Why choose a breast lift and implants?
Mastopexy is surgery that allows lifting of the sagging breast, repositioning the nipple–areolar complex and re-coning the breast tissues. Where breast augmentation to restore or supplement volume is also appropriate, a combined procedure may be undertaken.
Over time, breasts can show signs of both deflation and sagging. The surrounding suspensory ligaments, as well as the skin envelope which help maintain the breast glandular tissue in place, lose their elasticity. This causes the breast to sag. This is compounded by deflation of the breast glandular tissue, often due to breastfeeding, general ageing and hormonal exposures. Some patients want not only to have their breasts restored to a more youthful appearance, but also to have their size augmented with implants. At Panthea Clinics, our breast implants are of the highest quality and come with a lifetime guarantee supplied by the manufacturer.

There is some discomfort associated with surgery. Although most patients report a tightness rather than pain due to excellent pain control regime we utilise which includes local anaesthetic for the immediate postoperative period as well as powerful analgesics.
Will the shape of my breasts change during the recovery phase?
The breasts will not only heal during the first 6 weeks, but will also gradually find their natural postoperative position. Gravity, healing and surgery drive this process.
The final shape is usually reached by 3 months. The incision scars will fade over the first 12 months and will often be barely visible beyond the first year.
When will I be able to resume normal activity?
Within 2 weeks you will be back at work and be able to resume most normal activities. During the subsequent weeks you will return to your pre-surgery levels of activity. We have a postoperative regime to help you through this time.
Where will the scars be placed?
Your scars are routinely placed under the breast fold hidden from view. Not only does bras or swimwear hide the scar, in time it will fade and be barely perceptible.
