Procedure Overview

A breast uplift, mastopexy or breast lift operation is very common for woman whose breasts have dropped or lost shape due to childbirth, weight loss or as part of the ageing process. The aim of breast uplift surgery (mastopexy) is to elevate ptosis (sagging) breasts by correcting the shape and size of the breasts.

During the procedure, excess tissue and skin is reduced and the nipple area is positioned higher on the breast. This procedure can be carried out to combat aesthetic, psychological or physical concerns. Mastopexy (breast uplift) takes approximately 2-2.5 hours under a general anaesthetic and requires an overnight stay in hospital. Often referred to as a boob lift or boob uplift, breast uplift surgery is extremely effective in order to give the breasts a more youthful and pert appearance.

A breast uplift can be combined with a breast enlargement (a breast lift and implant surgery) to give a lifted and larger shape – this is called an augmented mastopexy or breast lift and enlargement. Breast uplift surgery 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), vertically down to the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease. This type of incision can sometimes be referred to as the anchor due to its shape. Your surgeon will then remove the excess skin and reshape breast tissue,  re-positioning your nipple and lifting it higher.

To ensure full recovery from your breast uplift, we advise waiting 7-10 days before returning to work and 6 weeks before returning to physical activities and exercise. You will also be required to wear a support bra and attend important follow up appointments for your post op care at your local MYA clinic.
