Breast lift or breast reduction?
Inexorably, a loosening of the connective tissue occurs in old age. In many parts of the body this is not immediately noticeable, but especially women complain about an increasing elasticity of the breast tissue in old age. Although this is a completely natural process, many of those affected suffer greatly from it. Hanging and sagging breasts disturb the self-confidence and do not correspond to the desired ideal of beauty.
Even after a pregnancy or a strong weight loss, the shape of the breasts can change a lot due to the extended skin.
If you want to get your breast back into shape, a breast lift is a suitable solution. The operation makes it possible to firm your breasts and restore their natural shape. During the lifting procedure, the excess skin is removed and the mammary gland tissue is mobilized in such a way that the volume loss in the upper breast area is replenished.
The surgical technique of a breast lift is similar to that of a breast reduction. Here, in addition to the skin, breast tissue is also removed, thus giving the breast an aesthetic shape. As a result, pain in the shoulder area and back can be significantly improved due to the reduced weight of the chest.
Since this is a surgical procedure, you should seek detailed advice. I am at your disposal with pleasure.

Will I have a scar?
Yes, surgery involving skin incision is always accompanied by a scar. Depending on the surgical technique, this scar can be circular around the areola, vertical, arched or t-shaped. Usually the scars heal very well and are only slightly visible after 6 months at the latest.
Can a lift be combined with breast augmentation?
Yes, if the volume disappears with age but the skin is also sagging, breast implants can be inserted simultaneously in one operation and the excess skin tightened afterwards.
Will this procedure be performed stationary?
In the case of pronounced breast reductions, I definitely recommend a stationary stay for safety reasons. Smaller liftings can be carried out on an outpatient basis.
Can I breastfeed afterwards?
Yes, in principle, the breast gland tissue is spared during lifting, so that breastfeeding is still possible. However, I recommend that you wait for the breastfeeding phase, as it is possible that the elasticity will still increase during this time and the effect of an early lifting would not be permanent.
