Breast cosmetic surgery. Breast lift mastopexy. Breast augmentation and reduction

Mastopexy - Breast lift

Mastopexy, known as breast lift, is a highly requested intervention in cosmetic surgery indicated for women who wish to lift sagging breasts (mammary ptosis) or reduce and modify the shape and size of the areola. The surgical procedure gives new firmness and projection to emptied, sagging and ptosic breasts. The surgical treatment of breast ptosis consists in the excision of the excess skin, in the plication of the gland with fixation in a higher position, in the relocation of the areola-ca complex. The breast lift is a very safe, little painful operation, which can be performed in the day -hospital and characterized by rapid post-operative recovery times, piece in a superior position and in the eventual insertion of prostheses.

Breast esthetic surgery

Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation is aimed at increasing and improving the shape of the breast and is able to correct a breast asymmetry, improving the harmony of the body, to give more abundant and sensual curves, very natural and personalized even to the thinnest breast.

Breast augmentation is certainly the most requested cosmetic surgery. 

Breast augmentation surgery has the prosthetic implant as its only possibility.

The latest generation soft breast prostheses produced with biocompatible and long-lasting materials.

This is one of the most important operations performed in cosmetic surgery and it is certainly the one that gives the greatest satisfaction to both the surgeon and the patients, due to the remarkable aesthetic results that can be obtained. 

The operation lasts about an hour and a half performed under local anesthesia with conscious sedation.

Breast augmentation

After breast augmentation, the patient is bandaged and stays at the facility for one night and is discharged the following day.

Breast augmentation can also be achieved with a less invasive procedure, breast lipofilling which consists of the infiltration of autologous fat

Reduction mammaplasty

Reduction mastoplasty, the operation that resizes too abundant and asymmetrical breasts.

Reduction mammaplasty is used to make the size of the breast more proportionate to the physicality of the patient, correcting any problems of volumetric and shape asymmetry and repositioning the breasts higher, correcting the fall, or ptosis.

In cases of very large breast volumes (severe breast hypertrophy or gigantomastia), reduction mammoplasty becomes a real functional surgery that reduces back pain due to excessive breast weight, reduces ulceration disorders at the level of the shoulder bra and sores and infections of the inframammary folds.

The scars of reduction mammoplasty are anchor or in the shape of the inverted letter T, ie around the areola, in the inframammary fold and a vertical line joining these two scars.

Arm lift

How to perform thigh and arm lift surgery

On the legs, incisions are made in the upper, latero-pubic and groin regions, through which the skin is pulled upwards. After removing the excess skin, the skin is fixed with stitches in the new position. In some cases these procedures can also be associated with liposuction, to reduce fat deposits. This intervention involves more or less evident scars, generally hidden in the inguinal crease.

The arm lift involves the surgical removal of a part of the skin inside the arms and a strengthening of the underlying muscles. The cut always goes from the armpit to the elbow. Often a partial liposuction is also carried out in order to eliminate excess fat, reducing the circumference of the arm, followed by the removal of excess skin with final scars partly hidden in the armpit and then extended along the entire arm up to the elbow . To avoid the risk of accumulation of blood or interstitial fluids, drainages are applied for one or more days.

Gluteoplasty and buttock lipofilling

Gluteoplasty is a plastic surgery of the body that allows you to change the shape and size of the buttocks. Through gluteoplasty  it is possible to increase or modify and give a more pleasant shape or greater skin tone to the buttocks  in patients who present with relaxation of the tissues caused by significant weight loss or natural aging, or a flat or too small butt.

The most modern surgical techniques used for buttock plastic surgery are:

 - lipofilling or lipostructure,

 - the use of latest generation prostheses

 - glutoplasty without prosthesis with hyaluronic acid



Glutoplasty with Lipofilling or lipostructure is an innovative technique which consists in the use of autologous tissue to increase the volume and reshape the buttocks. Through very small cannulas, the adipose tissue is taken from areas where it is present in greater quantities such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, etc. and, after appropriate treatment, it is re-injected into the areas of the buttock to be filled.

Gluteoplasty with implants

Gluteoplasty with prostheses consists in the insertion of latest generation silicone prostheses conforming to medical use, specific to be implanted in the gluteal region and therefore more resistant than breast prostheses. The procedure involves making an incision of about 5/6 cm in the intergluteal groove for positioning the implant. It is made in the upper part of the buttocks, in the intergluteal groove, so that the scar remains hidden between the two buttocks. The prostheses can be positioned inside the gluteus maximus muscle, according to the Gonzales technique, or more superficially, following the De La Peña technique, below the fascia covering the muscle. It is also convenient to use drains that will only be left in place for a few days.

Glutoplasty without prosthesis. Third possibility of remodeling the buttocks can also be achieved with the use of hyaluronic acid which is injected into the depths of the tissues through a cannula. It will be necessary to inject at least 3-4 vials per side to have adequate visible remodeling

The treatment is carried out under local anesthesia, leaves no scars and does not require hospitalization. Once the treatment is finished, the results are visible immediately, at the end a plaster is placed and after 24 hours the patient can go back to carrying out all her daily activities.

The aesthetic result lasts about a year, after which it is possible to undergo the treatment again.
