Cosmetic Breast Surgery

Miss Hunter specialises in Breast Uplift, known as a Mastopexy

Breast uplift (Mastopexy)

Breast uplift surgery is a procedure which will remove loose skin from your breast and re-shape them. This lifts the breasts and makes them look more youthful.

Breast shape changes over time. It is common for breasts to become droopy after pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, or simply as we age. Many women speak to us wishing to restore the firmness of their breast shape.

Judith as a specialist breast surgeon is ideally equipped to help you achieve the breast shape you are looking for and will recommend the right procedure for you.

Breast uplift (mastopexy) – the procedure

Breast uplift or mastopexy involves lifting the nipple; it may only involve reshaping the breast not reducing the volume but tightening the skin around it. There is always a scar all around the nipple. Depending on the shape and size of your breast to start with and what you are hoping to achieve, there are often other scars; there may be a vertical scar from the lower edge of the nipple to the fold underneath the breast and a horizontal one in the fold itself. These make an ‘anchor’ shape or ‘inverted-T’ scar.

It may be that a breast uplift can be combined with another procedure to achieve the results you are looking for.

Miss Hunter enjoys meeting her potential patients and appreciates what a big decision surgery is, she offers consultations in her Central London or Chelsea clinics. Please contact is for more information.

Breast augmentation

Implants are used to enlarge your breasts and may create a subtle uplifted appearance too. Generally, small scars are placed in the fold under the breast to achieve this. Implants can be placed under the breast tissue only (sub glandular), under the chest muscle (sub muscular) or partially under the chest muscle (dual plane). This depends on your natural breast shape and your desired outcome; Miss Hunter will advise you which type she would recommend for you.
