What is a breast lift?

A Breast lift is a procedure that typically involves the remoulding of the breast tissue and removal of excess skin in order to reshape the breast and give it a firm curvy appearance. Although it can be used in youth to improve or match shape, mostly it’s used to correct the effects of pregnancy and ageing.

The breast is also lifted by inserting implants, particularly those of a specific conical shape. This, of course, restores lost volume.

Fat grafting or lipofilling can fill out certain areas in preference to others. This is used a lot for the empty upper breast and cleavage.

Everyone is different, and your Cadogan Clinic surgeon will advise you which technique or combination of techniques will be most suitable for you. Sometimes he will combine all 3 techniques-mastopexy, fat grafting and implants.

Let’s look at what particular problems are addressed by the lift:

  • Primarily breast lift surgery helps to restore the firmness of the female breast tissue which has been overstretched, most often through factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and childbirth, breastfeeding or ageing.
  • Nipples that are too low or pointing downwards are properly positioned.
  • The darker coloured skin circling the nipple (the areola) is often unpleasantly stretched and will be reduced by the mastopexy.
  • Sad droopy breasts can be a thing of the past.
  • Asymmetry and odd shaped breasts are reformed.

At the end of the day, a breast lift procedure will boost your confidence and make you look like a younger version of yourself. Book in for a consultation at the Cadogan Clinic today to meet with a surgeon and see which procedures will best suit your desired outcome.
