“After giving birth to two children and a few years later, there was not much left of my breasts. I was ashamed of my sagging breasts. This breast lift was a huge relief for me.”

Frequently asked Questions

When can I go home after surgery?

A breast lift is a procedure where you stay overnight in the clinic. The next morning you can go home. You will be wearing a sports bra, which you should wear day and night for six weeks.

Do I have to worry about ugly scars?

There are always scars after a breast lift. My aim is to make them as invisible as possible. I will arrange that the scars get into the crease of your breast. You will hardly see any of it. An exception to this is the Benelli lift, where you only get a scar around the nipples. In the beginning the scars will be visible. In time they will fade.

When will the scars be healed?

I do my very best to let the scars disappear. At first the scars will be red and swollen. This will disappear after a few weeks. In time the scars will fade more and more. After a year and a half, the scars will have come to rest completely.

Does the insurance reimburse this procedure?

A breast lift will not be reimbursed by the health insurance. You will have to bear the costs yourself.

Plastic surgeon

Doctor Xander R. Bakker

I am an experienced plastic surgeon, specialized in cosmetic surgery. I have been working as a plastic surgeon since 2005. For a long time, I have been working as an all-round plastic surgeon in several leading hospitals. Therefore, I have gained a lot of experience. Plastic surgery of the face has always had my special attention.

My work requires a personal and tailor-made approach. This is what makes my work so fascinating. Every time I ask myself: ‘Will I be able to bring a change, which makes the patient happier?’ It is always great when this is possible, but sometimes it also means saying ‘no’.

I focus completely on aesthetic plastic surgery. My areas of interest are the face, breast corrections, liposuction and lipofilling of the face and body. By attending many international conferences and courses I stay up-to-date. This way you can be assured that I always deliver state-of-the-art work.
