Is this right for me?

If you like the way your breasts are when you are wearing a bra or a bikini but disappointed with the look of them when you are not you may benefit from an uplift. The uplift doesn’t alter the quantity of the breast but reshapes and repositions it for a more youthful look.

Through a careful and supportive consultation the specialist will determine what is achievable in terms of size and shape and your general medical health. You will also have a full explanation of the advantages and the potential problems that can be associated with breast uplift.

It is a day case procedure and if you are a healthy adult, the surgery is a low risk procedure.

What does this involve?

Breast Uplift surgery removes skin from the underneath and the sides of the breast, and shapes the breast to give a natural and more youthful appearance. If volume is additionally required, then an implant can be inserted at the same time (augmentation mastopexy). We will assess you at consultation and advise the best treatment option for you.

Scars are sited around the nipple pad. In some cases where only a small lift is required, no further scars are required. If an implant is required, then an additional scar will be placed at the breast crease (inframammary fold/IMF).  Where a more extensive lift is needed, a further scar is sited from the nipple pad vertically down to the breast crease and then side to side in the breast crease. These heal well and are generally very subtle once the healing process is complete.
