Gold Coast plastic surgeon Dr Luke Stradwick has more than 10 years of experience of plastic surgery on breasts. He performs his plastic surgery procedures in a standardised way in an accredited hospital on the Gold Coast.
In a breast lift surgery procedure, the aim is to retain all the existing breast tissue and reshape it to produce a more youthful and perky breast, typically without using breast implants.
Women seeking this plastic surgery procedure are usually unhappy with the “saggy” appearance of their breasts, often accompanied by a low nipple position. Gold Coast plastic surgeon Dr Stradwick keeps the scar as short as possible by using the vertical technique that leaves a lollypop scar whenever possible – avoiding the long scar beneath the breast that is common to the older techniques of breast lift and reduction. Long lasting dissolving sutures are placed carefully in the skin to achieve the best possible scar.
The breast lift procedure is always performed by Gold Coast plastic surgeon Dr Stradwick himself without the use of assistants because he believes strongly that every stitch counts towards the final scar result.

A breast lift (mastopexy) surgery procedure is designed to improve the shape and position of the breasts without reducing their size. It is used for breasts that have sagged but are not large.
Women suitable for a breast lift surgery alone (ie without needing breast implants) are typically happy with the size of their breasts in a bra, but very unhappy with their breast shape when out of a bra.

A breast lift surgery also involves raising the nipple to a more youthful position while also removing the excess skin.
The breast appears larger even though a breast implant is not used because the breast tissue that was spread over a greater area has been refashioned into a more conical shape typically with a narrower base.
