The Hospital Group has reported that the number of women having a breast lift has increased by 21% over the last year.

A breast lift, or mastopexy, as it is formally known, is a procedure that suits women whose breasts may be pendulous as a result of a relaxation of the ligaments due to weight loss, age or having children.

The actual size may be fine but the breasts have lost their volume and tone or the nipples may point downward. However, if extra volume is required then a breast uplift procedure may be combined with implants for the best overall result.

A spokesperson for The Hospital Group, said: “More and more woman, post pregnancy, have chosen to have a breast uplift to rebuild their confidence in their bodies. Particularly after breast feeding women lose volume in their breasts and want to get their femininity back.”

During this common plastic surgery procedure, the surgeon will carefully remove a small section of excess skin from each breast to lift the bust line. The result will give the patient's bust a much more youthful appearance. It is often combined with the insertion of breast implants in patients who have lost volume in their breasts as a result of age, weight loss or breast feeding.
