Breast Lift with Implants

A Breast Lift with Implants helps increase the size of the breasts, while at the same time improves the position of the breast in a single surgery procedure. This two in one procedure will help reduce the discomfort and downtime involved for multiple surgical procedures.

Before the procedure, a general anaesthetic will be administered.

The breast lift with implants is usually performed by placing the implant beneath the pectoral muscle (thick, fan-shaped muscle under the breast) while the breast is lifted by raising the nipple and tightening the breast tissue underneath. These are performed to reposition the nipple and correct the slackness. Of course, each surgeon may have a different procedure for different patients.

The skin around and below the nipple may be removed before tightening the tissues of the breast. After which, the skin will be stitched. The wound will be closed using dissolving sutures and covered with a surgical tape.

Risks and Complications

These are rare and often only temporary, however, they may include:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Implant rippling
  • Capsular contracture
  • Rupture
  • Loss of nipple sensation
Q. What will I expect during recovery after a breast lift with implants be?

A. Recovery time varies, it can take 3 days where one may feel some tightness and pressure, as well as burning. For those who had children, they may feel heavy on the breast that seems like it’s full of milk after childbirth.

Q. What do I need to prevent doing before and after the surgery?

A. Refrain from smoking at least two weeks before and two weeks after the surgery. Better still, refrain from smoking permanently!

Q. Can I still breastfeed after the breast lift with implants surgery?

A. Maybe. There is very small chance of losing the ability to breastfeed after the surgery because the dissection is far from the citiferous duct (mammary gland that carries milk to the nipple).

Leanne's Multiple Procedures Leanne’s Multiple Procedures with Dr Gavin Sandercoe May 17, 2019 - Leanne has had a bit of a journey when it comes to the procedures she needed after massive weight loss and had her first surgery in May 2018 where she had a breast lift and inner thigh lift. Then in August had a lower back lift and outer thighs, followed by an abdominoplasty with muscle repair and fat grafting to her breasts and under her eyes in November, all in the same year! It wasn’t over though, because Leanne had a revision surgery on her back lift earlier this year! But it’s all been worth it though because Leanne’s multiple procedures look fantastic, and is super happy with her results from Specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr Gavin Sandercoe, who Leanne says helped her every step of the way to get the great results she has.

Inframammary Fold What is the Inframammary Fold, and how does it affect breast surgery? May 9, 2019 - So, what is the Inframammary Fold (IMF), and how does it affect breast surgery? You may or may not have heard of the inframammary fold but it plays a big part in any type of breast surgery. It is considered one of the most important aspects to the aesthetic appearance of the breast. You also may or may not be aware of the terms “upper pole” and “lower pole” which refer to the fullness of the upper or lower breast and is largely affected by the positioning of the inframammary fold. Dr Michael Miroshnik, Plastic Surgeon based in Sydney NSW took time out of his day to help us understand what these terms mean, why your surgeon should be talking about them with you at your consultation and how they affect what your final breast surgery results will be. The Inframammary Fold (IMF) Dr Miroshnik says the IMF is always on the agenda at every industry breast meeting including the Breast Masters Symposium held at the end of 2018. “The inframammary fold is always a big topic because it defines the lower pole of the breast and we all know any problems will involve the inframammary fold in one way […]
Rachael's Mummy Makeover Rachael’s Mummy Makeover – a Life Changing Journey May 2, 2019 - I struggle to put into words my experience with the team at HPS and Dr Nicholas Moncrieff, from the very beginning when I made the first contact to now, 4 months post op they have been beyond incredible. I had lost over 40 kilos and was ready to take the next step and explore my surgical options but after two consults with different surgeons in Sydney it felt like it was unachieveable. I walked out of those consults feeling extremely down and had little hope. My friend who had been following Dr Moncrieff’s work suggested I book in to see him and wow am I grateful that I did. I first saw the practice manager Jess and had some pics taken, she immediately made me feel like I wasn’t just a number and that I would definitely be taken care of, then came my appointment with Dr Moncrieff and much to my surprise he was the same, made me feel incredibly comfortable, valued but most of all he listened, he listened to everything I said, he answered my questions and left no stone unturned! I wasted no time and booked my surgery straight away! The lead up was great I […]
Combining Procedures Sharni’s breast reduction and lift, belt lipectomy and mons lift with Dr Matthew Peters April 1, 2019 - My weight loss journey started January 4th, 2017. For the first time in as long as I can remember I stood on the scales. A whopping 98.7kgs was staring me in the eyes. I was distraught, but knew I had to change. I began eating healthier and exercising daily, but the weight wouldn’t budge. Something more drastic had to be done, and I underwent my first life altering experience weight loss surgery. It was a hard battle, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I triumphed with a loss of 45kgs in just over a year. I was left with redundant skin and large severely sagging breasts.

