Mastopexy / Breast Lift

Breasts may sag over time as a result of weight changes, pregnancy, breast feeding and menopause. This sagging of the breast is known as Cooper’s droop or breast ptosis. It is measured by the amount of skin contact beneath the breasts and the position of the nipple and areola relative to the breast.



Breast Reduction/ Reduction Mammaplasty

Large and heavy breasts are caused by breast hypertrophy (increased growth) and develop in women who have a family history of women with large breasts, or who are overweight or in response to several hormonal, genetic and developmental factors.



Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation is a surgical procedure which uses breast implants to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breasts. It is one of the most commonly performed aesthetic surgery operations around the world and makes immediate improvements in a woman’s figure, confidence and self esteem.



Gynaecomastia/ Male Breast Development

The degree of development varies from a small lump behind the nipple to fully developed female breast shape. There may be a significant size difference between the sides, or development of gynaecomastia on one side only (Breast Asymmetry). The tissue within the breast is usually firm glandular tissue and fatty tissue and there is a variable amount of extra skin.
