Before after photos breast lift

The photos below show patients before and after a breast lift. The after pictures are usually taken from the third month after the operation. Before this time, the result is already visible but often not 100% conclusive due to swelling. For all operations, photos are taken for documentation purposes during the consultation. This is used for planning the operation and for comparison purposes

Form your own opinion based on these results

Aesthetic surgery often involves procedures that change the shape of the body. This change begins gradually immediately after the operation. Patients go through an emotional time here. Initially, there is often doubt about the purpose and success of the operation, which is often accompanied by a degree of uncertainty. Due to the initial swelling and possible hematoma formation (bruising), the result does not yet meet expectations. As soon as the initial swelling is reduced and the haematoma fades, the result can already be seen more clearly. Patients describe this phase as “relief”. As the goal is foreseeable, the start, i.e. the original state before the operation, is often forgotten. When the last swelling subsides approx. 2-3 months after the operation, the actual “joy” about the result of the operation begins. However, this joy is then permanent and is reinforced by the direct comparison of the “before” pictures.

Here you will find a small selection of photos of patients of all ages and different anatomical variations.

What you can expect after a breast lift

Patients who opt for a breast lift want a firmer, fuller breast. Of course, the end result plays the biggest role in this. But how exactly will you look in the time leading up to the final result? In the long term, this will of course play a somewhat subordinate role, but it is important for me to inform you about it.

In the photos selected above you can see the results approximately 2-3 months after a breast lift. It is clearly visible here that the sagging part of the breast has been lifted and tightened in a natural, not artificial, way. Of course, every anatomy is unique, but you may recognize yourself in one or the other picture. There are two main reasons for this: firstly, the length of the part that hangs over the underbust fold and secondly, the lack of volume around the upper pole of the breast.

The breast lift addresses both points and can be adjusted according to your anatomy.

But what will you look like shortly after the operation? Immediately after the operation, the wounds will have incisions corresponding to the incisions made. These will run circularly around the nipples and vertically to the underbust crease and, in the case of larger lifts, also in the underbust crease. In the first few days after the operation until the suture material is removed, these scars will remain covered with thin strips of plaster. The tightening of the breast and the subsequent suturing will result in moderate swelling. The compression bra fitted before the operation will reduce this swelling somewhat. Occasionally there are also hematomas (bruising) which can last for approx. 7-10 days. During this time, it is somewhat difficult to lift the arms, especially above 90 degrees. The final result can already be guessed at but cannot yet be assessed 100%. You will notice a slightly red scar after the suture material is removed on the 10th-12th day after the operation. This redness is normal and will fade quickly. Once the wound is completely closed, you can massage the skin and scars with silicone rubs to soften the scar.

After about 3 months, you will look at the final result and notice that the breast sags by about 0.5-1 cm. This is completely normal and is taken into account when planning the operation.
