“Let us rejoice and be glad in thee: let us love thy breasts above thy wine: let righteousness love thee.”
Even the Bible in the famous “Song of Songs” praises the female breast with words of immense admiration. Also, many masterpieces of painting depict the mystery and power of the female breast.
If you are a “mature” woman, if you have had one or more pregnancies or a lot of weight loss you may have noticed that your breasts do not look as youthful as before. Your skin may not be as firm, gravity may have taken its toll and the result may not be attractive.
There is a way to turn “the clock back” and it is called “breast lift plastic surgery“, which can be combined – for more volume – with a silicone insert for simultaneous breast lift and augmentation. It is one of the most impressive plastic surgery procedures!
What is a breast lift?
Η breast lift also known as mastopexy or (breast lift) is the procedure in which surgery is performed on the empty and slightly drooping breast to create a new shape with a youthful and “full” image.
The main causes of breast sagging are gravity and time (as the woman ages). Pregnancies, breastfeeding, reduction in skin elasticity and weight loss also affect the appearance of the breasts.
Breast lift is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures. Last year in the U.S. 70,000 such procedures were performed, a 70% increase from 2000.

At the initial visit, a detailed description of the patient’s expectations for the desired result is made. The doctor then goes on to explain in detail what is feasible and realistic to do and what is not, as well as what techniques exist, their advantages and disadvantages and what is best for each. Smoking cessation is recommended at least 2 weeks before the surgery.
They should be reported to the doctor:

I had the abdominoplasty procedure with excellent results. My belly became like a teenager’s! Thanks to my doctor who, with this operation, raised my morale as a woman!!
I have been very pleased with my eyelid surgery. Wonderful and excellent work. I recommend Mr. Triantafyllou unreservedly. A thousand thanks.
The blepharoplasty did not cause me any pain, neither during the surgery nor afterwards. Excellent result by Mr. Triantaphyllos!
The liposuction I did was a great success. The result was excellent, taking years off my appearance!
Thank you very much for giving me back my face after a serious car accident. I am grateful for all the help you have given me.
Many thanks from me and my wife for your services in successfully removing the excess lipids from her legs. Before we visited you my wife’s psychology was very bad as a doctor had completely discouraged us.
The result after blepharoplasty surgery compensates even the most demanding ones. Reduces at least ten (10) years from the actual age!!!
An excellent doctor who knows how to do his job very well, with knowledge, experience and a lot of love for what he does. A wonderful man!
I trusted Mr. Triantafyllou for the cosmetic surgery I wanted to have and it was the wisest decision I have ever made! 20 days after the surgery and I already feel that my life has changed! I thank him from the bottom of my heart!
