Mastopexy Augmentation (Uplift With Implants)

Mastopexy Augmentation (Uplift With Implants)

Mastopexy augmentation, commonly known as a breast uplift with implants, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the volume and improve the position of the breasts simultaneously. This procedure combines the lifting and reshaping aspects of a breast uplift (mastopexy) with the volumising benefits of breast augmentation, offering a solution for individuals looking to address sagging while also increasing breast size. Consultant Plastic Surgeon Anca Breahna, with her expertise in cosmetic breast surgery, provides a tailored approach to mastopexy augmentation, ensuring that each patient achieves a balanced, natural-looking result that aligns with their aesthetic goals. Ideal for you if you are experiencing volume loss due to ageing, pregnancy, or significant weight changes, this procedure can dramatically rejuvenate the breast’s appearance, creating a more youthful and fuller silhouette.

Who Needs Breast Uplift with Implants Surgery

Candidates for mastopexy augmentation are those looking for a comprehensive solution to improve both the position and size of their breasts. Anca identifies suitable candidates based on several criteria:

  • Volume Loss and Sagging: Ideal candidates have experienced a loss of breast volume and significant sagging due to factors like ageing, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight fluctuations. These women seek not just an increase in size but also a correction of the breast position to a more youthful elevation.
  • Asymmetry or Shape Concerns: Some patients may have asymmetrical breasts or are unhappy with their breasts’ shape. This procedure can address both concerns simultaneously, creating balance and a more aesthetically pleasing contour.
  • Physical and Emotional Well-being: Candidates should be in good physical health, with realistic expectations about the outcomes of the surgery. Anca ensures that patients understand the potential results and the commitment required for post-operative care.
  • Motivation for Surgery: Individuals motivated by a desire to enhance their self-image and confidence, rather than external pressures, are likely to be more satisfied with the results of their mastopexy augmentation.

Benefits Of Mastopexy Augmentation (Uplift With Implants)

Miss Breahna’s surgical skills enable a natural looking result to be achieved. Once the post-surgical swelling has subsided, the final outcome reveals breasts that have a fuller and perkier appearance. Lifting and reshaping the breasts can also create a more youthful look, having restored both volume and their original positioning on the chest. If the nipples have also been addressed, their shape and size will look improved and more in proportion with the appearance of the breasts.

Body confidence is an issue that many women can be affected by, especially as they get older and the body changes in appearance. Improving the shape and size of the breasts can play a big role in boosting a woman’s confidence, impacting positively on her emotional well-being.

Types of Breast Uplift with Implants

Implant Type and Placement

The choice between saline and silicone implants, and the decision on placement either above or below the pectoral muscle, is crucial. Anca works closely with you to select the best option based on your body type, desired outcome, and lifestyle.

Uplift Techniques

Similar to a standard breast uplift, Anca may employ various techniques such as the crescent, peri-areolar, vertical, or inverted T-incision methods. The choice depends on the degree of lift required and your anatomical characteristics.

Customisation and Symmetry

Anca takes into account the existing breast tissue, the degree of sagging, and the desired final size to customise the procedure. This ensures a symmetrical, natural appearance, enhancing your figure and achieving their cosmetic goals.

Combination Procedure

This surgery is meticulously planned to address both the lifting of sagging breast tissue and the augmentation through implants in one procedure. This approach minimises recovery time and maximises aesthetic results.

Mastopexy Augmentation (Uplift With Implants) Procedure

The surgery is carried out by removing excess skin and tissue to lift the breast. The implant will then be placed to create volume and shape, and the nipple will also likely need to be repositioned to suit the newly elevated breast.

A mastopexy augmentation will involve an incision being made either around the areola (periareolar), and then vertically to meet the fold where the breast meets the chest (vertical) or vertically from the base of the areola to the crease and the horizontally across the crease beneath the breast (inverted T). The type of incision that is used will be determined by Miss Breahna depending on the amount of skin / tissue that needs to be removed.

According to the desired outcome, the size and placement of the implant will be discussed during your consultation, and you will be made aware of the expected final result.

Mastopexy augmentation combines breast uplift techniques with the placement of implants to achieve both lift and added volume. Anca offers several approaches to this procedure, each tailored to meet the specific needs and aesthetic goals of her patients.

Recovery and Aftercare

The recovery period for mastopexy augmentation is important for ensuring the best possible outcomes. Anca provides complete aftercare instructions and support throughout this phase:

  • Immediate Post-Op Care: Following the surgery, you may experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Anca prescribes medication to manage pain and recommends wearing a support bra to minimise swelling and support the new breast contour.
  • Activity Restrictions: You will be advised to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for several weeks post-surgery. Anca provides guidance on gradually resuming normal activities, ensuring that the healing process is not compromised.
  • Follow-Up Visits: Regular appointments with Anca allow her to monitor the healing process, remove sutures if necessary, and address any concerns. These visits are essential for assessing the progress and ensuring a smooth recovery.
  • Long-Term Care: To maintain the results, you should follow a healthy lifestyle, avoid significant weight fluctuations, and wear supportive bras. Anca also advises on scar care to minimise the visibility of surgical scars.


Patient satisfaction is the top priority for Anca. You can find how patients feel about her work below.
