Breast lift (mastopexy)

Mastopexy - the breast lift - tightens breast tissues and removes excess skin, giving them a more ideal shape and position.

After mastopexy last week, should the incision line from the nipple down have tucks along it? Mine is not smooth at all.

It is quite common to have "tucks" along the vertical incision line after a mastopexy. It takes time for the line to heal. You should follow up with your plastic surgeon.
