What is a Breast Lift?
A breast uplift - or breast mastopexy - is a great way to raise and re-shape your breasts. After a breast uplift, you can expect to have a rejuvenated and more perked appearance to your breast and have a more perked appearance to your breasts. You may be considering a breast uplift post-pregnancy or post-weight loss or as a result of the general force for gravity on your breasts. Many breast uplift patients at River Medical express their delight at being able to wear backless dresses or regaining the confidence to go without a bra after their surgery.
The operation involves the surgeon removing the excess skin from around the breast creating a much more pert breast. Small incisions around the breast are also made to allow the nipple and areola to sit higher on the breast, giving it a much more youthful appearance. The excess skin is then removed from below.
What results can I expect?
A more pert breast
Improved breast shape
You will be able to wear a strapless dress and not have to worry about having to wear a bra
