What is a Breast Lift?

Overview Procedure Before/After FeesConsent FormRecovery Consultants Testimonials Frequently Asked Questions

Breast lift surgery at our boutique Birmingham clinic, also known as a breast uplift, mastopexy, or boob lift, is a surgical procedure which lifts and reshapes sagging or drooping breasts to create a more youthful, natural look and improved breast contour.

Breasts naturally droop with age, after pregnancy and breastfeeding, and after weight loss. This is because the skin and fibrous ligaments in the breast become stretched so the breast tissue is not supported. Mastopexy reshapes the breasts by removing extra skin, remodelling the breast tissue and moving the nipples up to the best position on the newly lifted breasts.

What are the benefits of a breast lift?

Our breast lift patients at our Birmingham clinic constantly express the amazing advantages of this surgery. View our breast lift testimonials here. A mastopexy can have a significant impact on your day-to-day life and improve your confidence.

  • This procedure can reshape the breasts for women who feel that their breasts have drooped or sagged. This typically happens because of natural changes due to ageing, or following pregnancy or breastfeeding.
  • A breast lift can restore a more youthful shape to the breast and improve their fullness.
  • This plastic surgery operation can improve the symmetry and shape of the breasts. In some cases this may be combined with a breast reduction to deal with major asymmetry.
  • Many patients report increased feelings of self-confidence following their surgical procedure, and feel more comfortable wearing more revealing clothes or bikinis.

Types of Breast Lifts

Breast uplift procedures can vary depending on the size of your breasts. It usually works by making an incision on each breast. Next, the skin is raised and stitched in its new position, and excess skin can be removed and repositioned to ensure that your newly positioned breasts look as natural as possible.

If there is not enough natural breast tissue, the procedure can be combined with breast augmentation surgery, which involves inserting breast implants to add fullness.

  • On the day of discharge the drains will be removed and the sports bra (compression garment) is worn over the dressings and to be worn day and night for the next 3 months.
  • All dressings to be kept dry until further instructed.
  • TED stockings to be for for 2 weeks.
  • Discharge with standard painkillers.
Dressings Clinic
  • Usually about a week after mastopexy surgery the strapping around the breasts is removed and a lighter dressing put onto the scar. There may be a second dressing check a week later if necessary.
  • No stretching arms for the first 6 weeks
  • After first week - normal daily activities like driving are allowed
  • After third week - Lower body exercises for example: treadmill, cycling.

General scar care for first 3 months
  • Micropore tape to the scars for at least three months until well healed.
  • The micropore tape must stay on for showers and baths and is simply patted dry. This should not be changed until it is very loose and almost falling off by itself. Frequent removal of the micropore tape can irritate the scar.
  • Moisturise scar after first 3 months.
  • Moisturise the surrounding breast skin usually from the second week onwards.
Special Instructions
  • Normal bra and bikini can be worn for holidays and the odd special occasion for the first 3 months.
