Mastopexy, otherwise known as a breast lift, is a popular surgical procedure to reshape sagging breasts as well as correct downward-pointing nipples, enlarged areolas, unevenness, and stretched skin. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports that there were 109,638 breast lifts performed in 2018, showing an increase of 4% over the previous year. That’s how popular this procedure has become!
Breast lifts in Toronto are generally performed by tightening the tissue of the breasts to create a stronger structure and younger-looking contour. Stretched out tissues are shortened and reshaped, giving the breasts a perkier, fuller contour.
Dr. Kesarwani of Cosmedical Rejuvenation Clinic is a board certified plastic surgeon and is known for his expertise and attention to detail in performing breast lifts. That’s why our patients are consistently satisfied with their results.
The breasts are prone to sagging. Various factors can cause breasts to sag such as:
While it’s only natural that the breasts sag with age, you may still feel self-conscious about your body. It can add years to your appearance, make you look heavier than you actually are and even cause health issues, like skin irritations and inflammation.
Having a breast lift in Toronto can resolve these issues and reshape your breasts so that they’re youthful and perky as they once were.
Every woman’s breast lift experience will be personalized and tailored to accommodate the contours of their body as well as their cosmetic goals. This makes your procedure unique and special to you. Your breast lift will be different from everyone else’s, but you can expect the following as a general guideline:
Breast lift surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. That means you’ll be asleep during the entire procedure, which can take a couple of hours to complete. The duration of your procedure will depend on your aesthetic goals.
Once you spend some time in our recovery room under the caring observation of our medical team, you may return home the same day of your procedure.
Patients may resume their normal routines and return to work within a couple of weeks after a proper recovery period. We strongly advise that patients limit heavy lifting and avoid vigorous exercise for a couple of months after the procedure.
Scars are a concern for many women considering a breast lift. This is understandable. However, scars tend to fade very well with this procedure, particularly if you follow post-op instructions closely and apply silicone gel. This helps scars fade as much as possible.
