What is Breast Lift Surgery?

If you want your breasts to be firmer, higher or less droopy, then a breast lift (Mastopexy) should certainly be considered to achieve your desired look.
Breast lift (Mastopexy) surgery restores the breasts and nipples being higher and more central to your chest. For women who are happy with the size of their breasts, but not happy with how they look as a result of sagging nipples or low hanging breast tissues, then a breast lift is likely to be the perfect procedure for you.

Breast Augmentation Surgery in Melbourne

During the surgery, isolation to the nipple and areola complex occurs on its underlying nerve and blood supply. Next, the complex is lifted vertically on the breast so it can be relocated to the perfect centre of the breast mound. If the case only requires a small degree of vertical lifting, then it is likely only a small incision will be made around the upper part of the nipple. However, if more lifting is required, an additional incision is usually made below the breast to provide more support to the nipple/areola complex. This extra incision below the breast also addresses the lack of tissue in the lower pole of the breast.

There have been extensive techniques to conduct these procedures, the most common and popular being the Hall-Findlay and Lejour mastopexies. In today’s day and age, it is uncommon to use the outdated methods such as the Wise pattern or anchor shaped incision, and at Professor Mark Ashton’s plastic surgery, the most modern, successful and suitable to you method is used to achieve the desired results.

Most patients who have undertaken this surgery not experienced extensive pain. Usually, breast lift patients do not requiring large quantities of pain relief, and have ranked it only a 2 or 3 out of 10 on the pain scale. Post-surgery care includes not using restrictive bandaging and wearing of bras/other support until the wounds have completely healed. Total healing of the wounds tends to occur somewhere between ten days to two weeks.

Typically, the recovery time following a breast lift is quicker than other procedures such as a breast reduction, and we find most patients are able to return to light duties in approximately 1-2 weeks. For more detailed information on the breast lift procedure, refer to Ashton Plastic Surgery’s website. Do not hesitate to contact us to discuss whether you are a good candidate for breast lift surgery.

Jaw Pain Treatment Options

Jaw pain is a very common condition experienced by at least 10% of the Australian population.  It is more common in women than men. Jaw pain is sometimes called TMJ, which stands for temporo mandibular joint (your jaw joint). People mistakenly use the term TMJ to describe their condition i.e. “I have TMJ”. What they should be saying is “I have a TMJ problem” or “I have TMD (temporo-mandibular –disorder)”Jaw Pain Melbourne

Jaw pain is often associated with other symptoms such as clicking, stiffness of the jaws, locking, headache, ear pain or blocking and occasionally ringing of the ears (tinnitus).  The pain is often worse in the morning and is a sign that you may be clenching (bruxing) at night. Stress is a major contributing factor to clenching but is not the only reason for this unconscious habit. Jaw pain commonly occurs when excessive force is applied to the jaws such as wisdom teeth extraction, or when the mouth is kept open for extended periods such as during lengthily dental procedures.

Jaw pain Loganholme can be related to or contributed to by an issue of the head and neck alignment leading to a mechanical stress on the jaw joint and its associated muscles. Whiplash Springwood type injury is a common prelude to jaw pain and may only manifest in jaw pain years later. Neck structures can also refer pain to the face and jaw region producing jaw pain type symptoms which do not originate in the jaw joints or structures. This can contribute to a confusing picture when trying to determine the source of pain and plan appropriate treatment.

Physiotherapists  with special interest and training in TMJ / jaw conditions are able to asses and treat both areas of the neck and TMJ’s to determine where your pain is coming from and what structures require treatment. Often treatment focussing on the head and neck areas as well as the TMJs is indicated for resolution. Although your dentist may be able to assist your jaw pain and clenching by fitting you with a custom made mouth splint, they are not generally able to asses or treat any neck component of your jaw / TMJ pain. If you suspect a neck component due to stiffness at the back of the head and neck, headaches at the back of the head, or if you are not getting expected results with a mouth splint, then be sure to contact a local clinic. Our physiotherapists have special training and experience treating a range of jaw pain / TMJ conditions.
