Breast Lift Surgery / Mastopexy

The Basics of Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery, medically known as mastopexy, is a procedure designed to lift sagging breasts to a more youthful position without significantly changing their size. Weight gain, weight loss and breast feeding can cause your breasts to lose volume and sag, causing the nipples to point downward.

During the surgery, Dr. Sliwin makes incisions and then moves breast tissue so he can adjust it and essentially rebuild your breasts so they look full and perky. The nipples are usually repositioned as part of the surgery to correspond with the new contour of the breast, and the areola size may be reduced, if necessary.

Toronto Breast Lifts by Dr. Sammy Sliwin

At the Forest Hill Institute of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sammy Sliwin MD, FRCSC provides Toronto and its surrounding regions with a number of different cosmetic procedures. Dr. Sliwin’s expertise and range of services varies between surgical and non-surgical procedures, with breast lifts being one of the most sought after.

The decision to get a breast lift is an exciting and beneficial procedure for women which will ultimately help with overall appearance and often raises self-esteem. Women usually consider a breast lift after childbirth or when the aging process begins to succumb to gravity. Breast lifts can be carried out alone or accompanied by a  breast augmentation.

How Will a Breast Lift Benefit Me?

  • Your breasts will appear more even
  • Your breasts will appear fuller and perkier
  • Areolas and nipples will be more evenly balanced
  • Patients often experience increased self-confidence
  • Clothes will fit better and more comfortably, including bras, bikinis and blouses

Am I Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is designed to raise the breasts, allowing them to appear perkier and more youthful without changing their size or natural teardrop shape. The main causes for sagging breasts include aging, a change in weight, and breastfeeding. Breasts can lose their fullness over time, which creates sagginess and too much elasticity.

Women often consider the surgical procedure when they realize that they no longer have the figure they once had, when they desire a more feminine and youthful body, or when finding a bra to help encourage the perkiness of the breasts becomes challenging. After a consultation with Dr. Sliwin, patients will have a clear understanding of how the breast lift will improve their appearance.

How Is a Breast Lift Performed?

By creating a few small incisions that are inconspicuous when healed, Dr. Sliwin will reconstruct the breast tissue so that it forms a more natural and fuller breast. The nipples will also be repositioned so that they face forward rather than downward. If necessary, the size of the areola might also be reduced.

Fortunately, a breast lift is an outpatient procedure that requires very little attention in comparison to similar surgeries. There are very little risks involved as long as the aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Sliwin are followed. Follow-up appointments for Toronto patients will be required so that the healing process can be directly monitored.

What Does the Aftercare Process Usually Entail?

  • Patients will wear a sports bra or tight fitting, comfortable bra without underwire for approximately four weeks
  • Patients will be given proper instructions on how to effectively clean their incisions
  • Patients will be required to attend a follow-up appointment the week after their surgery to ensure everything is healing properly
  • Breast lift patients will have to refrain from strenuous activity until Dr. Sliwin gives you approval
  • Women should refrain from lifting their arms above their head, as well as refrain from any heavy lifting, for up to four weeks after surgery
  • Patients are required to have at least a week off work after the surgery in order to properly heal
  • Breasts can take anywhere from six months to a year to settle into their lifelong shape
