For a More Youthful Shape at Any Age

Why do many women desire a breast lift?

At the age of 16 to 18, the female breast is fully grown. However, we at Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery know that the shape of the breasts will change over time due to a number of influences. These comprise hormonal shifts, e.g. during pregnancy, breast feeding which is stressful for the breasts, or menopause. But even gravity will exert its force on the breasts, and overall tissue firmness will change simply as a result of the natural aging of the body. With age, the connective tissue loses some of its resilience and firmness, often leading to a change in the shape of the breasts, which is perceived by many women as aesthetically limiting. Since the breast is not only made up of glandular tissue but also contains fat cells, it may even loose volume and resilience due to weight loss.

While for young women the nipples are positioned usually above breast fold level, they may droop considerably over the years. But many women feel quite diminished in their femininity and their self-confident appearance by saggy breasts. This reduced self-confidence may even have a negative impact on their sexual life. A breast lift (mastopexy) at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will give patients firm, well-shaped breasts which provide new self-confidence and youthful shapeliness.

FAQ on Breast Lift

Who may benefit from a breast lift?

For women whose breasts are of normal size but have lost firmness – e.g. after considerable weight loss, after breastfeeding, or in the course of natural aging –, a breast lift conducted at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery may bring about the best results. After the treatment, the breasts will be visibly lifted and toned, resulting in new self-confidence for many patients. The size will not be changed by a breast lift, but the breasts will appear fuller and more toned afterwards, since excess skin is removed. On principle, a breast lift can be conducted with breasts of any size. Patients with a large cup size who also desire a breast reduction may achieve optimal results by a combination treatment of breast reduction and breast lift.

How do we conduct a breast lift?

The breast lift (mastopexy) will be conducted under general anaesthesia and requires a 1–2 day stay at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. During a breast lift conducted at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, hardly any tissue will be removed but instead parts of the superficial skin layers, so that the original size of the breast volume is safeguarded. Depending on the extent, the operation will take about two to four hours. As a rule, the necessary incision (i-cut) is performed around the areola and disappears vertically downward in the breast fold. Thanks to this special incision technique, scars will heal particularly quickly and unobtrusively so that they will be hardly discernible at all after a few months.

What is important following a breast lift?

After a breast lift, in many cases there will be swelling and slight bruising in the treated area. Also, a feeling of tension in the breasts during the first weeks after a breast lift is completely normal. As a rule, not much pain is to be expected, but depending on the sensitivity of the patient, pain-alleviating medication may be taken during a certain time after the operation, if needed.

During the first six weeks, our patients should plan for extensive rest and not perform any exerting physical activities such as sports or carrying heavy objects. In order to promote wound healing in an optimal way, sunbathing or visiting a solarium are taboo for several months. Alcohol and nicotine are also detrimental to the healing process. Moreover, directly after the operation, patients will receive a special bra which will take off tension from the sutures, thus promoting healing.

Due to a potential impairment of superficial skin nerves, there may be temporary sensibility disorders in the breasts and at the nipples during the first time after the breast lift.

Until the breasts will have achieved their final shape after the breast lift (mastopexy), about three to six months will pass, since wound healing takes a certain time. We will inform you comprehensively in a detailed personal consultation in our clinic at Nuremberg about any potential risks as well as how we will proceed with our treatment in your individual case. Please feel free to contact the team of Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery about this.

Which breast lift methods are there?

At our Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the incision for a breast lift is conducted as a rule around the areola and then vertically downward to the breast fold. The benefit of this method lies in the fact that scars will heal more quickly and better, and will later be practically invisible.

What is important before a breast lift?

For two weeks before a breast lift, no blood-thinning medication like aspirin and no nutritional supplements should be taken. We will inform our patients in a detailed consultation before the breast lift about what is important in preparing for the operation.

Will a breast lift bring about pain?

After the breast lift, there may be swelling and also light pain; this can be managed well with current pain medication if necessary. As a rule, no stronger pain is to be expected.

How long does the healing after a breast lift last?

The healing phase after a breast lift may last about 3–6 months. Only then will the final shape be visible.

When will I be presentable again after a breast lift and will be able to do sports?

As a rule, our patients will be presentable again after 2 weeks. Sports, exercise, physical exertion and heavy work should not be started any earlier than 6 weeks after the operation, and this start should be very gentle and easy at first.

How much does a breast lift in Nuremberg cost?

The costs for a breast lift at our Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery start at 7,500 €. We will be happy to prepare an individual cost calculation for you adapted to your particular needs during a personal consultation.
