Breast Mastopexy

Women seek breast surgery for a number of personal reasons but mostly they desire to reverse any changes in their shape that have taken place over time.

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, with the procedure leaving you with a firmer and more youthful look.

The surgery 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.
