Breast Uplift (Mastopexy) Surgery With or Without Implants

By Elena Prousskaia MD, FRCS (Plast), FEBOPRAS

Female breasts tend to drop with age, or after pregnancy and breast-feeding. It is a factor of both aging and the simple process of gravity that, over time, the breasts start to droop and sag.

The act of gaining and losing weight may also contribute to the process, meaning that over time women lose the natural sense of self-confidence which comes with firm, youthful looking breasts.

What is a Breast Lift (Mastopexy) Surgery?

The shape and projection of your breasts can be improved significantly by a breast lift procedure, also known as a mastopexy.

It generally gives your breasts a more youthful appearance and breast enlargement (with implants) can sometimes be done at the same time, in order to give you a larger cup size. This surgery can be carried out with implants for extra fullness and volume.

Breast Lift Surgery Process

The type of breast surgery that would suit you best is a decision which we can make together, following a long conversation and examination in my clinic.

It is normal to have a second consultation, once you have had time to consider the different options and for you to ask any additional questions. After the decision is made we will carefully prepare for your surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Consider a Breast Uplift (Mastopexy) ? 

For many women, breast uplift surgery can be a positive way to restore a sense of body confidence, boosting self-esteem, and allowing the wearing of tops without a bra, despite perhaps having had children. With rejuvenated breasts, women may feel more attractive.

What are the Alternatives to Breast Uplift Surgery ?

As a specialist in breast surgery, Elena can advise you during your consultation of the full range of options available. For some women, breast enlargement or reduction may be a more beneficial procedure, but there are several possibilities.

Breast Lift Surgical Aftercare ?

Elena will talk you through all the necessary pre-surgery investigations, as well as the after-care required. She will also fully explain the risks associated with the operation. We will only go ahead with the procedure once you are completely ready and happy with the choice we have made together.

Are there risks involved with breast uplift surgery ?

Any procedure that requires a general anaesthetic comes with some risks. The most common risk specific to breast surgery is known as capsular contracture, which is when scar tissue forms a capsule that constricts the breast implant. There is a low incidence of this and proper aftercare goes a long way to minimising this further.

WHAT DO ELENA'S PATIENTS SAY...

Had surgeon with Elena in September, I was extremely anxious about the whole thing, but Elena and her whole team, from admin to the hospital staff were amazing with me and reassured me throughout my journey. I can not recommend Elena enough, and she has changed my life for the better! Already saving for my next operation with her!

SM – Abdominoplasty & Arm Lift

From the first consultation with Elena I knew I had chosen well, she explains everything to you in the way a person can understand. I wish I had it done long ago as this has changed my life. I am 100% pleased with the outcome. There are things you have to do to help with healing but this is explained to you. I am now a month on from surgery, Elena is very pleased with my progress. I went to the Spire and all the staff were very kind and professional. The anaesthetist came to talk to me and Elena came to visit me before my surgery. I am forever grateful to Elena for her kindness, understanding and outstanding work as a plastic surgeon.

CW – Breast Reduction

As I write this review I’m led on a sun lounger on holiday in a swimsuit which actually fits me, the first time in years I am not wearing an ill fitted costume with a bra underneath just to hold me up and it’s all thanks to Elena.  I cannot recommend her highly enough! I had thought about a breast reduction for many years but never had the courage to go for it but I am so so pleased I finally decided to go for it, from my initial consultation I knew I was making the right decision. Elena and her PA Heather were great from the beginning talking me through everything and answered any questions I had at any time. Absolutely amazing I can’t thank Elena enough!

CT – Breast Reduction

Obviously having any sort of surgery is a big decision and sometimes a nerve-wracking one but I cannot express how happy I am that I chose Elena as my surgeon. She was attentive, thorough and made me feel so at ease at all times. Thanks to her work ethic and professionalism I knew my surgery would be a success and it was. The after care she provides is also fantastic and I cannot emphasise how happy I am with my choice. Both Elena and her practice team are with you every step of the way and couldn't have been any kinder. So basically- 11/10!

AM – Labiaplasty

If only I'd known about Elena years ago. I'd been wanting to have surgery since I was diagnosed with Tuberous Breasts in puberty. Elena’s before & afters were the best I'd seen, they were all beautifully natural & in-proportion. I felt safe from my first consultation with Elena. She is honest, professional & extremely thorough in her process. The care I received has been superb & her team were brilliant. Now five weeks post-op & I can say the results are better than I ever could have imagined. I'd recommend Elena to anyone who is looking for the best possible experience, especially those looking to have surgery for Tuberous Breasts. It's truly been a life changing gift & I can finally love my body.
