Breast enlargement and uplift overview

What is a breast enlargement and uplift?

This procedure is a popular cosmetic surgery in the UK. Firstly, it involves increasing the size of the breasts. In addition, it involves lifting the breasts and improving their shape. While it is possible to perform a breast uplift and a breast enlargement as two separate surgeries, your surgeon may recommend that you combine the two. This breast enlargement and uplift overview aims to give you a better idea of what the procedure involves and what it can achieve.

What can a breast enlargement and uplift achieve?

The goal of this surgery is to create firmer, fuller, more youthful looking breasts. To create the breasts you desire, your BAAPS/BAPRAS surgeon will remove any excess skin you may have on your breasts. After, they will then reshape your breast tissue. They may need to re-position your nipple and areola (the area of skin around your nipple). In addition, they may also need to alter the size and/or shape of your areola. Lastly, they may use implants to enlarge your breasts. All of these changes aim to enhance your breasts and achieve the goals that you have.
You may consider this procedure if you:

  • Are currently unhappy with the appearance of your breasts.
  • Would describe your breasts as droopy or shrunken in appearance.
  • Feel that weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding or ageing has negatively affected your breasts.
  • Feel self-conscious about your breasts.
  • Would like to achieve a fuller, firmer, more youthful looking breasts.


BAAPS/BAPRAS feature a lot on our website. So who are they? The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and The British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) are the two main plastic surgery societies in the UK.
At Medbelle, we choose to only work with surgeons who are members of either BAAPS/BAPRAS. This is because we want you to achieve the best results possible from your procedure. BAAPS and BAPRAS ensure their members are highly qualified and skilled in all the latest surgical techniques by organizing regular training programmes. Consequently, we feel this inspires confidence in the abilities of their surgeons.
In summary, we advise that you take your time to choose a BAAPS/BAPRAS surgeon that you feel understands your personal goals for your procedure. Furthermore, it is important that you feel you can trust your surgeon and believe that he or she can deliver the results that you desire.
