  • Breast hypertrophy in relation to morphology
  • Sagging and/or asymmetric breasts

Indirect correction of: 

  • Neck, shoulder and back pain
  • Discomfort during certain activities (sport, maceration of sub-mammary folds)

The surgical intervention

The incisions performed make it possible to remove excess skin.

  • Removing the excess mammary gland and remodelling the breast tissue ensure that the resulting breasts are maintained.
  • Vertical or inverted T-shaped scar as indicated.
  • Wearing a sports bra after surgery.

Post-operative pain is relatively reduced Temporary swelling is often observed.

Patients will then have more aesthetic breasts, better suited to their morphology and daily activities. In order to be fully satisfied, a period of 3 to 6 months is necessary for the tissues to regain their suppleness and for the scars to fade.

Quitting smoking at least 2 months before the operation is mandatory in order to prevent predictable complications. Your surgeon will also review your general health with you in detail in order to minimise the risks of the surgical intervention as much as possible.
