Breast Uplift (Boob lift) TREATMENT OVERVIEW

Breast Uplift or Mastopexy or Boob Lift is cosmetic surgery to lift and reshape the breasts to give a fuller, firmer, and more youthful appearance.

Uplift surgery doesn’t alter the volume of the breasts. Instead, it reforms and repositions them, creating a fresh, full, and lifted contour.

Bella Vou provides a bespoke breast surgery service. The expert cosmetic surgeons will carefully assess your body, discuss your worries, and tailor a personal programme of care. If you are worried about the size, as well as the position and texture of your breasts, implants can also be inserted to fill, enhance, and lift the breasts.

You will be given a soft, supportive bra on the day of surgery. This will be put on for you at the end of the operation. You should wear this continuously for six weeks and avoid strenuous or repetitive activity during this time. You can go home on the day of surgery, and you are advised to rest quietly at home for a couple of weeks.

There is some post-operative pain, bruising, and swelling, but it is rare for this to be severe. The soft-tissue swelling in the breast takes around three months to resolve fully. At this stage, the breast should soften, start to feel normal, and you can appreciate the results of your uplift surgery. In the longer term, you will find that the nipple and the skin on the underside of the breast are a bit numb.

At Bella Vou we provide various payment options meaning you can spread the cost and enjoy a confident outlook at a price you can afford.

Breast Lift Healing & Scar Progression

Scars are a natural part of the healing process. The goal is to make your scar as small and discreet as possible. It is important to remember that cosmetic surgery scars and healing progression can vary depending on the type of procedure and the individual's healing process.

It is important to follow your surgeon's post-operative instructions carefully and attend all follow-up appointments to ensure the best possible healing and cosmetic results.



Step 1. Free, no-obligation consultation

Bella Vou offers every client a free consultation with an accredited cosmetic surgeon. There is no obligation to proceed to treatment. The consultation is an opportunity to discuss any concerns you have with your breasts, and receive an impartial professional opinion about whether Breast Uplift can help you get the breasts you want.

The expert aesthetic surgeon will evaluate your breast volume and position, your skin elasticity, the position of the areola, and your body proportions. In careful consultation with you, they will plan the best treatment to achieve your goals. This could include Breast Uplift Surgery, Breast Augmentation, and Areola Reduction to ensure the breast looks pert, natural, and correctly placed on the chest. Mr Amir Nakhdjevani says:

‘We make sure that we advise people correctly about whether surgery is right for them. We treat everyone as if they were our family. At Bella Vou, we never pressurise people or try to sell procedures. It's always about giving an honest opinion and honest advice.’

Step 2. Meet your surgeon

You will be offered a further appointment with your consultant before proceeding to Breast Uplift. This will give you a chance to find out more about the procedure, understand any risks and complications, and to ask any questions you may have.

The specialist surgeon will take your medical history, examine your breasts to check for lumps, and ensure you’re healthy and fit for surgery.

Step 3. Preparation for Breast Uplift

The Bella Vou team will give you individual pre-operative advice to reduce your chance of bleeding and infection. As soon as your operation time is set, they'll also let you know when to stop eating and drinking in preparation for your general anaesthetic.

It’s vital to let your surgeon know if you're on any medications. You may be asked to stop taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory tablets, which can increase the risk of bruising. It's also important to stop smoking cigarettes and e-cigarettes before and after surgery because they can disrupt the healing process.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll be welcomed to Bella Vou, given a gown to wear and escorted to the state-of-the-art operating theatre.

Step 4. What happens during Breast Uplift?

Breast Uplift is performed under general anaesthetic. It is often done as a day case. However, you may need to stay in the hospital overnight so that your recovery can be monitored.

The incision will depend on the extent of the surgery. Often the surgeon will just make a circular incision around the edge of the areola so that the scar is discreet and not noticeable. For bigger lifts, a 'lollipop' incision is needed. This is around the areola, extending vertically down to the breast crease.

The surgeon carefully removes loose, excess skin from the underneath and sides of the breast. They then tighten the remaining skin, reshape and pull up the breast, and reposition the nipple and areola to make the breasts firmer, fuller, and more pert.

Finally, the incision is closed with absorbable sutures that don't need to be removed, and a dressing is applied.

Step 5. Recovery from Breast Uplift

You will usually be able to go home on the day of the procedure, with no drains or drips. The staff at Bella Vou will offer safe and effective painkillers, carefully monitor your recovery, and provide support every step of the way.

You will be given a supportive sports bra to protect the breasts and maintain your comfort as you heal. After one week, the nurse and wound care specialist will check your breasts and the scars. After two weeks, you will be able to increase activity gradually. However, excess arm movement and strenuous or repetitive activity should be avoided for up to six weeks, when you should be able to return to your usual routine.

At around six weeks, your surgeon will check your progress and ensure that you are healthy and happy with your results. The scars tend to heal well and fade to be unobtrusive. The Bella Vou staff are always available if you have problems or questions at any time.
