Breast Lift Surgery - Mastopexy
Dr. Levine specializes in breast lifts and delivers the results you desire.
This procedure is designed to lift and reshape the sagging breast. The breasts may sag as a result of aging, following weight loss, or following pregnancies with or without breastfeeding. A breast implant can be inserted at the same time as a breast lift if the breast has also lost volume.
What Happens During Breast Lift Surgery?
At the time of the surgery, the nipple is moved to a higher position by tightening and removing the excess skin of the breast. If a mild lift is indicated, the procedure can be done through a scar around the nipple. If a more extensive lift is required, there will be a scar around the nipple, a vertical scar extending from the nipple downwards over the breast, and sometimes in the lower crease of the breast.
Recovery and Results
Depending on which kind of breast lift surgery you require or suits your needs best, the recovery time for a breast lift is generally a week. Normally, patients return back to work within 1 week. Dr. Levine can perform the surgery at a private clinic that specializes in cosmetic surgery or at St. Joseph’s Health Centre.
