This is an operation to lift and reshape sagging breasts, giving you a firmer, more youthful-looking bust line. Many women report a significant increase in confidence after undergoing the breast lift procedure. Breast lift surgery cannot make small breasts larger or reduce the size of large breasts. The procedure is designed to reshape the tissue you already have.Your surgeon will remove some of the loose skin in the lower part of your breasts. This will tighten the skin from on the lower portion of your breast. Your nipple will be moved into a higher position to create a firmer shape and more “pert” profile. The operation will take between 1 and 2 hours to complete. You will require a general anaesthetic and an overnight stay in hospital. There are several different types of breast uplift (mastopexy). The best one for you depends on the position of your nipple and how much excess skin you have. This is a guide to the different types of breast uplift (mastopexy).
