Getting a Breast Lift (Mastopexy) in Australia

Are you thinking about undergoing a breast lift mastopexy in Australia? The procedure is usually performed to treat breast skin laxity or descent. Such problems often result in stretched areolas, low nipples and a significant decrease in breast volume. A breast lift mastopexy surgery can elevate the position of the breasts by eliminating the excess of skin. In some cases, a breast augmentation mammoplasty or breast reduction mammoplasty surgery may be necessary to achieve the desired results depending on the breast volume that a surgeon has to work with.

When to consider breast lift mastopexy surgery?

Women can experience breast laxity and a significant decrease in breast volume for several reasons:

  • Breast changes as a result of pregnancy and child care
  • Significant weight changes (loss or gain)
  • Hereditary factors
  • Normal aging
  • Loss of skin elasticity around the nipple area

Pros and cons of the operation

Indeed a mastopexy in Australia can help women achieve more breast symmetry and projection. However patients all need to have realistic expectations out of the procedure and take note of the possible cons that come with procedure:

  • The results of a mastopexy operation naturally and slowly degrade over time due to the effects of gravity and ageing
  • Future pregnancy can diminish the successful results of mastopexy
  • A breast lift mastopexy can easily lead to significant scarring when performed by an unskilled and inexperienced breast surgeon. Every mastopexy patient will be left with some amount of scarring.
  • There are risks associated with procedures that involve incisions, such as infection, excessive bleeding, asymmetry, and unwanted results.

    Are you a good candidate for the procedure?

    A breast lift mastopexy in Australia might be of great interest to you especially if you are greatly troubled by your breast laxity. As mentioned earlier, your breast surgeon may require that the operation be performed in conjunction with other breast surgery operation (breast implants, breast reduction mammoplasty, nipple correction surgery, etc) to achieve the desired results. Now as a surgical operation, you can expect to go through some tests necessary for your surgeon to clear you for the procedure. As long as you are of reasonably good health with no underlying health issues that may compromise the surgery, then you are likely a good candidate for the procedure. Of course it’s also important to have the right expectations and a positive attitude about undergoing mastopexy surgery in Australia.
