Breast Lift Melbourne
A breast lift or mastopexy, is a popular procedure for women of all ages. It is a surgery that removes excess skin, reshapes and lifts the breasts.
Dr. Jane understands that age, breast feeding, and weight loss can create sagging of the breast that may impact women’s self-esteem and confidence. She wants to ensure her patients can live life to the fullest and feel comfortable, attractive and empowered by their bodies.
Dr. Jane has performed many breast lift procedures for women throughout Melbourne and has seen the improvement a breast lift has made to her patients’ lives.
How Does a Breast Lift Work?
Breast lift surgery uses a small incision to remove excess skin from the breast. The result is a breast that is reshaped with a raised nipple/areola.
This procedure can be performed on its own or combined with breast implants or other procedures to achieve your desired look.
The procedure usually takes two hours and an overnight stay in hospital. It can take about eight weeks to regain full strength after the breast lift.
