Breast lift / mastopexy

You may be considering a breast lift if your breasts have lost shape and are droopy. 


A breast uplift or mastopexy lifts breasts that have become saggy or droopy (breast ptosis). For some women, their breasts may have developed this way, for others the change occurs with ageing or after pregnancy and weight loss. Breast ptosis is characterised by a drop in the position of the nipple and the breast tissue. This leads to a lack of fullness in the upper parts of the breast and a loss of the youthful appearance of the breast. Breast ptosis can affect younger women as well.

There are many types of breast uplift procedure that can be tailored to your needs. A mild droop can sometimes be improved by increasing the volume of the breast with a breast implant alone (see breast augmentation). More severe drooping can be treated by removal of loose skin and tightening. This is a similar procedure to a breast reduction but very little breast tissue is removed.

Combining a breast lift with implants

If you are looking to lift your breasts and add volume, then a breast lift can be combined with breast implants (augmentation mastopexy). Augmentation mastopexy is a more complex procedure and great care is required in assessing you for such surgery.
