Breast lift

To be honest: none of us are getting any younger. And even more honestly: When you lose weight, not only your weight changes, but also your body. And children can literally feed on you too. Fortunately, in these cases, a breast lift brings back the desired shape of the breast.

An outpatient procedure in twilight, almost painless that gives you a new attitude to life< /p>

Breast lift

Breast lift for aesthetic breasts

There are different types of breast lift with different incisions, all of which aim to remove excess skin to remove and move the nipple upwards. The T-cut, the L-cut and the vertical cut are available. Ideally, you only cut around the nipple, remove the skin, place the nipple up and sew the skin around it. In some cases, a vertical incision must be made from the lower edge of the areola towards the inframammary fold. If the breasts are severely sagging, an additional horizontal incision, called a T-incision, along the breast crease may be necessary. If possible, preference should be given to those variants that cause only a few scars.

Vor der Op

  • For a period of approximately 14 days before the breast lift, you should avoid medications containing acetylsalicylic acid (e.g. E.g. aspirin, ASS, etc.) should be avoided as these impair blood clotting.
  • You should also avoid alcohol Avoid cigarettes, cigarettes and sleeping pills as much as possible. Nicotine can also reduce blood flow to organs and delay wound healing. Therefore, avoid nicotine two weeks before the operation and also during the wound healing phase.

Nach der Op

  • Stitch removal is usually not necessary with self-dissolving suture material
  • Plaster removal: after 2 weeks
  • Metal-free sports bra: 6 weeks (day and night)


The procedure is carried out in twilight sleep.  

During a breast lift, the excess skin is removed, the breast is reshaped and given the correct anatomical shape. The incision depends on the shape and size of the breast. If there is not enough autologous tissue, the breast can also be enlarged using an implant.


The scar formation depends on the patient, the incision and the course of the breast lift. Wound healing problems are possible, and sensitivity problems in the nipple area can also occur, which usually regulate themselves after some time.
