– Breast Lift

This is the correction of ptotic or sagging breasts and leaves the patient with scarring similar to a breast reduction procedure. The excess skin needs to be removed and the breast tissue remodelled in order to try and maintain the ‘new’ form of the breast.

This procedure is, likewise, done under local anaesthetic, with conscious sedation, as a day case procedure and usually takes approximately two hours. In some instances, where there is insufficient volume, these procedures are combined with a breast augmentation. (Likewise, if the breasts are particularly ptotic or sagging, one sometimes needs not only an augmentation but to perform a mastopexy at the same time. These procedures are sometimes combined and then, obviously, extend the time period of the procedure.)

The recovery time of the above is similar to breast reduction but is sometimes shorter, given the fact that this is a slightly less invasive procedure.
