Breast Lift and Implants Sydney
Women choose to have a breast lift and implant together when they want to raise, enlarge and firm breasts that are drooping or sagging.
Sagginess and drooping breasts are caused by the stretching of the collagen fibres, which are meant to support and retain the structure of the breasts. However ageing and changes to the volume of the breasts post pregnancy and breast feeding cause this stretching.
The breast implants with lift, also known as the augmentation-mastopexy is suitable for women who have drooping, sagging and asymmetrical breasts. The surgery is common for women to restore breast volume and shape after pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight loss.
The combined operation raises, enlarges, firms and gives better contour to the breasts.
What is a breast lift?
The breast lift, also known as the mastopexy is a surgical procedure to raise the breasts and remove sagginess or drooping. This is done by removing excess skin to tighten the surrounding tissue and support a better contour. It's common for the internal tissue to be reshaped as well.
What are breast implants?
Breast implants are inserted beneath the breasts to enlarge them, either under or above the pectoral muscle. The implant size differs per patient, as it depends on individual circumstances such as:
- What size breasts you want
- Breast anatomy, elasticity and thickness
- Body type
Specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr Pouria Moradi uses Motiva Silicone Gel-filled Breast implants. The gel-filling provides a more natural feeling and aesthetics.
During an initial consultation with Dr Pouria Moradi, he will decide whether you are the suitable patient for these procedures and which implant is best to achieve the aesthetics that you are looking for, and where the implant should be placed.

One or two-stage breast implant with lift?
Dr Pouria Moradi prefers the one stage breast implant with lift. He will recommend it to 95% of his patients.
However both the one and two stage surgeries outweigh one another, it comes down to the surgeon's preference.
Why does Dr Pouria Moradi prefer the one-stage?
Dr Pouria Moradi tells patients that there is only a 5-40% chance of a second surgery, however with a two-stage there is a 100% chance of a second surgery. The one-stage surgery also allows him to tailor breast lift to the chosen breast implant.
The larger the implant, the smaller the breast lift will be.

What are the potential risks and complications of a breast lift?
Some possible complications and risks specific to breast lift surgery include:

- Seroma accumulation under the breast. This fluid may need to be drained under ultrasound guidance.
- Visible and prominent scars including keloid and hypertrophic scars
- Swelling and bruising around the breasts which takes two to three months to settle
- Fat necrosis of the breast. This is a result of poor blood supply to the fat cells. These show themselves as small firm lumps.
- Changes in breast and nipple sensation
- Temporary or permanent areas of numbness around the scars
- Asymmetry of the breasts
- Partial or total loss of nipple and areola
- Need for further surgery to treat complications
- Revisional surgery to correct any unevenness between the two sides
- A blood clot in the legs (DVT), which can move to the lungs and may be life threatening
