Breast Lift

A consultation always takes place before surgery. It includes a full description of the treatment and mentions the potential complications as well as answering individual/personal questions.
This description is necessary in order to be prepared for the personal meeting and to be informed about the most important points.

Mode of Anaesthetization:
general aenesthetic
Period of operation:
1.5-2 hours
Estimated time of hospital care:
1 night
Ability to return to workplace:
earliest after 1 week
Continuation of your ordinary lifestyle:
after 6 weeks
Completely return to the lifestyle led after operation:
removal of sutures after 10-14 days, maturation of the scar will end appr. 6 months - 1 year


Reason of medical intervention

After childbirth or weight reduction, the tissue of the breast could slacken and the skin of the breast can expand, forming hanging breasts (ptosis). In this case, the original state of mammila also changes.


The Operation

The correction of hanging breasts can be achieved with mastoplexy or/and implantation.

The type of surgical incision and solution depends on the current status of the breast.  The operation will be performed using the most modern technical methods with the smallest incisions. These can be covered by plastic stitches under the skin which assure you of lined, hardly visible scars.

The operation is performed under narcosis, it usually takes 1,5 -2 hours.


Before surgery

Ultrasound examination of the breasts is needed before operation, and those patients above 40 yrs old require a mammograph.

Prior to the operation in narcosis, the following medical examinations are necessary: EKG, chest X-ray, laboratory test. On the day of surgery, the patient has to stay one night in the hospital.

We can helpfully organize any necessary examinations.


Therapy after Operation, Medicines, Lifestyle, Monitoring

In case of implantation, the patient has to stay 1 night in the hospital. On the second day of the operation, the drain will be removed.

Within 24-48 hours after the operation the patient can remove the cover dressing and can shower.

The sutures will be absorbed within a few months and the scars will fade and over 1-2 years they will become almost invisible.

In the first few weeks, the patient must constantly wear a sport-bra. Your doctor will inform you about the term of recovery, the start date of sport activities, and the period to wear a sport-bra.

Further free examinations or personal counseling are possible by appointment.

After surgery, if you have fever, pain, hematoma or any other complaint please contact us immediately.


General and Special Risks of Operation, Possible Complications

We’ll inform you about all risks of anaesthesia during your personal consultation. In order to reduce surgical complications we give antibiotic medicine and an injection (LMWH) before every operation to prevent thrombus during anaesthesia.

After the operation, very rarely there may be inflammation, postoperative bleeding, problems with the wound healing or the body may reject it. The surgical hospital will address and resolve these problems. A few years later, it may be that in one or both breasts a capsula around the implant may develop which can be listed as 4th degree. If the breast is feeling hard (this probably means 3rd, 4th degree) you’ll have to visit your doctor immediately.

Surgical incision scars depend mainly upon patients’ skin and genetic predisposition which makes the scar a normal thin line, or thickened (keloid),or expanded (hypertrophia).

The spontaneous leakage of implants is very rare, but in case of an accident or injury, this could require immediate change.  Common lifestyle activities, sports, high pressure (diving), low air pressure (flying), all won’t damage the implant. The sensation of the breasts remains but sometimes there might be damage to nerves causing the skin of the breast and around the areola to be desensitized.

Directly after the operation, one can feel strong, straining pain, but over 1-2 weeks it will decrease and finally come to an end. If the implantation was placed under the muscle, the movement of your arms can be limited because of initial pain and it takes a few weeks to abate.

You’ll get specific advice about your risks and possible complications from your personal doctor.
