What is Breast Lift

A breast lift, commonly referred to as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of the breasts. It is an ideal choice for women who are generally satisfied with the size of their breasts but seek to regain a more youthful shape, texture, and contour. If you are satisfied with the size of your breast, but dissatisfied with position or shape, a breast lift (or mastopexy) may be the right procedure for you. As the body undergoes natural aging, or due to factors like pregnancy and weight loss, the breasts may experience sagging skin and drooping, known as ptosis. The breast lift procedure aims to address these common concerns and restore the breasts to a firmer and “perkier” state, providing beautiful, natural-looking results.

At The Ottawa Clinic, we are proud to offer the expertise of our experienced plastic surgeons who specialize in breast lift procedures. During the surgery, excess skin is carefully removed, and the underlying breast tissue is repositioned to achieve a higher and more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Our skilled surgeons can also adjust the position of the nipples to complement the newly contoured breasts. By tailoring the procedure to individual needs, we ensure that each patient receives personalized care and achieves their desired outcome.

The breast lift surgery is performed under the safety of general anesthesia at our fully accredited facility in Ottawa. Depending on the extent of correction needed, incisions may vary from those limited around the areola to more extensive ones along the crease beneath the breast. Our dedicated team will guide patients through the entire process, from the initial consultation, where concerns and goals are discussed, to the post-operative care, ensuring a smooth and comfortable recovery.

Ultimately, a breast lift offers a transformative solution for women seeking to regain confidence in their breasts’ appearance. If you desire firmer, more youthful-looking breasts, The Ottawa Clinic’s breast lift service, led by our skilled plastic surgeons, is committed to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals with exceptional results.
