Many women struggle with the size and shape of their breasts, wanting them to look firmer and more youthful. It is common for breasts to lose their elasticity after pregnancy or breastfeeding and breast lift surgery can help restore the tissue. Results may vary from patient to patient, so our consultants are on hand to discuss the entire procedure with you. It is a worthwhile procedure with remarkable results.
A breast lift, otherwise referred to as a Mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to help reshape and support the desired breast contour. A breast lift helps restore your breasts so that they become firmer without drastically changing the cup size.
Breast lift surgery is ideal for women who want to restore the shape of their breasts after ageing, pregnancy or weight loss.
Breast uplift surgery in the UK can take between two and three hours, depending on your requirements. To lift your breast, your 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, combined with breast augmentation if required. Like any other procedure, it may take several weeks for your breasts to settle into their new shape.
Following the breast lift procedure, you will need to remain in hospital for one or two nights. Your surgeon will recommend that you take a week off work and to avoid any strenuous activity for at least three weeks to aid the healing process. Your surgeon will also recommend you wear a firm dressing or support bra for a few weeks. This will encourage full healing to take place and will stop the weight of your breasts from pulling on your healing wounds.
Breast lifts are ideal for combating the effects of ageing by creating some of the following benefits:
Following breast lift surgery there will be some scarring. However, in the weeks and months after surgery the scarring will fade considerably. The type and amount will depend on the technique your surgeon uses. How you heal is dependent on a number of genetic factors, each person will scar differently but with modern management programmes, any scarring should fade nicely.
For many women, a breast lift alone isn’t enough. If your breasts are sagging with very little breast volume, or if they are naturally small, a breast lift alone may not create the desired result – in such cases, implants may be required. The combination of a breast lift and the insertion of breast implants can help lift and improve the volume of your breasts, giving you the desired look and fullness. Your surgeon will discuss the procedure in detail and the most suitable breast lift and implant treatment for you, including the size of the implant and the extent of the breast lift.
Guide prices are available here. Breast lift treatment varies per patient as every woman requires a different result.
