What Is Breast Lift?

Breast lift, also referred to as mastopexy or breast uplift, is a surgical procedure specifically designed to elevate and reshape the breasts, resulting in a more youthful and perky appearance. As an accredited plastic surgeon based in London, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert brings her years of experience and meticulous attention to detail to deliver exceptional breast lift surgeries.

During a breast lift, the breast tissue is lifted, and the nipple is repositioned to create a more attractive breast contour. This procedure is particularly beneficial for individuals who have experienced breast sagging due to factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, genetic predisposition, or the natural aging process.

  4. Preparing for Recovery: The recovery period after a breast lift is crucial for achieving optimal results. Dr Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with personalised guidance on how to prepare for your recovery.

  • Which breast lift technique is most suitable for me, and why?
  • What results can I realistically expect from a breast lift?
  • How long is the recovery period, and what can I do to optimise my healing?
  • Can you show me before and after photos of previous patients who underwent a breast lift?
  • What are the potential long-term effects or complications associated with a breast lift?

What Kind of Anaesthesia is Used?

How Long Does Breast Lift Takes?

The duration of a breast lift procedure can vary depending on factors such as the extent of correction required and any additional procedures performed in combination. On average, breast lift surgery typically takes approximately two to three hours. Dr. Rotsaert will provide you with a more accurate estimate during your consultation, tailored to your specific needs.

How Long Before I Can Return to Normal Activities?

The recovery time following breast lift surgery varies from patient to patient. While each individual heals at their own pace, most patients can gradually resume normal activities within a week or two. However, it is crucial to avoid strenuous exercises and heavy lifting for a few weeks to allow your body sufficient time to heal properly.

Will I Have Scars After Breast Lift

Scarring is an inherent aspect of any surgical procedure, including breast lift surgery. Nevertheless, Dr. Rotsaert implements advanced surgical techniques and strategic incision placement to minimize scarring and achieve the most discreet outcome possible. Over time, the scars will naturally fade and become less noticeable. Comprehensive scar management instructions and treatments will be provided to promote optimal healing and minimise the visibility of scars.

Dr. V's View On Breast Lift

“A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a transformative procedure that addresses sagging breasts and restores their firmness and shape. During your consultation, I will take the time to understand your goals and expectations, allowing me to customise the surgical plan accordingly. My approach involves using advanced techniques to reshape and reposition the breasts, resulting in a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Yes, wearing a supportive garment, such as a surgical bra or compression garment, is typically recommended after breast lift surgery. This garment provides necessary support to the breasts, helps reduce swelling, and aids in the healing process. Your surgeon will provide specific instructions on when and how long you should wear the garment.

One year post surgery - The best decision going to Dr V! Having lost a significant amount of weight (50kg) at the age of 21 my breasts were very low from the loose skin. After my initial consultation where she helped me and talked through all the options I had and guided me with her expertise on what would look best from her professional opinion from feeling my skin and her experience. Especially as my skin was very difficult. Had a breast lift with implants put it, surgery went so smoothly and 1 year post op they are looking incredible. So thankful to Dr V and her team, as well as the nurses at the Welbeck Hospital. After the operation was getting constant check ups both in person and over the phone. Would recommend she made feel so comfortable and the has made me so confident in my body! Thank you for everything 🙂

Undergoing elective surgery was not something I rushed into. After extensive research I met with Dr Rotsaert, and knew I had met the right surgeon to carry out my procedure. Finally a surgeon who is professional, compassionate, and demonstrates expertise!!! My initial enquiry was well received by a friendly knowledgeable team who made the booking process easy. Dr Rotsaert created a relaxed environment for me at consultation, and listened to my concerns - I left feeling reassured and well informed with my personal treatment plan. The lovely nurses Amina and Alice helped prepare me for surgery and were extremely attentive (they were also at hand for my post operative care which was nice for continuity) When I arrived at hospital the experience and trust was confirmed as soon as I walked through the door to the moment I left. I was made to feel VIP and relaxed in the knowledge I was in safe hands. Post operatively went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. The only fault being my personal lack of patience to being fully recovered. 6 weeks after surgery I can honestly say I’m delighted with my results and as cliche as it sounds wish I had done it sooner. Dr Rotsaert and her team listened and guided me throughout. With their support and expertise they turned a nerve wracking decision of mine into one of best decisions I’ve made. Gold star service!
From the very first email I sent and my initial consultation with Dr V, all the way through to my surgery day and 6 week post operation appointment, I have been so happy with how I have been treated. Dr V always made me feel comfortable and at ease, and I trusted she understood exactly what I wanted. The results are even better than I could've imagined. I have a newfound love for my body and my confidence has increased tenfold, all thanks to her wonderful work. Definitely the best decision I have every made. I can't thank Dr V and her team enough. Highly recommend!

I’d highly recommend Dr V to anyone looking for a natural breast enhancement. She put me at ease straight away, no getting topless on Zoom, no 3D simulation, but a face to face initial consultation telling me exactly what was possible and making me touch and try several implants on. I also felt like she would take her time during the surgery instead of rushing it in 20-30 minutes which was important to me. The recovery was way easier than I expected and my results 2.5 months in are amazing, I got my breasts back which had “deflated” after having and breastfeeding my daughter and I really wanted that natural effect which I got with Motiva Joy implants and demi projection. The fact the post-op appointments are included is also a great touch.

Dr Veerle was everything I had hoped I would find in a surgeon. Having done a lot of my own research and prep over the course of a few years, she was able to answer all my questions in a way that reassured me she was extremely professional, fully knowledgable and skilled/experienced enough to offer the best result. She was also generous with her time where it mattered whilst being efficient in the process. There was absolutely no hint of an upsell or any encouragement to consider additional procedures from her side which I had encountered elsewhere and had put me off. Post-procedure she has also proven a dedicated surgeon and is happy to be involved in the evolving result and post-operative journey. Dr Veerle is the best!
