Breast Lift Before and After - Journey 7


A breast lift or mastopexy is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape breasts that sit lower on the chest. This is achieved by removing excess skin and repositioning the nipple and areola higher on the chest wall.


These clinical photographs are of a 35-year-old woman before surgery and 4 months after mastopexy (breast lift) surgery. This Avery patient’s goal was to reduce sagging (ptosis) of the breasts as well as correcting slight asymmetry.


The scars that result from breast lift surgery are similar to those seen with breast reduction surgery and are often referred to as anchor scars due to their shape. The nipple/areola were also repositioned higher on the breast, this contributes to an overall lifted appearance to the breasts. Scars will fade over time, with 12-18 months the typical time to scar maturation.

Patients considering any form of surgery will need to come in for a consultation with Dr Avery to discuss your expectations, along with the surgical options for how these can be achieved. During your consultation with the Avery team, we will ensure that the surgery you are considering is the appropriate choice for you.

At Avery, we welcome the opportunity to have an open conversation with you to understand the changes you are looking for with surgery. Our patients’ stories matter a great deal to us.

Wherever you are on your personal journey, we would like to assist you. Your reasons for having surgery and your expectations from surgery are important conversations to have before undergoing surgery. Dr Avery will also assess your health and medical history to ensure any surgical procedure you are considering is a safe and appropriate choice for you.
