Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Perky and youthful breasts are just one of the benefits of being young. Yet, with pregnancy, nursing and weight loss, the breasts’ ageing process may be accelerated, causing premature or more excessive sagging.

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Over time, the areola can sometimes become enlarged, and breast lifts can help to reduce its size as well. Over all, a breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is youthful and uplifted.

Due to the nature of the procedure, a consultation is required for personalised quotes

What It Entails

During a breast lift, incisions are made to help lift and reshape the breast contour and give it firmness. At the hands of our expert plastic surgeon, sagging breasts are lifted up, whilst the nipple and areolas are repositioned to a more natural and youthful height. During the surgery, enlarged areolas can also be reduced in size and excess breast skin is suitably removed towards the end. Naturally, not all of these adjustments will be necessary during a breast lift, and the precise nature of the procedure will be tailored to each individual’s personal needs.

How It Works

1.During the consultation

If you are interested in getting a breast lift, you should start by booking a consultation with our plastic surgeon. During the consultation, you will be able to express what you are hoping to gain from this treatment and, after reviewing your medical history, our doctor will be able to determine whether you are eligible to undergo this type of procedure.

If you are a viable candidate, our doctor will outline the best course of treatment to ensure that you achieve optimal results.

2.During the procedure

During the surgical procedure, a general anaesthetic is administered to ensure your comfort throughout. Once the anaesthesia has taken effect, our plastic surgeon will start by making the required incisions in an inconspicuous area to minimise visible scarring. Following the incisions, the underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped to improve the breast contour and firmness, the nipple and areola are repositioned to a natural and youthful height - if necessary, enlarged areolas are reduced by excising skin at the perimeter - and excess breast skin is removed to compensate for a loss of elasticity.

Next, the remaining skin is tightened as the incisions are closed using layered sutures that create and support the newly shaped breasts. Finally, sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape is used to close the skin. The entire procedure typically takes between one to three hours, depending on the extent of the surgery.

3.After the treatment

Post-treatment, the results of your breast lift surgery are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover and realise the fulfilment of your goal for breasts which have been restored to a more youthful and uplifted position.
