BEFORE THE CONSULTATION

  • Before our meeting, try to be clear about what you would like from your breast lift surgery: how you would like your breasts to look. To do this, help yourself with photos of women who have already had breast surgery.
  • Try to understand at this stage whether you would only like to lift your breasts (breast lift) or also increase their volume (breast lift or augmentation).

THE CONSULTATION

  • During the preliminary visit to your breast lift surgery, we start with your wishes.
  • It is at this point that I will assess the current state of your breasts by taking some measurements to see how effective the elevation can be and whether or not there will be a need for implants.
  • Finally, I will explain breast lift surgery in detail and how you should behave during the postoperative period.

BEFORE THE PROCEDURE

  • Only three more tests to prepare you for the breast lift surgery: blood test, electrocardiogram and an ultrasound or mammogram.

  • On the appointed day, you will come to the clinic at the appointed time after taking a shower, on an empty stomach, with the results of the tests, an ID card and your social security number.

  • All that is missing at this point are the preoperative photos and a breast marking.

THE ACTUAL SURGERY

  • Breast lift surgery is nothing more than the surgical elevation of the breast and can be performed with or without implants.
  • In general, the extent of scars in breast lift surgery is in proportion to the type of correction performed.
  • The operation takes about 2 hours and you will most likely be discharged the same day although, in some cases, an overnight stay in the clinic may be recommended.

AFTER SURGERY

  • For the first week after surgery, you will use elastic bands to provide even compression on your breasts.

  • Within 5-10 days, if you wish, you will be able to resume lighter daily and work activities. Sports only after 2 months.

  • The normal post-operative check-ups after breast lift surgery are at 1,2,4 weeks and 3-6 months, but can be customised if necessary.

IMPLANTS

  • They are used when performing an additive or augmentation breast lift. That is, when in addition to raising the breasts you want to increase their volume.

  • I only use Motiva implants because of their high quality and advanced research of the materials used. This is a point I hold very dear.

NATURAL RESULTS

  • This is a problem that only arises in the case of breast lifts or augmentation due to the use of implants.

  • As a general rule, one should not exaggerate in their choice.
