What is Breast Lift Surgery or Mastopexy?
Breast Lift, commonly known as Mastopexy, is a procedure to fix the sagging breasts, giving it firmness and elevation by removing the excess skin.
This process is mostly performed on women undergoing weight fluctuations, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and gravity which are the factors that contribute to the problem. In case you want a significant change in size, the Breast Lift is performed in combination with Breast Augmentation to address the brief.
What do you need to consider before a Breast Lift?
When you decide to have a Breast Lift, you must ensure you have no pregnancy planned in the future. If there are any inclinations, it's best to delay it for later. Apart from women with large breasts, there are women who often tend to get saggy breasts again in some years, due to gravity and lifestyle choices. However, this is not an atypical case scenario for all individuals.
After reviewing your medical history, and weighing the pros and cons in the consultations, one-on-one sessions will be held between you and our doctors for post-op care and plans that may need to be enforced for the perfect outcome.
Reasons to Consider the Breast Lift in Dubai or Mastopexy
Breast Lift can become a consideration for many reasons, but here are some common ones:
With age and hormones, weight can shift significantly, and most of the time, after childbirth, you lose all the pregnancy weight. This can extend largely to saggy breasts.
During pregnancy, breasts muscles stretch, and mostly breasts become heavier. After pregnancy, it goes back to the pre-pregnancy size in most cases. The skin that has already stretched, doesn’t go back to its usual self; that’s why, the breasts tend to sag.
As time passes and age takes over, gravity also plays a role, and the breasts start to sag.
Asymmetrical or Awry
Sometimes, the breasts get longer or flatter, or the nipples lose the shape or fall below the creases. In some cases, one breast falls lower compared to others.
Often, the areola stretches, and goes out of proportion compared to the breast shape.

Incisions and scars
Since every case is unique, there are no set incision fields. However, the incision mostly falls around the areola and sometimes vertically down the areola towards the crease. While the scars are always kept to a minimum for patient care, the process includes incision which causes some scars to stay. But with the smart choice of clothing, these scars will be effortless to cover. In a post-operation consultation, the doctors will guide you through a step-by-step procedure on how to care for your scars, and with proper care, you will be able to reduce or lose them in the future.
