The chest is the symbol of femininity. They make us feel feminine and desirable. While some women are perfectly happy with their breasts, for others, breasts represent a real complex. If they’re too small or too big, it can be difficult to find lingerie or a swimsuit in the right size.

Other flaws can also trigger the desire for cosmetic breast surgery: sagging breasts, empty breasts, asymmetrical breasts, breasts damaged by pregnancy, breasts that are too pear-shaped, breasts that are too soft, breasts that are not firm enough… few women really like their breasts.

The often-desired and dreamed-of ideal, the famous firm, natural 85C that doesn’t sag, is the source of many requests for cosmetic breast surgery in Paris. The temptation is always great to compare one’s breasts with those of one’s friends and to browse through before-and-after photos of reshaped breasts. But every patient and every breast is unique.

What are the different types of cosmetic breast surgery?

Between breast ptosis with prosthesis, without prosthesis, breast implants (round, anatomical, in front of or behind the muscle, in dual plane, of such and such a volume…), recent techniques of fat transfer (breast lipofilling), scars at the areola, in the sub mammary fold, in the armpit, vertical or T-shaped, it is becoming more and more difficult for patients to find their way around as there are so many techniques.

In reconstruction as in aesthetics, opinions differ and each case is different. The most frequent requests concern breast augmentation using breast implants. This is followed by breast reductions for breasts that are too heavy, often causing back discomfort (dorsalgia), and then prosthesis cures, which involve lifting the breasts. Breast plastic surgery can also be used to correct malformations, tuberous breasts, breast asymmetry, an invaginated nipple or Poland syndrome.

Breast enlargement

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, particularly in Paris. It is suitable for anyone wishing to correct the appearance of their breasts. Breast augmentation can be performed with or without breast implants.

  • With breast implants: breast augmentation with prostheses is the most common method of cosmetic breast surgery performed at our clinic in Paris. This procedure allows you to choose the shape and size of your breasts, while achieving a natural result. It involves placing breast implants in the breasts to give them volume and reshape them. Several types of prosthesis exist to give the breasts the volume and shape they need (round, anatomical, soft, firm, smooth, microtextured, etc.). In the case of associated breast ptosis, various techniques can be used to tighten the skin while increasing the volume of the breasts. The operation lasts between 45 minutes and 2 hours. A short hospital stay is required. Results are visible immediately after cosmetic breast surgery. However, it is necessary to wait 3 months to observe a final result.
  • Sans implants mammaires : la chirurgie esthétique des seins sans implants consiste à réaliser un lipofilling. Le lipofilling, aussi appelé lipostructure, liposculpture, ou lipomodelage, est une technique d’augmentation mammaire qui repose sur un transfert de graisse. En réinjectant la propre graisse de la patiente dans les seins, cette intervention permet d’obtenir une augmentation mammaire naturelle. En effet, l’injection de graisse permet d’avoir un résultat très naturel aussi bien sur le plan visuel qu’au toucher. Le lipofilling est sans cicatrices, et ne nécessite pas l’insertion d’un corps étranger. Il est associé à une liposuccion, permettant d’améliorer par la même occasion les contours esthétiques de la silhouette. Le lipofilling est idéal pour procéder à une augmentation des seins modérée. Il permet également d’améliorer les contours, le galbe et la texture d’une augmentation mammaire par prothèse.

Breast Ptosis

With age, after pregnancy or after significant weight loss, the breasts can lose their firmness and sag. Surgery to correct breast ptosis is a proposed solution for lifting the breasts and tightening the skin. When the volume of the breasts is sufficient, and there is no need for an implant, a mastopexy without implant, removing only the excess skin, can be performed. If the volume of the breasts is insufficient, it is possible to opt for a breast lift with implants.

Whether with or without implants, mastopexy is performed under general anaesthetic in the operating theatre. The result is visible immediately and can be fully appreciated from the end of the first month.

Breast reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is part of breast cancer treatment. After non-conservative breast surgery, breast reconstruction adds volume and shape to the missing breast. After discussion with the surgeon, several solutions may be proposed to the patient. These may include the fitting of a prosthesis, an expander, an inflatable prosthesis, lipofilling, lipomodelling, fat transfer or a flap of large dorsal muscle. If the patient so wishes, reconstruction of an aureole and nipple can be considered.

Breast reduction

Breasts can be a source of complexes, but they can also be an obstacle to well-being. Overly large breasts can be the source of many physical problems. Breast hypertrophy is often accompanied by breast ptosis. Breast reduction can be considered from the end of puberty. It consists of reducing the volume of the breasts to make them more in harmony with the rest of the figure. This operation is performed under general anaesthetic and lasts between 1 and 2 hours on average.

How much does a breast lift cost?

The price of cosmetic breast surgery in Paris depends on the patient’s profile, the operation performed and the location of the operation (clinic or hospital). Other factors can also affect the price of breast surgery in Paris: the type of implants used, the duration of the operation, the surgical technique used, and whether or not part of the operation is covered by the health insurance, particularly in the case of reconstructive surgery.

When is the best time for a breast lift?

Techniques to cure breast ptosis can be considered from the end of growth and throughout a woman’s life. Breast enhancement can be carried out after pregnancy, in cases where the development of breast volume during pregnancy, hormonal imbalances and prolonged breastfeeding have caused breast ptosis. For many women, skin ageing and weight changes may be responsible for breast ptosis and lead to breast enhancement.
