How Will I Know I Need A Breast Lift?

To help in deciding if this procedure is right for you, consideration of the nipple position relative to the rest of the breast is helpful – this is the degree of breast ptosis and Dr Ying will assess this in your consultation.

How Many Operations Are Involved?

A simple Mastopexy is performed in a single stage. Sometimes patients may want a fuller result which can be achieved by augmentation in addition to Mastopexy. This can be performed in one or two stages depending on the patient’s quality of skin and breast tissue.

Is A Breast Lift Right For Me?

There are many factors that can be considered in the decision for which breast surgery is best for your individual circumstances and anatomy. All these factors will be discussed in your consultation with Dr Ying.

What to expect after mastopexy surgery?

  • Mastopexy surgery is usually done as a day case under general anaesthetic. Most patients can go home the same day with a support person.
  • When you wake up after the operation you should have minimal pain as local anaesthetic will have been administered into the area. The anaesthetic lasts for about 6-12 hours.
  • Pain/discomfort varies considerably from person to person. Medication to relieve pain will be prescribed.
    You will need to wear a surgical bra/garment for 6 weeks after surgery.
  • There will be swelling and bruising after mastopexy surgery. This will gradually subside with the help of garment compression.
  • Most patients return to work after 7-14 days, depending on the nature of work. You will need longer time off work if augmentation was performed at the same time.
  • No lifting and no exercising for 4-6 weeks.

Possible risks and complications:

All surgeries carry risk. Although uncommon, it is important that all patients understand the possible risks and complications associated with mastopexy surgery. These will be discussed in detail with you during your consultation with Dr Ying, and include, but are not limited to:

Bruising, swelling, pain, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, asymmetrical results, irregular contours, seroma, skin loss including nipple, skin tethering, skin loosening, bleeding, haematoma, wrinkling, dimpling, infection, undercorrection/overcorrection, changes in sensation, poor scarring, nerve damage, wound breakdown, allergic reactions, stroke and/or heart attack, and atelectasis.
