Risks of Breast Enlargement with Uplift

The risks associated with breast enlargement with uplift surgery include:

  • Scarring: The procedure involves incisions, which can result in visible scars, although experienced surgeons aim to minimise their appearance.
  • Infection: As with any surgery, there is a risk of infection although they are relatively rare.
  • Implant-Related Issues: Breast implants may have complications, such as rupture, leakage, or capsular contracture, which may require further surgical intervention.
  • Changes in Sensation: Some patients may experience temporary or permanent changes in breast or nipple sensation, including numbness or hypersensitivity.
  • Anaesthesia Risks: Like any surgical procedure, there are inherent risks associated with anaesthesia, which should be discussed with the surgical and anaesthetic team during the preoperative evaluation.

How is a Breast Enlargement with Uplift Performed?

Correcting Augmentation mastopexy is typically performed as follows:


Before the procedure, a consultation with a plastic surgeon is essential. The surgeon assesses the patient’s goals, determines implant size and type, and discusses potential risks. Pre-operative instructions are provided, including lifestyle and dietary modifications to prepare for surgery.


Under general anaesthetic, the surgeon makes incisions, places breast implants, and reshapes breast tissue. The combination of incisions typically includes inframammary, vertical, and/or horizontal incisions. The procedure takes a 2-3 hours, and the incisions are closed with sutures.


After the surgery, patients are monitored as they awaken from anaesthesia. Dressings and supportive garments are applied, and post-operative care instructions are provided, covering incision care, pain management, and activity restrictions.


Recovery involves downtime, with swelling and bruising that gradually subside. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities for six weeks, wear a support bra, and attend follow-up appointments to monitor healing and address concerns. Final results may take a few months to fully emerge as the breasts settle and scars fade.

If you still have some questions on breast lift with implants, below you can find our most frequently asked questions:

Breast tissue uplift and enlargement surgery can cause discomfort and pain, as it involves surgical alteration of the breast tissues. However, pain management measures, including medication and post-operative care, are typically in place to minimise discomfort. It’s important to follow your surgeon’s advice for recovery to manage any pain effectively.

Breast uplift and implant procedures are not covered by the NHS, as they are considered cosmetic surgeries, designed for aesthetic enhancement rather than medical necessity. However, in exceptional circumstances, such as for reconstructive purposes for breast cancer, the NHS might consider them.

A breast lift primarily repositions and reshapes the breasts, giving them a more youthful and lifted appearance, but it does not increase their size. If increased size is desired, this is typically achieved through implants or fat transfer in conjunction with the lift.

The duration of breast augmentation with uplift surgery varies, typically taking 2-3 hours to complete, depending on the complexity and specifics of the procedure. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, and the time frame includes preparation, the surgery itself, and initial post-operative recovery in the medical facility.
