MUMMY MAKEOVER AT OUR SYDNEY CLINIC
So family is complete and the little chirrups are behaving like angels, finally there is some time to have a little think about what’s next for a Sydney mum? Been eating well, exercising, the weight has come off but there are still tell tales of the bringing into this world the next generation of well-balanced human beings who will inherit the post COIVD-19 world. Stretch marks on the abdomen, sagging and/or deflated breasts are there to remind you of the journey.
MUMMY MAKEOVER 101 : THE BREAST SURGERY
So what are the surgical options for breast rejuvenation? The short answer is, that it depends. If the only issue is loss of volume, the nipples are above the now famous inframammary fold (IMF), then a straightforward simple breast augmentation with implant would do the trick reliably and nicely. Look at our other blogs on this topic:

If however, the breast shape and position of the nipples is affected but overall your volume is good, then perhaps all you need is a simple breast lift surgery at our clinic in Sydney or Canberra. Vertical pattern mastopexy or breast lift gives excellent, reliable outcomes.
Finally, if the shape, volume and position of the nipples are all affected and need addressing then a lift and augmentation is the best solution. From a clinical standpoint the upper pole of the breast, if deflated and empty, can only be filled with either an implant or with fat injection. From a clinical standpoint the evidence is very clear, implants give a more reliable outcome in comparison to fat injection. They predictably raise the upper pole of the breast by approximately 2 cm. Their volume is easily determined and is not subject to resorption but comes with its own complication profile. See our blogs on this topic:
This surgery involves -recreating the breast mound by manipulating its three components nipples, parenchyma and skin envelope. By reducing the skin, reconning the breast tissues and repositioning the nipples a new breast mound is created. Now to add volume an implant is also inserted. This can be done through a vertical pattern lift incision or an anchor “Wise” pattern incision. A couple of drains are inserted and usually removed the next day to reduce the risk of infections and capsular contractures. The recovery process for this component of mummy makeover is very similar to a primary breast augmentation in our Sydney or Canberra clinics. In our next blog we will discuss fat injection in this settings of mummy makeover.
