If you are self-conscious about your drooping breasts then why not contact Reshape and Restore for a breast uplift in Bristol?  

Hormonal changes, weight loss and breastfeeding can all cause changes in breast tissue leading to a flatter and more elongated shape. Breast uplift surgery, sometimes called a breast uplift mastopexy, can give a more youthful shape to the breast and restore the nipples to a more elevated position on the chest.

Cosmetic surgeons Mr Khan and Mr Chapman at Bristol’s Reshape & Restore clinic  are experts in breast surgery of all kinds and their expertise and experience will restore both your breasts and your self-esteem.


What happens during breast lift surgery in Bristol?

The aim of breast uplift surgery is to create a more aesthetically pleasing breast shape and position by removing excess breast skin and tissue and remodelling the remaining breast tissue. The techniques to be used during surgery will be discussed at your initial consultation at the Bristol clinic.

Your plastic surgeon will make an incision around the areola of the nipple and then another from the nipple to the crease under your breast. A further incision may be required along the crease of the breasts. The tissue will be remodelled through the incisions and stretched skin will be removed.

Your nipples may also be repositioned to suit the new shape and position of your rejuvenated breasts. Sometimes liposuction is used if breasts are very large and heavy.

Surgery will take place under general anaesthetic and require an overnight stay in hospital in Bristol.

What is breast augmentation mastopexy surgery?

If your breasts lack the sufficient volume to create a pleasing shape after an uplift, your plastic surgeon may suggest an augmentation mastopexy. This is a breast lift to remove excess skin with the addition of a breast implant to create a fuller shape.

Mr Khan or Mr Chapman will discuss this procedure with you at your initial consultation at their clinic in Bristol.

Breast Uplift

Recovery after your breast rejuvenation in Bristol

Your breasts will be sore, swollen and bruised for a few weeks after your breast uplift. Pain relief will be prescribed that will help with the discomfort.

Before you leave the hospital in Bristol you will be given advice about how to care for your breasts to promote the healing process and minimise scarring. You will need to wear a support garment for a few weeks to support your breasts.

It is essential that you take it easy for a while. Mr Khan and Mr Chapman advise all patients to take a couple of weeks off work and avoid vigorous activity for longer. Even dog walking may place a strain on your body.

Your recovery will be monitored during follow-up appointments and your plastic surgeon will advise you about returning to your normal activities.

Are there any risks to uplift surgery?

All surgery carries the risk of complications including swelling, bruising, tenderness, infection and bleeding. However, by choosing surgeons with the surgical expertise of the team at Reshape and Restore you are ensuring the best outcome for your surgery.

How soon will I see the results of my breast lift in Bristol?

Once the post-operative swelling and bruising has gone, the new shape of your rejuvenated breasts will be apparent. Your drooping breasts will have been replaced by breasts that are firmer, fuller, and in a higher, more natural position on your chest wall.

Most women find that their body confidence soars after surgery and that they enjoy the freedom to wear what they like without being self-conscious about their breasts.

Am I a good candidate for an uplift? 

If the appearance of your breasts concerns you and you are in good health then you are a good candidate for an uplift.

Mr Chapman and Mr Khan will assess your suitability at your initial consultation and take a full medical history to ensure that you are fit enough for surgery.

Which surgical techniques will be used during my breast lift procedure?

Mr Khan and Mr Chapman will discuss the best surgical procedure to achieve your aims during your first consultation.

They may suggest alternatives to a simple uplift including breast uplift surgery with implants or a straightforward breast enlargement.
