About Breast Lift Surgery
Breast lift surgery firms and reshapes the breast without increasing actual breast size or weight. Loss of skin elasticity, gravity and other factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding ultimately affect the shape and firmness of the breasts.
Where a woman has lost a significant amount of breast volume over time, implants may be inserted in conjunction with a breast lift to increase fullness. This procedure is known as SAMBA (Simultaneous Areola Masteopexy Breast Augmentation). The breasts are enlarged with an implant and the breast skin tightened by removing skin around the areola (the pigmented skin around the nipple). The skin is drawn together like a purse string around the new areola, which has usually been reduced in size. There is no scar from the areola to the crease under the breast as no incision is made
Mr Mutimer also performs nipple correction surgery. In cases where nipples and areolas (the pigmented skin surrounding the nipples) point downward, the nipples and areolas can be repositioned. Mr Mutimer can also correct unevenly sized breasts and irregular breast shapes.
A breast lift can be performed at any age, but Mr Mutimer recommends waiting until breast development has stopped. Pregnancy and breast-feeding may have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of the breasts. Since the milk ducts and nipples are left intact, breast lift surgery usually will not affect your ability to breast-feed.
Initial consultation: Meet Mr Mutimer for a 30 min consultation where you will discuss your breast lift in detail, the technique to be used and expected recovery time. Photos will be taken. Following this you will meet with our Patient Advisor who will take you through costs and discuss potential dates for your surgery.
Pre-operative appointment: 2 weeks prior to your breast surgery you will meet Dr Mutimer again for a final consultation. You will also meet with the Patient Advisor and Practice Nurse to finalise all administration, and discuss pre and post-operative care instructions. Payment for your procedure is also finalised.
