Should You Consider Breast Lift & Augmentation?

Ageing, having children and weight loss can all cause your breasts to lose firmness, which can lead to a deflated appearance. This is a common complaint for many women. Breast lift surgery, however, can create a firmer, ‘perkier’ appearance.

A breast uplift or mastopexy can lift and reshape your breasts. The surgery involves removing excess skin from either underneath the breast or around the areola. The skin is tightened which creates a firmer cone of breast tissue and the nipple is moved to a higher position to give a more youthful and firm appearance. A breast enlargement may also be performed at the same time in order to create the results you want.

Whether you have always been displeased with the size or shape of your breasts, or want to correct changes following pregnancy, weight loss or aging, Dr. Boudana’s personalized approach will meet your expectations.

With thousands breast implant and breast lift surgeries under his belt, Dr. Boudana is one of the most experienced plastic surgeons in Toronto area, Ontario.

Are you a good candidate for breast augmentation?

The ideal Breast Lift with Augmentation candidate comes from one of the following groups:

  1. Women whose breasts never developed proportionately, are limited in the clothing they can buy, and who would like more confidence in their appearance.
  2. Women who have lost breast volume after breastfeeding and want to restore what was lost and fill up what may have become an empty breast.
  3. Women with drooping breasts who would require a breast lift with the enhancement.

You must be healthy enough to undergo an elective operation and mature enough to weigh the risks and benefits of surgery.

What are the procedure techniques and scars

Breast augmentation with mastopexy is a cosmetic surgery that inserts implants into the breast to increase breast size, and lifts the breasts by removing excess skin and reshaping breast tissue.

After the implant is inserted, the surrounding tissue is reshaped and lifted. Excess skin is removed and tightened to adapt to the new shape and contour of the breasts.

In case of significant vertical or horizontal ptosis (breast sag), an inverted T incision is used and results in a periareolar scar (around the areola between the darker skin of the areola and the lighter skin of the breast), which continues vertically down the middle of the breast (between the lower edge of the areola and under the crease of the breast), and horizontally across the base (hidden in the crease of the breast).

More often, for moderate ptosis, the “vertical” method is preferred. With this method, scarring is reduced to its vertical and periareolar components with no horizontal scar in the submammary crease.

In some cases of very mild breast ptosis, sag can be corrected with an incision only around the areola.

Short scar for breast augmentation

Short scar breast augmentation is one of Dr. Boudana’s specialties. In this procedure, saline implants are inserted in a submuscular position under the breast (incision under the breast). The scar in this case is generally between 1 cm and 2 cm long. If this technique interests you, you can ask for more information during your consultation.

There are two types of breast implants: round implants and teardrop implants (also known as anatomical implants).

It has long been accepted that anatomical implants have a more natural look. However, recent studies suggest that both plastic surgeons and patients cannot tell the difference between breasts augmented with round or teardrop implants. As such, Dr. Boudana believes that, in the absence of sagging or breast deformity, round and teardrop implants will achieve the same result.


These implants are made of a silicone elastomer outer shell filled with a cohesive silicone gel, meaning they retain their shape and roundness like a gel and are less likely to leak if the shell breaks.

These implants differ from saline-filled implants, which in thinner patients can ripple showing folds and wrinkles. The use of silicone implants may reduce the risk of rippling in some patients.

During the pre-operative consultation, Dr. Boudana will advise you on breast implant types, and discuss the pros and cons of each type with you. As an expert breast augmentation surgeon, he is comfortable using all types of implants: saline, silicone, and hybrid.


Saline implants are made of the same silicone elastomer shell as silicone implants but are filled with a saline solution. It is recognized that they are more likely to produce waves under the skin that may be visible especially in thin patients.

Breast implants: over or under the muscle?

The breast implant can be placed under the muscle (subpectoral augmentation) or over the muscle (subglandular augmentation).

Many factors will influence this decision. These include the quality and thickness of the breast tissue, the strength of the pectoral muscle, the size and type of implants chosen, and the type of physical activity the patient performs.

All this will be discussed in consultation with Dr. Boudana, who will explain the advantages and disadvantages of subglandular and subpectoral augmentation.

What is the lifespan of breast implants?

Dr. Boudana understands that breast augmentation represents a considerable investment. Therefore, he wants patients to be reassured about the quality and lifespan of breast implants. There is a misconception that breast implants should be replaced every 10 years, when in fact women can theoretically live their entire lives with the same implants. In reality, breast implants should only be changed if there is a problem.

In addition, implant manufacturers are so confident in the longevity of their product that they offer a lifetime guarantee on implants. This means that in the rare case an implant ruptures, the manufacturer will provide a replacement implant at no charge.

You should also note that in the rare case of rupture, cohesive gel and saline implants are particularly safe. While implants used decades ago had higher risks of rupture, today’s implants are safer. If a rupture does occur, saline implants contain a saline solution that will be absorbed by the body, while the solid silicone in a cohesive gel implant will not leak.

Furthermore, several studies have shown that women with breast implants are no more likely to develop breast cancer than women without implants.
