An augmentation mastopexy is a combination of 2 operations, a breast lift and a breast augmentation to achieve an aesthetically pleasing breast in patients that also require more volume.
This procedure therefor not only reshapes and rejuvenates the sagging breast, but it also increases cup size. This procedure is more complex and requires some further planning, though it can yield some amazing results.
As a plastic and cosmetic surgeon Dr Rajapakse is very experienced in this type of operation.

You maybe a good candidate for breast lift surgery if you have:
However, breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast i.e. create upper pole fullness. If you want your breasts to look fuller, consider breast lift and breast augmentation surgery.
Depending on the size and location of the skin lesion Dr Rajapakse performs surgery either under local anaesthesia with or without sedation or under general anaesthesia. Some procedures may be suitable for local anaesthetic and can be performed in the rooms.
If general anaesthesia or sedation is required Dr Rajapakse will engage the services of a qualified anaesthetist who is a fellow of the Royal Australian and NZ College of Anaesthetists (FRANZCA).
Your anaesthetist will ask you about all the medications that you are taking or have taken and any allergies that you may have.
Unfortunately scars are an inevitable part of any surgery and depending on how each person heals, there can be no guarantee for a perfect outcome.
Dr Rajapakse is highly skilled to minimize scarring and to keep your scars as inconspicuous as possible by placing the incision in natural crease lines.
Scars do fade and if scarring is a concern for you after surgery, Dr Rajapakse will provide you with specially tailored treatment plan to expedite the healing of your scars.
All surgeries are performed either as a day case or overnight stay at an reputable internationally accredited facility.
Patients usually stay in hospital for 1 or 2 nights, until the drains are removed.
Discoloration and swelling are to be expected for the first few weeks after surgery.
Post operative pain is usually limited and is well controlled with pain relief tablets. Your wounds will be covered with waterproof dressings so that you may shower as soon as you feel comfortable. You will be asked to wear a soft surgical bra for support and comfort during the first two weeks to allow healing of your breast into their new shape. Gentle stretching can prove beneficial and exercise such as walking can commence within seven days. Most people can return to work within 10 to 14 days unless their occupation involves strenuous movement, when 3 to 4 weeks is recommended. All heavy lifting should be avoided for the first 6 weeks.
You have the right to be informed about the costs associated with you surgery.
When choosing a surgeon for your cosmetic surgery, remember that factors such as surgeon’s training, qualifications, experience and your comfort them are just as important.
Costs associated with the procedure may include:
After your consultation an informed financial consent will be sent as well as an information pack to read before the second pre-surgery appointment. This second optional appointment is complimentary and your preoperative photos and measurements for your compression bra’s will be taken at this time.
