Breast Lift

Lift and reshape

Unfortunately our breasts come equipped with very little natural support. They’re left defenceless against the ravages of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss and gravity, which equates to a loss of shape, firmness and the dreaded sag.

Since our breasts have a huge impact on how attractive and feminine we feel, they also have a huge impact on our confidence. That’s why breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is more than a vanity. It can make a big difference to women’s lives.

In addition to reshaping and firming your breasts, lifting them and reducing the size of your areola, breast lift surgery can be combined with breast augmentation if you’d also like to see an increase in size.

Take the next step to new breasts today.

Dr Jeremy Hunt has performed hundreds of breast surgeries on women of all ages, from enlargements and reductions to lifts and reconstructions, but the end result is always the same – increased confidence and big smiles. Most women say it’s the best thing they’ve ever done for themselves.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health professional.



Is it for me?


If you’d like your breasts restored to their former glory (or indeed, to look and feel better than they ever have!), you’re an ideal candidate for breast lift surgery.

What's involved?


During your one-on-one consultation with Dr Hunt, you’ll discuss what you’re hoping to achieve and he’ll answer any questions or concerns you may have. He’ll then evaluate your current situation, and discuss the best approach for achieving your desired results. This will be based on a combination of factors including your age, the size and shape of your breasts, the condition of your skin and the amount of ‘lift’ that will be necessary.

If you choose to go ahead with your breast lift surgery, it will be performed in the hospital of your choice, under a general anesthetic administered by one of Dr Hunt’s hand-selected anesthetists.

Several surgery techniques can be used, and Dr Hunt will choose the best one for you. For example, if you have small breasts and minimal sagging, you may be a candidate for short-scar surgery such as the ‘doughnut’ (periareolar mastopexy), in which circular incisions are made around the areola only.

When can I go home?


You can go home as soon as you are comfortable and able to get to the bathroom, which may be on the same day as your surgery, or may be the morning after. Once you get home, you should limit your movements to around the house for two to three days.

Will I have to return for post-operative care?


You will return to see Dr Hunt within the first five days after your surgery. You’ll then return at two weeks, three months, and 12 months.

How long will I be off work?


You will need to take a week off work.

When can I resume my normal activities?


You should restrict all physical activity for two weeks, after which you can return to your normal activities. However, you must protect your breasts from stretching activities for at least six weeks to allow the incisions to heal.

When will I see the end result?


It can take anything from a few months to a year to see the final result of your breast lift surgery.

How much will a breast lift cost me?


There are several different elements to take into consideration when determining the final cost of breast lift surgery. At a high level, surgeon, hospital and anaesthetist fees all need to be taken into account. Surgical costs start to differ between patients when specific requirements come into play. Not all patients only require a breast lift, some also choose to insert implants to achieve their desired outcome. In other instances, patients choose to incorporate a breast lift into a more comprehensive surgical plan, which would also alter the costs. In terms of whether your health insurer will cover some of the costs of this procedure, this would depend on your specific circumstances. You may need to get approval from Medicare before any of the costs will be covered. To get a more accurate picture of what you can expect to pay for this surgery, it’s best to schedule a consultation with Dr Hunt.
