What is a Breast Lift?
The actual name for the surgery is Mastopexy. Over time, breasts change and lose their perkiness. This is a medical condition, referred to as ptosis, and it can occur because of weight fluctuation, pregnancy, natural aging, and/or inherited factors. A breast lift elevates and tightens the breasts and also restores a youthful, more aesthetic contour.

What’s the First Step?
The first step to getting a breast lift in Ottawa is education. We firmly believe that all patients should fully understand the details of the surgery before electing to go through with the procedure. By giving us a phone call or filling out a contact form, our scheduling department will set up a time for you to come and meet one-on-one with either Dr. Boyd or Dr. Silverman. During your consultation, you’ll be able to ask questions, learn more about the breast lift procedure, and meet your surgeon.
If you and your surgeon both feel that a breast lift is the best solution for your aesthetic needs, we’ll book surgery and provide you with pre and postoperative instructions. The surgeons will also have very specific questions about current medications and past surgeries. Please be very honest with your responses as well as your aesthetic goals. Good communication often leads to great results.
What to Expect from Breast Lift Surgery
During this procedure, excess skin and fat are removed from the breast. The nipple and areola are moved to a more youthful, natural position, and skin that was located above the nipple is moved down and reshaped to improve the contour and firmness of the breast. Excess skin is then removed and, if necessary, the areola is resized. This surgery typically takes 2 hours to complete.
There are three different incision options and these vary based on the amount of lift needed. During your consultation, your surgeon will determine the incision that will provide the best results. The more common incisions include:
Lollipop: around the nipple that descends vertically down the breast.
Anchor: around the nipple, descending vertically down the breast, and horizontally lining the crease of the breast. Typically used when more intensive lifting is required.
Areolar: encircles the nipple and areola alone, and elevates the nipple, avoiding scars outside of this area. Typically used when only a small amount of lifting is needed, or when combined with breast augmentation.
Your surgeon will decide which incision technique will provide optimal results. This reconfiguration of the breast shape can leave some scarring on the breast. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss the various options and approaches with you, based on your individual build and wishes.
Typically, our breast lift patients enjoy their enhanced breast shape and contour for many years afterward. However, your breasts will still continue to change due to the natural aging process, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations.
If you have lost a considerable amount of volume in your breasts, you may want to consider combining breast implants with your breast lift.
Breast Lift Recovery
You’ll be able to go home shortly after your surgery. Similar to our breast augmentation post-op, we recommend you take it slow for a few days and arrange time off work to allow for healing. Expect to avoid strenuous activities, including exercise, for up to 6 weeks post-surgery.
