Breast Lift

Performed by Beirut’s top cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Elie Abdelhak, performs breast lift surgery to uplift the breasts by removing excess skin to restore a firmer, perkier, and more aesthetically pleasing shape to sagging and dropping breasts.

The breast lift does not only improve the patient’s appearance by restoring her youthful, feminine proportions, but also help bras and swimsuits fit more comfortably and attractively.

There are several techniques the surgeon could use, but generally the operation involves:

  • Moving your nipple to its new position – usually while it’s still attached to the blood supply.
  • Removing excess fat, glandular tissue and skin from your breasts.
  • Reshaping the remaining breast tissue.

The Day of Your Breast Lift

After consulting Dr. Elie, he will provide you with the needed information for your breast lift (a CBC test is recommended). The breast lift operation lasts 3 to 4 hours and is performed and is performed under general anesthesia with one night stay at clinic. At the first postoperative appointment, the sterile surgical dressings are removed and replaced with a supportive surgical bra. Patients are expected to wear this bra at all times for three weeks.

Recovery Time

While every patient is different, most women are able to return to work in one week, light exercise in three weeks, and resume strenuous activity after five weeks. Antibiotics and pain medicine are prescribed following the surgery. Patients are required to avoid sleeping on their stomachs for the first two weeks, and are advised to take sponge baths until the sutures are removed

Am I a candidate for breast lifting?

Good candidates for a breast lift are women who, for a variety of reasons such as gravity, aging, heredity, pregnancy, and breast feeding, have experienced a sagging of the breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts tend to elongate and lose their more youthful form.


How long will the results last?

Such surgery necessitates a very professional and experienced doctor to get the best results of the reshaping with less scars.The breast should not return to its preoperative droop for last 10-20 years provided you maintain your body weight and wear bras more often than not.
