About Breast Uplift in London
What does it mean to uplift the breasts surgically? In short, a breast uplift is a procedure that helps to improve the appearance of the breasts; this is done by removing excess skin and tissue, and repositioning the breasts. A breast uplift can help to improve the overall shape of the breasts, by repositioning the underlying tissue for rounder, firmer breasts. In addition to lifting the entire breast mound and restoring fullness to the upper portion of the breasts, it also repositions the nipple-areolar complex to a higher position on the breast.
There are a number of reasons why women may choose to undergo a breast uplift. For some, it may be due to the effects of gravity and aging, or changes that occur after pregnancy and breastfeeding, which can cause the breasts to sag. Others may have lost a significant amount of weight, which can also lead to drooping breasts. In other cases, some women are simply be unhappy with the natural shape of their breasts. Whatever the reason, a breast uplift can help to improve your confidence, and in turn, your life!
When it comes to breast uplifts, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First of all, you need to understand that every woman is unique. You may be inspired to undergo this procedure after seeing a pair of breasts that you covet. Dr Frati can use these as a guide and has a proven track record of stunning results, however there are limitations to what this surgery can accomplish, and your breasts will remain uniquely yours.

While a breast uplift can improve the current appearance of your breasts, it can’t stop the clock, or biology.
That being said, a breast uplift can still offer a meaningful transformation to many women. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your breasts, consult with Dr Frati to learn more about your options.

- The size, shape, and orientation of your areolas
- The elasticity of your skin
All of these factors will also play a significant role in determining the final outcome of your breast uplift surgery.

Smoking and Surgery Do Not Mix
Smokers are at an increased risk for complications after surgery, so it is important that you quit smoking before your procedure. Smoking is dangerous because it decreases the oxygen in your blood, which can slow down healing and increase the risk of infection. 
If you are a smoker, you will need Dr Frati will provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare for your surgery, so be sure to follow his instructions carefully.
The Breast Uplift Procedure
Over the years, Dr Frati has performed countless breast uplift procedures, so you can rest assured that you are in good hands. The procedure itself is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes a little over two hours to complete.
During the procedure, Dr Frati will make incisions in strategic locations around the breasts, allowing him to access the underlying breast tissue. The specific incision pattern that he utilizes will depend on the degree of ptosis, or sagging that you are experiencing, the size of your breasts, and the desired outcome. Most incisions include one that encircles the areola, which allows the nipple-areolar complex to be repositioned higher on the breast mound, and the size of the areola to be altered, if desired. An additional incision may be made that travels from the bottom of the areola to the crease underneath the breast, as with the lollipop incision. This allows him access in order to reposition the breasts and remove any excess skin and tissue. Finally, he will close the incisions and apply a compression garment.
Because Dr Frati understands that the resulting scars can negatively affect patient satisfaction , he places incisions in such a way that they are hidden by the natural contours of the breasts; this helps to ensure that any scarring is as discreet as possible.
What to Expect After Breast Uplift Surgery
After your surgery, you will be taken to a recovery room where you will be closely monitored. Once you are awake and alert, you will be able to go home with a friend or family member.
You should expect to experience some pain and discomfort after surgery, but this can be managed with medication. You will also have some swelling and bruising, which will subside over the course of a few weeks.
It is important to take it easy for the first few days after surgery and to avoid any strenuous activity. You should also avoid lifting anything heavy for at least six weeks. You should sleep with your head elevated to diminish swelling.
Dr Frati will see you for follow-up appointments after surgery to check on your progress. He will then see you periodically over the next few months to ensure that you are healing well.
The Results of Your Breast Uplift
The results of your breast uplift will be immediately visible, but it will take some time for the swelling to subside and for the incisions to heal and scars to fade. Over the course of the next few months, you will see your final results.
Most women are extremely happy with the results of their breast uplift. Not only do they have a more youthful, perkier appearance, but they also feel more confident and self-assured.
