A breast augmentation with a breast lift, also known as a mastopexy-augmentation, involves enhancing the size and shape of the breasts with breast implants while simultaneously removing excess skin to correct sagging, deflated breasts. This combination technique leaves patients with fuller, perkier breasts.
Adding a breast lift to a traditional augmentation is a well-rounded approach to altering the breasts to a patient’s ideal shape and size. It also addresses any excess skin that isn’t removed during a traditional augmentation, resulting in higher-positioned breasts, associated with a youthful appearance.
Dr. Plant has several convenient locations around Toronto to answer patient questions during a private, one-on-one consultation. Patients desiring a breast augmentation with a lift in Toronto choose Dr. Plant for his meticulous techniques and personalized undivided patient care.
If you are not satisfied with the shape, size, and/or position of your breasts, you may be the right candidate for breast augmentation with a lift in Toronto. This combination surgery by Dr. Plant is a great choice for women who want to increase the size of their breasts and restore their perky bust line at the same time. Most women want to augment their breasts to improve their appearance, but implants alone can only change the size of the breasts. A breast lift may be necessary to treat pre-existing asymmetry of the breasts or sagging caused by genetics, pregnancy, breastfeeding, menopause, and massive weight loss.
Women who receive breast enhancement surgery in Toronto gain a boost in confidence that is priceless! After their procedure, patients enjoy their new appearance both in and out of clothes and find it easier to wear certain styles of swimwear.
Your Toronto breast augmentation with lift can involve a variety of incision patterns and techniques. The final scar pattern can vary, but generally falls into one of three types:
- The “Donut Lift” – a circle around the areola
- The “Lollipop lift” – a circle around the areola with a straight line extending down towards the crease under the breast
- The “Anchor lift” – a circle around the areola with a straight line extending down towards the crease under the breast as well as an additional scar along the crease itself (creating an anchor pattern)
The techniques Dr. Plant uses for you will be determined based on:
- The shape and size of the breasts you have currently and the implants you will be getting.
- The desired positioning and size of the areolas
- The amount your breasts have sagged
- The amount of excess skin and the quality and elasticity of your skin
Once the incisions are made, Dr. Plant will:
- Lift and reshape the underlying tissue to improve the firmness and contours of your breasts with implants.
- Reposition the areola and nipple to a youthful height
- If required, reduce the enlarged areolas by removing the skin on the perimeter
- Remove excessive skin to regain elasticity
Recovery from mastopexy-augmentation surgery includes a post-surgical healing period of a couple of days where you will require some help from family or friends. You will be able to function, just not lift your arms above your head or lift anything more than 10 pounds. Swelling and soreness for the first few weeks after surgery are common but will decrease over time. Additionally, with time, the incision scars will fade.
It’s critical that you follow specific aftercare instructions from Dr. Plant. He will prescribe oral medication to improve your comfort, and you must wear a sports bra without underwires to maintain results and ensure proper healing. You will also be advised during your follow-up visit with Dr. Plant on when you can resume normal activities and exercise.
