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 way to regain your bodily confidence, giving you fuller-looking breasts and correcting boobs positioning on your body.

There are a number of combination procedures available that include Breast Uplift. It is very common for an uplift procedure to be carried out in conjunction with Breast Augmentation, resulting in fuller, correctly positioned breasts. At The Private Clinic, we also offer both Surgical Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty/Mammaplasty) and Breast Uplift (Mastopexy).

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.

A Mastopexy procedure can give your body back its youth and your breasts their firmness.

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.

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 involves keyhole shaped scars 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.

The cost of a bilateral mastopexy procedure starts at £7,340. We don’t follow a one-price-fits-all policy and prices are quoted on a case by case basis. We can also combine mastopexy with breast implants. You will be given an accurate quote for your requirements following your consultation.

We offer FREE consultations with our highly experienced Patient Advisors who are able to offer you all the information your require prior to meeting a surgeon. Consultations for Breast Augmentation with one of our specialist Consultant Plastic Surgeons is £50. Please note that consultations at our Harley Street clinic are with the Surgeons.

Helen, London

Absolutely delighted with the results. The surgery was nice and easy. I always received good advice and guidance from the doctor and nurses. I was looked after so well during my recovery period. I love my new shape and couldn’t be happier. Only regret that I didn’t do it earlier. Thanks a lot! *
