Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, is a cosmetic/reconstructive procedure that raises and firms the breasts to give them a more youthful appearance. This is achieved by the removal of excess skin to tighten the remaining tissue and reshape the breast, giving it a more firm and uplifted appearance.
Over time, a woman’s breasts will change considerably, and often will lose their youthful appearance. These changes are most common due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuation and general ageing. Sometimes during these changes, the areola also becomes enlarged which can be a concern for some women. A breast lift is an effective way to reduce the size of the areola and correct breast sagging and/or unevenness. It is important to note that breast lift surgery does not increase the size of the breast. This can be achieved by a breast augmentation (insertion of implants), which is often performed in conjunction with a breast lift.
Breast Augmentation (Mammoplasty)
Breast Augmentation (sometimes referred to as Mammoplasty), is a cosmetic procedure which generally involves the insertion of breast implants beneath the natural breast tissue in order to enhance your natural anatomy and increase the volume or size of the breast.
There are many reasons that a patient may consider undergoing a breast augmentation. The most common being;
- increase volume and enlarge small breasts
- restore loss of volume due to weight loss, pregnancy or breastfeeding
- decrease asymmetry or size differences between the breast
- improve proportion of overall figure
