Combining breast lift surgery with augmentation at the University of Ottawa.
Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) can be combined with breast augmentation when patients wish to correct drooping breasts and simultaneously enhance their breast size for a fuller, more youthful look. Aging, genetics, weight loss and pregnancy are some of the factors that can affect the placement and volume the breasts. A consultation with a plastic surgeon will determine if a mastopexy-breast augmentation can address the patient’s aesthetic concerns. The incision placement for a mastopexy will vary based on the technique that is used, with the goal of minimizing scar visibility. Excess skin is trimmed, muscle and connective tissues are tightened, your desired size of breast implant is inserted, and the nipple and areola are repositioned for a rejuvenated, natural and flattering result. Patients under the care of plastic surgeons at the University of Ottawa will be informed on what to expect pre, during and post operation to ensure their comfort, safety and optimal recovery.
