A Breast Lift is performed under General Anaesthetic in hospital. The hospital stay is one – two night stay. Small cases may be performed as day-stay.
We recommend two weeks off work, wearing a post operative garment for 6 weeks.
Try before you buy with our $100 Vectra simulation. For very large breasts or where the areola is sitting too low on the breast, the simulation is less accurate. However, the appointment is an opportunity to talk to Jessica our Practice Manager about the surgical process, costs and review of previous patient case studies.
For both our Specialist Surgeons
The fees below are the total out of pocket costs These include the surgeon’s fee, hospital stay, anaesthetist’s fee, garment, LED light therapy for scar minimisation and follow up visits.
Dr Moncrieff's fees:

For many of our lift patients however, there is no Medicare item number meaning there are no health fund rebates. In those cases, the total cost of a breast lift with Dr Moncrieff is from $16,500.

A breast lift, or mastopexy, can help restore a firmer, shapelier breast, which will improve body contours and give the breasts a perky, youthful appearance. It is also used to treat patients who suffer medical issues with sagging breasts such as rashes or skin breakdown under the breast.
Breast surgery has come a long way over time. Our surgeons specialise in modern anchor incision breast lift with internal bra, which is the use of internal sutures to provide strength to the new breast shape, rather than just relying on external stitches.
This technique allows for skin reduction, reshaping of the breast, nipple/areola reduction and a breast lift all in the one operation. This is achieved with only a short vertical scar up the breast, incision around the areola and another under the breast fold.
The nipple is not 'removed' in the vast majority of cases, as the risk of graft failure is too high. Instead it remains attached to the blood supply and moved upwards.
For more information on breast reduction, please see our narrated 3D Animation above.
In some cases, an implant alone will be able to achieve the lifted look our patients want without the full incisions required for a surgical lift. More information about this option is in Dr Moncrieff’s blog here.
And for other women, combining a lift with an implant will give them the result they want. More about this is here.