causes of sagging breasts Top Causes of Sagging Breasts and How to Prevent Them March 27, 2019 - Firm and perky breasts are often seen as a symbol of youth for women of all ages. This can mean that seeing even the slightest amount of sagging in breast tissue can lead to a fair bit of emotional distress and frustration. Understanding some of the causes of sagging breasts can help women to maintain their firm breast tissue and a youthful silhouette. Fighting nature and the aging process As women go through each stage of life, it’s quite natural for her to experience changes to her breasts. Breasts can grow larger during pregnancy and breastfeeding, which can lead to the skin and breast tissues stretching and loosening. After pregnancy and breastfeeding, the skin is going to remain stretched and loosened. The thinning of skin, including the skin on the chest, is a natural part of the aging process. It happens due to a loss of collagen and elastin, which does often happen as women approach menopause. It’s also important to note that larger breasts are much more likely to be impacted by the effects of gravity. While you can’t stop the aging process, there are some steps that can be taken to help slow the process down and keep […]

Upper Pole Fullness Creating Upper Pole Fullness with a Breast Lift and Implants February 28, 2019 - Dr Raymond Goh performs a large number of breast surgeries each year and shared these photos of a recent breast lift patient who also had implants to get the shape she wanted. The patient was a young lady in her 20’s who didn’t like her droopy breasts and larger areolas. She came to Dr Goh who performed a breast lift with small implants. Dr Goh says, “We were able to provide this patient with more upper pole fullness, better breast shape and more ideal nipple areola size and position. She also wanted to be slightly bigger in cup size, but wished to remain natural and in proportion to her body and lifestyle.” Upper Pole Fullness Many women request “upper pole fullness” from their surgeon. The upper pole is the part of the breast from the nipple upwards. A full upper pole refers to a rounder upper chest and cleavage. To achieve this look the surgeon needs to place the implant higher in the chest. There are a few things a surgeon considers to achieve upper pole fullness including: Patient anatomy – different patients have different builds and so different approaches are required. Placement of the implant – usually an under […]

Sara found Dr Patrick Briggs, Plastic Surgeon in Perth, and her results are amazing. She shares her story with us. Q: What prompted you, or was your motivation to have plastic surgery? A: I have two children; a daughter 4 years of age and a son 2 years of age. Prior to having children I was approximately 57KGS – I had reached this weight after watching what I ate and exercised to feel good about myself and shed some weight. I reached my weight of 57KGS where I remained happy. A while down the track not too long later, I felt pregnant with our first child and at the end of my pregnancy I gained over 15KGS. I accepted my body the way it was having just given birth to our daughter, who is my whole world and everything in it.

