Breast uplift or Mastopexy is very common in woman whose breasts have dropped or lost shape due to childbirth, weight loss or part of the ageing process.
An uplift procedure is extremely effective and gives the breasts a more youthful and pert appearance. This procedure can often be performed at the same time as a breast enlargement (implant required) or a reduction to help achieve the desired shape.
Prior to your procedure you will have an in-depth pre operation assessment with the MYA clinic nurse to ensure you are fit and healthy prior to your breast uplift procedure.
The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic and can take 2 hours with a one night stay in one of our highly equipped comfortable hospitals.
Your surgeon will make an incision around the areola (dark area around the nipple) 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 reposition your nipple lifting it higher.
To ensure you rest and recuperate we advise 7-10 days 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 at your local MYA clinic.
