Breast Uplift (Mastopexy) Spain

Mastopexy, or ‘Breast Uplift’ is performed when the breast has adequate volume but it has dropped and the position of the nipple is too low (mammary ptosis). Surgery lasts between 2 and 3 hours and is performed under general anaesthesia.

Round Block Breast Uplift

This is a method of Breast Uplift that does not involve the classic ‘lollipop’ scar – the incisions are only made around the areola. It can be offered to patients who do not have very pronounced sagging of the breast tissue.

Mastopexy not only gives uplift to the nipple and the breast but also achieves a new shape which is more round and youthful looking. In those cases where the sagging is not particularly severe, the resulting scar will be placed around the margin of the areola, whereas in those cases of more accentuated sagging, we need to add a vertical scar and in some cases a short horizontal one in the fold. How long the results lasts depends on the elasticity of the patient’s tissue/skin.

After Breast Uplift surgery the patient will need to rest for a week or so, but will gradually go back to normal activities after 3 to 4 weeks.

Doctor’s Recommendations

If you are in the process of losing weight it is preferable that you reach your target weight prior to surgery.

Protect your scars from the sun during the summer following the surgery by using sunblock at all times and covering the scars with a swimsuit.

Help keep your breasts in their uplifted position by using a bra whenever you can.


Mastopexy Surgery will result in permanent and visible scars although the surgeon will endeavor to make them as unnoticeable as possible. In time, the scars should fade to fine white lines.

Mastopexy results tend to be very satisfying although it should be remembered that with successive pregnancies, weight loss and loss of skin elasticity through age, the breasts will droop over time. In many cases, the insertion of a small implant at the same time as mastopexy surgery will improve the fullness of the upper part of the breasts and provide better shape.



Breast feeding, in many cases, is possible after the surgery but this cannot be guaranteed.

In most cases the sensitivity of the nipple is maintained but it cannot be guaranteed.

It is impossible to predict the quality of the scars since the final result is dependent on each individual and the way their skin heals. In some cases they will be hardly visible, yet in other cases they will be more obvious. Of course there are things that can be done in the months following surgery in order to improve them such as avoiding exposing them to the sun.

We can put back the clock but we cannot stop time from ticking and from gravity taking its natural course, so over time the breasts will gradually start to change position, though to what extent will be different in each individual´s case and it will take some years.
