This procedure involves correcting ptosis problems (sagging breasts and ageing of the breast) and the shape of the breast.

For breast shaping, it is the severity of the problem, the quality of your skin and your expectations that determine the types of incisions made by your surgeon.

To reshape and enhance your breasts, your surgeon will require between one and three hours for the operation. This most often takes place in outpatient surgery in hospital under general anaesthesia.

Although you do not need to withdraw from your social life, you are advised not to resume sporting activity before six weeks have elapsed.



While remodelling your breasts poses no danger to your pregnancy and your future feedings, the ideal is to have the mastopexy done first.

Why? Because a new pregnancy will most likely increase the volume of your breasts and may cancel out the effects of a mastopexy.

Every surgical procedure can involve a certain amount of risk and complications that the patient must accept; your plastic surgeon will make it his or her duty to reduce the rate of occurrence by choosing the technique best suited to your medical situation. Complications such as bleeding, wound or prosthesis infections and poor healing, although relatively rare, can occur with any type of surgery.
