Breast Reduction / Breast Lift (Reduction Plastic / Mastopexy)
Large or pendulous breasts do not only harm corporal self-esteem, but can also lead to painful chronic deformities, mainly of neck, breast and back. Moreover, the suffering are often restricted in their physical activities and sexual life.
Depending on the size and finding, a breast lift or reduction can be the right treatment option
The breast can be corrected to the desired form and size. During the operation a reduction of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple, is possible, as well. Both operations can be done at any age. Important is however that your body is fully grown and the breasts are fully developed.
Various techniques can be used to achieve the desired result. It is important to us that a technique is chosen which causes as few scars as possible (e.g. Le Jour Technique). Stitches are usually located around the areola with a vertical line extending downwards. In case of a moderate breast lift a sole incision around the nipple might be sufficient.
The procedure takes about 1.5 to 2.5 hours and is performed in general anaesthesia. After the surgery the patient has to stay in the hospital for two or three nights.
Usually 14 days after the procedure stitches are being removed. During that period we recommend to wear a tight jogging bra which will be provided by us.
All details, the different methods of breast reduction / breast lift and individual needs and wishes will be explained and evaluated in a personal counselling interview.
