Pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss and general aging can all affect the firmness of our breasts. Breasts naturally descend as our skin and breast tissue looses its elasticity and firmness. For many women, drooped breasts can negatively impact their body image. Breast lift surgery can help restore balance to the shape and firmness of the breasts.

Our team of highly skilled professionals take every measure to ensure you’re fully informed and prepared for both pre- and post-surgical care.
How it works
The excess skin that is responsible for the drooping is surgically removed. An incision is made either around the areola, around the areola and down the breast (lollipop incision), or below the breast and over the chest. The desired tissue is removed or adjusted and the breast is lifted and reshaped. In some cases, to maximize fullness, a breast implant is placed. Dr. Nancy de Kleer and her team utilize the latest approaches and surgical techniques to achieve the best possible outcome.
Redness, swelling and bruising can occur around the surgical site, which can last for several days. Supportive garments and pain medication will help to relieve discomfort and support healing. Stitches will be removed within two to three weeks after surgery with breast placement and shape improving over time. There will be surgical scars after a breast lift procedure, but every measure is taken to minimize their visibility. Scars generally fade after several months but patients should expect residual scarring from this procedure. Dr. de Kleer will help you establish reasonable timelines and expectations for recovery. Regular work and social activities can be resumed within one to two weeks.
