Breast Uplift

Breast lift surgery is a procedure to raise the breast by tightening the surrounding tissue to give the breast more shape and support. Many women feel uncomfortable with the size and shape of their breasts, which can affect body confidence and self-esteem. Breast surgery is one the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures to enhance, change implants, reduce or lift the breast.

Breast uplift procedure can vary depending on the size of you breast, but it usually works by making an incision on each breast, the skin is then lifted and stitched in its new position and excess skin removed. The nipples will then be removed and repositioned to ensure that your newly positioned breasts look as natural as possible. If there is a lack of natural breast tissue and you are looking for a fuller effect you can combine the procedure with breast augmentation, which involves inserting breast implants to add fullness to the breasts.

 

What can Breast Lift do?


Childbirth and breastfeeding, age and significant weight loss can all take their toll on women's bodies - in particular with breasts - for many women breast uplift surgery can offer a way to regain their body confidence.

Breast uplift surgery can be combined with breast augmentation surgery to give you fuller breasts and correcting their position on the body. If you have found that your breasts have lost their fullness and are not as supported as you would like them to be, breast uplift surgery could be the solution.

Benefits of having Breast Lift Surgery


  • Increased self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Ability to wear tops without a bra
  • A wider choice of clothes
  • Rejuvenation of the breasts

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing to have breast lift surgery

There are many reasons why people choose to have breast uplift (mastopexy) surgery:

  • The breasts are no longer firm and pert, making it difficult to wear clothes without the support of a bra
  • Following pregnancy and breast feeding, the breast becomes flatter and 'empty' looking
  • Substantial weight loss from dieting can leave the breast deflated and with a lot of loose skin
  • Ageing skin loses elasticity and can cause sagging to the breasts. If this happens prematurely it may reduce self-confidence both in and out of clothes

Who should have a breast lift

The final decision will be made between you and your Cosmetic Surgeon. The procedure is most suitable for those patients who feel self-conscious due to their breasts having excess skin and appear deflated from weight loss, ageing or pregnancy

The Harley Medical Group has been committed to providing excellence in Cosmetic Surgery in the UK since it was established. During this time, we have developed a full understanding of the many reasons why people have Cosmetic Surgery and how it can improve how they feel about themselves.

The procedure usually takes between one and two hours to complete, is carried out under general anaesthetic and may require an overnight stay in hospital so that your progress can be monitored.

Your cosmetic surgeon will begin by making small incisions in the natural crease underneath the breast, in the armpit or the underside of the nipple area. They will then insert the implant either behind or over the muscle and breast tissue to give a natural shape before closing the incisions with surgical sutures. Your surgeon will advise which position will deliver the best results for you. You can discuss the procedure in more detail with your cosmetic surgeon during your consultation.

The risks with Breast Enlargement are the same as with any surgical procedure that requires general anesthetic. Capsular contracture is the most common complication of Breast Enlargement surgery. The risks and details of the procedure will be fully explained during your consultation.

We use Mentor Memory Gel® implants which are recognised as the world’s leading implant brand in terms of safety and quality; they are produced by Johnson & Johnson who have specialised in making healthcare products for over 125 years. You will be aware of their famous baby products, but they also make medical devices such as hip and knee replacements and have been making breast implants for over 40 years. In fact they supply the highest number of breast implants in the world and are the No. 1 choice for breast reconstructive surgeryin the NHS.

These implants are one of the few makes approved by the F.D.A (The Food and Drug Administration in America) which means that these implants are of an exceptionally high standard and that the consistency of their manufacture is second to none. Mentor have the most rigorous, up to date testing with the lowest rates of both rupture and capsular contraction compared to alternatives and the warranty is the best available in the UK.

The only difference between the round and the CPG (teardrop or anatomical) breast implant is the shape. Both implants have the same unique, patented Memory Gel® (although anatomical implants are made of a firmer gel to help them keep their shape) and outer shell and both come in a variety of projections and sizes. Most importantly both implants are tested to the highest exacting standards.

A round breast implant, currently the most popular style in the UK, looks like half a sphere is no defined top or bottom. Round implants give a full look directly under the nipple area providing the classic augmented appearance.

Teardrop implants have less volume towards the top of the implant and are fuller at the bottom, more closely resembling the look of a natural breast. Teardrop implants do have a slightly longer recovery time, but can produce a more natural result in some patients, which is becoming increasingly popular.

The Contour Profile Gel (CPG) breast implant, also known as an anatomical implant, is the teardrop shaped implant that is designed to follow the curves of your body. The implant has less volume towards the top and are fuller at the bottom, result is a more natural looking fuller breast. This style of implant is the most requested across the world, particularly in Europe and America, and is growing in popularity in the UK where the trend for more discreet implants is growing.

The Keller Funnel™ is an FDA* approved medical device that allows the surgeon to position the breast implant with minimal contact to the implant itself. This means that the implant never meets your skin during surgery ensuring it remains perfectly sterile. The funnel also allows the surgeon to make a smaller incision, which means that recovery time after surgery should lessen as the procedure is less impactful on the body.

In most cases our surgeons will use the Keller Funnel™ in their breast procedures, and at no additional cost to our patients.
