Women come to see us enquiring about breast reshaping. They may have had children and their breasts have lost the shape they used to have. They do not need implants and the best treatment in these cases may be a breast lift, or “mastopexy”.

This procedure aims to reshape breasts which have sagged or have become “droopy”. Breast tissue, like all tissues in the body, is subject to the forces of gravity. It is measured depending on how low the nipple has descended. This droop is known as ‘breast ptosis’.

Breast ptosis is part of the normal ageing process, but can be exacerbated if the skin of the breast is stretched and then the stretching force is removed.

This commonly occurs after weight loss or following childbirth when the breasts become swollen. The procedure involves removal of skin and mobilisation of the gland to lift the breast. During the procedure, the nipple is lifted to a higher position and the width of the breast is narrowed to create a better shaped breast.

It is important to be aware that scars will be inevitable and the extent of the scarring depends on the amount of tightening that is required.

There is always a scar around the nipple, and this may be the only scar (the Benelli Lift). However, it is usually necessary to also have a scar running down from the nipple to the chest wall (this is known as a lollipop scar) and there may also be one along the inframammary fold (the fold in which the wire of a bra sits) in a similar pattern to that after breast reduction (this is an inverted-T or anchor scar).

The scars are red and obvious for the first 3 months but usually fade fully within 6-18 months.
