Dr. Blaschke's preferred method keeps the scars as short as ever as possible. With little tissue excess, the scar can be kept around he nipple, with bigger excess a vertical component is added. The inframammary horizontal scar is obsolete.
The removal of breast tissue is essentially in the lower half and laterally, which should preserve a full cleavage.
The operation is performed under general anaesthesia. Excess skin is removed around the nipple. The part of the gland situated below the nipple is partially or wholly removed. The remainder of the breast is reshaped and secured with sutures if necessary. The skin is closed in a pleating manner to achieve a short scar. A supportive dressing concludes the operation. After one or two nights in a private hospital under our care, you will be discharged with a light dressing and a special bra.
You are seen by Dr. Blaschke and his team for regular checks. All sutures should be removed within 10 days. You should be able to resume normal activities in a week's time, carrying and lifting must however be avoided for 3 weeks. The final shape should be reached after 3 months.
The internal shift of breast tissue under the position of greatest projection works like a natural implant and gives you a young shape with minimal scarring.
