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.

Although every surgical procedure may involve some risks and complications that the patient has no option but to accept, your aesthetic surgeon will make a point of reducing their likelihood of appearing by choosing the technique best suited to your medical condition. Complications such as bleeding, wound or prosthetic infections and healing failure, although relatively rare, can occur with any type of surgery.
