Breast Lift Sydney

About the treatment

As we age, our breasts naturally and gradually lose their shape. When the ligaments in the breast tissue stretch and lose elasticity, the area can become droopy, loose and start to sag. This process may be exacerbated by pregnancy—when the skin of the breast is stretched further. As a result, breast fullness is compromised, often causing uncomfortable strain on the neck, back and shoulders. As the breast’s support system of tissue and fat naturally begin to diminish, the ensuing sagging can also make us self-conscious about our appearance.

Shape Clinic’s breast lift surgery helps to lift and reshape the breasts. The procedure aims to raise and contour the area so that the breasts sit in a perkier position on the chest—producing a more youthful figure. The areolas are reduced to be proportionate with the perkier and firmer new breasts. 

Under the expert direction of Dr Liew, our team of specialist specialists in Sydney will work with you to achieve a look that will improve your comfort, confidence and quality of life.


Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure that raises and firms the breasts. This surgery aims to reverse the effects of ageing, pregnancy and other factors by contouring the area for a naturally revitalised appearance. The process begins with an incision, which is generally followed by removing excess skin and the tightening of surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour.

Breast lift procedures take approximately 2.5 hours and require about 1 to 2 weeks of post-procedure downtime. The results are generally long-lasting, depending on the quality of breast tissue and implant size (if augmentation is performed simultaneously as the lift). Dr Liew will consider all factors to build the most suitable, comprehensive plan for your needs and desires.



Depending on your body and what you aim to achieve, a breast lift can be performed with or without augmentation using implants. Dr Liew will discuss these conditions with you and help you discover the most suitable treatment for your body shape and desires.

What to expect from Breast Lift Surgery

For those primarily happy with their breast size but seeking to reshape the breast area, breast lift surgery is an excellent option. The procedure will remove excess skin and tighten the breasts to project a higher position on the chest wall. The areolas are repositioned to match the new contour. If asymmetry between breasts is a concern, those differences are addressed simultaneously.

A breast lift is a useful alternative for those who wish to enhance and support their breasts without implants. And for those who suffer mild sagging and want to correct slightly stretched or shapeless skin. This surgery aims to use the existing tissue to restore vitality to the breast—resulting in a natural and effortlessly beautiful look.

Breast Lifts with Augmentation:

Breast lift surgery is often combined with augmentation using implants to provide more fullness to the breast while simultaneously improving their position on the chest.

Breast augmentation is one of Australia’s most common surgical cosmetic procedures. This treatment uses silicone-filled implants to increase volume and improve the overall shape of the breast. The outcome will be an improved definition and a more aesthetically pleasing balance with the rest of the body. This is an excellent solution for those hoping to achieve a comprehensive restructuring of the breast, with a highly effective result.

Breast lift with augmentation is especially beneficial for anyone who has suffered a significant loss of shape, volume and positioning at the same time. This treatment enhances and rejuvenates the upper body, effectively providing a more holistic improvement to your figure. Implants are highly customisable to the individual: range, shape, size and material is tailored to your body type and desired outcomes.

Why consider a Breast Lift?

Hoping to reclaim fullness and balance in the breast? A breast lift can help. While the loss of volume in the breast can mean a loss of confidence, social withdrawal and overall reduced quality of life, it’s natural for the area to loosen and sag over time. Patients are often left to deal with the physical discomfort and cosmetic embarrassment that ensues. 

Anyone whose body goals are hindered by sagging skin or loose tissue in this area may consider a breast lift. Since the results of a breast lift are long-lasting, you can rest assured the investment you make now will carry you well into the future.

Breast augmentation and breast lift can be completed together or separately, depending on your needs. To find out more, see our page on Breast Augmentation.
