Mastopexy is performed in the operating theatre as a day procedure in a fully accredited hospital.  This procedure usually takes approximately 3 hours.


Following a breast lift surgery, wearing a soft bra is recommended for the first 6 weeks. It is also important to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activity during this time to promote wound healing. We will provide you with a personalized post-operative instruction and scar management plan.

Risks associated with Breast Lift

Even with a highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, mastopexy, like any surgical procedure, can be associated with potential risks.

Choosing an experienced, qualified and highly trained reconstructive surgeon will minimize the risk and complications.

  • Unable to breastfeed.
  • Development of a collection of blood outside blood vessels, resembling a bruise, known as a haematoma which may require drainage.
