Lift

A breast lift or mastopexy is an operation that removes excess skin and corrects sagging and is one of our team’s most frequently performed surgeries, with an extremely high satisfaction rate. Breast shape and symmetry are enhanced, the nipple-areolar complex is re-positioned with its size, proportionally reduced, creating a firmer, more youthful appearance. In almost all cases a ‘vertical scar’ technique (‘lollipop’ scar) is used.  This is one of our most frequently performed surgical procedures with an extremely high satisfaction rate.

    FAQ

    • How long do the results last?

      A vertical scar breast lift maintains it’s shape for many years. Follow up of our previous vertical scar breast lifts has demonstrated this technique to be extremely reliable in maintaining shape and symmetry. 

      Major weight fluctuations may result in some loss of breast projection and shape. Similarly after many years the breast can be expected to lose some projection and shape.

    • How bad is the scarring?

      Breast surgery is a ‘trade-off’; enhanced breast shape with a scar. The vertical scar technique (lollipop scar configuration) is advantageous in that it limits the extent of breast scars whilst optimising breast shape.

      Scars are prominent in the first few months, particularly redness, and the final appearance can be expected after two years. An individuals genetic predisposition also has a significant bearing on the final scar quality. 

      Our scar management protocol is initiated immediately after surgery. It will continue until we have achieved the least conspicuous scar possible.

    • Will my nipple sensation be affected?

      Sensory loss to the nipple is extremely uncommon. The vertical scar technique using a supero-medial pedicle typically preserves the major nerve supply to the nipple.

    • Can I have a rhinoplasty if I smoke or VAPE?

      No, rhinoplasty is contra-indicated in smokers.

      Smoking or the use of any nicotine products carries a high risk of serious complications. Abstinence for a period of 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after surgery is mandatory to minimise risks.
