Breast Lift With Implants - Sydney Plastic Surgeon Dr. Choy
Ageing, having children and weight loss can all cause your breasts to lose firmness, which can lead to a deflated appearance. This is a common complaint for many women. Breast lift surgery, however, can create a firmer, ‘perkier’ appearance.
A breast uplift 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 which creates a firmer cone of breast tissue and the nipple is moved to a higher position to give a more youthful and firm appearance. A breast enlargement or breast reduction may also be required at the same time in order to create the results you want.
If you have sagging breasts and a loss of fullness in the top portion of your breasts, you are likely a candidate for the procedure. It’s normal for the breasts to sag as you grow older. The breasts, like the rest of the body, tend to sag with age. The sagging can be exacerbated by childbirth, genetics, stretch marks on the breast skin, weight gain, and weight loss.
To address the issue of loss of volume or fullness in the breast, a breast augmentation (implant) is often recommended at the same time as the lift. The breast implant fills up the extra skin of the breast, restoring the fullness that was in the upper aspect of the breasts.
“From a young age, I knew I wasn’t the same as other girls,” a patient who recently had a breast lift with implants confides. My breasts were “severely asymmetrical,” she continues, a condition she later identified as tuberous breast deformity.
The appearance of her breasts had a tremendous impact on her self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence, throughout her teens and early 20s. It was also such a difficult topic to discuss that “I didn’t even tell my mother till I was about 23 years old.” That’s when she started researching surgeons.
Finding the right surgeon is crucial not only to exceptional results but also to patient safety, as well. Patients like this one should only trust their consultation and procedure to experts proven in this complex yet rewarding surgery, such as Dr Ellis Choy, in Sydney.
One of the hallmarks of a qualified surgeon is their attention to their patients’ needs. Do they spend ample time understanding the issues from the patient’s perspective? Do they fully acquaint themselves with the patient’s symptoms, anatomy and ultimate goals, as Dr Choy does? Surgery can be transformative for both body and spirit — but only when it meticulously accomplishes the patient’s goals.
Her results have had a nearly indescribable impact on her life. “I feel more confident, and this has already translated and affected every aspect of my life.” She can wear clothes now she never dreamed of putting on before. “I am amazed at my results.” Beautiful results like these are possible when you select a highly-qualified, specialist plastic surgeon who places his full emphasis on achieving the results you want, through a wholly customised course of treatment and the safest, most advanced surgical methods.
