Breast Lift with Enlargement
A loss of volume in the breasts can often cause sagging or drooping breasts, in which case an enlargement combined with an uplift procedure may be an option to help achieve the best results.
A breast enlargement with an uplift is a combined procedure that involves performing an uplift/mastopexy procedure which reduces the appearance of sagging, or droopy breasts and a breast augmentation/enlargement with an implant increases the size of the breast.
There are a lot of factors that can cause breast sagging and loss of volume which includes:
- Weight loss or gain
- Breast Feeding
All of these are common reasons as to why patients decide to have a combined mastopexy with implants procedure.
Our dedicated team of specialist Breast Plastic Surgeons and an experienced medical team will help and support you throughout your surgical journey.
2 Stage Procedure
Some surgeons prefer to perform a breast lift and enlargement procedure as a 2-stage procedure. This means that a breast uplift / mastopexy will be performed first and once recovered the patient will have a second operation for their breast enlargement procedure. This is often to help minimise the risks of breast lift and enlargement surgery or if any breast abnormality needs to be corrected first.
You will attend a consultation with one of our expert breast surgeons. During your consultation, your surgeon will:
- Discuss your expectations from surgery.
- Detail the risks and complications of breast uplift and enlargement surgery.
- Review your medical history.
- Examine and measure your breasts.
- Recommend an implant type, size, and position.
- Discuss whether surgery will be performed as a 1 stage or 2 stage procedure.
- Go through the aftercare and recovery process involved in breast enlargement and uplift surgery.
Following your consultation, you will meet with your dedicated patient coordinator who will be your point of contact should you decide to go ahead with the procedure.
Your surgeon will then:
