A breast lift with implants procedure is a popular solution for those who have experienced the negative effects of pregnancy, breastfeeding and ageing in the breast area or are just not happy with the size and volume of the breast. The procedure is performed with the aim of enlarging and creating a more preferable shape and placement for a woman’s breasts.
Patients who experience droopy breasts, breast asymmetry, or tuberous breasts will see a significant change in their body aesthetic thanks to the breast lift procedure, and can experience an improved sense of self-confidence from it.

Am I a suitable candidate for a breast lift with implants procedure?
If you are considering a breast lift using implants, there are some points you should first consider:
- Breast implants will not last a lifetime, and the ageing process will still affect the results of a breast lift, meaning further surgery may be required in the future
- Smokers have an increased risk of complications from any surgery
If you are in good physical shape with realistic expectations, this procedure is well-suited for you if a loss in the firmness or shape of your breasts is causing you distress. Pendulous breasts, specifically with nipples below the breast crease, can achieve significant improvement through the use of implants. Please note that your breast shape prior to surgery will have an effect on the outcome of the procedure.
