Major life changes such as pregnancy and menopause can reduce the firmness of your breasts. In addition, significant weight loss can also cause your breasts to droop or sag. While these changes are a normal part of life, they can affect your self-confidence. Moreover, sagging breasts can also cause skin irritation and soreness. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts or are experiencing physical discomforts, you may want to consider a breast lift. By adjusting the shape and position of your breasts, it helps you achieve a youthful breast contour while preventing discomforts associated with sagging breasts. Shown below are breast lift photos of actual patients of Dr Laniewski in Sydney.
Good candidates for the procedure
The best way to know if you are a good fit for the procedure is to consult with our plastic surgeon and breast lift specialist. In general, the mastopexy procedure is right for you if:
- One of your breasts is lower than the other.
- You experience breast soreness and irritation more often.
- You have fully developed breasts.
- You have good physical and mental health.
- You have low self-confidence due to the appearance of your breasts.
- You have realistic expectations.
- You have sagging breasts that result from pregnancy, ageing, or weight loss.
The breast lift procedure
Before your surgery, Dr Laniewski will assess your general health and goals. This also allows him to create a customised treatment plan based on your needs.
On the day of your surgery, our surgeon will place marks on your breasts. This ensures the correct placement of the incisions. You will then receive general anaesthesia to prevent discomforts. Once your skin is numb, Dr Peter Laniewski will make a cut around your areola. This allows him to access the breast tissue. To achieve the desired breast appearance, our breast lift surgery specialist will remove excess skin, tissue, or fat. Your nipple and areola will also be repositioned so that they will look more youthful. Dr Peter will then secure the final position of your breasts by suturing them.
After the surgery, it is normal for you to experience swelling and bruising at the incision site. You will need to wear a special bra or compression garments to reduce swelling. After a few weeks, you should feel a significant reduction in breast discomforts.
