Mastopexy or breast lift is a surgery that allows the correction of breast ptosis and consists of the removal of excess skin. The technique can be combined with the placement of a prosthesis. As in reduction mammoplasty, the vertical technique or the “T” technique can be performed. In the postoperative period, the use of a specific bra is also essential.
The “fall” of the breasts, known as breast ptosis, is generally associated with the distension of the breasts during pregnancy, significant weight loss and aging.
