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.

The Results

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.

Patient 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”

  • You should not have this procedure if

    You are overweight, with a BMI of over 32, smoke or vape, are in bad health and are taking anti-coagulant medication or are diabetic.

  • Do I have to stay overnight in hospital?

    For an uplift you can usually be a day case and you should arrange for someone to take you home later that day.

  • How long will I need help after surgery?

    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 breasts are healing.

  • What bra should I bring to wear post op?

    You should wear a supportive sports bra with no underwiring after your surgery. Front fastening bras are often easier to use after surgery so you are not stretching behind you when you put it on and take it off.

  • What about breast feeding?

    Unfortunately, breast feeding is highly unlikely to be possible after this surgery.

  • How do I book?

    You will need a private consultation to discuss your personal requirements as everyone is different.

  • Follow Up Procedure

    I will review you in the clinic 10-14 days later and remove the dressings and inspect the wounds. If all is well then you will usually have a much lighter dressing applied and then a plan to review your progress in about 4 weeks and then 3 months time. It is important in the post operative period to avoid anything rubbing or pressing on the wounds and so I ask that you wear a soft and supportive sports bra with no under wiring until I am happy that all wounds have settled nicely.

  • Complications

    All operations have the potential for complications and a breast uplift is no exception. The most frequently seen issues are in the small area where a scar meets the chest wall which can sometimes be a little slower to heal. Poor scarring is a risk in any surgery and is not under the control of the Surgeon. A risk that is always discussed is the potential of loss of a nipple. This is because the nipple has to be moved and it needs to carry a healthy blood supply with it. If the blood supply does not feed the nipple then there can be problems with healing or loss of the nipple. This is something I have very rarely seen in my whole career and is more common if a breast uplift  is being repeated and the Surgeon does not have the information regarding the previous surgery available to them.

  • Results

    The vast majority of patients are delighted with the results of their breast uplift in Manchester surgery and wish they had done it sooner! It can be a truly life-changing procedure for some patients leading to a new lease of life with increased confidence and a whole new wardrobe!

  • What is the difference between a breast reduction and a breast uplift?

    A breast uplift in Manchester 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.

  • How long does the surgery take?

    The procedure is done under GA (General Anaesthesia) so you will be asleep and takes approximately 2hrs.

  • Can I pick a cup size if I am having a reduction?

    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.

  • What are the possible complications?

    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.

  • Do I have to stay overnight in hospital?

    For an uplift you can usually be a day case. For an uplift, 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.

  • How long will I need help after surgery?

    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.

  • What bra should I bring to wear post op?

    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.

  • What should I do if I am worried post op?

    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.

  • What about breast feeding?

    Unfortunately, breast feeding is highly unlikely to be possible after this surgery.
