Frequently Asked Questions
How much is a breast lift?
The cost of breast lift surgery is different per patient and so for this reason, it’s best to organise a consultation with Associate Professor Dean White.
Can exercise lift the brests?
Unfortunately, the breasts are not muscle, and so exercise will not lift the breast tissue up. However, it will build the muscle underneath the breast tissue to firm up the chest.
How is breast lift surgery performed?
The surgeon makes an incision around the areola, and also an incision extending down the breast to the crease. Through this incision, excess skin is removed and the overall breast tissue is rehaped to raise the breasts up.
Can you have a breast lift without scars?
Scars are an inevitable part of any invasive surgery. However, Dean White will minimise scarring and keep them as hidden as possible. You will also receive scar management advice following your breast lift.
Should I get a breast lift before or after pregnancy?
It is recommended to have a breast lift after pregnancy and breastfeeding as these will cause your breasts to sag down more than usual. However, it is possible to have a breast lift before pregnancy, but it may in some situations impact your ability to breastfeed properly.
Should you get a breast lift?
Whether or not you should get a breast lift is purely up to you. It is a cosmetic procedure and works better for women who has breasts which droop or sag down. Generally if your nipple is pointing down, it’s a good indication that a breast lift could benefit you.
