A Breast Uplift or Mastopexy is a procedure to uplift the breasts and give a more perky appearance. It can be combined with either a Breast Augmentation or Breast Reduction. Your family should be complete before this operation as having further pregnancies could change the shape and position of the breasts and undo the good work


The Results:

You should support the breasts in a sports bra while they heal. There will be a degree of swelling which takes approximately 6 weeks to settle. Any scars will start out pink and gradually fade to a silvery line over approximately one year.

Reviews From Patients

``A surgeon that I could trust``
“From the day I met Mr Lambe I knew that he was a surgeon that I could trust. He is very open, honest and trustworthy. I got the impression that its more than just a job and that made me feel secure and at ease. He is very down to earth and he understood what I wanted to achieve by having the operation. Mr Lambe explains the operations pros and cons and doesn’t try to talk you into an operation that you are not comfortable with or ready for. Mr Lambe did an amazing job and I would l highly recommend him to anyone. His secretary Jayne is also very supportive and was always there if I had any concerns. Can’t thank them both enough.”
``Mr Lambe was very knowledgable and very professional``
“I wanted to share my experience with Mr Lambe with you all. I am 6-month post-op from my breast augmentation surgery and I am honestly over the moon. From my very first conversation with Jayne to make the appointment right through to today, it’s been a fantastic experience. I am totally happy with what Mr Lambe did for me, he made me feel like I was in control, he answered all of my silly questions!!!! I did a lot of research before finally plucking up the courage to go ahead, Mr Lambe was very knowledgeable and very professional. I would recommend anyone who is considering surgery to go and see him, the 3D goggles are great and they really give you the feel for your end result. The customer service is amazing overall 10/10.”

``Too Old for a Boob Job.. Never!``
“Having hankered after a cleavage for years, I finally bit the bullet and went for it. Should have done it years ago. It wasn’t scary at all. I can honestly say I didn’t have any pain after the surgery. Discomfort yes, but not pain. I was pretty evangelical about the post op instructions I was given though so perhaps that helped. Now, six weeks later, I feel great. The boobs look fantastic. So if you’re considering it, go and talk to a professional and then go for it!”


FAQ About Breast Uplift Surgery

    Before Breast Uplift After
A breast reduction reduces the size and weight of ladies breasts using a carefully planned pattern of scarring. The nipple is often sitting in a low position in ladies who have larger breasts and this is also lifted at the same time to create a pleasing natural appearance.
The procedure is done under GA (General Anaesthesia) so you will be asleep and takes approximately 2hrs.
It is not possible to promise a cup size but Mr Lambe will do his very best to produce the size and shape of breasts you desire. There are limitations to what can be achieved and this will be discussed fully with you consultation.
Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) is a very rare cancer that MAY be associated with breast implant capsules. Approximately only 3 in 100 million women in the US are diagnosed per year. The relationship between breast implants and ALCL is unclear and is currently under investigation.
For an uplift you can usually be a day case. For a reduction, depending on the size of the reduction, you may need to stay overnight in the hospital and you should arrange for someone to pick you up the next day.
Generally you will need to have some help with shopping and childcare for the first week at a minimum as it is advisable not to lift anything heavy while your wounds are healing.
You should wear a supportive sports bra with no underwiring after your surgery as the wiring can rub in wounds and cause them to break down. Front fastening bras are often easier to use after surgery so you are not stretching behind you.

If you have any cause for concern after your surgery such as dressings being soiled or increasing pain and redness, then you should contact the hospital on the number provided on your discharge notes. Mr Lambe will also review you in the clinic 2 weeks after surgery and remove your dressings and check the wounds are healing nicely.

Unfortunately, breast feeding is highly unlikely to be possible after this surgery.
You will need a private consultation to discuss your personal requirements as everyone is different.
