In this type of surgery, general or intravenous anesthesia combined with local anesthesia is necessary. Generally, mastopexy lasts from two to three hours – the doctor removes excess skin and subcutaneous tissue, shapes the lower part of the breast and moves the breast areolas up. Depending on the technique, there are applied various kinds of stitches that are removed after a maximum of ten days. Postoperative scars are usually located on the edge of the skin so that they do not disfigure the breast. The character and size of the changes primarily affect the final look of the breast. It is worth noting that the surgery is associated with long-lasting pain and swelling. The scars also change their colour and size for a long period of time. Stitches are usually removed after two weeks.
