I'm considering having breast uplift surgery
Has anyone got any advise based on their experience?
Has anyone regretted having breast uplift surgery?
What about scars, and lost sensation in nipples?

I had it done 2 years ago and am so glad I did. I agonised for a few years before committing to it.

Scars are visible if you look but don't bother me. Worth it imo. No loss of nipple sensation for me

thanks. glad to hear it's been a good thing for you. I've been agonising for years too.

Hackney how much did you pay? And was the recovery time very tough or long?

I had an uplift and small implants about 18 months ago and it's the best thing I've ever done for my self confidence. My advice would be to make sure you go for a surgeon who specialises in the type of results you are after.. for instance my surgeon was very particular about the "natural" look, which was perfect for me and to be honest if you didn't see the scars you could think I'd never had surgery and that I'd just been genetically blessed!

I have lost a bit of sensation on the skin below my nipples, on the actual boob, but nipples all working and feeling as normal. I got lucky with the scarring as I only had the 'lollipop' scar rather than the anchor meaning I didn't have a wound on the underneath.. helping with heeling.

I had mine done with MYA in London and they have a great forum on their website to talk to people pre and post op with photos etc even if you're not going through that clinic.

Hope that helps!
