Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy)
As we get older our breasts can lose their firmness and start to droop. Pregnancy and breastfeeding, weight loss, gravity and a loss of skin elasticity can all take their toll, resulting in breasts that have lost their youthful shape and fullness.
As a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, We are specialist in Breast Lift Surgery. With experience in a variety of Breast Lift Surgery techniques, we will help you to work out a treatment plan that will give you the results that you are looking for.
Breast Lift Surgery involves lifting and reshaping the breast tissue to improve breast contour and firmness. The nipple and areola may be repositioned to a higher, more youthful position and, if necessary, enlarged areolas will be reduced. Excess skin is removed if there is a loss of elasticity.
Some people need Breast Augmentation Surgery at the same time to provide breast fullness. In that case, an implant is inserted under the chest (pectoral) muscle or directly behind the breast tissue. Incision lines are usually concealed in the natural creases underneath the breast, but some may be visible on the breast surface, although these will fade over time. We will discuss what options are available, and which options are best suited for you at your consultation.
Some patients may need Breast Reduction Surgery in addition to a Breast Lift. Again, we has the skills and experience to work with you to find the most optimal solution.
Following your Breast Lift Surgery, you will need to wear a compression bandage or support bra for approximately a week to minimise swelling and support your new breast shape during healing. There may be some soreness, bruising and swelling of the breasts, but once this has dissipated your new, younger-looking breast shape will be noticeable.
In our experience, Breast Lift surgery gives people an enormous amount of self-confidence, so the benefits of the surgery reach way beyond physical appearance; they reach into your personal life. As with all our treatments, we aims to give you a natural look that is enhanced but not obvious.
