Breast Lift

noun 3357637 Breast Lift 1

Changes to the breast are part of the body’s natural cycle with time. Factors including pregnancy, breastfeeding, hormonal changes, weight loss, genetics, and gravity can cause the breasts to lose elasticity and shape. The nipple can descend below the inframammary fold and make the breasts take a different shape.

Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift involves addressing the shape of the breasts by tightening the skin around the breasts and moving the nipple into a higher position.

Breast Lift Surgical Procedure

In most cases, this operation is carried out with an incision that follows the natural contour of the breast. This incision is used to remove excess skin and reshape the breast.

It’s important to note that a breast lift does result in a permanent, visible scar that encircles the areola and extends vertically down the breast and sometimes horizontally along the crease under the breast. Scarring can be minimised, but not entirely avoided.

Breast Lift Surgery Recovery Time

Dr Randle will provide you with specific instructions as to how much time you should devote to your recovery. In most cases, it takes patients one or two weeks to return to work, with additional time required for a full recovery.
