What is a Breast Lift?
A surgical breast lift is a popular body contouring treatment that reshapes the breasts by trimming away loose skin and surgically tightening the existing tissue to create a firmer, younger appearance. This body contouring surgery is reserved for women who have lost breast fullness and shape and who have breast sag due to breastfeeding, weight loss, aging, or gravity. Board-certified plastic surgeon and hand surgeon Dr. Omar Ahmed offers this cosmetic breast surgery at Omar Ahmed, M.D. By integrating the most state-of-the-art methods, Dr. Ahmed can choose the appropriate technique according to the level of sag present, as well as the desired aesthetic goal. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Ahmed, contact our team in Pasadena, CA.
Should I Have a Breast Lift?
You may visit Omar Ahmed, M.D. wanting fuller breasts with breast implants; however, after a private assessment, you may discover that a breast lift is better. The reason is due to the severity of sagging that is present. In most cases, breasts and nipples that point down need a lift to address skin looseness and raise the breasts to a higher position. If your nipples point downward and your breasts sag significantly below the crease line, a cosmetic lift can dramatically help their appearance. If you are contemplating a breast lift, you need to be physically healthy and at a good weight.
"Dr.Ahmed got skills!! I could not be happier with the results of my tummy tuck and lipo. He gave me back my pre baby body, and then some! I went on 5 consultations prior to him. A few minutes into my consultation with Dr.Ahmed I knew he was the one. He is honest, and didn’t try to sell me up on procedures like other plastic surgeons I saw previously. He listened and answered my questions patiently and explained in great detail what my procedure would be like. No one else took that kind of time. Surgery day was calm and his staff is super friendly and caring. After surgery he was always available to answer my questions and making appointments with his staff was easy and they worked with my crazy schedule every time. Dr.Ahmed has changed my life and I am forever grateful. I recommend him to everyone I know."- P. / Healthgrades / Sep 14, 2020
"Dr. Omar Ahmed is a highly skilled and talented surgeon. He is honest, down to earth, and his bedside manner is excellent. I had a tummy tuck, 360 lipo and a BBL. It was a transformation beyond my expectations. I am extremely happy with the results, and recommended him to anyone and everyone I know who wants cosmetic surgery. I will be returning to him for a breast augmentation in 6 months. Thanks Doc, you changed my life!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Aug 05, 2020
"Dr. Ahmed is extremely kind and very informative. He's considerate and always attentive to my mom's needs and concerns. My mom has had several surgeries and had no complications whatsoever. I appreciate his direct approach and his willingness to answer all my questions. My mom says she always feels safe with him. Highly recommend him and his staff. His assistant Angelina is a delight to work with. We wish you all the best, Robin Appleby and Barbara Curry."- R.A. / Google / Sep 08, 2019
"In February 2018, I tumbled down the stairs of my office building. I sustained a four-inch gash in my head that bled profusely. I was sent to Methodist Hospital in Arcadia. They called Dr Ahmed to stitch up my head. My Blue Shield PPO did not want to pay his bill of $7,000, which I thought was very reasonable, given the very skillful job he did, but they paid the ER Doctor’s $5,000 bill. Dr Ahmed was the only doctor that I saw that day, despite a bad concussion."- J.S. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2019
How We Perform a Breast Lift
A breast lift usually takes two hours or more and is performed using general anesthesia. The duration of this procedure depends on the severity of breast size and sagging. The method used for cosmetic breast lift surgery typically falls under two categories — the technique is defined by the location and type of the incision. The incision is completed first, and any loose, unhealthy skin is excised along with undesired fat and tissue. The skin is then tightened and the breasts are positioned higher and lifted so they look healthy and younger. In most situations, the size of the areola is reconstructed and reduced to match the new shape of the breast.
What To Expect After Breast Lift
The overall recovery period for any type of breast lift is more extensive than breast augmentation. After surgery, you will wear a medical compression bra to reduce swelling. A thin tube will also be placed near the location of the incision to help with excess fluid leakage that can sometimes occur after mastopexy treatment. After surgery, the swelling will diminish within a few days. Our office will provide specific home treatment care instructions to assist in your healing process. Results following a surgical breast lift appear after a few weeks as your newly shaped breasts take their higher position on your chest. Overall, your breasts should feel and appear perkier and natural.
