Breast Lift Gold Coast & Brisbane
Two of the most common reasons that women want to get Breast Lift Surgery is due to loss of volume in their breasts as a result of having children, or because they have lost a significant amount of weight.
What does breast lift surgery entail?
A breast lift enhances the look of your breasts in many ways. It lifts your breast tissue, expels surplus skin from the bottom portion of the breast and then reconstructs your remaining breast skin. All the while, it raises your nipple and areola to a higher position. If over time, your areolas have widened, they can be made smaller.
A well-known breast lift technique uses incisions that follow your breast’s natural shape. The scar from surgery is long-lasting but will eventually fade. It surrounds the areola and then extends across down the breast and over the crease underneath the breast. Other breast lift techniques may get rid of the incision scars.
What should I expect after surgery?
After surgery, your breasts will be wrapped in dressing. Discoloration and swelling occur but will eventually minimise. Some patients notice a decline in nipple or breast sensation, which is entirely normal and temporary.
When breast augmentation and lift are performed simultaneously, there is a raised risk of revision surgery being required. It may be recommended in an individual case that these procedures be performed six months apart.
