Breast Uplift: Rejuvenate Your Silhouette and Embrace Confidence

Many women experience changes in their breasts over time. Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and simply the natural ageing process can all contribute to sagging, stretched skin and a loss of volume. This can lead to feelings of self-consciousness and a desire to regain a more youthful silhouette.

Here at Mr. Erdmann’s plastic surgery practice at the Spire Washington Hospital in the UK, we understand these concerns. Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure designed to address these changes, restoring a perkier, more lifted appearance to your breasts.

What is a Breast Lift (Mastopexy)?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and tightens the underlying tissue to reshape and elevate the breasts. It can also address stretched or misshapen nipples. Mr. Erdmann will perform a personalised breast lift based on your unique needs and desired outcome.

    • Benefits of Breast Lift Surgery:
    • Improved Shape and Appearance: Breast lift surgery can significantly improve the shape and definition of your breasts, creating a more youthful and perky look.
    • Enhanced Confidence: Feeling comfortable and confident in your clothes is a major benefit of breast lift surgery. By restoring a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, you can experience a boost in self-esteem and confidence.
    • Increased Support: Tightening the breast tissue can provide better breast support, which can be especially beneficial for women with larger breasts who experience discomfort or back pain.
    • Improved Nipple Position: In some cases, a breast lift can also address stretched or downward-pointing nipples, restoring a more natural position.
    • Implants can be used to enhance the upper poles, although too large a size is not recommended.
    • The breast may be auto-augmented, with increased fullness achieved through use of the patient’s own tissues.



Types of Breast Lift Techniques

There are various breast lift techniques, and the best approach for you will depend on the extent of skin laxity and your desired results. Mr. Erdmann will discuss these options in detail during your consultation. Here are some common techniques:

      • Periareolar Lift: This technique focuses on removing excess skin around the areola, ideal for mild to moderate sagging with minimal skin removal needed.
      • Vertical Lift: This approach creates a vertical incision around the areola and down the crease below the breast, removing more extensive skin and repositioning the nipple.
      • T-Shaped Lift: This technique involves an incision around the areola and down the crease, with an additional horizontal incision across the fold below the breast, suited for significant sagging and skin removal.
      • Implant augmentation mastopexy– additional use of an implant for enhanced fullness.
      • Auto-augmentation mastopexy – no implants are used in this technique

    Recovery after Breast Lift Surgery

    Following your breast lift surgery, Mr. Erdmann will provide detailed instructions on post-operative care. You can expect some swelling and bruising initially, which will gradually subside. Wearing a surgical bra for support is essential during the healing process. Most patients experience minimal discomfort, which can be managed with medication. While recovery times vary, you can typically return to light activities within a few days and resume most normal activities within a few weeks.

      Is Breast Lift Surgery Right for You?

      If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts due to sagging or loss of volume, and are in good overall health, a breast lift may be a good option for you. During your consultation with Mr. Erdmann, discuss your goals and expectations. He will thoroughly evaluate your breasts, assess your skin elasticity, and recommend the most suitable technique to achieve your desired outcome.

      Feeling Confident in Your Skin

      Breast lift surgery is a personal decision, and Mr. Erdmann is committed to helping you achieve the results you desire. By restoring a more youthful and confident appearance to your breasts, you can experience a renewed sense of self-esteem and feel comfortable and empowered in your own skin.
