What You Need To Know About Breast Lift Sydney

A breast lift Sydney, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. It can also reduce the size of the areola, and the dark skin surrounding the nipple.

Breast Lifts Sydney

There are two types of breast lift: submammary (below the breast) and mastopexy (above the breast). Submammary breast lift is done through a small incision below the breast. Mastopexy is done through an incision above the breast.

Most women who have a breast lift feel more confident and happier after surgery. However, some women experience minor discomfort and swelling for a few weeks following surgery. Most patients are able to return to work within a few days, although some women have a longer recovery.

Breast lifts are often done in conjunction with other procedures, such as a breast reduction (surgical reduction of the size of the breasts) or a mastopexy (repositioning of the nipple).

What Causes Sagging Breasts?

Breasts sag as a result of a number of factors, including ageing, weight gain, pregnancy, and breastfeeding.  As we age, our breasts lose their elasticity. The skin and tissues of the breast area become less firm, and the overlying skin becomes thinner. As a woman’s breasts change during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight fluctuations, the supporting tissues underneath may stretch. Breastfeeding can cause significant stretching of the nipple area.

As a woman matures (specifically in her 30s) estrogen levels begin to decrease which results in the loss of elasticity in both breast and skin tissue. This allows for an increased occurrence of sagging breasts.

What Are the Risks of a Breast Lift?

Some of the potential risks associated with breast lift Sydney surgery include:

  1. Damage to the breast tissue. This can occur if the surgeon does not properly remove all of the tissue that is causing the sagging. If too much tissue is left in the breast, it can cause a variety of problems, including pain, reduced range of motion, and scars.
  2. Infection. Although rare, an infection can occur following breast surgery and can be quite serious. It can cause serious swelling and possible death.
  3. Inability to breastfeed. If a woman has a mastopexy (repositioning of the nipple), she may not be able to breastfeed.
  4. Permanent damage to the nipple.
