Breast Surgery

The breasts are an extremely important issue for women today, since they still count as a feature of attractiveness, as a sign of femininity. Even breasts which were once perfect can change due to various factors. Conditioned by the natural ageing process, unaesthetic changes may arise. Pregnancies and nursing periods slacken breast tissue and gravity does the rest. Illnesses also play a significant role. Some women complain of excessively large nipples and should know that in this case too, a correction has for a long time been possible without leaving visible scars.

For many women, a well formed breast is very important for their feelings of self-worth and often their general feeling of well-being is contingent on this.

With the current possibilities of modern cosmetic surgery, no woman is obliged to live with breasts which are too small, too large or which require tightening.

By virtue of new techniques and many years of experience, we can examine your problem on an individual basis and offer you many possibilities for making your wish for aesthetic breasts come true.

  • Breast enlargement
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast lifting

Making the corrections to the female breast which are adapted to the body of the patient in terms of aesthetics and health represent the sensitive and demanding work of the surgeon.

Breast enlargement

For most women, the female breast is an important theme.
Breasts which are too small frequently affect self-esteem and with it a general sense of well-being.

Nowadays, a breast enlargement should not however represent an excessively large problem. The materials used for a breast enlargement are pads filled with saline or silicone gel which are available in different forms and sizes. In an extensive advisory discussion, wishes and perceptions can be discussed with the surgeon. The advisory discussion also clarifies whether silicone pads or saline pads will be used. Moreover, the anatomical preconditions shall be tested.

The desired implant shall be introduced into the breast via the armpit, via the outer nipple area or via the inframammary fold. The decision as to whether the patches shall be laid below or above the breast muscle is equally dependent on the anatomy of the patient.

In principle, the operation takes place under a general anaesthetic and is accompanied by an inpatient stay of one night. The operation lasts from 60 to 90 minutes. The wound is sutured with self dissolving stitches and the scars are subsequently hardly visible.

A bandage must be worn for five days. After this, a firm sports bra must be used. During the first four weeks after the operation, no sport should be practised. Heavy lifting should also be avoided. For her own safety, after the operation, the patient receives an implant pass for emergencies.

Breast Lifting

As a result of weight gain or loss, after pregnancies and nursing periods but also through the natural ageing process, the female breast is subject to changes. The connective tissue loses elasticity and the breast tissue sags. The result is a pendulous breast with which very few women feel comfortable. Today, however, women are no longer obliged to settle for this.

A breast lifting is not a particularly serious intervention. Through an operation, the pendulous breast is relieved of excess skin. The sagging breast tissue is lifted and superfluous skin removed. If only a small amount of breast tissue is still available, a supplementary implant can be made. This restores its original and natural, rounded and firm form.

The operation lasts from two to three hours and is undertaken under a general anaesthetic. A two-day inpatient stay is necessary. After the operation, the wound is sewn up with self dissolving stitches. A bandage must be worn for around five days which can then be exchanged for a firm sports bra. After a breast lifting as well, no sports should be played for the first four weeks and heavy lifting should be avoided at all costs. Direct exposure to sunlight or even to a solarium are equally taboo during the first weeks after the operation.

A breast lifting improves the general sense of well-being of patients and often their self-confidence as well.

Breast Reduction

It is not always a breast which is too small or a drooping breast which generates a desire for a breast operation. In many cases, patients wish to reduce breasts which are much too big.

An excessively large bust causes problems for many women, both psychologically and physically. Affected women are uncomfortable with the stares which they receive and also notice an effect on their physical health, since back problems are usually a logical consequence of excessively large breasts. A breast reduction can provide relief here.

The operation is evidently preceded by an extensive advisory discussion in which the surgeon checks the anatomical preconditions and the patient has an opportunity to discuss her wishes and perceptions.

In a breast reduction, fatty and excess skin tissue are removed. Gland bodies are reduced and reformed and the nipples are brought into a new, anatomically appropriate position. The operation is evidently carried out under a general anaesthetic and must be followed by an inpatient stay of around two days. A bandage is applied for five days, which can then be replaced by a sports bra, which must be worn for the next four weeks. Sport and other bodily exertions must be avoided at all costs during the first four weeks.
