Removing flabs and extra skin to give you a more rounded and attractive look


The breast Lift operation is a completely safe and simple surgery. It aims to remove excess or sagging skin and change the breast shape to make it tight and round, resize the areola or lift the nipples up by tightening the breast tissue.

Aesthetic medicine for Breast Lift has developed and included many methods used by doctors and plastic surgeons to conduct a breast lift operation. The doctor determines the best method according to the woman’s condition and desires, as well as the type of skin tissue she has.



Many women desire to get a tightened breast, but the candidates for Breast Lift operation are limited to the following list:

  1. Women with sagging breasts or skin appendages in the breast area.
  2. Women who had a significant weight loss, which resulted in breasts being sagged.
  3. Women suffer from nipples falling below the breast level.
  4. Frequent pregnancy, lactation, and changes in hormones lead to a change in breasts shape which results in recommendations to undergo a Breast Lift Operation.
  5. Cases of areola expansion. The areola is the dark halo that surrounds the nipples.

With aging, breasts become saggier, and breast shape changes completely, so a Breast Lift Operation is to be conducted.


Following the advice dictated by the doctor before the Breast Lift Operation is one of the most important factors that lead to a successful Breast Lift Operation. Such devices are as follow:

    1. Refrain from applying any type of moisturizing creams for at least two days before the Breast Lift Operation.
    2. Stop having stimulants of all sorts, such as caffeine or Arabic coffee, for at least two weeks before the Breast Lift Operation because they affect the anesthesia process and make it difficult to anesthetize a woman who drinks stimulants frequently.
    3. Avoid smoking entirely for a month before Breast Lift Operation because it narrows the veins and reduces the rate of oxygen in the blood.
    4. Stay away from having any type of blood thinners, such as alcohol and vitamin groups (because they contain vitamin E), for at least two weeks before the surgery to avoid bleeding during the surgery.
    5. Stop having any sort of medications that cause blood thinning, such as Aspirin.
    6. Make sure to have healthy and balanced food for at least two weeks before the Breast Lift Operation.


Adherence must be done to the advice and recommendations dictated by the doctor to the patient after the Breast Lift Operation in order to reach the best results, such as the following:

    1. Adhere to wear a supportive medical bra for six weeks after the Breast Lift Operation, especially after removing the bandages, for it helps speeding up the healing process.
    2. Refrain from itching or pressing on the breast area for a month after the Breast Lift Operation.
    3. Avoid any stressful physical exertion or exercise, and it is recommended to adhere to complete rest for at least two months.
    4. Avoid carrying heavy objects for four to six weeks after the operation.
    5. Ensure having a relatively stable weight and eating healthy and proper food by following some of the diets dictated by the doctor.
    6. Avoid exposure to harmful sunlight for a month after the surgery.
    7. Keep away from high temperatures for at least six weeks, also avoid a Turkish bath or sauna.


Breast Lift Operation is conducted through a few simple steps, which can be listed as follows:

First Stage: Conducting Clinical Examination

The doctor examines the patient’s breasts and determines the final shape desired from the Breast Lift Operation.

Second Stage: Conducting the Necessary Tests

Mammography is performed along with the necessary blood tests. These tests are to identify the rates of blood sugar and to make sure that the woman is free of diseases that hinder Breast Lift Operation.

Third Stage: Preparing the Patient

The medical staff prepares the patient. The doctor layouts the breast and determines the proper place where the nipple is going to be. The anesthesiologist then anesthetizes the patient with general anesthesia in order to avoid her feeling any pain at all.

Fourth Stage: Conducting the Breast Lift Operation

The plastic surgeon opens a small incision in the breast using one of the methods followed in Breast Lift Operation in order to remove excess skin and sagging. Then the bandages are placed on the breast.
