A breast lift, also called mastopexy, raises and re-contours loose, sagging breasts. You may decide you would like a breast lift because you have lost tone in your breasts after having children. Another frequent reason for having this procedure is the loss of a significant amount of weight.
A breast lift improves the appearance of your breasts in several ways. It elevates your breast tissue, removes excess skin from the lower portion of your breast and then reshapes your remaining breast skin. At the same time, it relocates your nipple and areola (the pigmented skin surrounding your nipple) to a higher position. If your areolae have stretched over time, they can be reduced in size. Women who have their breasts lifted often may decide to also have them enlarged. If this is the case, an implant is placed behind the chest muscle.
Our doctors will explain the details of your surgery and all of the information about the procedure. We will also take the time to understand your medical history and provide you with an overview of the Surgeons and their credentials. You will also have an opportunity to review before and after photographs of their patient’s results in their areas of expertise.
Our Surgeon will provide general information on treatments, hospital costs and incidental fee. Pre and post-operative information and a written quote will be provided to you at time of your consultation.

The Breast Lift Procedure
A commonly performed breast lift technique, uses incisions that follow your breast’s natural contour. The resulting scar, which is permanent but will fade to some extent over time, encircles the areola and then extends vertically down the breast and horizontally along the crease underneath the breast. There are other breast lift techniques that may eliminate the horizontal incision, the vertical incision, or both. The use of any particular pattern of incisions depends on individual patient factors and Dr Scamp’s recommendation.
Following surgery, your breasts will be wrapped in a dressing. Swelling and discoloration are to be expected but will gradually subside. You may experience decreased breast or nipple sensation, which is usually temporary. You should be able to return to work within one or two weeks.
When breast augmentation and lift are performed simultaneously, there is a raised risk of revisional surgery being required. It may be recommended in an individual case that these procedures be performed six months apart.
Vectra 3D Imageing
Vectra 3D Imageing allows you to see exactly what your surgical or non-surgical procedure would look like before committing to surgery. You select your implant size and shape for your breast augmentation by viewing actual 3D images of your body. Vectra 3D allows sharp definition 3D views of your body so that you can visualise the possibilities of your surgical procedure.

Choosing A Qualified Surgeon
One of the most important factors in the success of your plastic surgery is the surgeon you select. Many people are surprised to learn that some doctors performing plastic/cosmetic surgery today have had no formal surgical training. That is why you need to ask the right questions before you schedule a consultation.
