What is breast uplift surgery?
A breast uplift – mastopexy – addresses the issue of breasts that have sagged and lost definition.
The surgery leads to a more youthful appearance and feel, the breasts firmer and lifted up to a more flattering position.
In many cases, the uplift will be combined with implants or fat transfer to also add volume and create a more flattering appearance.
Breast Uplift Process
The breast uplift process, as with any procedure, begins with a detailed consultation. This would be with Doctor Fazel and would enable you to talk and him to listen, before then outlining a recommended course of action.
An assessment would be carried out to ascertain the ideal breast shape post mastopexy and your medical record would be factored in.
The surgery sees the saggy breast reshaped and excess skin removed, the supporting breast tissue tightened
The nipple and areola are repositioned and resized.
As a patient, you do not need to be an expert on the forms of technique used, but Doctor Fazel will typically use the donut lift, lollipop lift or anchor lift. The best option in your individual case would be outlined in the consultation.
Alongside the breast uplift it is common to also require some additional volume and this can be created either through implants or fat transfer – the breast uplift and augmentation can be performed in a single operation.
The breast uplift – and potential augmentation – can also be combined with a tummy tuck as part of the ‘mummy makeover’
Such is Doctor Fazel’s expertise that complex cases from other surgeons are often referred to him.

Benefits of Mastopexy
Mastopexy is a procedure with very clear benefits when the shape and position of the breasts have become a cause for concern.
There is an improvement to the appearance, perhaps combined with augmentation, the body is returned to a more youthful, firmer appearance.
This benefit is obvious, but it can also do so much to boost mental health and self-esteem. Whether caused through ageing, pregnancy or another reason, seeing the breasts sag can damage confidence, even making experiences that should be enjoyable such as holidays and intimacy a worry.
This is the true benefit of so many cosmetic surgeries, they make the person feel more confident about themselves and so they portray the very best version of who they are – this impacts work, relationships and all aspects of life.

Common FAQs are also answered, including:
How does one know if a breast lift is needed?
During the consultation, Maisam Fazel will assess the breast shape in relation to how it lies on the chest and in relation to the body. If the nipple sits below the breast crease, it is likely a breast lift will be needed.
How long will it take for breast lift scars to heal?
The scars will be pink for the first few months after surgery, but will gradually flatten and fade to a silver line by about 18 months. Different skin types heal differently. Maisam Fazel will provide advice on how to reduce scarring.
Is it better to wait until one’s family is complete before having a breast lift?
Maisam Fazel will discuss this in full during the consultation. If one is planning to have children in the near future, then it might be best to delay a breast lift until after one has completed one’s family breastfeeding, as subsequent pregnancy or breastfeeding can affect the results.
