Do I Need A Breast Lift?
Patients can obtain a breast lift in Sydney for numerous reasons. More often than not, patients often need to decide between a breast lift in Sydney or a breast augmentation. Evidently, these two procedures are done for different reasons.
A breast lift in Sydney is most commonly obtained by women who suffer from breast ptosis. Breast ptosis is another word for breast drooping. It is caused by a loss of volume in the natural breast and it can be characterised by a change in size and shape of the breast. This condition can be caused by numerous things, this includes extreme weight loss, the natural ageing process, and more.
To determine if you are a good candidate for a breast lift in Sydney, patients can do a pencil test. When the pencil is placed high under the breast fold, the pencil should not hold. If it does, you may have signs of breast sagging or drooping. Evidently, patients that have this particular breast shape could be prime candidates for a breast lift in Sydney.
Breast lift procedures can be combined with breast augmentation such as a breast implant. If a patient has little breast tissue, and if a lot of volume is lost, then an implant or a fat transfer could restore that volume loss.
How Is A Breast Lift Performed In Sydney?
The breast lift can be executed in three different ways, since there are three different types of breast lift, depends on the desired result the patient wishes to achieve and the overall problems
Overall, patients can obtain the periareolar, vertical and inverted-T methods for their breast lift. Below, you will find a brief overview of each method and what it entails.
Periareolar: This technique is commonly used for patients with larger nipples and areolas. It involves an incision that goes around the areola, subsequently keeping within the natural shape of the breast. It is the best technique for those with minimal drooping.
Vertical: The vertical technique is similar to the periareolar incision. However, the vertical incision continues to go down below the areola. Evidently, this incision is done to create a bigger correction and is suitable for medium lift needs.
Inverted-T: The inverted-T is basically a combination of the vertical and the periareolar incision, with the addition of an extra incision in the breast fold. This kind of incision is used for patients who suffer from significant to severe ptosis.
What To Expect After A Breast Lift?
Patients should expect that the general anaesthetic (if applicable) will have an effect for a good 48 hours. During this time, patients should not make any important decisions or sign legal documents.
During their recovery, patients must avoid strenuous activities, which includes heavy lifting. Patients should also expect some side-effects from the surgery, as the procedure involves making incisions on the chest wall. Therefore, patients can experience some soreness and swelling of the breasts.
It can take some time until patients can comfortably wear a seatbelt after their breast lift. If you need transport during your recovery, please make sure someone is able to drive you around. Do not drive yourself until you are comfortable wearing a seatbelt again.
Once you start resuming your normal activities, always make sure you start gently. During the initial recovery stages, it is best to do some light walking. Light walking can promote the natural healing process, but also reduce the chance of serious complications such as deep vein thrombosis. Once the initial recovery stage is over, you can start increasing your activity levels gently. If you are unsure it is safe for you to do so, always speak to your cosmetic surgeon or consult your GP to ensure exercise is safe at that particular stage of your recovery.
During your recovery, make sure you always protect any wounds left after the surgery. It is also recommended that patients maintain a healthy weight post-procedure. Unexpected weight gain could influence the results long-term. Therefore, it is important for patients to maintain a stable weight just before and after the procedure.
Please note that patients who still want children should speak to their cosmetic surgeon before having the procedure. While the procedure rarely interferes with breastfeeding, there is always a small chance that a woman’s ability to breastfeed will be affected. Therefore, it is best to discuss this with your cosmetic surgeon before having the treatment.

Does A Breast Lift Reduce The Size Of Breasts?
A breast lift is not the same thing as a breast reduction. During a breast reduction, the surgeon will remove excess fat or the breast tissue from the breasts. However, a breast lift can be combined with a breast reduction in some cases. For example, if the patient wants final results that include a smaller breast size as well as a lift, then these two procedures can be combined.
There can be a number of reasons why patients seek a breast reduction. One of the most common reasons is physical complaints due to the size and weight of the breasts. Some patients experience back pain, neck pain, and some even have chronic headaches. Reducing the size and the weight of the breasts can therefore have a positive effect on these physical complaints.
