If your breasts have sagged or lost their shape due to pregnancy, weight loss or the aging process, a breast lift can help you return to your ideal breast goals. Breast lift surgery—also called a mastopexy—may work best in conjunction with breast implants to increase the overall contour of the breasts, as well as definition and volume. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss your unique breast transformation goals, as well as the steps of the procedure.
A breast uplift, otherwise known as a boob lift or mastopexy, lifts and reshapes your breasts to create a raised and pert appearance. Most women choose breast lift surgery because their breasts have become pendulous or lost shape due to pregnancy, breast feeding, weight loss, genetics, gravity or ageing. Here at Ramsay Health Care all of our breast lift procedures are performed by experienced and trustworthy surgeons in local hospitals that are regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission for the very best clinical outcomes.
The breasts are often an area of concern for women as they start growing older. Normal aging can wreak havoc on the breasts, causing them to droop, sag, and lose firmness and lift. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can also take a toll on the breasts, exacerbating the signs of aging, and can make the breasts lose volume and lift.
Mastopexy is the technical name for surgery that lifts and shapes the breasts and sometimes reduces the size of the areola. The goal of this procedure is to temporarily offset the natural effects of age and gravity by lifting the breasts, giving them a more youthful appearance. As with other forms of cosmetic plastic surgery, you need to have a clear and realistic idea of why you want the surgery and what you hope to look like after it. And you need to discuss these honestly with your surgeon.
Your breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. Pregnancy, nursing, weight gain and loss, aging and gravity can cause breasts to soften and sag. A mastopexy raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast.
