Breast Lift Perth WA
Has gravity taken its toll on your body and left you with sagging breasts?
As we age gravity and other factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight loss take its toll on our bodies, leaving us with sagging, depleted breasts.
At our plastic surgery in Perth we are able to use a breast lift to reshape and lift the breasts to an ideal position for you. During this procedure Dr Nguyen will also be able to improve the appearance of the nipples and areolas if they should point downward or are stretched or enlarged. Dr Nguyen will discuss this with you prior to surgery.
What is a breast lift?
A breast lift is a surgical procedure that tightens the skin and repositions the breasts for firmer and perkier breasts. This procedure will not alter the size of your breasts; however it will rejuvenate your shape and profile with a youthful and uplifted appearance. A breast lift can be performed in conjunction with an augmentation to provide volume for those requiring it and particularly to enhance upper pole fullness.
If you would like more volume in your breasts as well as to have more upper pole fullness, then a breast lift alone will not achieve this.
A breast implant will be needed in addition to the breast lift to enhance the breast size, volume and upper pole fullness. This is known as an augmentation mastopexy, which is technically a more challenging procedure.
Traditionally, an augmentation mastopexy (breast lift and enlargement) is performed in stages – the breast lift first and once healed, the second stage breast enlargement with an implant. This is due to the competing forces that occur during a single stage augmentation mastopexy where the tissues and skin are tightened in a lift (as well as the breast gland being reshaped and repositioned), while on the other hand, an implant is enlarging the breast and putting tension on the reduced skin envelope.
An augmentation mastopexy can be performed at the one operation but it is not as simple, and it is not unusual if minor revisions are required in the future.
What should I expect from my consultation?
Dr Anh and her cosmetic consultants will spend about 45 minutes with you to gain a better understanding of why you are seeking a breast lift, what results you want to achieve from the mastopexy and what your expectations are of having the procedure. Dr Anh will obtain a medical and surgical history and then examine you, after which she will recommend which treatments will give you the best possible result.
Dr Nguyen will discuss the options available to you to achieve perkier and fuller looking breasts with a breast lift procedure.
