There are various approaches to a breast lift (mastopexy) procedure, and these will be explained to you in detail by A/Prof Magnusson upon consultation at his Toowoomba or Gold Coast office. He will also guide you on which of these would suit you based on the degree of surgery required, body shape and preference.
The breast lift procedure
On top of tightening the skin and lifting the skin and lifting the underlying tissue, the nipple and areola are also made to point at a right angle from the body instead of pointing downwards.
There are frequent additions to a standard mastopexy procedure that A/Prof Magnusson utilises regularly. Implants can be added for a mild to moderate increase in size associated with a breast lift especially to increase the fullness of the upper pole which is a frequent area of concern particularly after weight loss or pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Fat grafting can also be used to improve the emptiness in the upper pole or accentuate the cleavage in association with a breast lift with or without the use of a breast implant. This is a particularly useful tool to shape the breast when the size is already adequate and an implant will lead to too much increased volume.
