Breast Uplift (Breast Mastopexy) Case Studies

Restoring Perky Confidence – A Journey of Breast Uplift (Mastopexy)

Patient Profile:

A 43-year-old woman sought guidance regarding her dissatisfaction with the loss of youthful shape in her breasts. Concerned about their appearance once unsupported by a bra, she expressed a desire for a solution to restore their perky and youthful look. Initially considering breast implants to address the issue, she consulted with me to explore her options and determine the most suitable course of action. Upon assessment, it was evident that she did not require additional volume but rather a lift to rejuvenate the shape and contour of her breasts.


After thorough discussions and considering the client’s preferences, it was decided to proceed with a breast uplift (Mastopexy) procedure, incorporating auto-augmentation to achieve the desired outcome. This approach aimed to lift and reshape the breasts without the need for implants, focusing solely on enhancing their natural appearance. The surgery was performed meticulously to address the specific concerns and achieve optimal results.


Three months post-surgery, the client experienced a remarkable transformation in the appearance of her breasts. Delighted with the outcome, she regained confidence in her body’s contour and youthful appearance. The uplifted breasts boasted a rejuvenated and perky shape, eliminating the need for additional volume. This case demonstrates the effectiveness of breast uplift surgery in restoring a youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance, tailored to each client’s unique needs and preferences.

There is so much to talk about with regard to your breast uplift surgery. This section is all about FAQs, specific risks and other important information.

What to expect & FAQs.

Ok, so you now know what can be achieved with breast uplift or Mastopexy cosmetic surgery: But when would it be done? What will happen during the actual surgery itself? Will you be awake during surgery ? And how much will it cost?

If you like the size and shape  of your breast in a bra, but not without the bra – you could be a good candidate for a breast uplift.

There are many reasons that can cause the drooping of the breast.  Such as –

  • Age and the normal effects of gravity.
  • The natural effects of pregnancy and the swelling of the breasts with milk can cause the breast to naturally droop. These factors can cause the supportive fibrous bands within the breast to break down and the outer skin can stretch: Meaning that the breast tissue now isn’t sufficiently supported. The breasts inevitably shrink and the unsupported tissue settle into the stretched skin, whilst gravity pulls them down.
  • Weight loss or a weight that fluctuates up and down can result in the same thing.

The fibrous support of the breasts cannot be recreated. Instead during uplift surgery the breasts are reshaped by removing any excess skin and restoring the breast tissue to a more desirable shape. The nipples are then moved up to the best position on the breasts. Other options available during breast uplift surgery are; to minimise the size of the the darker skin around the nipple (areola); or add breast implants at the same time.

The aim of a breast uplift is to make the breasts firmer and higher. This can help with self confidence and many patients report that they are much happier socially. The best results can be achieved with small, saggy breasts.  Breasts of any size can still be lifted: However the results may not long lasting with heavy breasts.

Breast uplift surgery is for women with saggy breasts. Men can have breast surgery to reduce the size of their breasts if they have exceptionally large or saggy breasts. Click here to read about male breast surgery.

One alternative to having breast uplift surgery is simply to wear a well fitting padded bra. A breast enlargement (Augmentation)  is an option if the breast is not too droopy and the amount of loose skin is limited.  Alternatively if you feel that your breasts are too big for you as well as droopy, breast reduction surgery may be better suited. Sometimes, when Mr El Gawad performs breast uplift surgery in Manchester, Liverpool or nearby, he combines the different type of surgery procedures to achieve the desired outcome. Your surgeon will advise you of the best way to proceed to meet your individual needs.

If you do not like the shape of your breast when not in a bra, and you also want them bigger, then an uplift with implants may be something to consider.

If you are planning to have more children, it’s usually advised to delay any surgery until your family is complete. Breast uplift surgery will not interfere with the pregnancy and doesn’t normally affect breastfeeding: However the breast normally stretches during pregnancy and beyond, meaning the result achieved through surgery will be reduced.  It is usually advised to wait until 6 to 12 months after breastfeeding has stopped before having breast uplift surgery. This is to allow the breast to settle back into its original shape.

If you are looking to have a breast uplift in Liverpool, Manchester or nearby, you should have a consultation first: Ensure that this meeting is with the plastic surgeon who will perform your surgery.  During this important consultation, your surgeon should go through the steps involved in your chosen cosmetic surgery procedure: You should discuss what will happen before, during and after the breast uplift surgery, as well as explaining any pain you might experience. Be sure to ask any questions that you may have: Do not feel that you cannot approach a certain subject. In fact if you feel uneasy in asking certain questions then this maybe a sign that the surgeon you are with is not the right one to go ahead with surgery. You must feel completely at ease with your plastic surgeon and feel that you can ask anything.

Your surgeon will probably measure your breasts and assess their shape and the position of your nipples. Photographs may also be taken for your medical records. Before your surgery takes place expect your surgeon to mark the position of the intended surgical cuts on your breasts with a surgical pen.

It is vitally important to prepare for breast uplift surgery so that it is a success.  It is advised that you try to keep a constant weight, with a healthy diet and plenty of exercise.  If you are a smoker it its advised that you stop at least 6 weeks before your breast uplift surgery takes place. This is to reduce the chance of complications.

