The mastopexy is surgery to elevate and improve the shape of the breasts fallen. Over the years and as a result of pregnancy, breastfeeding and the force of gravity, the breast tends to fall, in addition, as the skin loses its elasticity the breast loses its shape and falls. With this technique, it is also possible to reduce the size of the areola.

I have been practicing plastic and reconstructive surgery for almost thirty years now, and this experience has allowed me to know much better the concerns and concerns of my patients.. One of the most demanded surgeries are all referring to the woman's breast.

Breast lift is one of the interventions that many women request, but it is also one of those that do not dare to perform because of the scars that occur as a result of such intervention. As a woman, I have never liked the scars left on my chest after performing a breast lift. This is one of the reasons why, some time ago, I tried to look for the formula so that a scar remains as little visible as possible.

I have developed a new surgical technique to get just one periareolar scar (very similar to that of breast augmentation); so that the result I get is that, over time, the scar will be confused with the "natural line" between the nipple and the rest of the breast.

This new technique consists in carrying out the elevation internally, so that it is possible to raise the breast groove to a considerable height. What we get is a smooth breast, in its natural position and with a small nipple.

Patients undergoing this new technique are delighted to be able to achieve their goal without having to carry, for life, the classic inverted T scar .

Personally, for me as a surgeon and as a woman, I find it very rewarding to offer this alternative to patients who want to undergo breast lift.
