The elusive long term result in mastopexy, reveals the lack of an element that provides with certainty, an alternative that maintains the result surgically obtained. Although myriads of alternatives have been proposed in modern literature, most of them referred to lower pole anatomical molding as an indirect way to modify the upper pole as well, which is in fact the main target expectation for a good and sustained surgically outcome. There is a factor of confusion that has not been currently clarified; sustenance is not necessarily a synonym of suspension, being the latter our main objective that induced to present this technical proposal. The anatomical site of fusion of the superficial fascia which is in continuity with the mammary gland, and the proper pectoralis fascia, means that this structure can be used as a reinforced tissue that becomes as an anchoring site for the breast gland. An easily placement transglandular sutures stablishes the expected real suspension and the technical benefits derived from it, with the advantage of the use of non absorbable suture material that provides the occasion of change for a better good.
