Also known as ‘mastopexy’, breast uplift surgery is commonly performed at Dr Abood’s Cambridge clinic to address the following conditions:
- Sagging or droopy breasts
- Flat, empty looking breasts
- Asymmetric breasts
It is natural for breasts to change shape throughout a person’s life. Lifestyle choices can have a great influence on this, but genetics and age are just as responsible. Weight loss, pregnancy and breastfeeding are further culprits.
Breast uplift surgery can restore a pert and youthful appearance to the breasts by adding shape and volume. Essentially, the breasts are raised to sit higher up on the chest, producing a firm and balanced effect.
Dr Abood understands that it takes a lot of thoughtful consideration to commit to any type of cosmetic surgery. The consultation phase is there to give you the information you need on the breast uplift procedure so that you know what the surgery entails and can make an informed decision.
The consultation will be your chance to ask any questions and address any concerns. If you require more than one consultation session, this can easily be arranged. AA Plastic surgery wants you to be as comfortable as possible in the decision you make.
During the consultation, you will discuss why you want breast uplift surgery and what you would like to achieve in terms of shape and size. You will be asked to provide your relevant medical history so that we can tailor the treatment to your needs.
As part of the consultation and surgical planning, Dr Abood will need to examine and photograph your breasts, but he will be accompanied by one of his nursing team while he does this. You may request to have a friend or relative with you for support.
Breast uplift surgery at the AA Cambridge clinic usually takes around 2 hours to perform and is carried out under general anaesthetic, meaning that you will be unconscious. You will be able to go home the same day as the surgery.
You will have decided at consultation whether or not you want the procedure to involve breast implants. Implants can be used to significantly increase the size of your breasts at the same time as uplifting them. The degree to which your breasts are sagging will likely impact your decision.
During the procedure, Dr Abood will mark the area around your areola and the underside of your breasts with pen. This will act as a guide for him as he removes excess skin and tissue and insert any desired implants. The nipples can be repositioned at this stage.
The incisions will be closed with stitches in a manner that will not visibly scar. Dr Abood can advise you on scar management.
Recovery and Results
Recovery can take up to 6 weeks and we will still be here to support you as you recover.
Before you go home, after the procedure, Dr Abood will give you detailed aftercare instructions and explain how the surgery went. You will be supplied with a supportive post-surgical bra to help you heal.
A follow-up appointment will be arranged one week after surgery so that we can keep track of your progress and assess your recovery. Further follow-ups will be made for 6 weeks, 3 months and 1 year after surgery.
During your recovery period, your breasts will likely feel swollen and tender, but this can be managed with the appropriate pain relief medication that we will provide.
Swelling takes many weeks to go down completely. Breast uplift surgery is a surgical procedure and you will need to take recovery seriously, allowing your body time to heal from the stress that has been put on it.
Any physical exertion should be kept to a low-level for a couple of weeks and this might affect how long you take off work. You can increase your activity levels gradually as and when your body is comfortable.
Patient safety is at the forefront of every procedure that Dr Abood undertakes. While any surgical procedure carries risks, Dr Abood will not take any unnecessary risks and would not recommend breast uplift surgery if it wasn’t right for you.
