Congenital feature, the result of pregnancy or remarkable weight loss can be reasons for breast lifting. After a while – as a result of the weak connective tissue – breasts with big volumes can get into a floppy position. We can correct – upon demand – the position of breasts with lifting by putting the nipples into an upper position and removing the redundant skin area.
The amount and size of scars depend on the position of breasts. We always need a cut around the nipples and so in some cases there is only this scar on the breast. If a more serious operation is needed then there will be a cut in the plica under the breast. Part of this operation can be the reduction of too big breasts or the enlargement of smaller breasts with implant depending on the previous discussion between the patient and the doctor.
