Breast Uplift

The Problem

Sagging, or pendulous breasts, which result from the relaxation of ligaments, can affect a woman’s self-esteem and result in a negative body image. Overtime, the breast’s support system can lose its fight against the forces of gravity and drooping breasts can make you look and feel older than you’d like.

Breast uplift, Breast lift or Mastopexy surgery can offer you a great way to regain your body confidence, giving you fuller-looking breasts and correcting their positioning on your body for a more uplifted appearance.

At The Private Clinic breast uplift surgery is performed by some of the UK’s top consultant plastic surgeons who have decades of experience. Our specialised breast surgeons are available for consultations at our clinics in: London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Buckinghamshire, Northampton and Bristol. We also offer free patient advisor consultations at our consulting rooms in Milton Keynes.

A Mastopexy procedure can give your body back its youth and create firmer breasts. If your breasts are empty or saggy, or you are unhappy with the shape of your breasts or the position of your nipple, a Breast Uplift or Mastopexy may be the most suitable option for you. Sometimes the problem isn’t size, but the loss of volume and tone. If your breasts appear ‘empty’ or simply make you feel old and unattractive, a breast lift, also known as a Mastopexy, can restore and rejuvenate this part of your body. Stretched and thin skin, overly large areolas and downward-pointing nipples may affect how you feel about the look of your breasts, something a Mastopexy can effectively treat.

It is very common for an uplift procedure to be carried out in conjunction with Breast Augmentation, resulting in fuller, correctly positioned breasts. We also offer Breast Auto-Augmentation which is a great option for patients who are looking to remove their breast implants but are worried about losing too much volume. Your breast surgeon will use your existing breast tissue to help reshape the bust to give you fullness in the upper chest along with an uplifted appearance too.

Why Choose The Private Clinic?

We offer the highest value of expertise in both procedures, and we will always recommend the most suitable procedure for you.

The Private Clinic is experienced in both minimally invasive and surgical breast reduction and uplift procedures, so you will have the chance to discuss alternative procedures with a surgeon who is familiar with all techniques. We take the hard work out of choosing your surgeon because we only work with doctors who lead their field and have performed hundreds of successful procedures.

The Problem

Sagging, or pendulous breasts, which result from the relaxation of ligaments, can affect a woman’s self-esteem and result in a negative body image. Overtime, the breast’s support system can lose its fight against the forces of gravity and drooping breasts can make you look and feel older than you’d like.

The Breast Uplift Procedure

A Mastopexy, or Breast Uplift, is a cosmetic procedure, where excess skin is removed so that the remaining skin can be tightened and the nipple moved to a higher position, resulting in a firmer appearance. The skin can be removed from underneath the breast or around the areola (the dark tissue around your nipple).

The surgery most commonly involves a lollipop shaped scar and aims to:

  • Reposition the nipple to the midline of the upper arm
  • Pull up the breast tissue
  • Reduce the amount of excess skin

If the degree of droop is only very minor then your surgeon may suggest that a ‘mini uplift’ is only needed. This involves an incision around the lower area of the areola only.

Many women seek breast uplift surgery after their families are complete. If you are planning to have more children, you may want to consider postponing the procedure. Although the procedure has no risks for future pregnancy or breastfeeding, your breasts may stretch again and reduce the effectiveness of the surgery.

It is important to discuss your expectations with your surgeon before the surgery so that you understand how much the breast reduction or lift will achieve. Our doctors will also explain the most appropriate surgical methods for your breast reduction and explain where you will see the scars.

A breast reduction and lift, occasionally combined with a Breast Augmentation procedure, will lift and reshape your breasts, making them look more youthful and firm.

The Breast Uplift Results

The results will make your breasts fuller and more uplifted. The position of your nipples and areolas will be improved.

Scars are usually quite red for the first six weeks after surgery. They then change to a purple colour over the next three months before fading. You can expect some swelling and bruising for a few weeks, with the full result evident within a few months of the procedure. We have a lot of satisfied patients and feel confident in offering the procedure, knowing we can provide great results that last and are safe.


Following the procedure, you will need to stay in the hospital overnight. Once you have returned home, depending on your age and general fitness, you will need to rest for two to six weeks. We recommend that you take at least 2 weeks off work and avoid strenuous exercise for at least 6 weeks.

Swelling and localised discomfort will subside within a few weeks, but you will need to wear a support bra, with no under-wire, for at least 6 weeks.

    I had my surgery 6 weeks ago. From start to finish I received a faultless, professional and friendly service. Mr Adrian Richards performed my procedure. I cannot thank him enough for the results. Absolutely perfect and exactly what I wanted. I would highly recommend him!
    Nurse Aggie Oakley was a shining star. She was there from my initial consultation, to the operating theatre, to my final appointment today, where I was given the all clear to return to normal activities. She is a credit to the clinic! Thank you Aggie, Mr Richards and all the Private Clinic Staff at Northampton
