BREAST UPLIFT: Lift those Breasts Up! | Dubai | LCAS


Age, gravity, fluctuations in weight and decrease in elasticity can contribute to the lowering of the breasts over time. The amount of drooping will depend on the volume and elasticity of the breast tissues. 

Breast uplift surgery is an effective way to reshape the breasts making them look lifted, firmer and more youthful in appearance. This type of surgery is for patients who are experiencing moderate to severe ptosis (droopy) of the breasts and who are not planning to have more children. Although there are no risks associated with pregnancy or breastfeeding after breast uplift surgery, there is the possibility of the skin stretching again and will render the surgery ineffective.


The surgery is usually done under local anaesthesia with moderate sedation, but can also be under general anaesthesia. Moderate sedation is a drug-induced depression of consciousness wherein patients are able to respond to verbal commands either alone or accompanied by movement stimulation. Spontaneous breathing is observed in sedation unlike in general anaesthesia where the breathing ability is compromised thereby requiring airway assistance devices like intubation. The surgery will last approximately 3 to 3.5 hours and recovery in the clinic will take around 2 to 4 hours and can be longer depending on the amount of time for the patient to recover.


After the surgery, you will have an adhesive bandage dressing around the breasts which will act as a support as well as maintain the shape of the breasts. This adhesive bandage dressing will be removed in 4 days. A cotton, non-wired bra is worn for a period of 1 month. The stitches will be removed in a couple of weeks. The breasts will look pointy and high for the first few weeks but will eventually settle down and will look more natural.


Refrain from stretching the arms above shoulder length so as not to stretch the incisions. Sleeping on the back is required for a month. Strenuous exercise should be avoided until one month.


As with all surgeries, breast uplift surgery carries uncertain risks and complications. 

Scar formation is possible if you have history of keloid formation. Complications like infection, bleeding, and asymmetry of the breasts may happen. 

Breast uplift surgery is a good operation which can reduce and improve the appearance of droopy breasts.
