Breast lift


Breast liftPeople who want to know about the cosmetic surgery of breast lift in Malaga and the Costa del Sol, can receive basic information on this website of Dr. Ruiz Ruiz, Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon.


The breast lift, also called a mastopexia, is a plastic surgical procedure which consists of lifting and improving the shape of the breasts that have drooped due to the effects of time or due to pregnancy or breastfeeding because the skin loses elasticity and the breasts lose their shape and drop (breast ptosis). If the breast, as well as having sagged, has little volume, an implant can also be inserted.

Breast Lift: how is it done?

Dr. Ruiz Ruiz, plastic and cosmetic surgeon, perfoms the mastopexia in an operating theatre, in a clinic or hospital in Malaga or the Costa del Sol under general anesthetic, the patient is asleep during the breast lift operation. Hospital admission is required, with the patient usually discharged the following day. The mastopexia procedure lasts approximately an hour and a half to three and a half hours. The incisions are made in an area of the breast in a part of the skin that is then removed and which will place the nipple (areola) in their new lifted position.

Sutures are inserted around the nipple(areola), in a vertical downward line from the nipple (areola) and along the crease under the breast. In other cases, when the breast is small and not sagging too much, the incision is made around the nipple (areola). It may be necessary to insert an implant under the breast tissue or the pectoral muscle in breasts with little volume.

Recovery and breast lift Results

After mastopexia surgery it is normal to feel tired for a few days, but you can continue with everyday life after two days. The bandage will be removed after a few days, and a special bra should then be worn. The stitches are removed after between 7 and 14 days; the bruising will not disappear completely until after 3 to 6 weeks.

The patient may return to work after a few days, depending on the type of activity.

A breast lift (mastopexia) leaves permanent and visible scars, although they can be hidden under the bra or bikini. Scarring problems are more common amongst smokers.

However, remember that each mastopexia case and each patient may vary, and therefore this information should be taken purely as a general guide and explanation. It should not be considered a replacement of the detailed information that the plastic and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Ruiz Ruiz will provide during the personal consultation and evaluation with her.
