The surgical procedure designed to lift
Frequently Experienced Conditions
Toronto breast lifts are specially designed to treat the following conditions that are frequently experienced by women:
- Sagging and/or drooping breasts
- Nipples pointing downward
- Loss of firmness and volume in breasts
By lifting and reshaping sagging breasts, a breast lift surgery has the capability to rejuvenate body proportions, change how clothing fits and especially how the breasts look without clothing. When done with an expert plastic surgeon, the overwhelming majority of women are satisfied with their Mastopexy and have reported a renewed sense of self-confidence and happiness because of their aesthetic improvements.
At Avenue Plastic Surgery, we offer breast lift surgery in Toronto and Whitby for women who seek to improve their body. Dr. Golger and Dr. Romy will work with you to achieve the following goals:
- Reposition and/or elevate the breasts
- Improve asymmetry
- Resize the areola, if necessary
It is important to remember that a breast lift surgery does not aim to enlarge your breast size. However, it can be completed in conjunction with a breast augmentation surgery, using implants to increase volume and size of the breasts.
A typical Toronto breast lift surgery will take between 2-3 hours to complete under a general anesthetic, or local anesthetic combined with intravenous sedation.
Different techniques are available depending on the individual patient’s goals for the procedure. Traditionally, incisions along the breast crease, vertically and around areolas, were designed to remove excess skin and completely revise the shape and position of breasts. This approach is often referred to as the “anchor” technique. Depending on the client, incisions and scarring can be minimized with a “short scar” or lollipop approach. As well, areola resizing and minor lifting can also be achieved through a circumareolar lift, which eliminates the vertical and crease incisions.
Dr’s Golger and Ahluwaliah are known for their leading edge, short scar and minimal scarring techniques, which achieve dramatic results without the use of drains.
The first incision created by your plastic surgeon will surround the areola, and utilizes short, vertical lines underneath to lift the breast. Breast skin is carefully gathered around the areola set at a higher position. Finally, the edges are brought together carefully and sutured internally to create clean, minimal scar lines. At this point, if a patient is also receiving a breast implant, the plastic surgeon will insert the implant under the breast tissue and/or pectoral muscle. This common combination of cosmetic procedures is also referred to as augmentation mastopexy.

I recently had a tummy tuck and breast lift (3 months ago) with Dr.Golger and do not remember the last time I felt so good about myself! I overheard my daughter telling her boyfriend “my mom is like a pig in sh*t since she had her surgery but she keeps wearing my clothes”. Ha! Well if thats the worst she’s saying…I’ll take it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I (obviously) couldn’t have done it without you. That being said…I 100% recommend Dr.Golger!
