Is there a lot of swelling involved with Mastopexy?

Your surgeon should attempt to make your scars as inconspicuous as possible.  However, you must realize that Mastopexy scars are extensive and permanent.  The scars will be red and raised for several months -- gradually fading in color and flattening out.

Nipple sensation is generally preserved with this operation.  The incidence of loss is usually less than 5%.  In many individuals where there is significant ptosis, the sensation has diminished prior to the operation.  In these individuals, nipple sensation will sometimes increase after the procedure.  However, swelling may decrease sensitivity in the nipple area and/or the breast tissue from the swelling blocking the verves ability to send and receive messages from the brain.
