Breast Reduction / Breast Lift (Mammary Reduction / Mastopexy)
Pregnancy or age-related changes of tissue and skin can lead to sagging breasts. This process can be reversed by breast reduction or breast lift, therefore increasing the quality of life and physical well-being of the patient.
Very heavy and large breasts often lead to neck and shoulder pain, to include headaches. Close and cutting bra straps can cause a tingling sensation, which often end in postural abnormalities. The psychological stress that is triggered by personal appearance often leads to changes in psychosocial behavior.
Thanks to many years of experience in breast surgery we can offer you optimum solutions for any issue. The procedure is performed as scar-saving as possible.
Before the procedure, we will discuss and answer in detail all individual questions about breast size, breast shape, scars, feelings, and the ability to breastfeed.
The actual operation is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 2-3 hours. After about 14 days, the stitches can be removed. After surgery, we recommend the use of a compression bra for about 6 weeks.
Every woman is different and so is the healing process. After surgery, you should rest the first 1-2 days. During this time the breast are swollen and sensitive to touch. You can perform normal activities after about 1 week. We recommend our patients to wear a special support bra after the operation. This special bra supports the healing process and accelerates recovery. You should wear this bra for about 6 weeks.
We offer free check-ups after 1, 7 and 14 days. Further check-ups are then performed once a year.
