A lot of women find that they lose breast volume after pregnancy and breast feeding, or weight loss, leaving them with drooping breasts. While a breast lift can remove the loose skin, lifting the breast and giving it a better shape, if you want to restore or increase the volume, then breast augmentation can be performed at the same time as the lift.
A breast lift together with breast augmentation is performed under a general anaesthetic, with the operation taking 2-3 hours. It is usually performed as a day-stay or overnight-stay procedure in Sydney. Following mastopexy or breast augmentation it is important to restrict yourself to light activities, with no lifting or heavy duties for 7-10 days. *Most patients can drive and return to work within 10 days of the surgery.
