Breast Lift


Unfortunately, droopiness of the breast is a complaint many women have to deal this. For some, it is a problem they have always had to contend with, and others it is a legacy of pregnancy and motherhood. For most patients, age and time will stretch the supporting ligaments of the breast causing them to hang lower than in their youth


What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, Mastopexy, is a procedure that aims to change the shape, contour, and size of the breasts and nipples - it is principally done to correct saggy boobs. This typically occurs due to age, weight loss, and most commonly pregnancy.

The breast lift is performed as a general anesthetic, but does not involve an overnight stay. There are several ways to perform a lift. The goal of the lift is to place the nipple in an aesthetically ideal position and remove the wrinkled and sagging skin. The scars can either be around the nipple, in the shape of a lollipop or an anchor pattern. The choice of the scar is based upon the amount of lift necessary and area of skin to be excised. Most patients desire to want the least amount of scarring, but often this is not possible due to the limitations this would place on the final result

Who would benefit  from the procedure

Weight fluctuations cause the skin to stretch, and with changes analogous to pregnancy, it can often leave the breasts sagging. This category of patients is very well suited to boob lift.


  • Aging causes breast tissue to become thinner and lose its elasticity. It often leads to saggy boobs or skin being unable to support the breast as it once did and succumb to gravity.  

  • The fluctuation in the size of the breasts during pregnancy can lead to the skin not retracting back to its pre-pregnancy state. This leads to stretch marks and the breasts appearing droopy, in addition to the nipple-areola changing size and shape
  • Weight fluctuations cause the skin to stretch, and with changes analogous to pregnancy, it can often leave the breasts sagging. This category of patients is very well suited to mastopexy

The first post-operative check will be at 48 hours. The bra size will be measured and made available for collection the following day. The bra will have to be worn for 6 weeks

A further check will be made at 1, 2 and 4 weeks. 

Patients are typically back to an office-based work environment within the first week 

Exercise can resume at 6 weeks

Scar management will typically begin at 3 weeks

I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr Faisal and I honestly couldn’t recommend him enough. The whole process from consultation to aftercare appointments was professional, caring and to the highest standard. He listened to what I wanted and the results are incredible. I would have any future treatments done by Dr Faisal and would send anyone I know to him also.

Been looking for doctors over years now both in Dubai and India. Never felt fully comfortable with anyone to go forward with the procedure, then I came across Dr. Faizal, found him while I was doing research online and read a lot of positive reviews. Went down for a consultation, a really gem of a person. Immediately felt comfortable, he explained me everything in detail, assured me and got exactly what I wanted and the price was reasonable as well. The hospital the surgery was held at had the best services and staff as well. They took care of everything and made me feel safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. Came back home the same day, I'm at 6 weeks post op now, and the healing is wonderful and now I feel much more confident, all thanks to him. If anyone is looking for a breast augmentation, I would definitely suggest to go for a consultation with him and decide for themselves.
good choice

Having done a lot of research and looked around Dubai for the best possible option for us, we found Dr Faisal, and I'm so glad we did! The non judgemental and honest advice throughout as well as his pre and post op care is incredible and has been there every step of the way for me. Thank you so much Dr Faisal for everything :).

I came to Dr.Faisal not sure of anything. I wasn’t happy with my body as I had a lot of excess skin due to massive weight loss. I was scared of the idea of a surgery, so came in hoping for an alternative. Here I am months - 3 months post my surgery, wearing a pair of jeans that would have never fit me before. I had a lower body lift surgery done, and I must say my results are amazing. My body has changed so much, and I am very very happy with the way I look now. Dr.Faisal is a great doctor. He will make sure you are aware of everything before and after the procedure and is always there for his patients. My favorite trait about him is that he is always available. Being a patient who has low pain tolerance, and someone who worries a lot, I would always call him. I would have a lot to ask before and after the surgery- and he was always there. It didn’t matter what day or time it was, he made sure to help with every little thing and I am very grateful for him. Thank you doctor, I can now sit without having layers of my stomach falling down, I can now wear my clothes much more confidently and can finally say I love my body.

I can’t recommend Dr Faisal enough, he gets me the results I want every time. He answers all of my questions in depth and explains how and why he does things and makes me feel comfortable. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!

Two words to describe my experience with Dr. Faisal: life changing. I had a breast reduction and it has changed my life! The procedure itself was painful for the first 2 hours and much to my surprise I was ready to go home only 4 hours after waking up and ready to return to work only 3 days later. My back, neck and shoulders feel great, my posture is better and I couldn't be happier! I recommend Dr. Faisal and the surgery 100%, my only regret is not finding him 10 years sooner! Thank you Doc!!

Dr Faisal is a skilled surgeon who is extremely meticulous and I would highly recommend him. He has a pleasant and calm demeanor which puts you at ease. He looks at the whole person and what they want to achieve and relays realistically what can be done which helps set the right level of expectation from the outset. He shows compassion throughout the process which makes you feel like you are in good hands. Overall Dr Faisal exceeded my expectations and I am so pleased with my results!
