Breast Lift With Implants - Sydney Plastic Surgeon Dr. Choy
It’s normal for the breasts to sag as you grow older. The breasts, like the rest of the body, tend to droop and loose firmness with age. The sagging can increase with pregnancy, genetics, weight gain and weight loss. Breast lift surgery can create a firmer, ‘perkier’ appearance.
A breast lift or mastopexy can lift and reshape your breasts. The surgery involves removing excess skin from either underneath the breast or around the areola. The skin is tightened, creating a firmer cone of breast tissue, and the nipple is moved to a higher position to give a more aesthetic and proportionate appearance.
If you have sagging breasts and a loss of fullness in the top portion of your breasts, a breast augmentation (implant) and breast lift may address your concerns. The breast implant fills up the extra skin of the breast, restoring the fullness that was in the upper aspect of the breasts.
If you are considering a breast lift with implants, ensure you select a highly-qualified, Specialist Plastic Surgeon like Dr Choy. Dr Choy places his full emphasis on bringing your aesthetic vision to life through a wholly customised course of treatment and advanced surgical methods.

Making an Informed Decision
Undergoing plastic surgery is a significant decision that should be made only after careful consideration of all aspects involved, including the potential risks and complications.
General Risks and Complications
There are general risks and complications that apply to most plastic surgery procedures. These are discussed in detail on our Risks and Complications page.
Specific Risks and Complications
In addition to those that apply generally to plastic surgery, each individual procedure comes with its own specific risks and complications. For combined breast lift and augmentation, these include:
- Asymmetry in breast shape or nipple placement
- Partial or total loss of the nipples or areolae
- Changes in nipple or breast sensation
- Chronic breast pain
- Breastfeeding challenges
- Capsular contracture
- Implant rupture or leak
- Implant rippling or wrinkling
- Implant displacement
- Interference with mammography
- Breast implant illness (BII)
- Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)
Request a consultation with Dr Choy for a detailed discussion of these considerations. Dr Choy will conduct a thorough risk assessment based on your individual factors and outline the measures that can be taken to minimise these risks. He and his team are here to support your decision-making process, providing all the information you need to make well-informed choices about your care.
