With age, weight loss, pregnancies and infant feeding, the shape of your breasts have changed. Your breasts may lose their firmness and their elasticity. Some muscles exercises, massages or cream will not bring great results.

Breast lift is ideal if you want to improve the shape and firmness of your breasts. Surgical correction, on the other hand, helps to lift sagging or soft breasts.

If the breasts also lack volume, it will be possible to combine a breast lift with the insertion of a breast prosthesis. Correction of the areola or nipple may also be considered.

During our meeting, we will answer all of your questions about this intervention, which will allow you to bring a more youthful and toned appearance to your breasts.


There are different technologies that exist in order to achieve a breast lift. According to your kind of breast, a specific technology will be more appropriate than another. The task of the plastic surgeon is to make the scars the most discreet possible and the breasts with the best shape.

Breast lift happens under general anesthesia and lasts approximately 3 hours.

The surgeon may choose between several kinds of incisions: he makes a first incision around of the areola and / or a second, following a vertical line, from the areola to the fold bottom of the breast , and / or a third horizontal incision in the folds under the breasts, according to the excess of skin to be treated . Excess of skin (and eventually of fat and glandular) is removed so that the nipple and areola remain in contact with the glandular tissue and are repositioned higher. The skin located above the nipple is tightened below the nipple, in order to create a new breast shape.

What does this procedure consist of?

During the procedure, an incision will be made to remove the excess skin. The best type of incision will be made based on your chest, whether it is a vertical incision, around the nipple, or in the shape of a boat anchor. Once the excess skin has been removed, Dr. Coeugniet will be able to reposition the gland and the nipple to ensure perfect aesthetics.

Will the scars be visible?

The healing process takes some time. Besides, you will only see the final result after a full year. For two months after the procedure, your scars will be red. Then, over the months, they will gradually fade away and become more and more discreet. You can enhance healing by applying vitamin E every day, starting in the fourth week.

How will the days after the operation unfold?

After the operation, bandages will cover your chest. They will be removed during the postoperative visit, 5 or 10 days after surgery. Your breasts will be swollen and may bruise for the first two weeks. For six weeks, it is best to wear non-wired bras or camisoles with a built-in bra.

Should I plan for a recovery period?

You can return to work about a week or two after the procedure, but you may have to wait up to four weeks if your job requires physical labor. Physical activities can be gradually resumed about three weeks later.
