Breast UpLift & Reduction
A woman’s breasts help define her femininity, and with the vast differences in shape, size and appearance, breasts further help to reflect her individuality. Therefore, changes that affect the breasts can cause dissatisfaction and make women feel as if they are losing some of their femininity and youthful vitality.
Although there are many factors that can contribute to sagging of the breasts, like in other areas of the body, the breasts undergo changes in response to factors such as genetics, the ageing process, pregnancy and breast feeding, weight gain or loss, and hormonal fluctuations. Breasts that were once firm and shapely often begin to sag and droop, giving them a loose or heavy appearance.
Dr. Foued Hamza can reduce the volume of the breast at the same time to help restore firmness and shape, which will improve body contours and give the breasts a perky and youthful appearance.
Breast uplift surgery can also be combined with breast augmentation to give you fuller breasts (breast fat injection or implants).

The Vertical Technique
This breast surgery is performed either under general anesthetic or under local anesthetic with sedation, and is often treated as a day case, meaning you will not have to stay in the hospital overnight. The procedure usually takes between one and two hours.
Dr. Foued Hamza is very famous for his skill in performing breast uplift surgery. He usually uses the vertical technique, which involves a V-shaped incision that extends around the top of the areola and down the midline of the breast. The skin is then lifted and stitched in its new position and the excess skin is removed. The nipples will then be repositioned to ensure that your newly positioned breasts look as natural as possible.
Although this procedure is slightly more invasive, it achieves a larger degree of lift. Therefore, this type of incision is appropriate for individuals with larger breasts and moderate to severe breast ptosis.
