Being classed as major surgery a Breast uplift surgery procedure is always performed under a general anaesthetic.
The procedure is approached in several different ways. Considerations are taken to include current breast shape and the extent of any remodelling required.
Breastfeeding, weight gain, and subsequent weight loss
These are all contributing factors which bring about the situation where your breast are not how you would like them to be.
Later on, in life, hormonal changes cause the shape to change, which often occur at the time of menopause. Or it could be very likely ageing takes its toll.
Breast Uplift Procedure
The breast uplift procedure produces extremely very good visual effects. Nevertheless, some scarring is inevitable. As it is necessary to reduce the excess skin other than by way of excision there is no other way. Over a period of time, however, they do become less noticeable.

Breast Uplift Surgery Aftercare
For several weeks the patient is advised to wear an elastic sports style bra. Normal activities may be resumed after 6 weeks. Breast uplift patients usually remain at the clinic for one to two nights depending on the extent of surgery and taking into account age of the patient. On discharge, the support bandages are changed, at the same time drains removed. For the next few days, the patient should avoid any physical exertion. The breast uplift surgery bandages will be changed again on the 3rd or 4th day. The sutures are then removed around 7 to 10 days. At the same time, the patient is given instruction on scar pressure massage. (update we now use dissolving sutures)

Post op scarring.
Be aware, for some time scarring will remain around the mamma site. The scars run downwards towards the lower breast area resembling an anchor shape. They do actually fade away but not for a few years.Many enquirers ask about the widely publicised “donut” lift. We do offer it, but, if the breast are very large, pendulous and heavy it will not work.
