But maybe it’s not really the size of your breasts that’s the problem? Maybe you’re much unhappier with the fact that your breasts have become saggy after one or more pregnancies or significant weight loss? Or has age reduced your breasts’ perkiness and volume?
If any of this applies to you, sport won’t help solve the problem. That means that a breast lift is the best option to get you feeling much better without a lot of effort.

During a breast lift, our specialist removes excess skin with the patient under general anaesthesia and then reshape the breast. There are three different scar shapes in total: 1. Only around the nipple – 2. Around the nipple and then straight down to the inframammary line (I incision) – 3. In addition to the I incision, another scar along the inframammary line (reverse T incision).
Before getting a breast lift
We recommend a gynaecological examination and (if applicable) ultrasound or mammography.
After getting a breast lift, you should wear a special compression bra for about 6 weeks. The suture material we use is self-dissolving and does not need to be removed. You do need to plan a few days’ break from work/daily life after the operation and expect to attend regular check-ups of the wound over the first 4–6 weeks. You also should not do any sports like jogging or tennis for the first 4–6 weeks.
Implants are used to increase the volume of the breast. However, if the breast sags too far (breast ptosis), then a breast lift should be performed at the same time. Above all, this improves the long-term effect of the procedure.
If you were able to breastfeed before the operation, then you can assume that you will also be able to do so after the breast lift. In very rare cases, your ability to breastfeed may be negatively impacted after the operation.
This is probable if you were able to breastfeed before the operation.
Yes, this is possible. Even after an operation, your breasts will change over time. In rare cases, you may need to undergo an additional breast lift. Repeat lifts are possible. However, the surgeon should be fully informed of the previous surgical methods.
Breast lifts can be performed as outpatient or inpatient procedures (1–2 nights’ stay for the latter). We recommend an inpatient stay at the Difine Clinic of one day. The next day, our specialist will check up on you and drain fluids if necessary. Afterwards, you are free to go home. Regular post-operative check-ups take place at Difine.
That depends on the extent of the operation. Usually, you will be able to work again after 1–2 weeks.
After the operation, you will receive a support bra to wear for approximately 4–6 weeks. During this time, you should avoid strenuous physical labour or lifting heavy objects.
You can make an arrangement to pay for your cosmetic treatment in monthly instalments with many different banks or financing partners. We recommend exploring different options from your own bank or financing partner such as Medipay or Medkred well in advance. Financing is usually only possible if you reside in Germany, are employed or have an employed guarantor, are a pensioner with a regular income and have no negative entries on your SCHUFA credit report. We’re happy to discuss this topic with you in a personal consultation.
