Combining breast lift surgery with augmentation at the University of Ottawa
When breasts lose their firmness and volume due to factors such as aging, pregnancy and weight loss, it can be distressing and negatively impact one’s body image. A breast lift procedure (mastopexy) can be combined with augmentation to address these concerns. A review of your health and medical history will ascertain your candidacy for surgery. During your consultation, your surgeon will advise you on decisions such as implant type, size and placement. The incisions points for the mastopexy vary according to the surgical techniques that are employed. The procedure involves tightening and reshaping the underlying muscle, connective and breast tissues, inserting the selected implants, trimming excess skin and arranging the nipple and areola into place. The ultimate goal is to achieve natural-looking lifted, full and symmetrical breasts. You will be fully informed on what to expect pre, during and post operation to ensure your safety, comfort and optimal recovery.
