What is Mastopexy

Mastopexy is the plastic surgery procedure for raising sagging breasts (breast ptosis), by changing and modifying the size, contour and elevation of the breasts. It is also known as breast uplift surgery.

In medical terms, it is a surgical operation that cuts and removes excess tissues, overstretched suspensory ligaments, and transposes the nipple-areola complex higher upon the breast hemisphere. 

Mastopexy surgery techniques are also applied to reduction mammoplasty, which is the correction of oversized breasts (or breast reduction surgery).


Indications for Mastopexy

The following are the four most common reasons that clients seek mastopexy in London with cosmetic surgeon Paul Banwell:

  • Sagging breasts, which have fallen forward after breast-feeding, menopause or significant weight loss.
  • Post-explantation ptosis, which is the sagging of the inelastic skin envelopes, once emptied of the breast implants.
  • Congenital conditions such as tuberous breast deformity (constricted breast).
  • Post-mastectomy breast reconstruction.

Why undergo Mastopexy in London?

Many women undergo one of the many breast surgery procedures in order to enhance their appearance and improve their self-confidence. They turn to breasts uplift surgery,or mastopexy in London to reshape sagging breasts and increase firmness of naturally soft breasts.

Gravity is the most common cause of breast sagging, or ptosis. Here’s how it can impact the breasts of women in different age groups:

  • In a young woman with large breasts the sagging occurs because the volume and weight of the bust is disproportionate to body type, and because of the great elasticity of the thin, young skin envelope of each breast.
  • In middle-aged women, breast ptosis usually is caused by postpartum hormonal changes to the maternal body and because of the inelasticity of the skin envelope that is overstretched during breastfeeding.
  • In post-menopausal women, in addition to gravity, breast ptosis atrophy is aggravated by the inelasticity of overstretched, aged skin.

Surgical Techniques for Mastopexy (breast uplift) in London

Breast uplift techniques are known according to the number of scars they produce. Before your operation, Mr Banwell will help you decide the appropriate surgical technique that will achieve the best degree of breast-lift. The different degrees are:

  • Grade I: Mild breast ptosis or sagging, which involves breast implant augmentation, or with a periareolar skin resection (crescent lift) with or without breast augmentation.
  • Grade II: Moderate ptosis, which involves a circumareolar donut mastopexy technique.
  • Grade III: Severe ptosis, which involves circumvent and horizontal incisions of the Anchor mastopexy.

Anaesthetics for Mastopexy at our London clinic

Mastopexy surgery is performed under local or general anaesthetic, depending on the operation and patient. The full details of the procedure and subsequent recovery period will be thoroughly explained to you at our clinic. Local anaesthetic wears off after a few hours, and general anaesthesia can last for over 24 hours.


How long before daily activities may be resumed?

After-care post removal is an important stage of all procedures and treatment. Once treated, if you have only gone under local anaesthetic, you will be able to return to sedentary activity (eg an office job) a few days after. You should avoid all strenuous activity for a minimum of 2 weeks. 

After local anaesthetic you can usually drive the following day if you are careful.

All patients must strictly adhere to any aftercare advice post-treatment, regardless of the individual, in order to minimise risk.

From the welcome I got on my first visit to post-op consultations, the team were very friendly. Mr Banwell is undoubtedly the most professional and caring surgeon I could wish for. I have felt completely confident in his expertise, and am thrilled with the results. I would not hesitate – and indeed have – to recommend him to all my friends.

…the care I received was expert, professional and totally honest.

The care was excellent both pre and post operatively. During my stay at the hospital I knew exactly what to expect and when, which was most reassuring. The outcome is exactly as I’d have hoped. My eyes look less heavy and it’s as if they have more space to open! I’d never heard of the procedure before seeing Mr Banwell but I knew that something needed doing, and I’m absolutely delighted with the results.

Janet T.

I read about Mr Banwell on the internet and after speaking to him on the telephone, when he explained how he would help, I felt confident that I had found a solution. Mr Banwell gave my daughter a course of epiduo and this made an improvement quite quickly. He then suggested a course of Tetralysal and this has now completely transformed her skin. She is acne free.

You were very knowledgeable about every part of the procedure and that is why I chose you over any other surgeon/clinic. Nearly 5 years on and I am very pleased with the results of my operation and have had no problems and they look so natural and have built my confidence so much.

Sam M.

Mr Banwell provides an excellent service in pre-operation information, as well as total expertise and attention to detail in surgery. He was very informative and helpful after care.  I received excellent and sympathetic nursing care and anaesthetist. Mr Banwell has a very helpful practice manager and assistant.  My eyes have regained an ‘openness’ similar to my younger years. I no longer look tired.  I would highly recommend Mr Banwell to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.
