Breast Uplift Case Studies

What is a breast lift?

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that aims to lift and reshape the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. The procedure can be performed with or without implants, depending on the patient's needs and preferences.

The procedure

During a breast lift procedure, the surgeon will make incisions around the areola and may also make additional incisions under the breast fold. The excess skin is then removed, and the remaining tissue is lifted and reshaped to create a more youthful and firm appearance. The nipples are also repositioned to a higher location on the breast.


After a breast lift, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication. It is important to avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting for several weeks after the procedure to allow the breasts to heal properly. Most patients can return to work and resume normal activities within two to three weeks.


Breast lift surgery is usually a very successful operation and restores the perky youthful appearance of saggy breasts. This can improve self-confidence both in and out of clothes, underwear, and swimwear. The results of a breast lift are long-lasting although aging, weight fluctuations, and further pregnancy can all affect the shape and position of the breasts over time.

Saggy breasts after childbirth

Childbirth often has a negative impact on the shape of a woman's breasts. This is because breast volume rapidly increases during pregnancy, then reduces after the baby is born leaving the breast skin loose. This leads to sagging and drooping. If you are unhappy with the way your breasts look after breastfeeding, you may be an excellent candidate for a breast lift.
