Breast Lift in Bundaberg and Mackay Queensland - Pacific Plastic Surgery and Elite Cosmetic Clinics
Youthful, perky breasts provide sensual contours and can accentuate the entire body frame. However, aging and other factors can lead to considerable sag, or droop, of the breasts. A breast lift at our Bundaberg or Mackay, Queensland-area facilities can do wonders for your bustline, tightening the skin and lifting the breasts to a more desirable position.
Droopiness of the breasts is a common issue that affects millions of women. Due to a variety of factors, women often experience breast sag that affects the types of clothes they can wear and the body aesthetic in general, not to mention their self-esteem. Some of the causes of breast droop include:
- Weight loss
A breast lift from our plastic surgeon serving the Mackay and Bundaberg, Queensland region can improve the look of the breasts by lifting them to a higher position and removing excess skin. This greatly enhances the contour and feel of the breasts and can give you an improved self-confidence and a sexy, youthful-looking bustline.

Breast Lift Procedure
The breast lift procedure, medically known as mastopexy, is a relatively quick outpatient visit with minimal recovery time. Our plastic surgeon will make an incision from the areola (the dark-pigmented area around the nipple) down to the crease of the breast. After removing excess skin, Dr. James Gaffield will tighten the remaining skin and reshape the breasts. The nipples will be moved to a higher position along with the breasts. The result is a much tighter and firmer look and feel to the breasts, giving them a more vibrant, "perky" appearance. The breast lift procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes about two hours or less to complete. Breast lift can often be combined with other procedures, such as tummy tuck and lip augmentation to give you an even more complete aesthetic makeover. It can also be used as part of our post-pregnancy makeover for new moms.
Breast Lift Recovery
You should expect some degree of swelling, bruising and numbness after a breast lift. These side effects should completely dissipate after two to three weeks, and any discomfort can be managed with medication. A small number of breast lift patients experience areas of permanent numbness, however this is a very rare event. After about a week, you should be able to get back to your normal daily routine. Dr. James Gaffield will explain all aspects of breast lift surgery, including risks, benefits, and details of recovery, at your initial consultation.
Breast Lift with Implants
For women who would like an even more dramatic improvement to their bustlines, breast implants can be inserted in tandem with a breast lift to enlarge the breasts while lifting them to a higher position at the same time. This procedure gets rid of the tell-tale signs of breast droop and gives you a larger bust that is more proportionate to your body frame, in addition to a newly contoured, curvy figure that can make you look years younger. Dr. James Gaffield is one of the most skilled and respected breast augmentation surgeons in the area, and will work with you to achieve your enhancement goals.
