Breast Lift

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

A breast lift, or mastopexy, restores a firmer, shapelier breast, which will improve body contours and give the breasts a perky, youthful appearance. Multiple techniques exist that can fulfil your goals with minimal scarring. For patients who require more volume as well as lift, then the augmentation mastopexy (breast lift with implants), is the operation of choice. If less volume is desired, then the lift can be performed in association with a breast reduction.

TECHNIQUE

In general terms, there are a few common classes of breast lift, or mastopexy, and they all have their role in breasts with differing needs.

 

RECOVERY

Breast lift surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and is usually a day-only procedure. There is minimal pain after the procedure and this is usually controlled with simple analgesia. All your sutures are self-dissolving and your dressings are waterproof so you can start having a shower from the day after your surgery. You will be given a garment to wear and this is to be worn for 6 weeks post-operatively.

Most people can return to a level of daily duties the next day but this can vary on an individual basis so when planning for this surgery we would suggest you plan to have:

A week off work for office-based jobs
10-14 days off work for more physical-type work
Minimal driving for a week following the surgery

RISK

If you are considering a breast lift (mastopexy), then it is important that you are informed of the potential risks, complications and side effects of this surgery.

While all care is taken to minimise or totally avoid these complications and side effects, complications may and do occur despite the best medical care. It is important that you carefully read and understand the risk factors and they will be discussed in more detail when you have your consultation with your surgeon.
