Breast Lift

Over the course of time a woman’s breasts often change. There are many factors that can influence these changes. Many women experience a loss of youthful shape and firmness to the breasts, and loss of skin elasticity. The causes of this include; pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight fluctuations such as weight loss and weight gain, ageing and natural gravity, heredity and genes also have a lot to answer for.

At Secret Surgery Ltd, we understand how breasts that have lost their once firm uplifted contours can have a negative effect on a woman’s self-confidence and self-image.

For women seeking to restore the firmness and shape of their breasts, a Breast Lift Procedure medically known as a Mastopexy may be a good option.

A Breast Lift operation performed by our skilled cosmetic surgeons in Poland will raise and firm the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola (the pigmented skin surrounding the nipples) can become enlarged over time; a Breast Lift will reduce this appearance as well.

A Breast Lift can rejuvenate the female figure by giving a profile that is more youthful, uplifted and firm. Breast Lift Surgery is an ideal choice for women who wish to improve the shape and the position of their breasts, where an increase in volume and size is desired Breast Implants may also be inserted in conjunction with a Breast Lift.
