Choosing to undergo surgery is an incredibly personal decision and when choosing your surgeon, it should be someone who is dedicated to achieving the best possible results for their patients.
Dedicated to his patients, Sydney-based Dr Pouria Moradi places an emphasis on finding the best surgical solution for you and will direct his strong academic and clinical background to help you understand what can be accomplished – for you – through surgery.
Factors such as pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight loss and the force of gravity can take a toll on a woman’s breasts. It is this cohort of women that have typically sought out the Breast Lift with Implants procedure with Dr Moradi. Dr Moradi’s winning approach (and results) with his Breast Lift with Implants procedure has ensured there are plenty of satisfied patients, enjoying their surgical results.
It is the loss of elasticity that often causes breasts to lose their shape and firmness. Any woman who has excessive skin or drooping breasts is a candidate for a breast lift and implants, according to Dr Moradi.
Also known as a breast augmentation mastopexy, this procedure has the combined benefits of enlarging the breasts and enhancing the shape, as well as tightening the skin and re-centring your nipples. The result is a more youthful breast shape, increased firmness and volume.
What to Expect with the Breast Lift with Implants Procedure
Dr Moradi’s anaesthetist will administer a general anaesthetic for the 1.5 to 2 hour operation. All surgeries are performed at a licenced and accredited private hospital. The procedure will involve removing excess skin and some underlying breast tissue in order to elevate and reshape the breast.
The Different Types of Incisions Made in A Breast Lift
The size and shape of your breasts, size of your areolas, extent of sagging, and the desired outcome are factors that will help Dr Moradi determine the best surgical incision for you. Incisions may be made using the following techniques:
Vertical or “Lollipop” Lift
A vertical lift resembles a lollipop-shaped incision made from the crease of the breast, travels vertically and surrounds the nipple. This technique allows Dr Moradi to remove excess skin and reshape the entire breast with modest, easily hidden scars.
This involves a circular incision running around the edge of the areola. Women who experience very mild sagging or desire a smaller areola size will benefit from a periareolar lift.
Inverted T or “Anchor” Lift
This technique involves 2 incisions; one vertically from the areola to the breast crease, and one along the breast fold. This technique is ideal for women with considerable sagging, pendulous breasts and require a significant amount of excess skin and tissue to be removed.
Who is the breast lift and implant for?
The suitable patient typically has sagging breasts, drooping of the nipples or asymmetry. The breast lift may be the perfect option for these women. The breast lift can enhance both the shape and size of your breasts.
An initial consultation with the experienced plastic surgeon, Dr Moradi will help you decide whether the breast lift and implants is the correct procedure for you. Dr Moradi will walk you through the entire treatment process and desired results.
Whilst recovery from breast implant removal surgery varies with each patient, most would agree that recovery from this surgery is usually smoother than the initial breast augmentation. This procedure isn’t recommended if you want to retain the size and appearance of your breasts with implants in place.
Most of Dr Moradi’s patients are able to return to work five days after a breast explant and report minimal discomfort after the surgery.
