Breast lift


Breast lift - before and after the procedure

One of extremely successful treatments performed by Dr Toncic and his team is breast lift operation. This procedure enables lifting of sagging breasts into normal, higher position. Small breasts can be both uplifted and augmented at the same time, using breast implants, meaning, breast uplift and breast augmentation can be performed at the same time.In our clinic we use the method of small vertical incision, due to the range of advantages it has: best aesthetic effect, quick recovery and simplicity of the technique. It carries less risk than classical operative techniques, and it takes less time for the operation. All these advantages make this method a favourite method in the clinic when it comes to breast uplift surgery.
Small vertical incision technique gives the best aesthetic effect possible, primarily because it leaves very small scar on the breasts. The scar is on the edge of the nipple, and thus invisible. Also, there is a small vertical scar (5-8cm) below the nipple, which fades with time and becomes barely noticeable. Classical inverted T incision technique leaves very big horizontal scars and this effect doesn’t allow women to wear low-cut dresses and shirts.
Putting enormous effort to enhance this operation and deal with the problem of the scars left after the surgery, Dr Toncic came across the method of so called small vertical incision ten years ago. This technique was popularized by Belgian surgeon Dr Lejour, and Dr Toncic was among the first surgeons worldwide, and definitely the first surgeon in Croatia, to start successfully and regularly using this method. After years of experience with this method, Dr Toncic has introduced some of his own improvements and modifications, thus remarkably enhancing the method.
Ten years after Dr Lejour published this method it has become a method of choice and the gold standard for female breast lift surgery.
Compared with the inverted T incision technique, vertical breast lift significantly improves breast projection and fullness.
Beside breast uplift operation using the technique of small vertical incision, if necessary, we can reduce the volume of breasts, thus performing the breast reduction surgery at the same time.


Before the surgery, our patient and surgeons meet for final preoperative consultation and medical examination. In order to achieve the maximum symmetry between the breasts, during the final preoperative examination, the surgeon makes a detailed and precise drawing on the patient’s breast. This is the point where Dr Toncic’s artistic experience and meticulousness are best shown. The drawing itself is an important orientation factor for the surgeon during the surgery, and as such it represents quite a big step on the way to the final success of the operation.

Besides the innovations in surgical techniques, Dr Toncic mostly relies on his sense of shaping – especially in breast uplift and breast reduction surgeries.
