Breast lift surgery is very safe, and performed frequently by plastic surgeons. However it is a major procedure – and therefore, choosing the right surgeon is of upmost importance.
Mastopexy surgery should be performed by a qualified plastic surgeon who has undergone specialist training and examination, and is registered as a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. I am a qualified plastic surgeon with a special interest in reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery.
