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.

"I had a breast lift with Dr. Ahmed 1 week ago and the difference is night and day!!!! It was a difficult procedure based on what other surgeons said but Dr. Ahmed gave me a very detailed description of what he was going to do, what expectations I should have, recovery and post op care. He eased all of my concerns and I felt very confident in choosing him because of his wealth of knowledge and expertise. I am now at home beyond happyyyyy and healing!

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.
