Breast uplift is also called mastopexy is a surgical procedure that aims to raise and reshape the breasts. Factors such as age, pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight loss can cause the breasts to lose their shape and firmness and become more droopy.
Mastopexy can be an effective treatment to make the breasts firmer and more shapely (more fullness in the upper part of the breast) without changing the breast size.
What happens before the operation?
At your first consultation for breast uplift, you will first have a full clinical assessment consisting of detailed medical history and clinical examination. I will ask questions about previous medical history, smoking history and family history. In addition, I will listen to your views and assess your expectations.
You will have a detailed clinical examination of both breasts and the chest wall to ensure that your breasts have no abnormality such as lumps or asymmetry prior to the surgery. You may be required to have a mammogram performed to assess the breast tissue prior to surgery. Measurements of both breasts will be taken to help plan the best surgical approach that suits you. Following the examination, I will discuss with you your requirements and goals. The suitable surgical technique will be discussed in detail along with risks, potential complications and what to expect after surgery.
It is essential to understand that some expectations may not be safely achievable by surgery, an honest and professional opinion will be provided in such circumstances.
