Preparing for breast uplift surgery at Spire Murrayfield Wirral

Getting here

We're situated close to the M53, and you can also reach us by taking the train to Birkenhead Hamilton Square station, which is a 15 minute taxi ride away.

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

Some people can return home on the same day as their surgery, depending on the time of day you have your operation. If you need to stay overnight, you’ll have your own private en-suite room. All of our rooms have the comforts and conveniences you’d expect at home, including:

  • TV
  • En-suite
  • Window
  • Armchair

On the day of your operation, you’ll meet your anaesthetist and the surgical team who’ll be involved.

Before the procedure, you’ll be given a general anaesthetic, so you’ll be asleep. The operation should take between one to three hours.

Your surgeon will make cuts (incisions) to lift and reshape your breasts. They’ll use the technique you agreed during your consultation.
