breast uplift surgery
Why do people have a breast uplift?

Changes to the breast as you age lead to sagging of the tissue and the nipples move lower and point down. Saggy or droopy breasts may accentuate the visual effects of ageing and can make it more difficult to get clothes that fit well. A breast uplift or mastopexy can improve the look and feel of the breasts,

What types of breast uplift are available?

There are 4 types of breast uplift procedure that can help to improve the look and feel of your breasts. After a full cosmetic consultation, you will be able to choose which of these is most likely to give the look you desire.

Benelli Lift

This is also called a periareolar mastopexy and involves removing a doughnut shapes ring of skin from around the nipple-areolar complex. The skin is tightened and the nipple moved upwards slightly. The scar heals to be almost invisible around the dark part of the areola. This works best when there is only a small amount of sagging of the bosom.

Vertical-scar (Lejour) Uplift

With this procedure, there is a scar around the nipple which extends down to the lower crease of the breast, like a lollipop. This can give more uplift than the Benelli procedure without the need for a scar in the lower fold of the breast.

Anchor-scar (Wise-pattern) Mastopexy

Similarly, the scar travels around the nipple-areola, vertically downwards and then across the lower breast fold. The shape produced is an anchor although the horizontal scar is well-hidden in the lower part of the breast. This procedure give the greatest change in the shape of the breast and usually provides a consistent result.

Implant Mastopexy

Occasionally, enough of a breast lift can be provided by placing a breast implant alone. Sometimes, the best result is with a combination of breast implant and an uplift procedure. This is complex surgery and needs to be planned carefully in advance with your surgeon. When done well, the results can be a dramatic improvement.


What is the normal procedure?

You will meet your consultant in the clinic. You will discuss your goals, expectations and hopes. The surgeon will examine you, checking for any abnormality, and together you will decide the best approach to your surgery.

After a ‘cooling-off’ period of a minimum of 2 weeks (during which time you can cancel with no obligation to proceed), you will come in for surgery. On the day of surgery, you will be asked not to eat or drink anything beforehand. You will meet the anaesthetist (doctor who puts you to sleep and keeps you healthy during the surgery) before going for your surgery. When you wake up you will be in a bed with dressings over your wounds. There will be dissolving stitches, wound glue and paper stitches sealing your scar. Someone else will need to drive you home. If needed, take simple painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, but avoid aspirin.

Keep dressings in place for 10 days after the operation. Avoid getting the area wet for 48 hrs and then after that you should shower and pat the area dry until the dressing are removed.

You should wear a supportive (post-operative or sports-type) bra which isn’t too tight. You should avoid vigorous exercise for 4 weeks. Do not undertake contact sports or sleep on your front for 8 weeks.

As well as your appointment to have the dressings removed at 10-14 days you will receive a follow-up appointment at 6 months to check you are happy with everything. You will be able to speak to your surgeon or arrange another appointment at any time prior to your 6 month review, without any charge.

What are the potential risks?
Breast uplift is normally safe surgery with a low risk of complications. However, as with any operation it is important that you are fully informed about the potential risks.
There are some rare but important early complications:
1. Bleeding – if you have bleeding after your surgery there is a chance you may need an emergency operation to stop it. Rarely, you may require a blood transfusion or extra time in hospital. Bleeding affects 2-3 out of every 100 patients.
2. Infection – extensive precautions are taken both before and during the procedure to reduce the risk of infection. You will receive antibiotics at the time of surgery. Infection happens in fewer than 2 out of every 100 patients undergoing mastopexy.
3. Wound healing problems – for various reasons, including vaping, using e-cigarettes, smoking or diabetes, the small blood vessels of the skin may be insufficient. This increases the risk of wound breakdown. This may require additional surgery to fix or revise the scars. You should not smoke for at least 6 weeks prior to and 2 weeks after your operation.
4. Asymmetry – although we are extremely careful to make sure that the breasts appear symmetrical following the procedure, there can be differences between the two sides when you have healed. In the worst cases, this may require revision surgery.
5. Unsatisfactory result – occasionally patients do not feel satisfied with the result of their surgery, and improvements in appearance are not as good as they might have hoped. It is important that you are clear with your surgeon about what you want, and realistic about what can be achieved. The outcome of your surgery can be expected to change with time, particularly as a result of ageing or weight changes.
6. Nipple necrosis – breast uplift normally involves a change in the position of the nipples. This means that great care must be taken to preserve the blood supply to the nipple. In rare cases, the blood supply may not be as good as hoped and this might lead to death (necrosis) of the nipple. This is a risk that all surgeons should discuss with you.
