Rejuvenate Your Bust Line with Breast Lift Surgery


Whether due to pregnancy, dramatic weight loss, or the simple passage of time, a woman’s breasts can begin to sag. This sagging, clinically known as breast ptosis, can cause a woman to become self-conscious about her appearance and develop a negative self-image. As a result, many women choose to undergo breast lift surgery to rejuvenate their breasts and improve their self-esteem. With these patients in mind, Dr. Phil Richardson is pleased to offer breast lift surgery of the most surpassing standard at his Brisbane, Queensland plastic surgery practice.

At Brisbane Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, breast lift surgery is performed to improve the contour of the breasts, increase firmness, raise the position of the nipples, and reduce the size of the areolas. Our highly trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Philip Richardson, customises the breast lift procedure to the unique needs and aesthetic goals of each individual patient. For women who would like to increase the size of or add volume to their breasts in addition to raising them to a higher, more attractive position on the chest, Dr. Richardson can combine the breast lift procedure with breast augmentation.

If you would like to find out whether you are a good candidate for breast lift surgery at our practice serving the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, and communities throughout Queensland, please schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Richardson today.

The Breast Lift Procedure

Dr. Richardson performs breast lift, clinically known as mastopexy, at our Brisbane practice using a general anaesthetic. Dr. Richardson can complete the breast lift procedure using a number of methods, including the Wise pattern technique and minimal scarring techniques such as the Lejour and Benelli methods. Dr. Richardson discusses each of these options in detail with his patients, along with answering any questions they might have about breast surgery, during their initial consultations.


As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with breast lift surgery. These risks include the risks associated with all surgeries, such as a negative reaction to the general anaesthetic, infection, severe bleeding, bruising, swelling, and keloid scarring. Other risks that are specific to the breast lift procedure include asymmetry, loss of sensation to the nipple or breast skin, and bottoming out of the breast. Patients should note, however, that these effects are not common, and our highly experienced surgeon does everything possible to ensure a positive outcome.

After Surgery

Our nurses contact patients the day after breast lift surgery at our Queensland plastic surgery practice to make sure that there are no problems. Additionally, Dr. Richardson sees patients at regular intervals during their recovery from breast lift surgery in order to check on their progress (the cost of these visits is included in the initial operation fee). Patients should wear the post-operative bra given to them for the first six weeks following surgery to ensure proper support and healing. Driving should be avoided for two weeks after surgery and rigorous exercise should be avoided for at least six weeks.
