Breast uplift
Medical term: Mastopexy

Breast uplift surgery, as the name suggests, lifts and firms up the sagging breast. The bust size changes after pregnancy or following weight loss or ageing. The breast skin which has been stretched by the increased breast size and/or weight is not able to shrink back to match the reduced breast size. This results in the breast skin becoming loose and the shape deforming to varying degrees, often like an empty bag.

The breast uplift surgery involves the removal of sections of slack/loose skin from under the breasts and may also include repositioning the nipples to give firmer and higher (appropriately positioned) breasts. In the process, this procedure may also remove a few stretch marks and make some of those that remain less noticeable.

  • It corrects the droop by repositioning your breast to a more youthful position.
  • Increase the fullness and projection of your breasts.
  • Reduce the nipple areola size.
  • Improves your figure proportions.
  • Enhances your self-image and self-confidence.
  • You are concerned that your breasts are sagging, or disproportionately lower placed on your chest.
  • You are dissatisfied with your breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging.
  • Your breasts are asymmetric in size or shape.
Procedure :
Based on patient examination and discussion, one of three breast uplift techniques are offered to our patients

(1) Inverted T mastopexy ( traditional breast uplift- most commonly) involves three incisions:

  • The first is around the areola (the dark area around the nipple).
  • The second is a vertical incision from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast crease.
  • Finally, a horizontal incision is made under the breast, following the natural curve of the breast crease.

Depending on individual circumstances, sometimes the second and/or third incision can be avoided using a modified technique. This has the benefit of producing less scarring. This is the basis of the other two uplift techniques.

(2) Periareolar mastopexy involves only one incision-around the areola. We prefer this in cases with early/mild sagging.

(3) Vertical Scar Mastopexy involves two incisions. One incision around the areola and the second vertical scar from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast crease. This gives very nice results in younger patients with moderate sagging.

  • Anesthesia : This procedure is done under general anesthesia
  • Duration of Procedure : It takes about 2- 3 hours for the procedure.

Inpatient/Outpatient procedure:
It is an inpatient procedure which usually requires a one night stay in hospital, longer if it is combined with other body shaping procedures.
  • Rest- 10-15 days. We usually use absorbable (self dissolving) stitches and hence there is no need for removal.
  • You can resume normal routine in 2- 3 weeks.
  • Strenuous activity and exercise can be resumed in 4-6weeks.
  • Time for scar tissue to heal upto 18 months.

Duration of Results:
  • The results are long-lasting.
  • Pregnancy, weight loss and menopause may influence the appearance of uplifted breasts over the course of your lifetime just as they would affect an untreated breast.
Procedures commonly done concomitantly with breast uplift surgery are :
  • Augmentation Mastopexy (combines breast uplift with breast enhancement)
  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tuck
