Breast Uplift (mastopexy)

Breast uplift surgery, or mastopexy, is one of a number of cosmetic surgery procedures that aim to raise and firm the breasts to restore the former, fuller appearance of the patient's bustline.

The treatment will not increase the size of your breasts, but it's commonly performed at the same time as a breast enlargement when a bigger bust is desired, to give you lift, fullness and firmness.

Breast uplifts are most commonly performed to reverse the sagging effects that often follow pregnancies, weight loss and ageing. Drooping or sagging occurs when the skin of the breasts is stretched, resulting in a less youthful appearance.

What breast uplift (mastopexy) involves

Breast uplift surgery is performed under a general anaesthetic by our highly experienced medical team and will involve an overnight stay in one of our purpose-built cosmetic surgery hospitals. You may also need to take a week or two off work.

The surgeon will carefully remove a small section of excess skin from each breast to lift the bustline, giving a more youthful appearance. If the sagging of your breasts is only very minor, the surgeon may suggest a "mini" uplift, also known as a nipple lift.

We pride ourselves on our after-care. We offer a comprehensive and extensive post-operative care regime, which includes detailed post-operative instructions and follow-up appointments with your surgeon at your local Transform clinic to ensure a speedy recovery, all at no additional cost.
