A breast uplift, commonly known as a breast lift or mastopexy, is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure for women of all ages in the UK.
A breast uplift is a cosmetic procedure that improves ptosis and the shape and size of the breasts, creating a more youthful, uplifted appearance.
Many patients experience drooping and a natural loss of shape in their breasts over time, this can be due to several factors such as weight loss, ageing, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. Breast uplift surgery can be a lifechanging procedure for women who are looking to achieve a fuller, uplifted breast shape.
What is Ptosis?
Ptosis is a term used to describe the sagging of the breasts, symptoms can range from mild to severe and may differ in each breast. Patients that are unhappy with the shape of their breasts and present with ptosis, may choose to have a breast uplift surgery.
Patients who consider breast uplift procedures are typically wanting to achieve a fuller, uplifted breast shape for the following reasons:
All women’s breasts are different, it is common for patients to present with slight asymmetry, therefore some patients may require a combination of breast uplift procedures.
During your consultation our MYA surgeons will examine your breasts, take measurements, and recommend the best treatment plan for you based on your physical requirements, body shape, existing breast tissue, degree of ptosis and your desired result.
Size – Breast implants are measured in cubic centimetres (or CC’s for short), not in cup sizes, for example: 350cc or 400cc.
Shape – There are two shapes of implants round or anatomical (also known as teardrop).
Placement – The placement of breast implants refers to whether the implant is placed under the muscle, over the muscle or partially between both, described as submuscular, subglandular and subfascial.
Profile/Projection – The profile of breast implants refers to how much it projects forward when you are standing and is described as low, moderate, high or ultra high profile.
Breast uplift procedures are performed under general anaesthetic and take between 2-2.5 hours in theatre. Depending on the surgeon’s recommendations and your personal preference, there’s an option to be a day case patient or stay overnight to recover in one of our MYA hospitals.
Patients should expect bruising and swelling to the breasts and surrounding areas and may experience tightness, discomfort and sensitivity following their procedure. Pain should subside after 7-14 days and pain relief will be prescribed to ease any discomfort.
To ensure full recovery from your breast uplift, patients are advised to take 7-114 days off work for office-based jobs.
