This website is intended to provide you with general information only. This information is not a substitute for advice from your Specialist Plastic Surgeon and does not contain all the known facts about this procedure.
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure that raises and firms the breasts. Excess skin is removed to tighten the surrounding tissue and to reshape and support the new breast contour. The internal breast tissue is usually reshaped as well.
Breast lift surgery is designed to reshape and tighten the breast contour by removing excess skin. This gives the breasts a more firm and raised appearance. A breast lift can also reduce the size of the areola, which can become enlarged over time.
Am I a good candidate for breast lifting treatment?
Breast lift surgery is a highly individualised procedure and may not be suitable for everyone. Your Specialist Plastic Surgeon will assess your condition and general health, and plan the treatment that is best suited to you.
Breast lifting can be done under general anaesthesia. Modern anaesthesia is safe and effective, but does have some risks. Your surgeon and/or anaesthetist will ask you about all the medications you are taking or have taken, and any allergies you may have. Make sure you have an up to date list before the surgery.
Before you decide on breast lift surgery, there are some important issues to keep in mind:
Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast. If you want your breasts to look fuller or smaller, you might want to consider either breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery.
Surgeons generally recommend waiting until breast development, child birth and breastfeeding have stopped before undertaking breast lift surgery.
Although breasts of any size can be lifted, the results may not be as long-lasting in women with heavier breasts.
A breast lift may be a good option for you if:
Your breasts are fully developed
Your breasts are sagging and have lost their shape and firmness
Your breasts have a flatter, elongated shape or are pendulous
When unsupported, your nipples fall below the breast crease
One breast is lower than the other
