Breast lift (mastopexy, breast lifting) in Bamberg (northern Bavaria)
Depending on the weight of the breasts and the consistency of the connective tissue, the breasts begin to sag in a woman’s twenty-fifth year. Pregnancies, weight loss, or hormonal changes are often accompanied with a slackening of the breasts.
There are basically two ways to tighten the breasts and recover an attractive round form. For women who wish recover breast size as well, a breast implant is usually enough, since this automatically tightens the skin over the breast (see also breast enlargement). This procedure results in a larger cup size.
However, many women who consider breast lifting are satisfied with their cup size or do not want an implantation operation. They want higher nipples, a rounder form, and tighter skin. In these cases, a simple tightening of the surface layer of the skin by means of tucking is advisable. With this procedure, our primary goal is to avoid noticeable scars. That is why we normally use the “round block” technique, which only leaves delicate scars around the nipple, or a vertical incision (“i-incision”). In pronounced cases, an additional incision under the breast (“t-incision”) and the reshaping of the entire gland is unavoidable if we want to achieve an attractive, round breast shape.
Breast lifting is a relatively harmless procedure which could theoretically be carried out under local anesthesia. However, we advise twilight sedation. Patients who undergo “i-incision” or “round block” procedures can be released on the same day. Following a more extensive tightening with a “t-incision”, we advise spending one night in our clinic. During the two-week recovery period following a breast tightening, our patients have amazingly few complaints. It is important to wear a well-fitting sports bra during this time.
