Breast Uplift (Mastopexy)

Pregnancies, weight gain, weight loss can cause the breasts to sag and soften. Similar changes can also be noted in age periods between 20 and mid 40ies. Whilst the size remains the same (unless you choose otherwise), the breasts gain a much more firmer and uplifted position.

The procedure
Under general anaesthesia with 1 night stay. Your anaesthetist will monitor your progress until you regain consciousness. After your procedure you will be taken into your room where you will start recovering.

Mastopexy refers to the correction of the breast position and firmness without reduction or increase in size.

The surgeon improves the firmness and shape of the sagging breasts by removing and rearranging the soft tissue from the lower part of the breast. Post operatives scars are similar to the ones noted under breast reduction, but smaller.

The patient may also choose with the surgeon’s advice to combine a breast implant with the uplifting to increase its volume and firmness.

The day of the procedure
On arrival at the hospital you will be admitted by the receptionist and routing medical checks such as your temperature and blood pressure are carried out.

You will then change into the theatre gown and remove any cosmetics, jewellery, glasses or contact lenses before meeting the surgeon.

Most frequently asked questions

Is breast uplift for me?
Breast lifting is suitable for women whose breast have lost firmness and are sagging as a result of weight gain/loss and breast feeding. Exercise usually does not improve the shape, however, breast lifting can offer a significant improvement.

When will I see the results?
Soon after surgery the breasts will be swollen. The end result is not apparent immediately which may cause a slight feeling of depression. However, this is quite normal and as you begin to recover the results will become evident. The majority of women opting for a breast uplifting have revealed that the psychological benefits have exceeded their expectations. Because your breast can gain a more attractive shape, you will find that your self-esteem and confidence will increase as a direct result.

When can I start my normal activities again?
After 3 weeks you can gradually increase your arm movements. Within 4-6 weeks the arms strength and movements will go back to normal and you can start with the normal activities and exercise such as golf, swimming etc.

Can I breast-feed after my breast uplifting?

Are there any associated risks?
There are inherent risks with breast uplift as there are with any surgery. The plastic surgeons are, however, highly qualified and complications are rare and usually only minor.
