Breast uplift TREATMENT OVERVIEW
WHAT IS BREasT UPLIFT SURGERY?
The breast uplift procedure at our London hospital primarily aims to lift and reshape your breasts to create a more youthful, perky appearance. Surgery creates higher and firmer breasts and reinstates an improved nipple position. The Mastopexy is a very common cosmetic procedure and many women who have lost their desired breast shape are suitable. It involves removing extra loose skin from the breasts and restoring the shape to create a natural appearance. Breast tissue is also remodelled, raising up the breasts.
Due to the natural ageing process, gravity, breast feeding and weight loss, our breasts begin to sag over time. The skin loses elasticity which can cause the breasts to lose their natural shape and firmness too. The breast uplift can treat a range of concerns and women who have naturally small breasts may also want to consider a breast enlargement for enhanced results. During the procedure our surgeons will correct breasts that appear out of proportion, breasts that have nipples/areolas that point downwards and restore symmetry. Being unhappy with the size, shape and proportion of breasts is common, and this may lead you to cover up or avoid activities you previously had the confidence to participate in.
We specialise in breast uplift surgeries, and unlike certain cosmetic procedures, the Mastopexy is relatively straightforward. If you have naturally large breasts, you may want to consider a breast reduction alongside the breast uplift. Not everyone is suitable for surgery and those who are considering pregnancy or breast feeding should ideally wait. Breast feeding after surgery can possibly undo the results.
There are many advantages to a Mastopexy. They include:
- Creating fuller, higher breasts
- Reducing sagging
- Restoring body confidence after pregnancy or weight loss
- Reversing the natural ageing process
- Perkier breasts
- Improved nipple projection
- Making breasts appear more symmetrical
- Reducing under-breast irritation
Our breast surgeons use their aesthetic skills to carefully reposition the breasts following removal of tissue and skin to ensure they are symmetrical and nipples placed in the correct place. Our surgeons also pay close attention to the incisions made, to reduce the chance of visible scarring.
If you are considering a Mastopexy, it is important to speak to one of our specialist breast surgeons for us to establish if you are suitable for treatment, or require an alternative procedure. All patients will first attend a consultation with our surgeon. We will take a full medical history and you will have chance to ask all of the questions and express any concerns. During your consultation, we will take time to get to know your concerns and procedure goals. It is important to note, a Mastopexy alone does not add volume to the breasts. Many patients also undergo complimentary procedures.

What will happen during BREAST UPLIFT SURGERY?
A breast uplift procedure in London is relatively straightforward and carried out by some of the UKs best breast surgeons. Surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic and normally takes around 1.5 – 3 hours to complete at our London Private Hospital.
There are a few different methods of surgery. Most breast uplifts involve an incision being made around the areola and under the breast itself. Incisions are made in creases so to avoid noticeable scars. After removing excess skin and tissue, our surgeon will reshape your breasts and move the nipples to a more desirable, higher position. During your consultation, our surgeon will inform you of the most suitable technique to use for your Mastopexy.
After the procedure is complete, you will recover in our private facility, usually overnight until you are discharged. For recovery information, please read our FAQs.
Here are the top questions that patients ask us before undergoing a breast uplift surgery and their answers. If you would like to learn more about Mastopexy, request a consultation.
Scars are inevitable with any surgery that involves making an incision. Our surgeons use their aesthetic skills to hide incisions within boob creases so scars are less visible. Normally scars will fade overtime and there are non-surgical scar management options to reduce any scars left behind.
The skin, fat, and tissue removed during a breast uplift procedure are permanently removed and cannot grow back. The breast uplift procedure is a long term solution; however some patients may need further surgeries as a result of further sagging, weight loss or ageing.
There is a small possibility of a loss of sensation in the nipples. If this occurs, normally it is restored over time.
Most breast lift surgery patients are able to breastfeed without any issues. There is a small chance your milk production is affected by the procedure.
Your breast uplift surgery will take around 1.5 – 3 hours. You should allow time to recover post-surgery, to enjoy the best results.
Suitable candidates for a Mastopexy are those who are experiencing considerable sagging as a result of ageing, breast feeding or weight loss. Individuals with loss of confidence may want to consider surgery to target concerns. Prior to surgery, our surgeon will assess your suitability.
During your initial consultation, we will provide you with all of the information you need to achieve the best results post-surgery. Every patient responds to surgery differently, so it’s difficult to say exactly how long it will take you to recover from this procedure. Patients will need to wait for several months for swelling to go down and the full effect to be seen.
Pain after surgery can be managed with painkillers. You will notice swelling after your surgery and will be sore. Of course, everybody has a different pain threshold. Please discuss your concerns with our surgeon.
After your breast uplift procedure, you will recover in our hospital for the time suggested by your surgeon. Once we are satisfied, you will be discharged from hospital and must follow the aftercare advice provided by our team.
