Breast Lift

Breast Lift

A breast lift (Mastopexy) is a very common cosmetic procedure for women whose breasts have lost shape due to childbirth, weight loss or as part of the ageing process. This procedure can be combined with breast implants/breast augmentation to add extra volume to the breast after lifting.

Suitable candidates for breast lift

If you have sagging breasts - the nipple is at the same level or lower than the fold under the breast - you are a suitable candidate for a breast lift. Patients who have sufficient cup volume but the skin of their breasts is saggy, are good candidates for a breast lift. In case you have insufficient cup volume, and the skin of your breasts is saggy, you are a good candidate for having your breasts firmed by a breast lift together with the insertion of implants. 

You are a suitable candidate for a breast enlargement if your nipple is positioned above the inframammary fold.

If you have sagging breasts (grade 1 or higher) - if the nipple is at the same level or lower than the fold under the breast - you are eligible for a breast lift. This means that firming your breasts by lifting and removing excess skin will be more effective in your case.

If your breasts are saggy (grade 1 or higher) and you would like larger as well as firmer breasts, you can opt for a breast lift combined with a breast enlargement. This can usually be achieved during the same procedure.

A breast lift procedure

A breast lift operation requires a personal approach, particularly with regards to the size you want to have after the procedure.

Depending on how much your breasts are sagging, we offer a mini-breast lift or a full breast lift

With a mini breast lift, the incision is made around the areola for slightly sagging breasts (donut lift) or around the areola and vertically in the direction of the breast fold (lollipop lift) for moderately sagging breasts.  

When your breasts are significantly heavier and therefor more sagging, you can choose a full breast lift with an anchor-shaped incision.

If you would like a slightly fuller cup size the surgeon will add volume by inserting breast implants.

The surgeon will discuss the best course of action with you.

What to expect?

Depending on the type of operation, you may be admitted for one day. Sometimes the procedure is performed on an outpatient basis so that you can go home on the same day. The procedure takes two to three hours and is performed under intravenous sedation.

The incisions are stitched and scars fade after 6-18 months and will be less noticeable as time passes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I choose a breast enlargement or a breast lift?
If you have firm breasts but insufficient volume the areola is not lower than the level of your breast fold, you are eligible for a MIBIS breast enlargement. However, if your breast skin is saggy, if the nipple is at the level of your breast fold or droops even lower, a breast lift will be more effective for you.
Will the nipple still be sensitive after the breast lift?
If the nipple is repositioned, the sensitivity and response of the nipples may be reduced temporarily. This usually returns completely after several weeks or months. Permanent loss of feeling in the nipple may occur, as could circulation problems that may lead to partial or complete loss of the nipple. Smoking may contribute to this. This risk can be avoided by stopping to smoke three weeks before and for three weeks after the operation. Permanent loss of feeling and circulation disorders are rare.