Does Medicare Cover Breast Reduction or Breast Lift Surgery? December 4, 2018 - What Medicare does and doesn’t cover can get very confusing. Generally, Medicare doesn’t cover any surgery considered “cosmetic”, this can include some breast surgery. However, Medicare may rebate some patients for breast reductions and breast lift surgery if it is deemed medically necessary . We asked Dr Craig Rubinstein from Cosmetic Surgery for Men and Women in Hawthorn Victoria to talk us through the selection criteria and some important things to remember. Medicare criteria for breast reduction and breast lift Dr Rubinstein says perhaps the most important thing to be aware of is that Medicare will only cover you if you can provide documentation and proof (from a plastic surgeon) that your breast reduction and/or lift is to fix breast ptosis or breast deformity. “It may depend on how heavy your ptotic breasts are and how they are affecting your physical health, such as causing back pain or chronic skin infections. More often than not, if you are covered by Medicare and you have Private Health Insurance, they may contribute to the surgery. This is not always the case and depends on your Health Fund and level of cover. We always recommend checking directly with your fund regarding your policy.” […]
Bikini Boobs – the perfect cleavage! December 3, 2018 - I tried on my swimmers yesterday for the first time this summer and spent at least a minute “fixing” my boobs to fit into them and it made me wish I had perky, awesome boobs that looked amazing in bikinis! Straight away I thought of Dr Amira Sanki, Plastic Surgeon in Sydney, who does some amazing breast augmentations and thought I’d ask her what makes the perfect “bikini boobs” – the perfect cleavage! All of us want to feel comfortable in our bodies, especially when we’re more exposed wearing our swimmers or bikinis. With the Australian lifestyle and culture going to the beach or spending the summers by the pool is almost a given, but for those women not happy with their breasts it can be more about covering up, especially for women after pregnancy and childbirth where their breasts are left feeling empty, deflated, sagging or flat. A breast augmentation, lift, reduction or reconstruction can improve or completely transform a woman’s confidence. Dr Sanki says, “The active lifestyles most of us have here in Australia leaves little room for wearing uncomfortable bras and clothing to help support sagging breasts. Breast lift and breast lift with implants are able to […]
Mummy Makeover in Perth with Plastic Surgeon Dr Patrick Briggs November 28, 2018 - Mummy makeovers are a popular choice for women to help get their bodies back into shape after pregnancy and childbirth. The term mummy makeover refers to a combination of a few different procedures to help get a woman’s body back to where it was, if not better than it was, before kids. We chatted to Dr Patrick Briggs, Specialist Plastic Surgeon and one of Perth’s most experienced mummy makeover surgeons, to talk us through what’s involved in a mummy makeover. He also shared some mummy makeover patients’ before and after photos with us. All photos below are patients of Dr Briggs. Make sure you click on each of them to see the full sized photos. What procedures does a mummy makeover include? A mummy makeover is not a one size fits all group of procedures, however it usually includes an Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), Breast Augmentation (breast implants), Breast Mastopexy (breast lift with or without implants) and any other procedure to repair or improve the appearance of a part of the body affected by pregnancy and childbirth such as: Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) Breast Augmentation (breast implants) Breast Mastopexy (breast lift) Breast reduction (with or without lift) Liposuction Labiaplasty (repair function and/or […]
Understanding, compassion, listening – when surgeons go the extra mile… November 28, 2018 - Plastic or cosmetic surgery can be a massively daunting experience. It can be extremely overwhelming and downright scary. For some patients, finding a plastic surgeon they can not only trust to do a good job and get them awesome results but is also caring, considerate and empathetic of their situation is a little harder to find. While it’s an extremely personal decision, making sure you are able to fully communicate and express your concerns is essential in ensuring you get the best results. This can be why some women patients feel more comfortable with a female surgeon. We spoke to Dr Amira Sanki, Sydney Plastic Surgeon, about how she manages patient expectations and how important it is for patients to trust their surgeon. If you google Dr Amira Sanki you’ll find no shortage of raving fans. Perhaps 90% of her patients use the word “amazing” to describe her and all of them describe how she surpassed their expectations. Quite a few call her their friend, and many suggest she changed their life. I’ve chatted with Dr Sanki myself and it’s evident that each and every patient is special to her, and she is without a doubt one of the most […]
Sometimes we just need a bit of a lift – Breast Lift or Mastopexy September 24, 2018 - Whether it’s from genetics, age, or breastfeeding, having droopy boobs can not only affect the clothes we wear, but our confidence and physical comfort. Breasts that have lost their perkiness can cause us to cover up and wish that they would just hold themselves up without having to fit them into the right bra – which can be a struggle within itself. Hold onto your titties ladies because there is a solution. We had a chat to specialist plastic surgeon Dr Raymond Goh, based in Brisbane, about how a breast lift works. A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, is a procedure to bring your girls up to where you want them to be without implants or a reduction (although having a breast lift at the same time as a reduction and/or augmentation is quite common too). Dr Goh says, “This procedure is to raise and reshape sagging breasts. As a woman ages, skin loses some elasticity which can cause the breasts to lose their natural shape and firmness. This procedure is designed to elevate the breasts and give them a more youthful appearance. A breast lift may also be completed in conjunction with breast enlargement surgery (augmentation).” There are […]
Comprehensive Breast Surgery By Specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr Eddie Cheng August 21, 2018 - As part of our job here at the Hub we’re constantly researching and getting out and meeting new plastic surgeons, most of whom we’ve heard about from happy patients or industry colleagues. Dr Eddie Cheng based in Brisbane QLD is one of these surgeons, and while this FRACS surgeon is fully trained and experienced in all plastic and cosmetic surgeries I chatted to him about why he’s considered one of the best specialist breast surgeons around.

