Breast lift (mastopexy) at the University of Ottawa
When the breasts sag or droop due to aging, pregnancy, weight loss and hormonal changes a breast lift procedure can restore them to a familiar and rejuvenated form. For women suffering from breast ptosis, a mastopexy procedure can relieve discomfort and improve body image. An overview of your health and medical history during your consultation will ascertain your treatment candidacy. Your surgeon will establish a surgical plan to achieve your objectives. This will dictate the incision placement for the mastopexy with the aim to minimize visible scarring. The goal of a breast lift is to tighten and lift the skin, muscle, connective and breast tissue and reposition the nipple and areola for a natural and pleasing outcome. A breast augmentation may also be integrated to replenish volume. Your surgeon will explain what to expect pre, during and post operation to ensure your safety, comfort and optimal recovery.
