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.

My whole experience was fantastic from start to finish and I am extremely happy with my results. If I had any questions I also got a satisfactory answer and quickly. I would recommend Mr Banwell to anyone who was interested, and I would and probably will be back!

I went to see Mr Banwell to get reassurance about the moles and blemishes which have been steadily growing since I was a young adult. 30 years ago we were not aware of the dangers of the sun and burning on holiday way an annual ritual. Thankfully we are all now aware that the sun damage can cause skin cancer and the changes in my moles mean I have a precautionary approach, particularly as older family members have had tumours removed. Paul knows exactly what he was looking for and studied each and every mole methodically. The two he highlighted for treatment were two of the least innocuous (in my opinion) which surprised me. Clearly to the trained eye they needed removal. I have since had an excision of one and due to have photo dynamic therapy treatment for the small red mark on my nose later this year. Without seeing Paul, this minor irritation would have been left and could possibly have created problems later in life. I advocate regular checks for anyone with moles and skin blemishes. The technology now is so impressive and it makes absolutely sense to take full advantage of Paul’s expertise.

Mr Banwell explained the details of my procedures in a professional and sensitive manner. He took the time to put me at ease and answer all my questions in a way that I could understand. Each step of my treatment from the initial consultation through to its conclusion was supported by professional who with their support enables me to have an extremely smooth journey through my procedures. For the first time in my adult life I am happy in my own skin. I would recommend Mr Banwell to anyone who has been thinking of cosmetic surgery in a heartbeat. Through his skill and understanding of the female body, he carries out his profession with the utmost care and consideration.

Susan G.

I felt upon meeting Mr Banwell that I was really comfortable dealing with him. He put me at ease with his friendly and professional approach. My overall experience was excellent, I can’t praise it enough. Mr Banwell was so patient with all my questions, he explained everything clearly, he is so friendly as well as professional and his admin team back up his service perfectly. You all turned a daunting experience in to a breeze. I would recommend you to everyone.

Felicity C.

Procedure was quick, pain fee and I was made to feel at ease. I would highly recommend Mr Banwell, he provided an honest opinion of the result and all the options. I barely have a scar to speak of! Great result.

Claire H.

I am writing to let you know that I was very pleased with the recent surgery to remove several moles on my face, neck and back. The whole process was carried out very efficiently.  The mole on my face has almost completely disappeared already.  The post-operative information was most helpful, although the leaflet I was given varied slightly from your verbal instructions. However, you accurately told me what to expect.  I have no hesitation in recommending your work to other people.  The on site staff were all friendly and helpful throughout.