If having a Breast uplift in Manchester, Liverpool or one of our other Northwest hospitals, It is usually done under general anaesthesia. This means you will be totally asleep during the operation. Usually you will be asked to avoid food or drink for several hours before the operation takes place. However, it’s important to follow your anaesthetist’s advice that will be relevant to your individual case.

Several cuts will be made on your breasts. The exact number and position of the cuts will vary on the individual case. Some skin with then be removed from around the areola (the area around your nipple) and/or from under your breasts. Your breast will then be reshaped. Usually the surgeon will then re-position your nipples and may reduce the size of your areola to suit the new shape. If you are having a breast enlargement at the same time as an uplift, your surgeon will also insert a breast implant to help with the size and shape. When the operation is complete, your surgeon will close the cuts with stitches that will either have to be removed at a later date or that will dissolve. The final scar is usually an anchor shape. However Mr El Gawad, who has clinics in Manchester, Liverpool, Newton Le Willows and Bolton, also offers the lollypop and donut breast uplift technique.

If you are having a breast uplift in Liverpool, Manchester or nearby, usually you are able to go home the same day. This is done on an individual basis and also depends on the time of time that surgery occurs: Therefore it’s possible you may have to stay in hospital for one night.
You will be offered pain relief to help with any discomfort you have. Before you go home, your surgeon will give you advice about any required aftercare and what to do if you have problems. You will not be-able to drive therefore will need to arrange for someone to drive you home. Try to have a friend or relative stay with you for the first 24 hours after your operation.

To ensure everything is healing correctly, your surgeon will likely want to do a wound check a couple of weeks after the procedure.

Of course if you have any concerns in the meantime you must contact your surgeon or phone emergency medical care.

It does depend on the job that you do but you’ll probably need one to two weeks off work, after having breast uplift surgery. Be sure not to lift anything heavy for several weeks after your procedure.  Therefore if you are having a breast lift in Liverpool, Manchester, Newton Le Willows or Bolton; always follow your surgeon’s advice about when you can resume your usual activities and return to work.

It is advisable that you slowly try to build up the level of activity that you do. Most people are probably be able to do light activities after two weeks, and be back to your normal activities by six weeks. However this is only a guideline and can change depending on your individual needs:

Yes, in most cases your surgeon will recommend that you wear a special compression bra or firm dressing after your surgery. This will help to stop the weight of your breasts pulling on your healing wounds.

What happens to the stitches after you have had breast uplift surgery in Manchester, Liverpool, Newton Le Willows or Bolton? This depends on the type of stitches used. If your cosmetic surgeon used dissolvable stitches, these will dissolve in the weeks following your breast uplift surgery. If you have non-dissolvable stitches, you will be required to come back to visit your plastic surgeon to have them removed. This usually is 10 to 14 days after your surgery took place.

Ok so you have gone through with cosmetic surgery. You have had a breast uplift surgery in Manchester, Liverpool, or one of our state of the art hospitals in Bolton or Newton Le Willows. The important question is “when will you see the final results? after your plastic surgery procedure has been and gone?

You would see an immediate difference; however you should expect that it may take several months before your breasts finally settle completely into their new shape. Overcorrection is usually done to compensate for the expected effect of gravity to take place. Final result in shape and level usually takes place in 6 to 9 months after surgery.

The scarring will also be very red and noticeable at first but will gradually fade over the next 12 to 18 months. The sensation in your nipple may change, compared to before breast uplift surgery. This may change over time and could be more or less in sensitivity.

Specific risks.

Having a breast lift is a major decision. Cosmetic surgery can sometimes go wrong and the results may not be what you expected.The following points cover the specific risks associated with this procedure.

This usually happens in the early few hours to few days. This may require a visit back to theatre.

This usually happens in the first few days. This may need a course of antibiotics or in severe cases we might need to take the implants out.

This may need frequent dressings and would leave a stretched scar. The scar could be revised at a later stage.

This should improve on its own in few months time. However, it could be permanent.

This means that a localized part of breast tissue losses its blood supply and changes into liquid (Oil). This express itself by being a tender point in the breast. Overlying skin might be red and hot. It is a self-limiting process or might need aspiration by a syringe.

This means that the breast drops down by gravity/weight. That is normal within limits. However, if it is excessive, this could need further surgery.

Scarring may become red, lumpy or red. No guarantee about the quality of the scar. No control what so ever on the individual body healing.

This is bulging folds of skin at the end of the scar. This may require revision surgery to improve the appearance

Sutures may spontaneously surface to skin and needs removal.

Complete symmetry is very rare. I will do every effort to provide best results however; a degree of asymmetry is inevitable.

Some more exceptionally kind words from my beautiful breast uplift surgery clients…

“Mr El Gawad telephoned me the night before surgery to see if I was ok and if I had any questions and again just made me feel totally relaxed, even after surgery he texted me at home to see how I was doing and I wonder how many surgeons do that. The aftercare I would say is second to none, nothing is too much trouble, no matter how many times I texted Mr El Gawad he always answered my questions within minutes and was always happy to help. I think Mr El Gawad is an amazing surgeon who goes above and beyond his duties, he’s very kind and caring with a good sense of humour and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone and if I decide to have further treatment he would be my man.”
