Breast Lift Surgery

Breast uplift surgery, also called mastopexy or simply a ‘boob lift’, aims to reshape the breast to create a more uplifted, youthful appearance. Whilst a breast lift won’t result in larger breasts, they may feel firmer and look more voluminous.

"I had a breast augmentation & uplift, everyone was so nice and helpful! I felt very welcome"*

Karen, 29th April 2017

*Results and benefits vary from patient to patient

You may be considering a breast lift if you have drooping or sagging breasts, a lack of firmness or nipples facing downwards. This surgery can also be combined with a breast enlargement or reduction to achieve the multiple benefits of a change in size and shape in one procedure.

More details on breast uplift

If you choose Transform for your procedure, you can be confident knowing that you’ll receive a completely personalised treatment and be supported each step of the way. Here are some more details about what you can expect, from your first consultation with us right through to the aftercare.

Breast Uplift step by step

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering ‘boob job’ surgery, the likely costs and finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss what you ideally want your breasts to look like, whether you are a suitable candidate for the surgery and the benefits and risks – with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. They’ll look at your medical history and it’s wise to tell them about any pregnancy plans you have in the future or weight loss goals you have in mind. They’ll discuss with you the outcome that you can anticipate as well as any potential complications involved in the procedure. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. During the two-hour procedure, your surgeon will make several incisions in your breasts to remove and tighten the skin. The number of incisions will depend on your requirements; they’re usually made around the areola and run vertically down the breast and occasionally along the crease of the breast. To get the results you’re looking for, you may have chosen to combine the breast uplift with a breast reduction or enlargement. Your nipples will then be re-positioned and the areola area around the nipple may be reduced in size to suit your new breast shape.

Following the procedure, you’ll need to stay in one of our Transform Hospitals for one or two nights, where you’ll receive the highest quality aftercare. Your breasts are likely to be swollen and feel tender to start with and it is normal to feel discomfort during the first 24 to 48 hours. There may also be some bruising at this stage. We’ll provide pain relief to help with any discomfort you may experience, but you should be up and around within 48 hours. During the first two weeks you should notice reduced swelling, bruising, pain and discomfort. During this time you will also have your stiches removed. Before you leave the hospital, we’ll talk to you about looking after yourself at home and make a follow-up appointment with your surgeon to remove your stitches. We’ll also give you the number for our 24/7 patient helpline so you can speak to a member of our clinical team, day or night.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you. You’ll need to give your body plenty of time to heal and we’ll give you detailed guidance on the best way to do this. The recovery period will differ from person to person, but we recommend that around two weeks off work may be necessary. You’ll need to wear a surgical bra for the first few days and this will be replaced with a sports bra, which you should wear at all times during the recovery period. You should avoid any exercise or strenuous activity for four to six weeks. ‘Boob job’ recovery rates vary from person to person but it is important not to try and rush back into your day-to-day routine before you’re ready. The recovery process is gradual and it may take a few months for your breasts to settle into their new shape and for the scars to start fading. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.

As with any breast procedure that involves incisions, there is a risk of loss of sensitivity when you undergo breast lift surgery, but this can vary from patient to patient. Breast uplift surgery involves the remodelling of the breast tissue and therefore you could experience a change in sensitivity to the nipple area as a result.

A breast uplift should leave minimal scarring, and these scars should fade over time. After the surgery, you will find the scars are red, but they should fade to a light pink over the course of 12 months. Efforts will always be made by your surgeon to keep scarring to a minimum.

Breast uplift surgery is designed to give you long-lasting results. However, over time, the force of gravity and the natural ageing process can cause your breasts to lose their fullness again. As with any surgical procedure, it is important to have realistic expectations, and you can discuss this with your surgeon before the breast uplift surgery.

Yes, a breast uplift is often combined with a breast enlargement or breast reduction, depending on your desired results. For a breast enlargement with an uplift, an implant is placed inside the breast tissue to create the appearance of fuller breasts. In the case of a reduction, breast tissue is removed before the skin is removed and tightened to complete the breast uplift.

Breast uplift procedures are most common in women who suffer a loss of elasticity and volume after childbirth, but if you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts, you can consider breast uplift surgery at any age over 18. Your surgeon will make the final decision with regard to eligibility for surgery.

As with most breast surgeries, there is a risk that breastfeeding could be affected due to gland or nerve damage during the procedure. Such risks and concerns will be discussed in depth by your surgeon at your initial consultation, and they will always strive to keep any damage to a minimum.
