Women most often experience breasts that have fallen and become “hanged” as aesthetically disruptive. Sometimes they can also cause difficulties in finding suitable clothes and hinder one in one’s daily life.
The breast lift surgery can solve these problems. Breast lift is a treatment that is performed to reduce suspension, whether it is a natural condition or a result of breastfeeding, weight reduction or age.
In a breast lift operation, excess skin is removed to raise and transform the breasts into finer and firmer form. At the same time, the size of the yard is usually reduced and it is moved upwards. Depending on whether the patient is satisfied with the existing volume in the breast or may wish to increase the volume of the breast in the form of a prosthesis, this may be an alternative. We at Gothenburg Laser & Aesthetics use laser technology in breast surgery, which means that you as a patient get a much nicer and less visible scar that bleeds less.
Afterwards it becomes easier to wear clothes and you may feel more satisfied with your appearance.
Before setting up on a breast lift, you must consult with one of our specialists in aesthetic surgery to obtain thorough information prior to any surgery. Pros and cons of different types of breast lift will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Anyone with any of the following problems may benefit from breast lift:
Breasts commuting and with warts and spring yard pointing downwards
Breasts lacking volume and stability
Skin irritation under the breasts
Dissatisfaction with the appearance of the breasts
Breast lifting can take place at any age after the breasts are fully developed at about the age of 20. However, breast lifting should not be done when planning to have children immediately.
It is better to wait as the breasts change their shape during breastfeeding. Over time, the appearance and shape of the breast changes – with many things, such as breastfeeding, weight loss, pregnancy and the like. A breast lift can again make the breasts firmer and give them a youthful appearance.
Which should not be operated?
Breast lift should not be performed on women who have untreated breast cancer or breast cancer precursors, active infection in the body, pregnancy or are breast-feeding.
Individuals with impaired immune system (ongoing chemotherapy or other medicines that lower the immune system).
Patients who have conditions that affect blood coagulation, wound healing, or have decreased blood supply to the breasts after previous surgery or radiotherapy may have an increased risk of complications and thus an increased risk of having unsatisfactory results.
In breast lifting, it is especially important to be completely smoke-free six weeks before surgery and until it is healed.
The patient must be at least 18 years of age so that growth is completed.
In some cases, a breast lift and breast reduction can be combined with other body surgical procedures. We discuss such issues at the first free consultation.

Before the operation
The first time you visit us you will meet an experienced information nurse who listens to your wishes, goes through the operation and answers your questions.
You will, among other things, get information about the procedure itself and what you can expect, what it costs and how long the waiting time is. You can also fill out a questionnaire about your health condition, any past illnesses and surgeries. We also talk about your expectations. This first visit is always free of charge.
If you choose to proceed, we will book an operating time and a consultation time with one of our plastic surgeons.
Consultation is important. We carefully review your health condition and any medicines you take. It provides an opportunity to talk extensively about all aspects of the operation. You can try a number of different types and models of implants with your plastic surgeon. The end goal is that the result is completely in line with your expectations.
It is good if you prepare for the surgery by staying in shape and finding out as much as possible about what applies before, during and after the surgery. For the operation to be as good as possible, you should be on a body mass index (BMI) below 30.
Smoking impairs the oxygen supply to the tissue and in turn delays the wound healing process. It also increases the risk of complications and you should therefore be smoke-free 6 weeks before surgery and until the wound is healed.
We are always on hand to answer your questions.
On the day of surgery, you will meet your surgeon. He / she photographs the area of operation if this is not done in conjunction with the consultation.
The procedure is done in local anesthesia in combination with a sedative. The surgery takes about 1-5 hours depending on which body part (s) you want to operate. You go home the same day.
that’s how it goes
If you want to book a time for surgery, you can do so after the consultation. Sometimes you want to think about the matter and then call and book a time. Once you have decided and booked an operation time you will receive information material from us. There is comprehensive information and instructions about the procedure and what to think about before, during and after the clinic stay.
Prior to surgery
On the day of surgery, you meet your surgeon, who draws on you. You have the opportunity to ask additional questions if needed. You will be photographed.
The length of the operation depends on the procedure being performed as well as its extent. Prior to the surgery, you will receive pain relief for preventative purposes and also some sedative medicine. The procedure is then essentially painless either in local anesthesia or anesthesia.
If the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, you will be able to stand on your own legs and go home, but not drive your own car. Should you need to rest further at the clinic there is of course that possibility.
If the procedure is performed in anesthesia, you will be rested in one of our awakening rooms. Our employees will take good care of you so that you feel safe with us. It is important to keep in mind that you are not allowed to drive your car home after the procedure.
As a rule, prescription drugs such as Panodil and Ipren are sufficient as pain relief when you get home.
Before returning home, you will receive a return card with a telephone number to the clinic and to the plastic surgeon who has performed the operation so that you can reach us around the clock.
One of our nurses will call and hear how you feel 1-2 days after returning home.
After about 2 weeks you will return for a postoperative check. After a week most people can start working and after 3-6 weeks you can start exercising. Before that, we recommend quiet walks.
It is normal for the surgical areas to be swollen for a long time and in some cases it may take 2-3 months before all swelling has settled. Bruises in the skin are also common and harmless but take a few weeks before they fade. To reduce swelling, you should have compression straps in the areas after surgery, first time around the clock for about 4 weeks and then a few more days during the day. The compression treatment also contributes to a good result. Despite refined techniques in liposuction, irregularities and pitting can occur in the skin and this must be aware of. Before the operation, you and your surgeon must have carefully gone through expectations and realistic results.
If you live far from Gothenburg and thus have difficulties in coming to a doctor’s consultation, you can send photographs together with contact details and a description of your wishes. We will contact you for a telephone consultation as soon as the pictures have arrived at the clinic. You will find our email form on the website below contact us.
