Breast Lift: A way to improve your natural breast shape - permanently


A breast lift forms your breasts to make them firmer and fuller at the top. You can have the procedure performed on your breasts regardless of your height or weight. However, in women with heavier breasts, the results may not last that long and may require surgery with Liposuction.

A breast lift corrects the position of the nipple, lifts up the breast tissue, removes lax skin and creates overall firmer breasts.

Where is the incision for a breast lift?

I use three incisions to perform a lift, depending on the distance at which the nipple needs to be lifted and the shape of your chest. If the nipple has to move a minimum degree, it is possible to make the incision around the areola. Depending on the amount of deformation required, a fine scar can form vertically in the underside of the breast.

During a breast lift, I reposition the nipple at the level of the breast fold. Here the nipple is located during adolescence. I prefer the vertical mastopexy technique for the breast lift (also called Lejour technique), modified by a special procedure. This ensures a harmonious shape and firmer breasts, especially on the upper part of the breast. The procedure is always performed on an outpatient basis in my practice operating theatre.

"I am always amazed to see the difference in my patients before and after surgery. The difference lies not only in her improved appearance, but also in her self-confidence."

Do I get better results if I combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation?

If your breast is very small or has lost volume in general, the combination of a breast lift with implants can be a good way to increase firmness. I often discuss this option with my patients, but it’s up to you what type of breast lift you choose. You can choose between a breast lift by itself, or together with breast enlargement, as the ultimate breast rejuvenation.

What is the postoperative period like?

After the breast lift your breast will be wrapped in a bandage and placed in a soft supporting bra. You will wear this bra around the clock for the first month after the operation. You will probably notice that your breast is swollen and sore in the first days after the operation. Most patients need painkillers in the first days and can work again after one week. You can start light sports activities the day after the operation and strenuous training is possible again after about four weeks. 

Are the results of a breast lift permanent?

The results should be long-term, but weight changes, pregnancy and natural aging can change the appearance of the breast. That is why I am in contact with my patients for many years after the breast lift surgery to accompany the results in the long run.

A picture says more than a million words

In order to protect the privacy of my patients, I deliberately refrain from showing before and after pictures on my website. However, several patients have agreed that their photos can be viewed by potential patients in the practice. During your consultation you will have the opportunity to view images of real patients and the results of my procedures. Some patients have also agreed to talk to potential patients if you want to learn more about the breast lift surgery from a patient’s perspective.
