Mastopexy is among the most requested surgeries by women between the ages of 25 and 50 with an active sexual life. There is more than one classification of breast ptosis, however, the most effective diagnostic measure is the descent of the nipples beyond the imaginary transverse line that joins the midpoint of each arm.
Correction of ptosis is not achieved only with the placement of breast prostheses, but it usually requires another complementary procedure. The most frequent error is trying to correct the ptosis with the placement of implants that are larger than appropriate, resulting in an exaltation of the defect and an apparent obesity of the patient, as well as the recurrence of the pathology.
This technique shortens operative time, minimizes scarring and offers better long-term results. It also allows the correction of other types of problems such as tuberous breasts, breast asymmetry and virginal breast hypertrophy.
In addition, removing the upper breast quadrants reduces the probability, given the age of our patients, of the fearsome breast carcinoma, opening up the possibility, when the case so requires due to a family history, to practice prophylactic surgery with predictable results due to its safety, versatility and ease of execution.
Goals of Mastopexy surgery are:
- Achieve greater turgor to the breasts.
- Decrease the transverse diameter of both breasts.
- Produce an antero-superior projection of the breast instead of volume.
- Decrease size and weight, and above all.
- Place the nipple in its ideal position and without recurrence. For all this, it is important that when an implant is required, it is of the smallest diameter possible.
