The lifting of the breast, which is also known as mastopexy, is a procedure carried out to lift a breast that is sagging or which has lost its shape due to the passage of time, weight loss or pregnancy.


In certain cases that there is sufficient volume of the mammary gland it will only be necessary to raise the breast and fix it to a higher position, However, it is common that we have to increase the breast volume with the fat of the patient or with the placement of a prosthesis in the same surgery of breast elevation.

The shapes of the prostheses can be round, anatomical (tear drop-shaped) and ergonomic. The latter are the most advanced prostheses, since they adapt to the natural movements of the body and acquire maximum naturalness. Another very important feature is that because of the type of wrapping with which they are manufactured they do not have the risk of encapsulation. The choice of one or the other depends on the patient’s breast shape and the surgeon’s advice according to the existing breast tissues. IN INSTITUDO PEREZ DE LA ROMANA  WE USE THIS TYPE OF PROSTESIS.


There have been great improvements in this procedure in recent times, and the resulting scarring of breast elevation procedures has been reduced.

At the present moment we only make a circular scar around the areola, but when there is too much skin or the breasts are very saggy we make another vertical scar, which over time will be practically invisible.


With careful handling of the tissue and inserting the prosthesis underneath the pectoral muscle, we ensure that the breast is always in line with its upper section. The prosthesis is protected by the muscle, which will prevent it from falling, and we remove the sagging lower part of the gland and skin. This is the main advantage of our technique: previously, we would only lift the gland, which would sag again.

At the moment, we completely and permanently correct the sagging of the breast by removing the bottom of the breast and keeping packed the upper pole with the prosthesis, resulting in a perfect breast lift.


The patient must wear a compression band for a week, and will then wear a bra for one month. The patient will be able to resume their normal routine within a week.

When can I have a breast lift?

You will be able to have a breast lift whenever your breasts sag, whether you have had children or not. However, it is recommended that you have the procedure done after you have turned 18 and, in particular, after you have had children and are no longer breastfeeding.

I have always had small breasts and after breastfeeding, my breasts now have no shape and sag. What can I do?

Mastopexy, or the lifting of the breasts, is the ideal procedure whenever the breast is sagging, whether or not it is large or small. However, if the breast is small the breast will not only have to be lifted but also enhanced with a prosthesis. This will lead to a much better result.

What scarring does this procedure leave?

At present we only create one scar, a circular scar in the areola. However, when there is a lot of excess skin or the breast sags a lot we create another vertical scar, which, over time, becomes virtually unnoticeable.

How long does the result last?

Usually the results are long-lasting, especially when we put a prosthesis in place and it is almost entirely under the muscle, because the upper pole of the breast is always filled out. On other occasions, we also insert fat to help fill the emptiest parts of the breast.

Should I stop smoking before having the procedure?

Yes, we normally recommend patients stop smoking fifteen days before the procedure, as it affects blood circulation.

When will I be able to resume my employment?

After one or two weeks, depending on your type of work.
