What is a Breast lift?
Breast lift surgery is requested by women for several reasons. The size and shape of the breasts can be affected by pregnancy, massive weight loss, the ageing process and the effects of gravity. A breast lift is designed to improve the shape of the breasts that have developed sagging or have become deflated after pregnancy. Breast lift surgery can help to raise the level of the breasts to a higher level on the chest to help them look perkier and more youthful. The breasts may have lost their youthful contour after pregnancy and breastfeeding, which can make them appear droopy.

Should I have a breast lift without implants?
Many women may already be happy with the size of their breasts and are not looking to increase breast size. What they would like to achieve are breasts that have an improved shape that sits higher up on the chest so that they appear perkier and have an overall youthful appearance.
A breast lift carried out on its own without breast implants is an excellent procedure for women who want to maintain the existing size of their breasts and do not want implants. A breast lift does not improve the overall volume of the breasts, nor does it enhance cleavage. Some women would like to achieve an increase in breast size but may not be keen on having breast implants. They often desire extra fullness in the upper part of the breasts, also known as upper pole fullness. A breast lift with auto augmentation is an excellent treatment to achieve improved breast shape and enhanced upper pole fullness without breast implants.
Breast lift with auto augmentation uses your existing native breast tissue to enhance the shape of the breast and improve volume in the upper part of the breast. Our plastic surgery clinic is one of the few centres in the UK to specialise in breast lift with auto augmentation.
Should I combine a Breast lift with implants?
Choosing to combine a breast lift with implants has several benefits. Breast lift with implants is also known as an augmentation mastopexy. This procedure can both improve the overall shape of the breasts as well as increase the size of the breasts with the addition of implants, and this also helps to enhance cleavage and overall fullness.
Adding breast implants to a breast lift allows women to achieve better-shaped and larger breasts, which maintain their youthful contour over time if women are keen to enhance both breast size and shape in the same procedure. A breast lift alone is less likely to maintain youthful results after ten years, as the natural ageing process will eventually lead to sagging or drooping breasts.
If you choose to have a breast lift surgery on its own, the breasts will age as with any other part of the body. When a breast lift is combined with implants, breast implants help to maintain a certain degree of firmness for a longer period of time. This helps to make the breast appear more youthful for longer. Combining breast implants with a breast lift in the same procedure also involves a single recovery period which is simpler and quicker than having a breast lift and breast implants separately.
