Breast Augmentation and Lift Surgery

The breast lift component aims to reshape the breasts and address breast sag, while the breast augmentation component works to restore lost volume and achieve a fuller upper pole appearance. The upper pole refers to the upper part of the chest where volume loss often occurs after pregnancy, breast feeding or weight loss. The procedure is commonly performed for women who have both deflated and ptotic (sagging) breasts. The procedure can also re-lift the nipple to achieve a more favourable contour and position.

For women who suffer from asymmetrical (uneven) breasts—whether this be breast volume, shape or nipple position—an augmentation mastopexy procedure can be customised to help correct this concern. If you’re having this procedure to address the changes that have occurred after childbirth, breast-feeding, significant weight loss, or for uneven breasts, then you may also be entitled to a medicare and health fund rebates for mastopexy and breast augmentation surgery.

Although more challenging, Dr Chaithan Reddy routinely performs his augmentation mastopexy procedures as 1-stage surgery. Whilst a two-stage procedure has a higher predictability with respect to outcomes, you will have to also consider this in the context of your financial obligations, additional post-operative recovery and downtime associated with a two-stage approach.
