Breast Uplift Surgery

Mastopexy (commonly referred to as a Breast Uplift) is a procedure that lifts and re-positions the breast to achieve a much fuller and perkier appearance.

Introduction to Breast Uplift Surgery

Breast Uplift surgery can be performed as an individual procedure, but is often combined with other procedures such as Breast Augmentation or Breast Reduction(Mammoplasty).

What issues can a Breast Uplift fix?

  • Sagging or pendulous breasts
  • Loss of volume or tone
  • Overly large or ‘downward pointing’ areolas
  • Loss of firmness and fullness

Consultation

When you are considering any cosmetic surgical procedure it is important that you choose a well-qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. Manchester surgeon, Mr Andrea Marando, has performed thousands of breast surgery procedures including Breast Uplifts. Mr Marando offers Breast Uplift procedures with or without implants, depending on your desires and expectations.

Your initial consultation with Mr Marando will be at The Star Clinic, Manchester, and will last about one hour. You will be given a full examination to determine whether a Breast Uplift is the right procedure for you. During the consultation you will have the chance to raise any concerns or ask any questions that you may have, and it is important that you are open and honest in answering any
questions that Mr Marando has for you.

If you decide to go ahead and proceed with the procedure, you will always be invited to come back for a second consultation with Mr Marando, closer to the date of surgery.

Who is the best candidate for a Breast Uplift procedure?

Many women are unhappy with the sagging of their breasts after pregnancy or breastfeeding. Do you have breasts that are ‘empty-looking’ and saggy? Are you unhappy with the shape and volume of your breasts? Do you want to change the position of your nipples?

If the answer is ‘yes’ to any of these questions then you could be a good candidate for a Breast Lift (Mastopexy).

The Procedure

During your Breast Uplift procedure, Mr Marando will remove excess skin in order to tighten any remaining skin and change the position of the nipple; this will achieve a much firmer and fuller appearance of the breasts. The skin can either be removed from around the areola or from underneath the patient’s breast.

If your breasts only droop slightly, Mr Marando might suggest that a ‘mini breast uplift’ is best suited to you. To find out more information on a ‘mini uplift’ please contact Mr Marando’s team at The Star Clinic.

Your Mastopexy, or ‘Breast Uplift’ can be performed either with or without implants, depending on the look that you wish to achieve. This is something that will have been discussed and decided during your initial consultation with Mr Marando.

Breast Lift procedures are performed under general anaesthetic and will require an overnight hospital stay after your surgery.

What are the risks involved with a Breast Uplift?

As with any cosmetic surgery procedure, there are some possible risks involved, although these risks are greatly decreased when you are in the hands of a competent, experienced and capable plastic surgeon such as Mr Marando. Breast Lift surgery is usually quite a straight forward procedure, with minimal complications, but the most common of these are asymmetry of the breasts and scarring, depending on which techniques are used.

Recovery

Following your Mastopexy, you will be advised to rest for between a fortnight and six weeks.

Back to work – Mr Marando advises patients to take at least two weeks off work following a Breast Uplift procedure.

Physical exercise – Mr Marando advises that after Mastopexy you do not exercise your lower body until after two weeks, and wait four to eight weeks before exercising the upper body.

Contact with breasts – Patients should wait three to four weeks post Breast Uplift surgery before having contact with their breasts.

Swelling and discomfort – Swelling and discomfort should subside within a few weeks after your Mastopexy, but it is advised to wear a sports bra without under-wiring for at least six weeks after the procedure.

Fading of scars – The fading of scars after a Breast Uplift is the longest part of the recovery process and can take anything from several months to a year; occasionally more. There are procedures and treatments that can be done post procedure to help with scarring.

Introduction

We make every effort to ensure that the information contained on this site is accurate however, all information is subject to alteration from time to time. The information on this website therefore serves as a guide only to help you and prepare you for your consultation (in Manchester, Liverpool, Gisburn or London) with Mr. Marando, your Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon.

Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, and the force of gravity take their toll on a woman’s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag.

Consultation

The first consultation with Mr. Marando usually takes one hour. The patient, once decided to proceed with the procedure, is invited to come back for a second consultation with Mr. Marando, closer to the date of surgery.

During the consultation, the patient is assessed, photos taken, analysed and discussed, expectations evaluated, benefit and risks of the Operation of Mastopexy / Uplift explained in details.

Operation

Breast Lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts–at least, for a time. (No surgery can permanently delay the effects of gravity.)

Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small or have lost volume–for example, after pregnancy–breast implants (silicone cohesive gel) inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both their firmness and their size.
The best candidates for mastopexy are healthy, emotionally-stable women who are realistic about what the surgery can accomplish. The best results are usually achieved in women with small, sagging breasts. Breasts of any size can be lifted, but the results may not last as long in heavy breasts. Mr. Marando will discuss the best procedure for your individual case after examining you.

Breast uplift is an excellent procedure to reshape the breast, retighten the tissue and giving a more youthful appearance. When combined with an augmentation with an appropriate breast implant, the patient will also achieve an increase of fullness. Reasons for considering surgery are: loss of elasticity, firmness and volume of breast due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, ageing.

Length of the Operation: 1 to 3 hours.

Anesthesia: Usually general anaesthetic.

Hospital stay: Day case or 1 overnight stay.

Possible Side Effects: Temporary soreness and swelling. Change in nipple sensation, Breast sensitive to stimulation for a few weeks, scars.

Risks: Every procedure carries some uncertainty and risks. Most common problems are bleeding or infection, increase or decrease/loss in sensitivity of nipples or breast skin, occasionally permanent; capsular contracture (hardening of the breast due to the formation of scar tissue around the implant). Scars can sometimes be prominent or excessive

In the hands of a competent and experienced surgeon, the risks can be minimized.

Recovery

Back to work: 10/12 days to 2 weeks.

Physical Exercise: Lower body 2 weeks, upper body 4 to 8 weeks.

Contact with breasts: 3 to 4 weeks.

Fading of scars: Several months to a year, occasionally more.
