What is a Breast Uplift?
Breast Uplift, or Mastopexy is a common procedure performed to help reshape breasts, which have drooped due to ageing, weight loss, pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast Uplift surgery can restore breasts back to their youthful, firm and perky form by removing excess skin caused by loss of elasticity.
How is Breast Uplift Performed?
There are different techniques used in in breast uplift surgery. The right surgical technique varies according to each patient and the desired outcome. The procedure involves making an incision around the areola down to the breast to remove excess skin and to reposition the nipples by moving them higher. The areolas may sometimes need to be reduced in size for a more aesthetically pleasing result.
The most common type of breast uplift is an inverted T scar, especially for reducing large breasts or those with excess breast skin. Most patients are concerned about post-operative scarring and although it will not completely disappear, the scar will gradually fade over time.
Breast Uplift with Implants
If breasts have lost volume, implants can be used to enhance them by combining a breast uplift with breast enlargement surgery. While a breast uplift helps bring breasts to a higher position, breast implants can restore their fullness. Patients tend to be very satisfied with their results as breasts will be higher, perkier and larger than they were before the surgery.
Many women choose to combine breast uplift surgery with implants to boost body confidence and to feel comfortable with the size and shape of their breasts. During a breast uplift your cup size will be reduced after the excess skin and breast tissue is removed. If there is a lack of natural breast tissue and you’d like fuller breasts, then breast implants could be the best solution for you.
Our surgeons use both MENTOR® and MOTIVA®, the leading breast implants approved by the FDA

He will go through your medical history and test results with you to ensure your suitability for the procedure.

Does Breast Uplift Reduce Cup Size?
Your bra cup size will be smaller after a Breast Uplift as the excess skin and breast tissue on your breasts will be removed during this procedure. However, a Breast Uplift can be done in combination with Breast Augmentation for fuller and perkier breasts.
Can I breastfeed after Breast Uplift surgery?
Breast Uplift surgery does not usually affect your ability to breastfeed as this procedure doesn’t involve the ducts or the areas of your breasts involved in milk production.
When can I expect to return to work?
It depends on the type of job that you do. Normally, you can return to work within 14 days if your job is sedentary. For more active jobs we recommend taking up to 3 weeks off work because you must avoid any strenuous activities involving arm movement in the first 6 weeks following Breast Uplift surgery.

When can I expect to see my results?
Most patients will start seeing their results after three to six months as that’s how long it can take for your breasts to heal.
Don’t forget that specific results cannot be guaranteed as every individual has different bodies therefore everyone’s results will vary.
Should I bring a friend with me?
