Breast Uplift Review
I reallly don’t know where to start to express how i feel about my recent surgery for a breast lift has made me feel.
From my initial appointment of being booked in for my consultantation and the caring voice on the other end of the line and email from Jayne, to meeting Mr Lambe, my treatment was amazing. I asked Mr Lambe’s advice on my surgery and he felt an uplift was all i needed and not to have breast implants as I wanted a more natural look.
The result, now 22 weeks post operation is unbelievable. I have always had an issue with body image and understand now that what I see is not what is real, but for the first time in my 50 years life I feel tiny in frame. I no longer home in on my chest, which i admit now is amazing, as it’s in proportion with my frame.
I have nipples in a more youthful position and can actually, and i must say tastefully. wear a skimpy top with no bra. I was not able to do this as a teenager. I have reduced bra size from a FF to a DD and no longer have droopy breast but a firm natural look.
I had a few concerns around the healing process but was advised to call into see the breast nurse (Sam), again amazing caring lady, anytime, nothing was ever too much trouble. The money I have invested in myself is worth every penny and I cannot recommend Mr Lambe and his team enough.
I feel amazing, it’s given me a boost in confidence and now a new wardrobe of clothes. …..thankyou x

Before & After Results
What is a Breast Uplift?
A Breast Uplift or Mastopexy is a breast surgery procedure to uplift your breasts and give you a more perky appearance.
Patients usually find that over time or after pregnancy and breastfeeding their breasts can sometimes droop.
It can be combined with either a Breast Augmentation to give fullness to the top of the breast or with a Breast Reduction to reduce the overall volume of the breast.
For Breast Uplift cost please see our FAQs below.
Results are usually good and patients feel rejuvenated and more youthful after surgery and often go out and buy a whole new wardrobe of clothes and underwear.
Breast Uplift Case Study
Beth* was a 20 year old University student who had always been self-conscious about her drooping breasts. She came to see me with her Mum over a year ago now to discuss what could be done to improve them,
Beth told me that she had always been unhappy with her breasts as she felt ever since they had developed they had been “droopy” and she thought that they had an overall poor shape. She felt that she did not necessarily want to increase the size of her breasts (with a breast enlargement) but was, however, much more focused on achieving “a better and more youthful shape” as well as lifting the nipple up a bit as it was presently pointing downwards.
She was not worried about having scars on her breasts if she knew that this would give her the shape she desired.
Questions at Consultation 1
Her main question was what, if anything could be done to improve her shape? She had heard about mastopexy (the medical name for breast uplift surgery) and wanted to know if this alone would give her the shape she desired. or if she would perhaps also need to have breast implants. We talked about what was involved in the breast uplift operation and how this was done through an anchor pattern of scarring with most of the scar well disguised within the crease of the breast or around the areola. I explained how this would not require any breast implants but instead I would be able to sculpt and shape the breast using internal stitches. I showed both her and her Mum pictures of previous patients who had undergone both breast uplift and breast reduction under my care so that they could see the sort of scars and shape that results from this procedure. We also talked about the pros and cons of using breast implants. I explained that this confers extra risk and cost but that it is used mainly to give fullness to the upper part of the breast rather than to make her bigger overall. She was given written information sheets and Frequently Asked Questions sheets and went away to think over her options and consider the best time for her to have surgery so that it would fit around her University studies.
At the second Consultation, she asked more questions about the pros and cons of using breast implants and I showed her different patients who had undergone breast uplift surgery with and without breast implants. She was overall edging towards not having them and after a bit of thought, she opted to go for a breast uplift alone. I asked her to sign her consent form and we took her pre-op pictures. Her Mum asked about how long she would be in the hospital and I explained she would need an overnight stay and that the surgery would take approximately 2 hours and that there would be no need for any drains.
Day of surgery
On the day of her cosmetic surgery, I came to see her and I measured up and marked out where her new nipple would be positioned on her breasts after the surgery. I explained she would come back with some tapes to support and keep her new shape in place and she had brought some front fastening bras (and without underwiring) with her as advised to wear post-op
The operation went very well and I was able to get a very pleasing shape and symmetry which she was absolutely delighted with. She said
I feel much more confident and can often wear clothes without the need for my bra!
The scars have settled very well and I have now discharged her so that she can make the most of her new university life.
