Breast Lift / Breast Lift + Augmentation
Mastopexy (Breast Lift) - Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
As we get older our breasts can lose their firmness and start to droop. Pregnancy and breastfeeding, weight loss, gravity and a loss of skin elasticity can all take their toll, resulting in breasts that have lost their youthful shape and fullness. With experience in a variety of Breast Lift Surgery techniques, Dr Kumar will help you to work out a treatment plan that will give you the results that you are looking for. Breast Lift Surgery involves lifting and reshaping the breast tissue to improve breast contour and firmness. The nipple and areola may be repositioned to a higher, more youthful position and, if necessary, enlarged areolas will be reduced.
As the breast starts to sag as part of the natural ageing process, the nipples become too low on the breast mound and need to be lifted to a more attractive position. A breast lift by Dr Turner can helps you feel more confident with breasts that are the right size, shape and position on your body. For those women who would also like to increase their cup size or to restore lost cleavage or fullness in the upper part of their breast will benefit from having a breast implant at the same time to improve the overall shape and volume of their breasts.
Some women suffer from breast sagging from previous pregnancies, breast feeding, weight loss or simply a result of the normal aging process. This can lead to low self esteem, a lack of confidence and embarrassment in relationships. A mastopexy breast lift procedure is an operation performed to tighten the skin of the breasts, make the breasts look and feel firmer and place the nipples in a higher, more youthful position. It is performed under a general anaesthetic and the operation takes 2 hours and requires a hospital stay of one to two days. There are different ways the operation can be carried out depending on a number of individual factors including the starting shape and size of the breast.
