Uplift or Mastopexy


Treatment overview

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that aims to lift and reshape sagging breasts. Over time, factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and the natural aging process can cause breasts to lose their firmness and elasticity. A breast lift can reverse these effects, providing you with a more youthful and perky breast appearance.

Some patients with larger breasts may require some removal of tissue which is referred to as a breast reduction. Others may not have much volume and so may decide to have an implant to provide more fullness as well as an uplift and this is called an augmentation mastopexy.

Before & Afters

“I can’t thank my surgeon Dr Reza Sedghi Nassab, he’s been fantastic, answered all my questions, made me feel at ease & felt in safe hands. He’s a very good surgeon with a lovely bedside manner.”

Breast Uplift


A breast lift is performed under a general anaesthetic and is usually performed as a day case. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, and the underlying breast tissue is reshaped and lifted. The nipple and areola may be repositioned to achieve a more natural and aesthetically pleasing result.

You may experience mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising initially, but these will subside over time. Most patients can return to their normal activities within a week or two, although strenuous exercises should be avoided for 6 weeks.

Restored Youthful Appearance: A breast lift can reverse the effects of sagging, giving your breasts a more youthful and uplifted look.
Improved Breast Contour: By reshaping the breast tissue, a breast lift can enhance your overall breast contour, creating a more balanced and proportional appearance.
Boosted Self-Confidence: Many women find that a breast lift not only improves their physical appearance but also boosts their self-esteem and confidence.
Clothing Options: With a lifted and firmer bustline, you’ll have a wider range of clothing options available, allowing you to wear outfits that flatter your figure.

the risks and complications associated with the uplift/reduction surgery which include: bleeding; haematoma; bruising; swelling; asymmetry in size, shape, nipple position; nipple loss, risks being higher in smokers; change in sensation to the nipple; further drooping or ptosis in time; wound breakdown; delay in healing; fat or skin necrosis; abnormal scarring such as hypertrophic or keloid; seroma; bottoming out; changes with time, weight, and pregnancy; inability to breast feed; risks of thrombosis; and, general anaesthetic risks. We have also discussed the scarring involved with this procedure and that includes scarring around the nipple, underneath the breast and vertically down the centre of the breast.

We have to warn you that you may not be able to breast feed after having an uplift procedure.

I would recommend waiting for 6 weeks before flying long haul.  This is to ensure that everything has settled and there are likely to be no problems prior to flying.  You may be able to travel short haul after 2 weeks but you will still need to wear your support bra for 6 weeks following surgery.

The normal recommendation is 6 weeks for strenuous physical activity. Exercising earlier may cause increases in blood pressure and heart rate that may increase the risk of bleeding.

Patients are advised to wear a support bra for the first 6 weeks following breast lift. The support bra should ideally have a zip at the front for easier changing. After the 6 weeks, you should be able to wear normal under-wired bras again. We recommend wearing a good supportive bra as much as possible to reduce further drooping with time.

The scars are usually around the nipple, vertically downwards and underneath the breast in an anchor pattern.

The cost of the procedure will vary slightly according to where it is performed. The prices start from £9500. To find out more information about the cost of breast lift surgery book a consultation with Mr Nassab.
