Breast uplift surgery objective is to improve the fullness of your breasts improving your confidence in the process. This could also be your preferred option if you have concerns about implants, or implants are not required to achieve your desired size from surgery. Breast uplift surgery can also be augmented with implants in the upper breast to restore plumpness to the tissue if necessary. Another alternative is fat transfer to your uplifted breasts, which can achieve a natural look.
‘Mastopexy‘ is the medical term for breast uplift surgery, which lifts and improves the outline of the breast. This procedure is often chosen by the more mature woman, or a woman with slightly larger breasts that may have begun to ‘sag’ or ‘droop’ with the passage of time. You may already have a perfectly full cup size but find that gravity has taken its toll and you have lost both volume and tone in your breast tissue. Sometimes this procedure is chosen by younger women, who feel that the experience of pregnancy and breastfeeding has adversely affected the fullness and volume of their breasts. Women following weight loss may also feel that their breast have emptied and drooped, which makes them a candidate for breast uplift surgery with implants and/or fat transfer.
