What are the risks associated with mastopexy?
Bleeding, infection, loss of nipple or skin tissue, decreased nipple sensation, delayed healing and excessive scarring can occur following a breast lift, but all are quite rare. Combining implants with a breast lift adds the risks associated with implants. Among the more significant ones are capsular contracture (implant hardening) and uneven positioning of the implants. Both can require corrective surgery. In addition, implants require periodic replacement throughout life.
