Breast lift

About a breast lift

A breast lift is a common procedure in cosmetic surgery. During the operation, the breast is made to look younger and feel firmer. The surgery is called mastopexy and is performed on women whose breasts have started to hang. This is often the result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, old age and/or simply gravity! Pregnancy and an expansion of the breasts during breastfeeding causes the fibrous bonds that support the breasts tobreak off and stretch the skin.

Should you wish for more children, we advise you to postpone the operation, as there could be risks for a future pregnancy.

What happens during a breast lift

This treatment is also carried out under general anesthesia. The procedure most commonly performed consists in a keyhole incision. In this procedure, the incision is made in the skin around the areola with two diagonal downward incisions (i.e. in the form of a keyhole). The glandular tissue, fat and skin are all removed and the nipples repositioned. The skin is then pulled down from both sides of the breast and around the areola, forming the new curve of the breast.

The breast tissue and skin are sutured together, usually with soluble sutures. The scars have the shape of an anchor with a circle around the areola, vertically up to the fold below the breast and extending horizontally along the fold below the breast.

The result
We advise you to remain realistic and not expect perfection. Your surgeon should take a number of factors into account when assessing your mastopexy or breast reduction, such as:

•       your existing breasts;

•       the position of your nipples;

•       Your age;

•       Skin texture;

•       your own anatomy;

•       healing properties and your general health.

These will influence the outcome of your breast surgery.

Recovery after a breast lift

Depending on the extent of the operation, you may need a drain through the skin, but this can usually be removed within 24 hours. There will be a number of support bands or tape on the breasts, which can be replaced by a sports or surgical bra.

We expect you - depending on your job - to be able to resume your normal activities within two to four weeks. Please bear in mind that some occupations, for example physically demanding tasks, require a longer recovery period. If you are unable to stop working during the required period of recovery, you should postpone your operation to a more suitable time. This also applies to patients with strenuous hobbies (e.g. horse riding, gymnastics). Should there be complications, the period to refrain from such activities will be extended until you have fully recovered.


Normal things that can happen after an operation:

  • Bruises, especially around the scars
  • Temporary numbness 
  • Swelling, which will gradually decrease 
  • Mild pain, for which pain relief is prescribed

Safety through precautionary measures

The breasts will be firmly bandaged after the operation. The bandage can be removed after 48 hours. You will wear a special postoperative bra. Immediately after the operation.. This bra resembles a sports bra and gives your breasts the support they need. Wear this bra for as long as necessary.

Pain is moderate and can be easily controlled with pain medication. Sometimes drains are also inserted to drain wound fluid. For the first six weeks after the operation it is not recommended to lift your arms higher than your shoulders. Lifting and exercising are also not recommended. After those six weeks you can slowly start moving normally. However, make sure that your breasts are well supported.

Risks and complications

Like all surgeries, breast lifts involve risks and there is a risk of complications. The risks and complications include:

  • Unsightly scarring

  • Changes in (the sensation of) the nipple, temporarily or permanently
