Female breast with hand on her chest

Breast lift with implant

Many women want a firmer and fuller breast again, particularly after prologed breastfeeding or significant weight loss. A breast lift combined with an implant gives you new appreciation for your body and a renewed sense of self-confidence.

Due to aging, pregnancy or major weight loss, many women suffer from sagging breasts. If the overstretched skin is no longer elastic or if the areolas are no longer in the right position, a breast lift with implants is a useful solution.

The combined procedure is formally known as an “augmentation mastopexy”. To make the breast look as natural as possible after breast surgery, the silicone implant is individually adjusted to the chest.

Breast lift with implant —
your path to a new sense of self-confidence

A breast lift with an implant ensures a beautiful, firm and youthful breast. The best way to see what your breast might look like after an augmentation with implants is with a 3D simulation.

Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch, your breast augmentation specialist in Switzerland, photographs you from all sides and then shows you how to get beautiful, firm and natural-looking breasts. At home, you can access the images at any time with a password to view and discuss them with a person you trust.

Frequently asked questions

Are the nipples “shifted”?

As a result of the tissue and skin removal, the position of the nipples changes. In order to achieve an appealing, aesthetic result, the areola is adjusted in relation to the new breast and the nipple is raised to a new position without affecting sensitivity.

When will I be able to exercise again?

After six to eight weeks, operation incisions have largely healed and you can slowly resume physical activity. You can engage in light exercise, such as walking or cycling, around four weeks after surgery. Strength training, jogging andswimming can only be resumed again after eight weeks.


How long will I be unable to work?

Depending on your profession, you can expect to be unable to work for approximately seven days. If you have a job involving heavy physical labor, you may be unable to work for up to four weeks.

Does health insurance pay for this procedure?

The costs of a breast lift are not covered by health insurance, as it is a purely aesthetic procedure. For patients who are having a medically necessary breast reduction surgery performed at the same time, cost sharing or even reimbursement by health insurance is possible.

What are the risks of a breast lift?

In principle, every operation involves certain risks (e.g. drug intolerance, bruises, wound healing disorders, inflammation or scarring). They also depend on the individual's state of health. The doctor will inform you and discuss possible risks with you as part of the consultation and preparation session.

Is it possible to breastfeed after a breast lift?

Yes, a breast lift does not impact your ability to breastfeed.

Does a breast lift leave visible scars?

The incision runs around the areola and below it vertically. Another incision along the natural breast fold is also required. The extent to which these incisions remain visible depends on the individual, genetically caused scar formation. Breast lift surgery usually leaves behind fine, light scars that are only marginally visible.

Do I have to tell you if I am taking medication?

It is extremely important that you always inform the treating doctor about any illnesses and medications you are taking. You should cease taking any blood-thinning medications (aspirin, aspegic or omega-3 fatty acids) two weeks before the procedure. Such medications can cause increased bleeding during surgery and delay the subsequent healing process. The doctor may decide not to perform a planned operation at any time if the surgical risk is increased as a result of the prior use of medication.
