Breast Uplift / Mastopexy


Breast Uplift, clinically referred to as Mastopexy, is a specialised surgical procedure aimed at elevating and reshaping sagging or drooping breasts. This surgery is often sought by women who have experienced significant life events such as ageing, hormonal shifts, pregnancies, and substantial weight changes, all of which can lead to a loss of breast firmness and elevation.

Mastopexy not only aims to lift the breasts to a more youthful position but also focuses on enhancing their overall contour and shape, providing a rejuvenated aesthetic appeal.


The journey toward undergoing a Mastopexy begins with an initial, exhaustive consultation session. During this pivotal meeting, the surgeon conducts a comprehensive assessment that includes evaluating the quality of breast tissue, the skin’s elasticity, and the breasts’ general health. This consultation serves as a platform for patients to openly discuss their aesthetic goals, functional concerns, and any apprehensions. Based on this dialogue, the surgeon crafts a surgical plan that is uniquely tailored to meet the patient’s objectives.

Due to the intricacy of this procedure, general anaesthesia will be recommended. The selection of the anaesthesia type is a collaborative decision made after considering the patient’s overall health status, any pre-existing conditions, and their comfort level with anaesthesia. While local anaesthesia coupled with sedation is often the go-to choice, general anaesthesia may be recommended for more extensive or complex surgeries.

Mastopexy is a highly individualised surgical procedure, and the techniques employed can vary widely. Incisions may be made in a circular pattern around the areola, extending vertically down from the areola to the natural breast crease or running horizontally along the breast crease. Through these strategically placed incisions, the surgeon meticulously removes excess skin, reshapes the breast tissue, and elevates the breast to a more aesthetically pleasing position. Once the desired alterations are achieved, the incisions are closed using advanced suturing techniques, and topical antibacterial ointments may be applied to minimise the risk of post-operative infections.


PLEASE NOTE: While some results may be visible sooner, final results often take a few months for swelling to fully subside and implants settle into their final position.
Actual return to activity times will be discussed and agreed with your Surgeon.


You may choose to undergo an Beeast Uplift / Mastopexy for a number of reasons:

One of the most compelling benefits of Mastopexy is its dramatic improvement to the appearance of sagging or drooping breasts. The surgery elevates the breasts to a more youthful position, enhances their overall shape, and can even improve the symmetry between the breasts, contributing to a more balanced and harmonious overall physique.
Although Mastopexy is primarily an aesthetic procedure, it can also offer functional benefits. For instance, lifting the breasts can result in improved posture and relieve skin irritation and chafing caused by the sagging breast tissue.
The aesthetic and functional improvements achieved through Mastopexy often have a ripple effect, significantly boosting self-esteem and self-confidence. Many patients report feeling more empowered, confident, and comfortable in their skin, which positively impacts their social interactions and professional engagements.

A breast uplift primarily focuses on raising and reshaping sagging breasts. In contrast, breast augmentation involves increasing breast size using implants or fat transfer, and breast reduction aims to reduce the size of overly large breasts.
Most patients can return to work within 1-2 weeks, depending on the nature of their job. Strenuous activities and heavy lifting should be avoided for at least 4-6 weeks. Following your surgeon’s specific recommendations for a safe recovery is essential.
Breast uplift surgery is typically performed under general anaesthesia, ensuring the patient is comfortable and pain-free during the procedure. As with any anaesthesia, there are potential risks, which should be discussed with the anesthesiologist.
Some patients may experience temporary changes in nipple sensation after the surgery. In most cases, this is temporary, and sensation returns over time. However, there’s a small risk of permanent sensation changes.
A breast uplift can be combined with other procedures like fat grafting or breast augmentation to achieve the desired volume and shape. Combining procedures can provide comprehensive results tailored to the patient’s goals.
