A woman’s breasts naturally change and age over the course of time due to ageing, weight fluctuations or pregnancy, resulting in sagging, loss of elasticity and a change in overall appearance of the breast. An uplift operation raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new lifted contour. Breast uplifts can rejuvenate your breast profile so that it looks youthful, firm and uplifted.

The difference between an uplift and augmentation is that breast uplift does not significantly change the size of your breasts. If you require your breasts to look fuller, you may wish to consider breast augmentation surgery.

Operation time on average takes 45 minutes and requires you to stay 1 night in hospital. You will be given pain relief for the discomfort you experience in the first few days and you may be encouraged to wear a firm bra or dressing to support the breasts. We recommend you refrain from strenuous exercise. Please also note that breast lifts will not last forever and the effects of pregnancy, aging and weight gain may cause them to begin to sag again, as will time.
