Breast Uplift Mastopexy

A breast lift (mastopexy) is the best way to raise and re-shape the breasts that are going through ‘breast ptosis’ (or sagging). You might notice lost volume and shape following pregnancy or weight loss, or due to the ageing process and gravity. In short, a breast uplift is the removal of excess skin from the breast area therefore allowing you to have more pert breasts following surgery.

A breast lift can improve the appearance of the breasts in several ways:

  • It elevates the breast tissue
  • It repositions the nipple and areola (pigmentation around the nipple)
  • It enhances breast shape.

The procedure duration can vary but most often takes 2 to 2.5 hours, depending on whether you would like to have implants or not. In most cases, we would prefer a patient to stay overnight after their surgery and we would be delighted to discuss your options in full at your consultation.

A past patient of The Avoca Clinic, Louise Quinn, has documented her breast uplift journey in a series of vlogs. Check out her pre-and post-surgery experiences here.

At the Avoca Clinic you will have all the reassurance that comes with our “Open Door” aftercare policy. It’s simple: once you have been treated at The Avoca Clinic, our door will always be open to you, anytime you need us. So, when we promise to take care of you before, during and after your procedure, we really mean it.

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

A breast uplift (mastopexy) is the best way to raise and re-shape the breast which may have lost volume and shape following pregnancy or weight loss, or due to the ageing process and gravity.

Many women ask to have an augmentation (implant) and a lift preformed at the same time. Whilst we can of course facilitate this we can only carry out this surgery in cases where the patient requires a small implant. If the patient requests a larger implant, the surgery should be carried out in 2 stages, with the augmentation performed first, followed by the uplift
within 2-3 months.

All breast implants have an outer shell of silicone elastomer (a very strong, synthetic shell) and are filled with silicone gel. We use only silicone implants, because of their very close resemblance to natural breast tissue.

Your surgeon will discuss the size and shape you are looking for and advise on what is possible based on your natural breast size and body shape. You will be able to take your time examining the look and feel of your new breasts using the visualization system in our Breast Suite.

All of the Implants used by the Avoca Clinic are made by leading manufacturers in the market and have a life-time warranty. However we recommend that you have your implants checked every 10 years.

The good news is that techniques have evolved and most women in the hands of our expert surgeons at the Avoca Clinic will just have the peri-areolar incision or ‘lollipop scar’. The recovery time varies from patient to patient but a recent survey shows that most women who diligently follow our discharge instructions will be back at work within 10 days of these procedures.

All surgery at The Avoca Clinic is carried out under general anaesthetic.

Before your surgery you will have a full consultation with one of our Plastic Surgeons. Then you will have a pre-operative assessment with our dedicated nurse in charge of preoperative care. After surgery, you have one or two appointments with our specialist postoperative nurse, followed by a check-up with your surgeon.For your complete assurance, we have a nurse-on-call 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year to answer any questions you may have after your procedure.

From then on, you will have all the reassurance that comes with our “Open Door” aftercare policy. It’s simple: once you have been treated at The Avoca Clinic, our door will always be open to you, anytime you need us. So, when we promise to take care of you before, during and after your procedure, we really mean it.

Your procedure can be carried out in one of four locations: Avoca Clinic, St Vincent’s Private Hospital, The Hermitage Clinic or The Bon Secours Hospital in Glasnevin. The choice is yours and the surgery requires one overnight stay.

Our payment options include tailor-made payment plans designed to suit your needs.

It’s simple: once you have been treated at The Avoca Clinic, our door will always be open to you, anytime you need us.
