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.

Why would you want a breast lift?
The breasts are prone to sagging. Various factors can cause breasts to sag such as:
- Congenital complications
- Weight loss
- The effects of aging
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.

Potential candidates for a breast lift are women who:
- Are self-conscious of how sagging and age have affected the contours of their breasts

Breast Lift Procedure
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.
Recovery from a Breast Lift 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. You can read more about silicone scar gel here. Excessive sun exposure and tanning can permanently darken scars, therefore you should make sure to cover them up whenever you’re out. This is particularly important in the first 12-18 months or so after your surgery, when scars are still maturing.
How Young is Too Young for a Breast Lift?
As cosmetic procedures continue to grow in popularity, many younger women are considering breast lifts to address their aesthetic concerns. But you might be wondering what the proper age is to undergo a breast lift.
There are many factors that contribute to a loss of volume and shape in the breasts. As you age, the skin’s elasticity decreases and causes them to drop down as result of gravity.
Losing weight and bearing children can also impact the size and firmness of the breast tissue and volume of fat that fills the breast.
A breast lift allows you to reposition them higher while enhancing their firmness. This adds more shape and volume and gives you a more youthful appearance. In some cases, breast lifts are performed alongside a breast implant procedure to supplement the results.
Who Qualifies for Breast Lifts?
A breast lift is an ideal solution to treat a wide range of issues. If you experience excessive sagging of the breasts, downward pointing nipples, or large breasts that drop due to their weight, a breast lift can give you great results.
Asymmetry in the breasts can also be treated with a breast lift. This includes cases where one breast has a fuller appearance than the other, as well as those in which the positioning of the each breast differs.
For would-be mothers, a breast lift will not interfere with breastfeeding, as the ducts near the nipples are not affected. However, it’s important to note that with any cosmetic breast surgery, the risk of inability to breastfeed is a rare possibility.
Breast Lift At an Early Age
For younger women who are looking to undergo a breast lift, there are a few things you should consider. Some women experience sagging breasts early in their lives, which can be a result of their development, weight fluctuations or other physical issues.
A breast lift can be effectively performed on younger women. The most important factor to consider is that the breasts have reached their full level of development before performing surgery.
Most women reach this point by the time they reach their early 20s. Women who are in good health and understand the realistic expectations of the results they can achieve can undergo a breast lift.
Understanding how a breast lift can help you restore your appearance and whether you are a good candidate will help you determine if this procedure is right for you. Young women whose breasts have finished developing can safely use breast lifts to enhance their breasts, restore volume, and achieve a more aesthetically pleasing look.
