Breast uplift surgery is a common procedure carried out on women after breastfeeding and to correct natural droop caused by ageing. It aims to lift the breasts, providing a more youthful, attractive appearance. It’s also referred to as mastopexy and can involve a number of different techniques. It can be performed alone, or in conjunction with breast augmentation.
As well as lifting the breasts, Mr Paul Tulley can also reshape and reposition them to achieve a fuller appearance.
What does a breast uplift entail?
While techniques do vary depending upon what you want to achieve, typically small incisions are made around and below the nipple. These may be noticeable but should fade over time. Excess skin will be removed before the nipple is placed higher and the tissue is reshaped.
It generally takes two to three hours. If you’re also having breast augmentation, the implants will be inserted either at the back of the chest muscle or underneath the tissue of the breast. The incisions will be closed with stitches.
