Re. Plastic Surgery

Breast Lift & Breast Augmentation

We understand that every individual’s aesthetic ideals are unique so we offer personalised solutions with extensive consultation to help achieve your goals.

Some patients seeking breast enhancement may find that when sagging or loose skin is present, opting solely for breast augmentation with implants may not provide the desired results and impact longevity. This can be avoided with a breast lift to correct ptosis, significant asymmetry, breast laxity, or other barriers to optimal results.

We typically recommend conducting these as two separate procedures for a safer option which often yields better results but some patients will qualify to do it as a two-in-one.

We may also recommend a two-stage procedure if we feel you will get a good result from just a single surgery. We stress the importance of transparency and mitigating risk so encourage patients to make an informed decision and avoid any unnecessary surgery.

A look into the Breast Augmentation journey

1 hour

A relaxed, no obligation consultation

Every procedure starts with a private, no-commitment conversation with either Richard or Kim, our head surgeons at Re. Plastic Surgery. We want to know your dream body and how we can help you reach that goal.

2-3 months

Your first appointment

Our surgeons’ wait lists are constantly changing but prepare for a 2-3 month wait to have your first consultation. This is a good thing! If your surgeon can see you straight away ask yourself why he isn’t busy operating or in high demand. These consultations last around an hour with your surgeon taking your pre-surgery photos, explaining what’s involved in an operation and understanding your desired outcomes. You’ll also have an in-depth, personal quote with our surgical co-ordinator that is valid for 3 months.

2-3 months

Your surgery date

Once you’ve paid your deposit for your surgery, wait times will fluctuate depending on time of the year and your procedure, but allow for 2-3 months wait time.

We know this an exciting transformation so we promise to be there every step of the way, from pre-surgery consults, check ins with your surgeon all the way to post-op laser and LED appointments with our dermal clinician.

1-2 weeks

Book in and prepare for surgery

When you’re ready, we’ll book your procedure. We know this is an exciting transformation, so we promise to be there every step of the way, from pre-surgery consults, check-ins with your surgeon all the way to post-op laser and LED appointments with our dermal therapist.

1 day

Day of procedure

You will wake up in the recovery bay of the hospital and your breasts will feel swollen but comfortable. You’ll be wearing your complimentary post-surgical bra to support your new breast shape. Most patients will stay a night in hospital for monitoring and the best aftercare.

6-8 weeks

The early days

The first 48-72 hours are mildly uncomfortable but will be well controlled with pain medication. It is okay to shower and get your dressings wet and you can sleep in any position that’s comfortable. By week two, you can begin to ease back into light physical activities. Most patients are able to comfortably start driving.

6-8 weeks

Your recovery journey

You would be back to your normal daily routine and enjoying your new shape. Normal post-operative bruising and swelling should be gone, and your scars will begin to fade and diminish. You are able to fully resume normal exercise. At the end of this period you will have your first postoperative complimentary laser or LED scar treatment.

Frequently asked questions

All about Breast Lifts + Augmentations

We understand how exciting the prospect of a reshaped body can be and how quickly you want to get it over and done with, but combining these two procedures can be complicated and risky.

Performing two separate operations will significantly reduce the risks to you and reduce the chances of needing revisional procedures, but the pros and cons of each option for you will be discussed at your consultation.

Most importantly, we’ll discuss what size and shape of implants will best suit your body type.

The first thing your surgeon will discuss with you is your breast goals. Do you want a natural shape, round appearance or subtle increase? A breast enlargement or a breast enhancement. Then your surgeon will examine your breast and chest dimensions and present a number of options.

At Re. we then use the latest 3D simulation software to give you an accurate guide as to what your implants will look like on your own photos, which you will also be able to access after your consultation.

Finally, we will show you what the size implant actually looks like and you get to try it on under your clothes.

Everybody’s different. We’ll look at how much breast tissue you naturally have, particularly in your upper pole. Then we take into consideration the size of implant you have chosen and discuss your personal preference and lifestyle activities. Based on all of this we will recommend the best placement for you.

There is no one perfect implant, just an implant perfect for each individual patient. Your choice will depend on your body type, the final look you’re after, and your existing breast tissue.

Yes. If this is your goal, we will work with you to ensure your breasts look as natural as possible.

Modern implants can last many years and may never need to be replaced. Forget what you’ve heard about implants needing to be replaced at 10 years. At Re. we only use Mentor breast implants. Their commitment to safety, feel and shape as well as their record of excellence in the industry makes them the highest quality implants available.

After breast surgery you can sleep in whatever position you find most comfortable. Your breasts will feel slightly uncomfortable for two to three days after the surgery. This can usually be well-handled with normal painkillers.
