Over time, a woman’s breasts change due to pregnancy, weight fluctuation, breastfeeding, ageing and gravity. The skin loses its elasticity, and so the breast firmness and shape are lost over time, which leads to sagging of the breast.
Mastopexy surgery raises and firms the breasts. Excess skin gets removed, and the surrounding tissue tightened to reshape and support the new breast.
A variety of techniques are available, and Dr du Toit will discuss this with you and choose the correct procedure to achieve maximal lift fitting for your body type.
During your consultation, she will also discuss the different scars, the possible risks, and you will be free to raise any concerns.
The procedure is done under general anaesthetic and takes about one and a half to two hours. Expect an initial recovery period of about ten days.
