A look into the breast lift journey

1 hour

A relaxed, no obligation consultation

Every procedure starts with a private, no-commitment conversation with either Richard or Kim, the founding surgeons of 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 a surgeon can see you straight away ask yourself why they aren’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 a 2 – 3 month wait time.

1-2 weeks

Prepare for surgery

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.

1-2 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

By 6-8 weeks, 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 post-operative complimentary laser or LED scar treatment.

Frequently asked questions

all about Breast Lifts

The best candidates for breast lift surgery are healthy people whose breasts have drooped and may be causing back and neck pain.

Yes! Your breasts will definitely be more perky afterwards and you may even be able to go bra-free.

Yes, most women can still breastfeed after breast surgery. It is important to note, however, up to 40% of women are unable to breast feed even without breast surgery. That said, a breast lift is usually an operation performed after you have finished breast feeding.

There is a small chance of losing sensation to the nipple, or even losing part or all of the nipple-areola itself, as a result of breast lift. We also reduce the size (diameter) of the areola so the nipple is in proportion to the new breast size.

All surgery leaves scars. Most scars will fade in time, about 6-12 months, but the scars will be there in some form forever. Some people make pale, thin scars, while others tend to make thicker scars. Breast scars are generally minimal and we use silicone taping and laser treatments to ensure you get the best possible scars.

A breast lift will leave a scar around the areola, (the darker skin around the nipple), one vertically (up-and-down) under the areola, and one horizontally (side-to-side) in the fold beneath the breast. These will typically be hidden by your bra after the surgery.

It really depends what sort of work you do however you can often return after a couple of weeks.

Yes! But you need to meet certain criteria which we will discuss as part of your consultation.
The Medicare item number is 45558, so check with your insurance company if you are covered for this item number.

Our breast lift surgical fee is $13,000. This includes follow up appointments, post-operative garment, silicone tape, gel, two scar treatments and a complimentary PT consultation to assist your recovery.

In addition to this, there is an anaesthetist fee of $2,000 and additional hospital fees. A more detailed and complete quote will be provided at your initial consult, with the relevant hospital providing their fees 24-48 hours after your appointment.
