Breast Uplift / Mastopexy

Breast Uplift, also known as Breast Lift or Mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to correct breast ptosis or sagging.

A woman’s breasts change in size, volume, and position on her chest throughout her life. Breast ptosis or sagging is a natural consequence of ageing due to loss of skin elasticity, but the rate at which the breasts droop and the severity of the ptosis depend on many factors such as smoking/lifestyle, number of pregnancies and significant weight gain and loss. Furthermore, in younger women with large breasts and poor skin elasticity, sagging may occur early in life due to the effects of gravity, primarily caused by the volume and weight of the breasts which are disproportionate to her body size.

The goals of Breast Uplift surgery are to create improved projection and a more youthful, uplifted appearance while minimising visible scarring. In addition to reshaping the breast, mastopexy can also reduce the size of the nipple-areola.

Breast uplift (Mastopexy) can be performed in any size breast, however very large breasts may be more suited to a Breast Reduction procedure. Subsequently Patients with relatively small breasts and minimal ptosis may be candidates for modified procedures requiring less extensive incisions.

Women with small breasts and upper pole flatness may benefit from simultaneous Breast Augmentation alongside Breast Uplift. The implant can enhance breast size and contour whilst increasing the longevity of the uplifting effects .
