Breast Lift

Breast Lift (Mastopexy) is a surgical procedure that involves the reshaping of the breast, without removal of any breast tissue, so that your cup size remains the same.

Breast lift surgery is an option for women who, although satisfied with the size of their breast, are unhappy about sagging and loss of tone. A breast lift is indicated to correct sagging breasts, without changing your cup size.

Reasons for Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy)

  • To reshape sagging breasts and improve contour.
  • To increase the firmness of soft breasts
  • To increase the volume of breasts, in combination with the insertion of an artificial implant
  • To raise the position of downward pointing nipples
  • To reduce the size of the areolas.

If you are happy with your size and just wish to correct sagginess or breast droop, then a breast lift alone is the correct procedure. If you are requesting breast augmentation after breast feeding, you may also require a breast lift to correct sagging.

When having a breast reduction, the patient automatically also has a breast lift as part of the procedure.

The surgical scars, procedures, anaesthesia and postoperative care are very similar to a breast reduction (see above). The main difference is that no breast tissue is removed with a pure breast lift, and thus the procedure is shorter, and drain tubes are usually not required.

'Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.'
