Breast Surgeries and Breast Corrections

Breast corrections and breast surgeries are procedures such as breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift and gynecomastia. Breast surgeries are among the most commonly performed surgeries. In most cases, they serve the desire for more attractiveness and self-esteem. A breast that does not correspond to one’s own ideals can disturb the personally perceived appearance of the body. Whether too small or too large, hanging or asymmetrical breasts or malformations of the nipple – the reasons for their own dissatisfaction with the breast are diverse and individual.


Diseases such as tumors can also be the cause of breast corrections and breast surgery. Irrespective of the causes or the personal motives – today, the various methods of esthetic breast surgery can help in most cases. Find out more about breast correction options at the Mainz Fontana Clinic.

Breast surgeries the methods:

The five main types of breast surgery are the enlargement, reduction and firming (mammapexy/ breast pexia) of the female breast. Added to this is the replacement of implants. As well as in the male the removal of female breast tissue: called gynecomastia. The methods are summarized below. If you click on the headlines, you will come to the deeper explanations.

Breast augmentation using modern implants

Breast augmentation can be an important issue in women for a variety of reasons – causes are often unfavorable breast shape, rapid and severe weight loss, or genetic connective tissue weakness. In our clinic, we rely on the most modern surgical techniques, our years of experience and the latest generation of silicone implants. These silicone-shell implants differ only in the ingredient consisting of either a leak-proof silicone cohesive gel or a physiological saline solution. During the surgery, we look for a incision that leaves small and unobtrusive scars – but of course we discuss all important factors together with you at the beginning of the treatment. With the aid of breast augmentation in our Mainz Beauty Clinic, you can realize your individual ideas of a female breast shape and size.

Breast augmentation with autologous fat

Some women only want a moderate enlargement of their breasts. About a cup size, not much more. If you also have a fat pad that you want to get rid of, autograft breast augmentation is an interesting alternative to classic breast surgery. Breast augmentation with autologous fat replaces breast surgery in the sense. It is replaced by a combination of liposuction and breast injection to increase volume. Concretely, fat cells, e.g. gently sucked from the belly, hips or butt, are being processed and immediately injected into the breast. Whether this, also called natural breast augmentation, method is suitable for you and where you want to lose some fat, you can discuss with one of our experts at the Fontana clinic. Together we will find a good solution.

Breast Reduction – Preventing Physical Pain

Although a large and shapely breast is actually considered a female beauty ideal, breasts that are too large can quickly become a burden. Then a breast reduction can help. Sometimes physical complaints occur, such as posture or tension in the shoulder and head area, but also headaches. This not only restricts the physical activity of the affected women, but may also develop into a heavy psychological burden. In these cases, it makes sense to perform a breast reduction and thus to improve the individual body feeling. A comprehensive pre-examination excludes illnesses and prepares you for the operation. In this there are different ways of incision, which can be applied depending on the initial situation. Of course, you will be told by your treating physician which method is suitable for you. If you have any questions, please contact our trained practice team.

Breast lift for a more positive attitude to life

As you get older, the skin loses its elasticity, which can be particularly noticeable in breasts due to pregnancy and lactation. Most women find this aging symptom as unpleasant and no longer feel comfortable in their skin. With an operative breast lift, we can raise and reshape the chest in the Fontana clinic. Depending on the condition and many other individual factors, we make an incision that leaves small and largely inconspicuous scars. Our methods are particularly efficient, safe and low in complications, so that we always achieve very good results. Talk to us about your wishes and questions with us and trust our years of experience in the field of breast lift.

Gynecomastia: Breast reduction for men

In some men, the male mammary gland is enlarged for reasons unfortunately not yet completely clarified and therefore produces a female-appearing breast. Many men suffer from this appearance, which however can be corrected thanks to a safe surgical procedure. In so-called gynecomastia, we use small incisions to remove excess mammary tissue and thus tighten the man’s breast. If necessary, this procedure can also be combined with liposuction. Whether this combination treatment makes sense in your particular case and what needs to be respected in your treatment, you will learn in a first treatment interview. Through a gynecomastia surgery, you can get back a positive attitude to life and feel completely comfortable in your own body again.
