Dr.Blaschke's preferred method keeps the scars as short as ever possible. With little tissue excess, the scar can be kept around he nipple, with bigger excess a vertical component is added. The inframmary horizontal scar is obsolete. He tends to add an "internal implant", shaping your own tissue like a prosthesis to create the highest projection under the nipple. If the overall volume is too small, a silicone implant can be used.
The operation is performed under general anaesthesia. The incision leads around the nipple and down to the inframammary fold if necessary. The skin around the nipple is removed, the nipple is shifted upwards and breast tissue is placed into a position, where it provides the greatest projection. A supportive dressing is applied and you spend one night in a private hospital under our care. The next morning you leave with a spοrts bra to protect the breast. Dr. Blaschke and his team will see you for regular checks. All nonresorbable suture material will be removed by 10 days. Normal activities can be resumed within one week. Lifting or carrying should be avoided for 3 weeks.
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.
