Breast sagging is an inevitable result of aging, but it can happen earlier when you have a pregnancy or fluctuations in your body weight. Through breast lift surgery in Toronto & Oshawa, we reposition the breasts to give you a more youthful appearance.
A breast lift surgery is designed to treat conditions like:
- Breast sagging or drooping
- Nipples pointing downward
- Loss of firmness in the breasts
During surgery, the plastic surgeon’s main goal is to elevate the breasts to a higher position. Secondary goals can include resizing of the areola and improving breast symmetry. A breast lift will not enlarge your breast size, but can be combined with breast augmentation surgery to restore breast volume when needed.
BREAST LIFT SURGERY IN TORONTO & OSHAWA FAQ
How does a breast lift surgery work?
We administer a general anesthetic, or local anesthetic combined with sedation. Incisions travel along the breast crease, and in a vertical line connecting the other two incisions. We remove loose skin and glandular tissue from the breast, and then elevate the nipple and areola.
What can I expect after breast surgery in Toronto & Oshawa?
Incisions are bandaged and temporary drains are placed. We send you home with aftercare instructions, a prescription for pain medication, and a supportive bra to wear for several weeks. You’ll return for followup appointments to have bandages and stitches removed.
How long is the recovery time?
You may be able to resume your normal routine as soon as one week after surgery, but strenuous activity should be postponed for 3-6 weeks.
