Breast Lift

Dr Sukkar has a variety of techniques to lift and rejuvenate your breasts. He will pick the method that will optimize your result and give your new breasts the best shape possible.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?

  • Those with loose breast skin that has lost its elasticity and begun to sag.
  • Patients whose nipples have descended below the level of the breast crease.
  • Individuals who have lost volume in their breasts.
  • Those wishing to decrease the size of large nipples and areolae.
  • Patients interested in achieving a more youthful breast contour.

The Procedure

  • Breast lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes about three hours to complete.
  • Incision placement will depend on the breast size and shape. They are typically placed either around the areola or in the breast crease.
  • Breast tissue is examined to ensure no abnormalities exist.
  • Excess skin is removed so the breast can be lifted to a more youthful position.
  • The nipples are repositioned to a higher level, and their diameter can be reduced.
  • Should increased volume be desired in addition to the lift, breast implants can be inserted at this time.
  • A surgical bra will be applied upon completion of the surgery, with no drains being necessary.

The Recovery After a Breast Lift

  • Patients can return home after several hours.
  • Showering is allowed two days following surgery.
  • Pain is mild for the first couple of days before it disappears and can be controlled with oral medication.
  • Mild to moderate swelling is normal for the first week and will gradually fade.
  • If bruising occurs, it is typically very mild.
  • Breast shape may appear square for the first three weeks but will soon relax to a more natural, round position.
  • Patients can resume most activities within the first week and should be able to return to their normal routine by three weeks.
  • Most stitches will dissolve, and only a few will need removal.
  • Typically, patients require five to seven days off work.

The Result from a Breast Lift

  • Elevated breasts that appear more full and shapely.
  • Natural-looking outcome that continues to improve with healing.
  • Rejuvenated breast shape that settles into its new position over the course of three to six months.