Her surgery was a great success and Jody also has some excellent advice for anyone else looking to have breast surgery. This is her story. Trish: Oh good morning, it’s Trish here again from Transforming Bodies Plastic Surgery Stories, and today I’m going to be talking to the lovely Jody, who has recently had some plastic surgery, so she’s going to share a bit of her journey with us.

Laura’s Lift – Breast Lift, Mastopexy June 11, 2018 - Laura had always disliked her saggy, long boobs and finally decided to have a mastopexy or breast lift with Dr Patrick Briggs, Specialist Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon in WA. Laura’s only regret was that she didn’t have the surgery sooner. Laura shared her story with us and reminds us why breasts are an important part of every woman’s body and psyche. Laura says she wasn’t happy with her breasts from a young age. “They have always been saggy, no fullness and an odd shape. In my eyes I had ‘long boobs’ and back when I was a teen, to deal with that was a big thing. I’d buy push-up bra after push-up bra only to wear a coat or jumper over my clothes to hide them because I just hated them.” Laura had a mastopexy, otherwise known as a breast lift. After researching surgeons Laura went with Dr Patrick Briggs. “My surgeon was the incredible Dr Patrick Briggs. He and his team went above and beyond as far as I’m concerned. Every question I had was answered, no matter how dumb I thought it was. I was told right from the beginning what was realistic and achievable. I was never […]

So Megan’s going to share all that with us today and ladies and guys out there having a listen, like really pay attention because this can just happen. You’ve just got to really do your research.

