For women who are looking to get rid of droopy breasts for a perkier and more youthful look, there are now several different options to achieve this. Deciding on the right option for you can be challenging without professional advice. Fortunately, here at Centre for Surgery, our surgeons are experienced in all types of breast surgery and will be able to provide customised recommendations to help you achieve better-shaped breasts.
Option a – Breast augmentation with implants
Breast augmentation using implants is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the UK. Modern breast implants are now even safer than ever before. Natural-looking results can be achieved, given the wide variety of different implant customisation options. When considering breast implant surgery, there are several factors you will need to consider when choosing the ideal implant. At your consultation, your plastic surgeon will give detailed advice on the ideal incision for implant surgery, optimum breast implant placement, and the size, shape and surface of the implant. Given the wide range of options for breast implants, women can achieve their needs and desires with a straightforward surgical procedure. Breast augmentation is designed to enhance the volume of the breasts, address breast asymmetry or correct volume loss after pregnancy.
Option b – Breast lift surgery or mastopexy for droopy breasts
Another option for enhancing the breasts is with a breast lift procedure, also known as a mastopexy. Breast lift surgery is one of the best ways to eliminate sagging and restore a youthful shape. This procedure involves surgically repositioning the breast tissue and skin so that the breast sits at a higher level on the chest. This helps to create a perky look without appearing droopy.
Women can have a breast lift regardless of the size of their breasts. The procedure is increasingly requested as women get older. As part of the natural ageing process, the breasts begin to lose volume and skin elasticity as a result of stretching of the internal breast ligaments. Breast lift surgery is also commonly requested for women who have recently experienced pregnancy and breastfeeding. Other women may have always had sagging breasts for as long as they can remember and wish to achieve a youthful breast shape.
What is the difference between breast implants and a breast lift?
Breast implants and breast lifts are designed to address different purposes. A breast implant procedure can enhance volume, although it has a limited ability to improve the shape of the breasts, especially in moderate to severe forms of breast sagging. This is where a breast lift is highly beneficial to lift the breasts and enhancing breast shape. A breast lift alone does not improve breast volume. Many women choose to have a breast lift combined with implants for synergistic results that either procedure cannot achieve on its own. Many women after pregnancy are looking to achieve both an increase in volume and a lifting effect hence why breast lift with implants is a highly popular procedure in London.
Option c – Combining a breast lift and breast implants (breast lift with implants) for droopy breasts
In many cases, women would like to improve both the volume and the shape of their breasts. This is where combining a breast lift with breast implants can produce fantastic results. Breast lift with implants is also known as an augmentation mastopexy and can be performed as a single-stage procedure or as separate procedures. Your surgeon may recommend a maximum of 360cc implants if you choose to have the procedure as a single stage, as excessively large implants can increase the risk of complications. Larger implants can be chosen if you choose to stage your augmentation mastopexy procedure.

Which breast surgery option is best for droopy breasts?
Given the wide range of customisation options when it comes to enhancing the breasts, there is an option for every woman to have the breasts enlarged, made smaller or made more symmetrical. In addition to altering the size or shape of the breasts, the nipples can also be corrected, with inverted nipple correction and nipple reduction being the most popular procedures. Large areolas can be made smaller with areola reduction surgery.
