Should You Consider A Breast Lift?

Dr. David Boudana understands that a woman’s breasts can be one of the most psychologically challenging aspects of a woman’s sense of self. While its biological job is to nurture a child it is also one of the many ways a woman conveys and expresses her sexuality. And so he understands that between time and childbirth, when the breast begings to sag or lose its fullness, it can truly affect the way a woman feels about her body. This is a why the breast lift has become a very popular procedure, particularly for mothers.

Mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, is a surgical procedure that improves the position and shape of a woman’s breasts. During the breast lift, excess skin is removed, and glandular tissues are reshaped.

Are you a good candidate for breast lift?

Breast lift is for women who have sagging breasts or whose areola is too low. This sagging breasts can occur after pregnancy, aging or a significant change in weight.

Women who have flat, asymmetrical, sagging breasts, or who have a loss of skin elasticity, large truss aureoles, or downward pointing nipples are excellent candidates for this procedure.

Techniques and Scars

  1. 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).
  2. 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.
  3. In some cases of very mild breast ptosis, sag can be corrected with an incision only around the areola.

It is important to understand that a mastopexy “lifts” the breasts and reshapes them for a more flattering appearance. However, it does not provide upper pole fullness. Breasts are naturally pear-shaped. Thus, if your objective is to achieve greater upper pole fullness or increase the size of your breasts, breast implants or fat transfer breast augmentation is recommended.

Procedure details

During the consultation, Dr. Boudana will listen carefully to your expectations regarding desired breast size and shape. This will help Dr. Boudana better understand your goals. As such, a large part of the consultation is dedicated to listening to you. However, not all goals are realistic, and it is important to understand what surgery can and cannot accomplish.

Dr. Boudana will examine your breasts and assess all the factors that could influence their aesthetics. These include the size and shape of your natural breasts, skin and gland quality, and the position and size of your nipples and areolas. Breast sag is assessed by taking measurements, and more specifically by the position of the nipple in relation to the crease under the breast.

He will then take a 3D scan of your breasts and create simulations to illustrate the potential result. A virtual reality simulation is also offered.

Dr. Boudana only operates on patients in private state-of-the-art operating rooms accredited by Accreditation Canada. This accreditation is a guarantee that the facilities meet stringent safety and quality standards.

The operation is performed under general anaesthesia and lasts between 1.5 hours and 2.5 hours.

Once you are under anaesthesia, the skin of your breasts will be carefully cleaned with an antiseptic to prevent infection. This step is performed according to medical recommendations and standards.

Following the operation, you will be taken to a recovery room with a bandage on each breast.

Depending on the case, a compression bra may be recommended either immediately after surgery or in the days following the surgery. you will need to have someone take you home and help and monitor you for the first 24 hours.

After the surgery, you will receive a personalized follow-up. Our nurses will also be available and will perform the first dressing change at our clinic, typically one week after surgery.

You will be given a postoperative instruction sheet when you are discharged as well as a prescription for pain medication.

All our follow-up appointments are free of charge for the first year after your surgery.


Stunning Results – Get The Lift You’ve Always Wanted

The effect of a breast lift is seen immediately and is life changing. It is understandable that one should expect long-lasting results after going through surgery. Several factors affect the longevity of a breast lift: The first is your skin elasticity and tissue firmness; poor skin elasticity and lack of firmness will generally shorten the duration of your results. The need for breast implant to restore volume and firmness will also affect longevity. Life events such as pregnancy and weight loss can also affect the results of your surgery. Finally, the technique and talent of your plastic surgeon will play a major role.
