Many women are happy with the size and shape of their breasts but would prefer them to look firmer and more pert-looking. A Mastopexy, or breast uplift surgery, can help with this.

Ideal for restoring firmness to the breasts, a Mastopexy is also great for combating the effects of ageing. Some of the benefits include:
During the procedure, the surgeon will create a cut around the areola to remove excess tissue and tighten the surrounding skin. The breast will then be reshaped and the nipple repositioned to a natural level. Breast uplift surgery can be combined with breast augmentation if required.
The Mastopexy will be performed under general anaesthetic and usually takes two to three hours.
As with any surgical procedure, there is always a risk of complications. Specific complications include:
Following the procedure, you will need to remain in the hospital for one or two nights. It is recommended that you take a week off work and avoid any strenuous activity for at least three weeks.
