Breast lift is a surgical procedure done by a plastic surgeon to lift the sagging breast. During the surgery, excess skin is excised and breast glandular tissue is modified to raise the breast position.

Breast lift is advised if the breast is sagging and the nipples point downwards. Breast lift surgery boost your self-confidence and enhance your figure.

Causes of Breast sagging

  • Ageing– As one gets older the breast loses elasticity and firmness leading to ptosis of breast.
  • Pregnancy– During pregnancy there is stretching of the supporting ligaments of the breast as the breast gets fuller.
  • This stretching contributes to sagging of breast after pregnancy, whether or not you have breast fed.
  • Gravity– Over the years, effect of gravity contributes to sagging of breast.
  • Weight Fluctuations– Major changes in your weight can lead to stretching of breast skin and loss of skin elasticity.
  • Hormonal Imbalance– Due to unavoidable and unpredictable changes in the levels of estrogens and progesterone, can lead to undue enlargement and sagging in certain females.

The Breast lift surgery procedure

It is done under general anesthesia administered by our certified anesthetist.

Dr Gawri will make incisions

  • around the areola and
  • extending vertically downwards from areola to the breast crease. ( Lollipop Incision ).

The glandular tissue inside breast will be dissected and readjusted, to lift breasts to higher position and to reshape the breasts.

  • the excess breast skin is excised,
  • the size of areola is reduced and
  • the nipples and areola are shifted to higher position.

In the end the doctor will bring the breast skin together and close the lollipop incision with stiches or skin adhesives.

She will rest for few hours in a private room and can go home on the same evening.

  • Immediately after the Breast Lift surgery, the breast will be covered with a dressing and you may feel pain and soreness in the breasts. The pain is relieved by taking analgesic tablets and you can do all your normal activities from the next day only.
  • The breast will be swollen and bruised for about 1-2 weeks.
  • Your nipple- areola and lower breast skin may be numb but the numbness will recover over next few weeks.

  • Infection and hematoma Hematoma formation and infection are rare.
  • Bruising – Bruising if any will be resolved in 1-2 weeks.
  • Scarring There is a vertical scar from the areola down to the breast crease. This scar is usually hidden under the lower part of the breasts and it gradually improves over one year. In few cases, due to poor healing tendency of the skin, the scar can hypertrophy and become wide.
  • Numbness There can be a temporary numbness of breast skin and nipple- areola area, which typically recovers in most cases, over several weeks. Asymmetry in the shape or size of the breast This could be due to preexisting asymmetry or as a result of unpredictable changes during healing process.
  • Decreased breast feeding Breast feeding is possible after a breast lift surgery but there is decreased milk production.
  • Adverse reaction to anesthesia Like any major surgery, there is a risk of adverse reaction to anesthesia.


You can see the immediate change in the size and shape of your breast. The whole breast and areola are lifted to a higher position. The result is very satisfying and long lasting.

Although the shape will continue to change over next few months. Initially, the scar will be red and raised but it will become white and thin over a year. The scar is in the lower part of the breast and can be covered by bras.
