For very sagging and emptied breasts, the vertical scar may extend briefly and horizontally in the mammary sulcus with an L or inverted T shape or peri-areolar, vertical and horizontal scar

The scar can be placed in the peri-areolar area only for a small lift. or it may be necessary to make another vertical access route that goes from the areola to the inframammary fold

The suture is carefully performed thanks to special threads, favoring the intradermal suture technique which prevents the stitches from being visible from the outside.

Patients with small breasts and very little ptosis can undergo surgical procedures that involve little scarring

The breast prosthesis is possibly always inserted through the same access necessary for the correction of the ptosis. All methods require a particular bandage which is kept for the first 48 hours
