Breast Uplift Surgery FAQPublished on 26th August 2019

Mastopexy surgery is an operation which involves the removal of any extra skin around the breast area. The aim of the procedure is to give the breasts a more youthful look and a firmer feel. Breast uplift surgery provides patients with a way to reshape their breasts to achieve a more desirable appearance. A breast uplift does not increase breast size, unless a breast implant is inserted, however they may feel more voluminous and firmer.

Following a breast lift operation, some minimal scarring expected and which will be permanent.  Any scars will appear red at initially, however over approximately 12 months they should fade to a lighter pink colour over time.  During the Mastopexy procedure, the Plastic Surgeon will try to ensure that scarring is minimal, however your particular skin type, age and lifestyle following surgery will depend on the outcome of the scarring.
