The FEMMA-S pectoral sling procedure allows patients with low, droopy breasts to achieve the look of a supported breast without an implant. Beautiful projection and cleavage are achieved using nothing but the patient’s own tissue.

What happens during the FEMMA-S procedure?

The FEMMA-S procedure is often done on an outpatient basis. Each patient is different, and surgery ranges between 1 and 3 hours. A minor breast lift only requires a local anesthetic, while those with more severe cases may be placed under a general anesthetic.

Unlike conventional techniques, the FEMMA-S breast lift utilizes the patient’s own tissue in order to add fullness to the superior pole of the breast, perfect cleavage, and contour a shape that appears enhanced rather than reduced. The breast is rotated upwards by reusing excess tissue (which is typically thrown away in a regular breast lift surgery). The excess tissue is placed under the pectoralis major muscle, which adds fullness to the top of the breast and creates a natural, beautiful-looking breast. The FEMMA-S technique uses strategically placed incisions that hide all scarring.


A breast lift typically requires several weeks for recovery, although you may be required to limit activity for up to six weeks. Bruising, pain, and swelling are common after surgery, but can usually be managed with light pain medication. Scars fade over time, and many patients report a small change in nipple sensation.
