques depending on the needs of each patient.

Techniques used in mastopexy

A variety of techniques are used to perform the mastopexy procedure, depending on the needs and requirements of each patient. Among the techniques we can find:

It involves making a single incision around the areola. Through this incision, excess skin is removed and the breast tissue is reshaped to lift sagging breasts. This technique is suitable for mild cases of breast ptosis and leaves a discreet scar at the edge of the areola. 

It is a popular choice for patients with moderate ptosis and allows for satisfactory aesthetic results with a generally faster recovery compared to other more invasive techniques.

The inverted “T” technique is an option in mastopexy for more severe breast ptosis. It involves incisions around the areola, vertically downward from the areola to the breast sulcus, and horizontally along the breast sulcus. 

This technique allows for a more significant removal of excess skin and a more dramatic breast lift. Although it may leave a more visible scar than other techniques, it provides satisfactory results for patients with pronounced ptosis, restoring shape and firmness to the breasts with improved contour.

In the inverted “L” technique, incisions are made around the areola and vertically downward from the areola to the breast sulcus. Unlike the inverted “T” technique, it does not include a horizontal incision along the breast sulcus. 

This technique is suitable for cases of moderate to severe ptosis and allows for a significant breast lift with less extensive scarring compared to the “T” technique. It provides satisfactory aesthetic results by reshaping the breasts and restoring their natural shape.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Mastopexy Procedure

Risks and complications associated with mastopexy may include infection, excessive bleeding, changes in nipple sensation, abnormal scarring, breast asymmetry, loss of ability to breastfeed, and the possibility of needing revision surgery. It is important to discuss these risks with the plastic surgeon during the preoperative consultation and to carefully follow all postoperative instructions to minimize any risks and optimize the results of the surgery.

Recovery after mastopexy involves rest and care of the incisions. You may experience discomfort, swelling and bruising, which usually subsides in the first few weeks. It is recommended to wear a special bra for several weeks to provide additional support, avoid strenuous physical activity and heavy lifting for at least six weeks. Normal activities can be resumed gradually as directed by the plastic surgeon.


The duration of mastopexy results varies depending on several factors, such as skin quality, body weight, aging and hormonal changes. Maintaining a stable weight and wearing a supportive bra can help prolong results. While mastopexy does not stop the aging process, the breasts will still look firmer and lifted compared to before surgery.

Common scars include around the areola, vertically from the areola to the breast crease, and possibly horizontally along the breast crease in more extensive techniques. These scars tend to fade over time, but their final appearance depends on factors such as genetics, skin care and postoperative instructions. The plastic surgeon can provide specific recommendations to minimize scar visibility and optimize aesthetic results.

The need to combine mastopexy with other cosmetic surgeries, such as breast reduction or augmentation, depends on the individual needs and goals of each patient. In some cases, mastopexy may be combined with breast reduction to remove excess breast tissue and lift sagging breasts. Mastopexy can also be combined with breast augmentation to restore firmness and volume to the breasts.

Mastopexy focuses on lifting and reshaping sagging breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning breast tissue to improve shape and firmness. On the other hand, breast augmentation surgery seeks to increase the volume and fullness of the breasts by inserting breast implants. While mastopexy treats breast ptosis, breast augmentation focuses on improving the size and projection of the breasts.

What our clients say

My daughter has received excellent care from Dr. Juan Nicolas. It was very important to have a pediatric dentist from the early years to reduce the natural fears that children have to dentistry and to generate in my daughter a confidence in her doctor. Also that as parents we can be informed every step of the way
Juan David Mejía
“Our deepest thanks to Dr. Nicolás, who returned (literally) the smile to our daughter Violeta. In summary: our daughter had teeth (especially the upper ones) with cavities, from 4 years old they began to depigment and gradually turned black until they almost seemed toothless. We went to many places but none of them gave us a solution, they just said that it was necessary to operate. As a last option, friends whom we hold in high regard recommended Dr. Nicolás, and we decided to start treatment with him. He was always honest with us. Treatment and commitment were needed, but thanks to this, today my daughter, who is now 7 years old, can smile without shame, feels good, and is with her teeth very healthy. We truly thank the doctor and recommend him 1000% 🥰”
