Breast lift

Through a variety of procedures, it is possible to reduce excess skin, lift the breast, adjust it to your body shape and reposition the nipples. It is also possible to insert breast implants as part of this treatment to give your breasts more volume and fullness.

Procedure

Before performing the breast lift, I hold a comprehensive personal consultation with you in which I discuss your individual wishes and expectations in detail and inform you about all aspects of a breast lift. Together we will develop a tailor-made treatment concept, discuss your desired result and the most suitable surgical method.

The actual operation is performed under general anaesthesia and takes about 2-3 hours. I remove excess skin and tissue using a low-scar technique and lift the nipple again. The sagging tissue is tightened to give the breast back its beautiful shape. The nerves and blood vessels of the nipple are preserved so that sensitivity remains largely normal and the ability to breastfeed is also retained. After the operation, the incisions are sutured and, if necessary, wound drains are inserted for the first 24 hours to allow wound secretions to drain away. A support bandage is also applied to stabilise the breast.

The operation can be done on an outpatient basis, but it is advisable for the patient to stay in the clinic for one night for observation. In case of questions or problems after the operation, we are available by telephone. The day after the operation, dressings are changed and a compression bra is applied, which should be worn for the first 6 weeks. During this time it is important to avoid physical activities.

FAQ

A breast lift is a surgical procedure in which excess skin is removed to lift the breasts and give them a firmer shape. It is suitable for women who suffer from sagging or drooping breasts, often due to pregnancy, weight loss or the natural ageing process.

Different techniques are used for a breast lift, depending on the individual needs and goals of the patient. These include the incision around the nipple (periareolar incision), the vertical incision (lollipop-shaped) and the T-incision (anchor-shaped). 

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and possible complications associated with a breast lift. These include infection, bleeding, scarring, temporary or permanent changes in nipple sensation and asymmetrical results.

During a consultation we will explain the risks in detail so that all your questions are answered.

Yes, a breast lift can be combined with other breast surgeries such as a breast augmentation or reduction. This can help achieve the desired aesthetic results and provide a comprehensive breast makeover.

We will be happy to discuss the different options with you and recommend the best course of action.

A breast lift can affect breastfeeding as the operation can alter certain parts of the breast, including the milk ducts.
Therefore, it is important to talk to us about this if you plan to breastfeed in the future to make the best possible decision.

The result of a breast lift can be long-lasting, but the natural ageing process and other factors such as pregnancy or weight changes can cause changes to the breasts over time. In some cases, further surgery or correction may be required to maintain or adjust the result.
