Breast lift


With increasing age, after pregnancies or strong weight fluctuations, the female breast loses fullness, shape and elasticity. A breast lift is one way to restore this.

Possibilities of a breast lift:

Breast lift without implants if there is sufficient breast tissue
Breast lift with simultaneous breast augmentation with an implant
Breast lift in the course of breast reduction


Many patients have the desire for firm, toned breasts after pregnancy or heavy weight loss. In a comprehensive initial consultation we clarify whether your wish coincides with the medical and technical possibilities – we must have a common goal. With the help of state-of-the-art 3D simulation, you can see what the breast may look like after the lift. If you have decided on a lift with an implant, you can compare the sizes of the implants and see how your desired breast could look after the operation. You get personal access to your simulations and can even access them from anywhere using your smartphone. This allows you to discuss a possible outcome with your partner or confidant in a very realistic way.


With the right surgical technique and the right implant, I can achieve a beautiful and natural result. The breast is lifted, sagging glandular tissue is put back in the right place, the excess skin is removed and the nipple is lifted. The result is a fuller and firmer décolleté.

There are two types of application techniques:

  • The first technique is called the “periareolar incision technique”. Here, an incision is made around the areola. In this way, the areola can be reduced in size and proportionally adapted to the breast size. This technique is suitable if there is little excess skin and the breast is only moderately pendulous.
  • Another technique is called “tightening with a T-cut”. Here the incisions run around the areola, straight down into the underbust crease and horizontally in the breast crease. This technique is used for reductions or when there is more sagging skin and breast tissue.

We decide together which technique is right for you individually depending on the extent of the lift. A lift restores shape, but fullness can only be restored through volume.


The breast lift procedure takes place in Vienna in a day clinic and under general anaesthesia. My claim: precision and safety during the operation. I have over 13 years of experience in breast surgery and have performed over 1000 operations. The well-rehearsed surgical team is complemented by experienced anaesthetists who will look after you safely during the entire procedure. An overnight stay in the clinic is rarely necessary nowadays for medical reasons. Our patients are happy to stay overnight if the journey is long or if you simply want a night’s rest from everyday life. You will be fit for social life after 1-2 days and for work after 1 to 2 weeks, but you should refrain from sporting activities and rest for the first 6 weeks. For optimal results, a sports bra will be fitted after the operation and should be worn for six weeks. Proper scar care is very important and ensures an improved, beautiful skin appearance.

If you are prone to increased scarring, we can treat this with laser and medical needling (cost € 90,- per session).

My team and I are always available for you should you have any questions. You can always reach me on my mobile number after the operation, even at night. Further check-up appointments in my surgery are important in order to optimally accompany the healing process and will be arranged with you before the operation.

After a successful operation and waiting for the healing process, you will have no pain, can breastfeed and do sports without any problems.



From now on, you can easily create the 3D simulation of your breast yourself from home:
