Breast Uplift (Mastopexy)

A breast uplift reshapes breasts and modifies the appearance of breasts that have changed over time. The skin loses elasticity through age, weight fluctuations, following pregnancy and breast feeding.

My experience at the Candover Clinic so far has been excellent. All of the staff have been very friendly and welcoming throughout my time there and the actual facilities in both the outpatient and surgical unit are very nice, modern and clean. I would recommend the Candover Clinic to anybody who was looking for private healthcare or a cosmetic surgery procedure.”

A breast uplift improves firmness and provides a more youthful shape and fuller breast. Breast uplift surgery involves lifting and changing the shape of the breasts. The surgery takes approximately 2-3 hours and as with breast reduction surgery, excess tissue and skin are removed. More commonly a breast uplift is performed alongside breast augmentation surgery.
