Breast Lift With Implants
If your breasts are sagging or have lost shape due to childbirth, weight loss or as part of the ageing process and you have very little breast volume, a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves a combination of a breast lift (mastopexy) and the insertion of breast implants (breast enlargement) can achieve your desired look.
Breast uplift surgery with the addition of implants will elevate ptosis (drooping) breasts by correcting the shape, position and increase the size of the breasts during one operation that takes approximately 2-2.5 hours, under a general anaesthetic and requires an overnight stay in hospital. Breast uplift surgery is extremely effective in order to give the breasts a more youthful and pert appearance.
If you already have sufficient breast volume then a breast lift without implants may be suggested by your surgeon. All your options will be discussed in detail at your surgeon consultation including the size of the implant and the extent of the breast lift.
Breast lift operations involve lifting and repositioning the nipple in the centre of the breasts. The breast skin may also need to be tightened and the breast tissue repositioned higher on the chest, at which point implants will be inserted.
Lifting the breast will involve a certain amount of extra scarring. This may be restricted to the area around the nipple (circumareolar) or extend onto the breast (lollipop or anchor). Your incisions will be closed with either dissolvable or removable sutures.
Your surgeon may place a drain on each side to remove unwanted fluid from around your implants. These are usually removed prior to discharge. Occasionally drains need to be left in place for a little longer.
The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic and will involve an overnight stay in the hospital following surgery. In the majority of cases the patient is discharged the next day.
The exact cost of a breast lift with implants will depend on your personal situation and your desired results. At your £25 surgeon consultation, you will receive a premium cosmetic surgery experience, your surgeon will talk you through exactly how much your procedure will cost during your consultation based on your personal surgical requirements. Take a look at our guide prices page, you can use our starting price as a general indication of the breast lift with implants cost and also see what a maximum budget could be for a more complicated or intensive procedure.
If you’d prefer not to make the full payment upfront, we also offer finance packages so you can spread out repayments.
Your breast implants need to be held in their new position, so you will require a surgical support bra to stay in place for a two to four-week period after breast lift and enlargement surgery. During this time you must restrict your activity to ensure the breast implants are not disturbed. Your surgeon may also recommend an upper pole strap to hold your breasts in the desired position.
Your first post-operative consultation will take place approximately seven to 10 days after your surgery. Read more about breast surgery recovery
Gabriela opted for a breast lift with implants procedure following the impact that breast feeding had on her breast appearance and her confidence as a result of this. Following her procedure with us she said “I am absolutely over the moon with my new breasts!”.
