BREAST LIFT: MASTOPEXY IN KASSEL
Women are not always dissatisfied with the size of their breasts. Often pregnancies, increasing age and weight loss leave traces on the tissue of the female breast. Sagging breasts can be particularly problematic if infections and inflammations form in the folds under the breast because the sweat cannot dry. In plastic and aesthetic surgery, a breast lift can be performed here. The basic volume remains the same. In the case of large breasts, however, this operation can also be combined with breast reduction. Breast lift surgery is also called mastopexy.

Your specialist for plastic and aesthetic surgery
Prof. Ernst Magnus Noah, MD is a specialist in plastic and aesthetic surgery in Kassel. Before Prof. Dr. Noah set up his own practice, he was the head physician of a clinic department for plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery for many years. Due to his extensive experience, he is a specialist in breast surgery such as breast lifting, breast augmentation and Breast reduction. Use his experience and skills for your breast correction.
Breast lift procedure at the Noahklinik Kassel
At the beginning, our plastic surgeon will have a detailed consultation with you. In particular, we will clarify whether the volume of the breast should also be changed. In order to be able to estimate the result of the operation, Prof. Dr. Noah offers you the possibility of a 3D simulation in his practice in Kassel. In this way you can get an idea of the result in advance.
The specialist chooses the surgical method depending on the patient's wishes and the condition of the skin. Family planning should already be completed, as pregnancy ensures that the breast will become larger again. Depending on the tissue, in the worst case scenario, a tubular breast will exist again afterwards. The incision technique is similar to that of a breast reduction.
Breast lift methods
Breast lift using the I-technique
In this operation - also called the Lejour method - the plastic and aesthetic surgeon makes an incision around the nipple and from there vertically downwards to the crease under the breast. Excess skin can then be carefully removed. This procedure is suitable if there is little excess skin. Finally, it may be advisable to reduce the nipple a little to achieve an aesthetic result. The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and takes between two and three hours.
T-cut - for a toned bust
With this type of breast lift, the doctor makes the I-technique incision a few centimetres further in the underbust crease. In this way, a lot of sagging skin can also be removed. The nipple is repositioned and the suture is closed. This surgical procedure is also performed under a general anaesthetic.
Autoprosthesis: Breast lift in the inner bra
Our experienced specialist Prof. Dr. Noah works with the so-called autoprosthesis as part of the breast lift. This is a way of giving the breast support from the inside as well and at the same time providing a beautiful, full décolleté.
The prerequisite for this procedure is that there is sufficient breast tissue. During the operation, this tissue is moved back upwards by the plastic surgeon. In this way, an implant can be dispensed with and yet the breast regains more volume in the upper area. Thanks to this procedure, the result of the breast lift often lasts longer, as not only the skin tightened on the outside provides support for the breast, but also the breast and glandular tissue on the inside due to the lifting. The procedure requires know-how and a lot of practice. You are in competent and safe hands with our plastic and aesthetic surgeon Prof. Dr. Noah.
Combination with autologous fat
A very elegant method is the combination of lifting with autologous fat. For this, fat is suctioned from problem areas and then used for fine modelling after the lifting.
Aftercare after breast lift
After the breast lift you will stay in the clinic for one to two nights. Already here you will receive a special sports bra or compression bra that protects and supports the breast. This takes the tension off the tissue and the sutures and stimulates the lymphatic activity. Take it easy on yourself even when you are at home. This means no sports, sauna and sunbathing for up to six weeks after the operation. Avoid lifting heavy objects and stretching your arms above your head in the beginning. The methods of aesthetic and plastic surgery are now very gentle, but it is still an operation that is strenuous for the body.
In any case, make sure you attend the check-up appointments with your doctor. This way we can deal with any abnormalities or difficulties in the healing process immediately and take countermeasures. As soon as the small wounds have healed, you can start with scar care. In this way you support the body in healing and the subsequent scars are usually hardly visible.
