    Breast Lift Ipswich, Suffolk

    Opting for a breast lift in Ipswich, Suffolk, is a way to give your breasts a more youthful appearance by removing excess skin and reshaping the breasts. As a result, your breasts feel firmer and look more ‘lifted’, as the name suggests.

    A breast lift is different from a breast augmentation, as it doesn’t involve implants or increase the fullness of your breasts. A breast lift in Ipswich, Suffolk is most effective for those with smaller breasts, as larger breasts are heavier and can sag again over time. If you’re aiming to alter the size, you can have a combined lift and augmentation or reduction procedure to achieve your desired results.

    What Can I Expect From a Breast Lift?

    A breast lift in Ipswich, Suffolk, is usually performed under general anaesthetic and takes around 2-3 hours. There are various ways to perform a breast lift, depending on your desired results and the shape of your breasts.

    In general, the breast lift procedure involves the removal of excess skin and the reshaping of breast tissue. The nipples are then repositioned to suit your new shape before the incisions are closed with stitches. As with all surgery, you will have some scarring, but our expert surgeons are skilled at minimising their appearance.

    Boob Uplift

    There are many reasons for choosing to undergo a breast uplift in Ipswich, Suffolk. We often see patients who are unhappy with how their breasts look, often due to the following:

    • Downward-pointing nipples. While it’s perfectly normal to have nipples that point downwards, some people would rather change this to boost their self-confidence.
    • Weight changes.   Fluctuating weight can cause the skin around the breasts to stretch and shrink, reducing the elasticity and giving the appearance of sagging.
    • Pregnancy and breastfeeding. The supportive ligaments stretch as breasts get fuller and heavier during pregnancy. This can lead to sagging breasts whether or not you choose to breastfeed, although breastfeeding can stretch the ligaments further.
    • Gravity.  The ligaments stretch over time, so breasts can start to sag as you age.

    Whatever your reasons for wanting a breast uplift in Ipswich, Suffolk, the team at Suffolk Breast Practice offers a non-judgemental and empathetic service from the moment you get in touch to the end of your recovery.

    • What is a Breast Lift?

      Also known as a Mastopexy, a breast lift is a cosmetic procedure that aims to raise sagging breasts. It’s done through modifying the size, contour and elevation of the breasts. A breast lift removes excess skin and tightens the tissue. The procedure is popular as it achieves a more youthful breast appearance.

    • What Should I Expect After a Breast Lift?

      Following a breast lift, you should expect to see swelling and bruising for around two weeks and numbness can last for a few months. Additionally, it’s likely that you’ll experience pain and soreness around your incisions. The incisions will also remain red or pink for a few months.

    • What are the different types of breast lift procedures?

      There are multiple different breast lift procedures, the most popular being anchor lifts, lollipop lifts, and donut lifts. An anchor lift is an incision around the areola and around the breast crease. Whereas, a lollipop lift is an incision around the areola and down. Lastly, a donut lift is an incision only around the areola.

    • Can a breast lift be combined with other procedures?

      Yes, a breast lift can be combined with a number of procedures and can be an integral part of breast reductions, augmentation, and asymmetry.

    • What is the recovery time for a breast lift?

      A breast lift typically takes six weeks to recover from. For two weeks, we recommend avoiding sexual activities, difficult tasks, and work. You may also need to wear a postoperative bra for four weeks.
