A breast uplift aims to lift the breasts further up the chest wall. It is sometimes combined with other procedures, such as a breast reduction to generate best results.
There are a lot of different methods which can be used to carry out the uplift procedure. The most common is known as the vertical scar breast mastopexy. This tends to result in minimal scarring, and it allows for the highest uplift. The new position of the nipple will be marked before you go under the knife.
If the nipple will need to be moved a lot, a technique known as wise pattern mastopexy may be better suited. This is also a better approach for those with large amounts of excessive skin. The only real difference between this and the vertical scar method is that an additional horizontal scar is left along the crease of the breast.
The exact method will be determined during your consultation. On average, the procedure will take around two hours to complete.