So yeah I had a chat with you earlier on so I kind of know what’s going on, but just tell us a bit about your story. So basically you had a plastic surgery procedure at a really young age? Megan: Yeah so I had asymmetry of my breasts, I had one natural breast that grew nicely and the other that just chose not to. So I originally had surgery when I was 16 to correct it […]
Dr Patrick Tansley - Mummy Makeover Mummy Makeover – Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck at NorthEast Plastic Surgery January 17, 2018 - Earlier in 2017, this 39 year old lady who breast fed 3 children (one delivered by caesarean section) and had experienced significant fluctuations in weight presented for consideration of aesthetic breast and abdominal surgery – a classic ‘mummy makeover’. She described her 12-14DD breasts as saggy, empty and droopy ‘deflated water balloons’ which were causing neck and shoulder pain. She was also troubled by excess abdominal skin and a ‘muffin top’. She wished to have her stretch marks addressed and achieve natural, full and correctly positioned breasts along with a flat tummy and shaped waistline. At preoperative assessment, she had asymmetric ptotic (droopy), heavy breasts with stretch marks and excess abdominal skin above and below the umbilicus also with stretch marks, flank fat and separation (divarication) of the abdominal wall musculature. She was counselled at NorthEast Plastic Surgery to consider surgery comprising a variety of breast surgical options in conjunction with abdominoplasty and flank liposuction. The relative risks and benefits of each were carefully detailed and appropriate investigations undertaken. At surgery, a vertical scar (lollipop) approach was used to undertake asymmetrical bilateral breast reduction, along with full abdominoplasty, repair of the ‘six-pack’ muscles and flank liposuction. She made an uneventful […]
Dr Rebecca Whyten Dr Rebecca Wyten from Cosmetic Surgery for Women and Men in Hawthorn – “No question is a silly question” November 13, 2017 - I had the opportunity to chat with Dr Rebecca Wyten, Specialist Plastic Surgeon from Cosmetic Surgery for Women in Hawthorn VIC at the recent 40th ASAPS conference. She’s sought after for breast surgery, abdominoplasty and all things mummy makeover. Check out my video interview with her by clicking on the image. PSH: Is there a variation of people you treat in regards to gender, or is it primarily women? Dr Rebecca Wyten: The majority of the people that see me are women that have had children, and they get to that sort of stage where they’ve worked really hard to get back to their sort of post-baby bodies, and they just can’t shift any more fat, or they’ve got all this extra loose skin, and so they come to me really quite self-conscious about how they feel. They’ll get comments at the gym, you know, “Don’t do that because you’re pregnant,” when they’re not, or they’ll be exercising … I had a lovely lady that was a crossfit trainer and she just said when she lies forward all her skin falls forward. A lot of these women have done everything they can to make themselves as fit as possible, but […]
Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation with Implants? October 11, 2017 - One of the more common questions women ask when considering breast surgery, is will a breast lift be enough or do they want a breast augmentation with implants? Dr Marcus Pyragius is a Specialist Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon based in Adelaide and is highly regarded for his breast surgery. He has a reputation for listening carefully to his patients in order to best achieve the results they are after. We asked him about reasons why people might consider one type of breast surgical procedure over another. PSH: What is the more popular procedure you perform – breast lift, breast augmentation or both? Dr Pyragius: The most popular aesthetic breast procedures that I perform include Breast Augmentation (implants) and Breast Augmentation Mastopexy (implant & lift). A mastopexy (breast lift) is also a relatively common procedure. PSH: How does a woman know which one is going to suit her better and ultimately choose which procedure will give her the results she wants? Dr Pyragius:The most suitable procedure for any woman depends on the size and shape of their existing breasts and what look they would ultimately like to achieve in terms of breast size and shape. A woman is suitable for a […]
Breast Asymmetry One of these is bigger than the other… Breast Asymmetry with Dr Jeremy Hunt October 6, 2017 - There’s lots of attention on making breasts bigger with augmentation or making them smaller with a reduction, but there’s many women who’d settle for just having their breasts the same size. Whether it’s because of breast feeding, or they might have always been lopsided, having uneven breasts can be a cause of embarrassment and have many side effects such as insecurity in the bedroom. Dr Jeremy Hunt, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon based in Edgecliff NSW performs loads of breast procedures each year to even up asymmetrical breasts and talks to us about what’s involved. Why are some boobs and nipples different sizes? Firstly, it is estimated that over half the women around the world have asymmetrical or uneven boobs or nipples. So, you’re in good company! It’s perfectly normal and most humans have some sort of body asymmetry whether it’s unmatching fingers, toes, boobs or anything else. So most of the time the cause of asymmetry is just nature. Sometimes it may become more pronounced or obvious with hormonal changes during puberty, breastfeeding, because of benign lumps or even breast cancer. Don’t be alarmed by this last one though, as the majority of women just have uneven boobs and nipples […]
I need a boob job I need a boob job, can Medicare help? August 24, 2017 - UPDATED: The rules have changed. Breast augmentation is no longer covered by Medicare except in very specific circumstances. The only time a boob job is covered by Medicare is when it is part of a reconstruction after a mastectomy or other breast cancer treatments. Minor Medicare rebates may in a few cases be available if you have recurring health issues because of the size, position or skin condition of your breasts. So, the popular question of “I need a boob job, can Medicare help?” might not necessarily have the answer that you want. As for Health Insurance companies, they are all different and members have different coverage. It is best to check directly with your health insurance provider to see exactly what you are covered for (make sure you read the fine print). However, if you do need breast reconstruction procedures for any of the following make sure you check the Medicare rebates listed below: Bilateral Breast Reduction (Item no. 45520) – Medicare Rebate is $675.35 (1 side) Tubular Breast Reconstruction (Item no. 45559) – Medicare Rebate is $852.60 (1 side) Breast Augmentation for asymmetry (Item no. 45524) – Medicare Rebate $556.25 (1 side) Breast Implants for breast deformity (Item […]
Jenna's Breast Augmentation Big and Beautiful – Jenna’s Breast Augmentation with Dr Craig Rubinstein April 14, 2017 - Just recently we chatted to the remarkable Jenna, and we’re so excited to share her story with you. When Jenna was 22 she lost 35kg over a period of around 8 months. She was exercising and eating better than she had in years. But, even though she had always had naturally big breasts (GGG), when she lost the weight, her breasts went down 5 to 6 cup sizes! This was when Jenna decided she needed a breast lift and implants.
