Breast Uplift

Enhance Your Confidence with Breast Uplift Surgery by Dr. Jamil Al Jamali

A Breast Uplift, or Mastopexy, is a transformative cosmetic procedure designed to remove excess skin and reshape your breasts, rejuvenating your body contour and confidence.

What Happens During Breast Uplift Surgery (Mastopexy)?

Performed under general anaesthetic, a breast uplift surgery typically takes about one-and-a-half hours. Dr. Jamil Al Jamali carefully evaluates your unique needs and recommends one of the three incision types:

  1. Incision around the areola (dark area around the nipple)
  2. Incision around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease
  3. Incision around the areola, vertically down to the breast crease, and horizontally along the breast crease

Post incision, your surgeon eliminates excess skin, reshapes the breast tissue, and repositions your nipple for an uplifted look.

Post-Operative Care & Recovery

After surgery, you can expect dressings on the incisions and possibly temporary drainage tubes in your breasts. You might need to wear a special bra for breast support and may require pain relief medication.

Coming Home After Surgery

Usually, a one to two-day hospital stay is expected, post which you would need someone to drive you home. Initially, your breasts may appear swollen and discoloured, but incision lines fade gradually, and the uplift results improve over six months.

You should avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for six weeks following the surgery. Always consult with Dr. Jamil Al Jamali about your return to work and normal activities.

Recovery Timeline

Recovery from Mastopexy varies for each patient. Here’s a general timeline:

  • Day 1-7: Some discomfort may persist which can be managed with mild painkillers.
  • Week 2: Gradual increase in activity, non-dissolvable stitches removed, possible return to work.
  • 4-6 weeks: No need for a night bra, increase in daily activities.
  • 6-9 months: Scars begin to soften and fade, improvement in nipple sensation, results become more apparent.

Possible Complications

While complications are rare, potential risks include swelling, numbness, persistent pain, stiff shoulder, change in breast and nipple sensation, cosmetic problems, or reduced ability to breastfeed. Always discuss any concerns with Dr. Jamil Al Jamali.
