With time, it’s not uncommon for women to find that their breasts have lost their shape and firmness due to factors such as pregnancy, nursing, aging and gravity. A breast lift in Sydney can reverse these effects, helping to restore a more youthful breast appearance. This relatively simple procedure is an effective way to improve breast shape and firmness for long-term results.

Your Treatment with Dr. Tim
Dr. Tim personalizes each breast lift to match the specific needs of the patient. Utilizing the most advanced procedural techniques to ensure safety, Dr. Tim produces beautiful results.

What to Expect
Breast lift begins with a series of incisions, which may be modified depending on the degree of correction needed. Dr. Tim first creates an incision around the areola (the dark area of skin surrounding the nipple), followed by a vertical incision down the underside of the breast, and then a third horizontal incision along the breast crease. These incisions allow Dr. Tim to effectively lift and reshape the breasts and nipples for a more youthful appearance.
Depending on your exact needs, underlying tissue is reshaped to improve the breast firmness. If there is insufficient tissue to create the projection you want, a breast implant may be added. The areola may be reduced, and the nipples are commonly moved upward on the breasts for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Tim will end the procedure by removing any excess skin, and closing the incisions.
Results for breast lift surgery are immediate, but final results may emerge over several weeks as swelling subsides. Most women who choose Dr. Tim for a breast lift find that their breasts are firmer and possess a more youthful shape. Dr. Tim also takes every measure to ensure women maintain nipple sensation and the ability to breast feed to ensure a smooth transition from surgery to everyday life.
Sometimes, patients find that they can’t achieve the fullness they desire with only a breast lift. Dr. Tim often recommends combining a breast life with breast augmentation to enhance the shape and size of a patient’s breasts. Also, many mums will combine a breast lift with liposuction or a tummy tuck to restore their bodies after giving birth. Dr. Tim assists women in finding the most effective procedures to match their cosmetic goals.
