Breast uplift, breast lift or as it’s medically termed Mastopexy is very common in woman whose breasts have dropped or lost shape due to childbirth, weight loss or part of the ageing process.
Breast uplift surgery gives the breasts a more youthful and pert or perky appearance. This procedure can often be performed at the same time as a breast enlargement (implant or fat transfer required) or a reduction to help achieve the desired shape and size.
The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic and can take 2 – 4 hours with a one night stay in hospital.
Your surgeon will make an incision around the areola (dark area around the nipple) ( circular areola technique) or around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease, this can sometimes be referred to as the anchor due to its shape. Your surgeon will then remove the excess skin and reshape breast tissue they will also re-position your nipple lifting it higher.
After this procedure you will need 1 to 2 weeks off work with 6 weeks for physical activities and exercise. You will also be required to wear a support bra and attend very import follow up appointments for your post op care with your surgeon.
