Mastopexy usually takes one-and-a-half to three-and-a-half hours. Techniques vary, but the most common procedure involves an anchor-shaped incision following the natural contour of the breast.

 

The incision outlines the area from which breast skin will be removed and defines the new location for the nipple. When the excess skin has been removed, the nipple and areola are moved to the higher position. The skin surrounding the areola is then brought down and together to reshape the breast. Stitches are usually located around the areola, in a vertical line extending downward from the nipple area, and along the lower crease of the breast.
