Breast Lift

Breast Lift

A breast lift is a popular option, particularly after childbirth, weight changes or ageing, as the skin begins to lose its elasticity. This protein keeps the breasts looking younger and perkier. Breasts change over time, and several factors can affect their size and shape, including pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations and gravity, diminishing the natural supportive tissue of the breast. 

Your age, breast size and shape and the condition of your skin will impact the results of your breast lift, and they may advocate combining the procedure with breast implants to achieve a better outcome. 

If you opt for a breast lift, the surgeon may also measure your breasts and discuss the placement of the nipple and areola, as they may elevate or reposition them during surgery.

Breast lift surgery usually takes between one and a half to three hours. The most common incision technique is to use an anchor-shaped incision following the natural contour of the breast, which will outline the area from which breast skin will be removed and define the new location for the nipple and areola. Stitches close the incision and are usually around the areola. The incision may extend downwards in a vertical line below the areola and along the crease of the breasts. 

Patients with smaller breasts or less sagging may be suitable for procedures that involve less extensive incisions.

After surgery, you may experience bruising, swelling and discomfort. You may be required to wear an elastic bandage or sports bra over gauze, replaced by a soft support bra after a few days which you will need to wear day and night for three to four weeks. You may experience some loss of feeling in your nipple and breast skin caused by swelling after surgery, which usually resides within six weeks. For some patients, it can take up to a year for sensation to return and occasionally the numbness is long-lasting.

After surgery, you will be given detailed information for your recovery. You should avoid lifting anything heavy above your head for three to four weeks, refrain from strenuous sports for around a month and you may have to avoid sex for a week or two. If you become pregnant following a breast lift operation, this usually will not impact your ability to breastfeed as the milk ducts and nipples usually remain intact.

Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation involves either the use of breast implants or a fat transfer to the breasts. Breast implants are one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for women in the UK, giving patients of all shapes and sizes the opportunity to increase cup size and the fullness of their breasts. 

There are many different types, sizes and shapes of implant available. During your consultation, your surgeon will help you decide which implant is best for you, depending on your preferences. Some offer more upper pole fullness giving a lifting and rounder effect, whereas others have a more natural teardrop shape.

Breast augmentation surgery usually takes between one and three hours. There are three different insertion points which can determine how visible scarring is; this includes below the breast where the implant is inserted in the crease under the breast. Making the incision around the areola is a virtually scar-free area option as the scar is concealed due to the areola’s colour and texture. Lastly, inserting the implants through the armpit is another virtually scar-free option as any residual scarring is not visible when the arms are not elevated. 

Working through the incision point, the surgeon will lift the breast tissue and skin to create a pocket, and the implant is either placed directly behind the breast tissue or under the chest muscle. Breast implants carry some risks, and the technique can affect this.

After surgery, you may require drainage from the incisions, and in some cases, small drainage tubes may be inserted beneath the skin to prevent fluid build-up. Still, these will usually be removed before you are discharged from the hospital. To control swelling and help your skin better fit its new contours, you will be fitted with a supportive bra that you will need to wear day and night for six weeks following surgery. You will usually be able to resume regular activity within one week, and exercise after six.

Breast implants are also sometimes used for reconstructive surgeries, for example, after a mastectomy. 

Depending on the natural shape and size of your breasts before surgery, they may recommend combining a breast augmentation with a breast lift.
