How will the scar look?
The most common breast uplift incision is an anchor shape; it will surround your areola run vertically down to the breast crease then horizontally along the natural breast crease. With time, the incision lines will fade and lighten in colour.
What type of bra can I wear after the procedure?
You must wear a non-underwired sports bra or post-op bra for 24 hours a day over the first 6 weeks after your breast uplift procedure. Your nurse will advise the best places to get them from.
Do I really need a breast uplift (mastopexy)?
You should follow the recommendations of your surgeon when making an informed decision about whether or not to have a mastopexy. Our Patient Coordinator and Surgeon consultations at a Glow clinic will provide you with all the information you need about your expectations, results, and possible risks of surgery. If you’re concerned about sagging and loose skin, then a breast uplift (possibly combined with a breast enlargement) could be right for you. Your surgeon will be able to give you a range of options to ensure you have the best results for the long-term.
Does a breast uplift require implants?
Breast uplifts without implants are the standard type of procedure. A breast uplift with implants is called an augmented uplift or breast lift and augmentation.
Can your breastfeed after an uplift?
Because of where the incisions are made, the removal of breast tissue and glands and the fact that the nipple is separated from the milk ducts, it may not be possible to breastfeed after a breast uplift. If you are wanting to breastfeed after an uplift, we would advise that you discuss this with your surgeon.
