“Plastic surgery requires a high degree of technical skills to complete the full reconstruction of form and function. But more importantly, plastic surgery requires an imaginative mind to be able to see the likely outcome before the commencement of the surgery, making it both challenging and satisfying.”

Breast Lift |
Women seek breast surgery for a number of personal reasons. But mostly they desire to reverse any changes in their shape and seek a firmer and more youthful look.
A breast lift or mastopexy is a surgical procedure that enhances or restores the shape as well as the volume of sagging breasts caused by ageing, pregnancy, or excess weight fluctuations.
The procedure frequently involves removing excess skin along with elevating the breast tissue and nipple-areola complex, leaving your breasts with a more youthful and contoured appearance. You may also opt to include breast implants in combination with the breast lift to achieve a fuller and defined cleavage.
There will be scarring and its length and visibility will depend on the type of breast lift [lollipop, anchor or donut lift]. Adhesive tape will also be used to support the suture lines for a minimum of two weeks. The incisions, however, are thin and the fine scar tissue will flatten and lighten to pink then white within several months or up to a year after the procedure [subject to your skin condition].
Our laser clinic offers a complimentary post-recovery CARE program which includes LED light therapy and advanced laser treatments to minimise scarring.
DOWNTIME: Overnight surgery RECOVERY TIME: Initially 48 hours after surgery. You will be required to wear a support bra for approximately six weeks while the swelling remains and during the healing process.
