Breast Lift

There are various reasons that can cause loss of shape and firmness of the breast including:

  • Pregnancy

  • Aging process
  • Heredity

A breast lift raises the sagging breasts and gives them a more youthful-looking contour and also reduces the size of the darker skin around the nipple. Breast lift surgery is commonly performed in women between the ages of 35 to 50. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter the shape and firmness of the breasts.

Who are candidates for breast lift surgery?

  • sagging breasts
  • ost shape and volume
  • nipples face below the breast crease
  • descending areolas
  • stretched skin
  • Before the breast lift surgery, our aesthetic surgeons discuss in details the things that have to be considered before undergoing breast lift surgery.

They include following factors:

  • Size and shape of breasts
  • Repositioning of the nipples and areola
  • Areola reduction
  • Incision location
  • Breast implants

All these factors are considered and discussed with the patient to outline the surgery procedure required to fulfill the requirements of the patient. Normally the surgery takes around 1 to 3 hours and is performed on an outpatient basis.

Breast lift procedure

The aesthetic surgeon initiates the procedure by administering general anesthetic to numb the area. A small incision is made in the breast; the incision location depends on the size and shape of the breast

  • Around the areola ( darker part around the nipple)
  • Around the areola and vertically down
  • Around the areola and vertically and horizontally through the breast crease

Excess skin and tissues are removed from the breast to reshape and contour the breast. The nipples are repositioned to a height and the areola area is reduced by excising the darker skin. After the reshaping of breast and repositioning nipples and areola, the skin is stitched back together. Accumulation of fluids is prevented by inserting small tubes for draining the fluids from the wound.

After the surgery, the breast will ache and swell for few days. Wearing a compression garment helps ease the pain and reduce swelling in the area. The incisions in the breast may appear red or pink in color which fades over time.
