Breast Uplift

Breast-UpliftThis procedure is carried out to up-lift the breasts which have become droopy or sagging due to ageing, weight loss, gravity, pregnancy and breast feeding. A mastopexy is effective in re-shaping and raising the breast to give a firmer and more youthful appearance by removing skin from the areas of excess which are usually around the areola and underneath the breast to tighten the tissue and raise the nipple. In addition to the removal of the skin the breast tissue is repositioned to enhance the fullness of the breasts. A breast implant could be used in some patients to obtain the desired effect. However on occasions a small reduction may be necessary in achieving a more cosmetically pleasing result.

WHAT TO EXPECT

This surgery to lift the breast is normally carried out under general anaesthetic and usually requires a 1 night stay in hospital. There may be some discomfort for several days post operatively and you are encouraged to wear a dressing and a firm bra. Any stitches are removed at 10-12 days after the operation and no strenuous physical exercise is recommended for a month. Approximately 2-3 weeks is required from work.
