A breast Lift in Perth is also commonly referred to a Mastopexy.
A breast lift or mastopexy is a procedure that corrects loss of firmness and sagging of the breasts (ptosis). It involves removing excess skin and tightening the tissue to reshape the breasts. The procedure of breast lift in Perth, performed by our highly skilled surgeon in our Perth clinic can improve the contour of sagging breasts. The procedure helps to recreate a youthful shape and is common among women following childbirth or significant weight loss.
Different reasons for undergoing this cosmetic surgery include:
- Improving contour of sagging breasts
- Increasing the firmness by removing excess skin
- Raising the position of the nipples
- Reducing the size of the areolae
Loss of skin elasticity in this area can stem from:
- Weight loss
Breast Lift Procedure Overview
Several techniques are available which aim to remove excess tissue and reshape the breasts. The best option depends on a number of factors including your physical condition and requirements. This is why the initial consultation is so important. Your surgeon will carefully review your options with you and explain what the procedure entails.
The surgery typically takes one to two hours but may take longer in some cases. You can expect to be discharged that same day.
Our procedure for a breast lift in Perth involves some degree of scarring on the breasts due to the incisions required. This may be a periareolar scar or may involve a vertical or horizontal scar on the lower side of the breast. The scars will become less visible after a period of time.
The procedure of breast lift in Perth also involves suspension of the tissue internally which can be combined with augmentation for a larger size. Augmentation mastopexy may be recommended as a two stage procedure for safety considerations.

This involves administering a general or local anaesthesia and following the surgical plan discussed prior to the surgery. Once the procedure is complete, you will be taken into a recovery room.
Patients can expect some bruising and swelling. Your surgeon will provide detailed instructions to follow in the days and weeks following the procedure. This contains important information regarding wearing compression garments, caring for your drains, and taking antibiotics if necessary.
It is critically important to follow all these guidelines and to refrain from strenuous activities such as heavy lifting. Most patients are typically able to return to their regular routine in approximately three weeks although recovery times tend to vary greatly for each individual.
All cosmetic procedures carry a degree of risk and breast lifts are no exception. Any specific risks will be discussed with you during the consultation concerning your breast lift in Perth.
