What is mastopexy or breast lift with prostheses?
This is Dr. Miguel Fernández Calderón’s second most frequent breast surgery procedure. Mastopexy is applied when it is necessary to lift the breast and give it shape, or it is used when the patient wants the scar to be as inconspicuous as possible. It is also known as a breast lift procedure with cohesive silicone gel implants.
At Dr Miguel Fernández Calderón’s clinic we are specialists in breast surgery with anatomical prostheses. We perform the procedure with great care so that the incision is as inconspicuous as possible. It is even possible to make a single scar around the areola.
Breast sagging is quite common, especially in women with medium and large breasts. It is caused by a number of factors, including age, pregnancy and weight loss.
In these cases, the breast loses its shape and firmness, decreasing in volume and acquiring a flaccid appearance, which can lead to insecurities.
One of the best ways to lift your breasts, put them in place and give them a better shape is through mastopexy with prostheses. This procedure gives you youthful-looking, natural, symmetrical and well-positioned breasts. It will also make you more confident and improve your self-esteem.

What is the mastopexy procedure in Madrid like?
General anaesthesia is required for the operation. In addition, it is recommended that the patient is admitted to the clinic the day before the operation.
The method used by the cosmetic surgery specialist will depend on the unique conditions and preferences of the patient.
Basically, the main techniques are similar to non-prosthetic breast lifts. Small incisions are made in the breast area whose skin is to be removed.
One of the most common techniques is the three-incision technique. In this one, a cut is made around the areola, another one in the shape of an inverted T: from the previous cut towards the lower part of the areola to the lower part of the breast. Finally, the third incision is made below the breast horizontally following the natural base of the breast.
The excess skin and tissue is removed. Implants are then placed to give better shape and volume to the breasts, placing them in a suitable position. The nipple and areola are then repositioned to a higher area.
The incisions are closed with sutures that may be slightly visible. Although these will disappear with time.
Finally, a bandage is placed on the patient to begin the recovery and healing process.
All this is done by the doctor with the patient completely asleep. In order to be able to perform the necessary intravenous induction and inhalation maintenance. So that the patient will not feel any discomfort while being operated on.
Duration of the procedure
The mastopexy procedure in Madrid can last from 2 to 4 hours. But this varies depending on the techniques used.
What to do after lifting surgery with prostheses in Madrid?
In the first postoperative days the patient usually experiences moderate discomfort. In most cases there is no intense pain. After the surgery and continuously during the first month after the operation, a bra without underwire must be worn.
In the meantime, the drains are removed 48 hours after the operation and the sutures are removed after two weeks.
For at least the first two days, the patient must be on bed rest. For the following four weeks, the patient must follow all the instructions given by the surgeon, once the mastopexy in Madrid has been performed.
The patient should avoid self-medication. If she notices that the bandage is very stained, feels unbearable discomfort (which is not relieved by the prescribed painkillers) and also has a fever, she must immediately inform her specialist of the situation.
If your work does not involve lifting or physical activity, you can return to work in about 10 days.
During recovery, no sudden movements or heavy lifting should be performed. Nor is it advisable to raise your arms above your shoulders.
On the other hand, you should wait longer than two months to do high-intensity physical exercise routines. Your doctor should tell you when it is possible for you to start your routines again.
Although you may notice results immediately, it should be at least 8 months before you see the final appearance of your breasts.
