Breast Lift / Mastopexy

Is Mastopexy (breast lift) right for you?

Let Us Help You Choose:

  • Breast Uplift surgery corrects drooping sagging breasts for a more youthful ‘perky’ appearance.
  • With or without breast implants (the Minus – Plus Procedure): personalised surgery giving the best possible results for your unique proportions and you desired outcome
  • The safest & most reliable surgical technique: Lollipop rather than anchor scars: better shape, more projection and long lasting results
  • State-of-the-art post operative aftercare: for confidence and peace of mind.

A Mastopexy or Breast uplift surgery can raise sagging breast tissues by tightening excess loose breast skin and raising the breast higher on the chest wall. This can also improve fullness as well as projection of the breast. Breast lift surgery may be combined with Breast implants and also with liposuction of the front of the armpits and along the bra strap areas.

When you come for your consult, we can use our experience to give appropriate recommendations for your individual circumstances. Our focus is always to give you as natural a result as possible while taking into account your particular issues and desires.

Information about breast lift / mastopexy surgery

Restoring your breasts to a lovely shape can become reality, thanks to the expertise of Dr Georgina Konrat, one of a very few fully qualified and experienced female Cosmetic surgeons in Queensland. Dr Konrat has made a particular study of remedial breast surgery: her goal is always to provide women with the best visual and well-being outcome, whatever the circumstances.  As a woman, she has an “insider’s understanding” of how a woman likes to look and feel.  Dr Konrat uses the very latest techniques in breast lift surgery to achieve the most natural result.

Mastopexy or Breast Lift is an operation designed to treat Ptosis (‘droop’) of the breast by moving the nipple-areola complex to their normal position and tightening the skin and breast tissue to improve the shape and projection of the breasts. The nipple is never cut off or removed in this operation.

Ptosis, or breast droop, is a normal aging process and is a result of many factors, including the impact of post-pregnancy and breast-feeding, or the results of weight loss.  The normal anatomical position of the nipple is in line with the fold under the breast (when looking at oneself side-on in the mirror) or at the midpoint of the upper arm.

Patient journey for breast lift surgery

Pre-Operation

  • An in-depth consultation (approximately one hour) with Dr Georgina Konrat.
  • Dr Konrat will ask important questions about you and your health (your medical history). She will examine your breasts, take photographs to aid in the diagnosis of your concerns, and help plan the appropriate surgical procedure is that is found to be the best option.
  • You will be given an information kit to take home. We understand that you may not remember or understand everything you hear in the consultation, so we encourage you to make notes as soon as possible after the consultation, and call or email Dr Konrat with any concerns or questions you may have about the surgery.
  • At least one week prior to surgery, blood tests will be taken and pre-operative mammogram screening is recommended.
  • In order to have the best healing result, Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic recommends that you:
    • Eat a diet rich in vegetables, fish, fruit and salads
    • Commence taking Vitamins C and D, Zinc and Selenium.

Risks and potential complications of breast lift surgery

Risks specific to breast lift surgery / Mastopexy

Infection

  • Antibiotics are given at the time of surgery and for one week post-operatively;
  • Further surgery may be required to improve scars if severe infection occurs;
