Breast uplift surgery: what to expect at Spire Dunedin

Spire Dunedin is a well-established private hospital and we take pride in delivering a high standard of care to our patients in Reading and the surrounding Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire areas. We have a choice of cosmetic surgeons who are experienced in breast uplift techniques to reshape breasts without altering their size.

There are a range of techniques available which involve repositioning of the nipple and available breast tissue. An implant may be recommended to restore volume to the upper part of the breast and it could also be a good opportunity to correct any asymmetry in the breast tissue.

Preparing for breast uplift surgery at Spire Dunedin

Getting here

Spire Dunedin Hospital is conveniently situated close to the heart of Reading, on the A4 Bath Road. We’re a short walk from Reading West station and a 10 minute taxi ride from Reading mainline station, with direct trains to and from London. We also have free on-site parking available for you and your visitors.

Your consultations

Once you’ve made an enquiry, we can arrange for you to meet with one of our cosmetic surgeons in a private consultation room – usually within a few days. There’ll be a chance to discuss your reasons for having treatment, as well as your medical history. Your consultant will explain what will happen during the procedure, including the type of anaesthetic you'll have. They may also need you to have a pre-operative assessment.

You can also find out more about:

  • The risks and complications
  • Any tests you may need to have before surgery
  • How the medical team will support your recovery and aftercare

Your consultant will explain that there’s no pressure to make any decisions during the appointment. Even if you’re confident you want to go ahead, there’s plenty of time to change your mind during the two week cooling-off period.

Breast uplift surgery: your procedure

When you arrive at Spire Dunedin, you’ll meet your surgical team and anaesthetist before your operation. You’ll have a general anaesthetic for the procedure, which means you’ll be asleep throughout.

The operation usually takes between one and three hours. It involves the surgeon making incisions in order to lift and reshape your breasts. They’ll use the techniques you agreed during your consultation.

Because of the length of surgery, you'll have to stay overnight, but you'll have your own comfortable en-suite room that provides all the home comforts you need, including:

  • En-suite bathroom
  • Window
  • Television
  • Guest seating

Breast uplift surgery: your recovery

After surgery, you’ll probably feel some pain or discomfort – our nursing team will give you painkillers to help you with this. You'll also be given a course of post-operative antibiotics. It's therefore important that you inform your surgical team if you have any allergies or issues with certain drugs.

Although everybody’s different and you should always follow your consultant’s advice, here’s a typical recovery timeline for breast uplift surgery:
