Mastopexy or breast lift surgery in Mumbai is an operation that is performed to elevate and improve the shape of sagging breasts. In the course of the woman’s life circumstances such as pregnancy and lactation, significant weight loss, loss of skin elasticity and the weight of the glandular tissue itself cause the breast to tend to fall producing breast ptosis. If the volume of the breast is insufficient, we can associate an increase by placing implants while raising the breast.
What is the indication of mastopexy or breast lift surgery in Mumbai?
The surgery is indicated in patients who have sagging and drooping breasts (breast ptosis). The main objective of mastopexy is to reshape the breasts, lifting and repositioning the areola and remove excess of skin, improving the shape and consistency of the breasts.

During the operation itself
There are different types of breast lifts depending on how much the breasts have sunk down.
The slightest action is called wart lift when skin is removed around the areola, especially on the upper side. Scars will be around the areola only.
The most extensive procedure is the same operation as in a breast reduction, but all glands and adipose tissue are left behind. The scar becomes like an anchor.
Smaller breast lifts are done under local anesthesia, larger ones are performed under anesthesia.
After completion of surgery
Wound drainage is applied on each side after surgery. These are removed after a few hours and in rare cases the next day. You go home the same day. The pain after surgery is usually minor. If necessary, use your painkillers as prescribed. You can start showering after 3 days. You then start wearing a steady sports bra around the clock for two weeks then only during the daytime for two weeks.
The sensation in the breasts can decrease, especially in the lower part. Most often, a normalization occurs gradually over 12 – 18 months.
As a rule, breastfeeding ability is not affected.
How are the scars in mastopexy in Mumbai?
The scars vary according to the existing sagging and the fall in the amount of breast parenchyma to mount, being the most used vertical, vertical scars with small horizontal, inverted T and L. The size of the scar depends upon the amount of skin that is removed. The scars become less visible over time.
