Every woman dreams of a beautiful and upright look of breasts. However, pregnancy and frequent weight gains and loses may overshadow this dream. Aging, genetic factors and giving birth may lead to drooping breasts. Drooping breasts may be corrected with plastic breast operations. Besides that, deformations are reshaped in the scope of the plastic breast operations as well. Unequal look of breasts is balanced, and breasts can be reduced or augmented, depending on the patient’s need.

What is breast lift?
Breast lift operation is the procedure of lifting and reshaping the breast (removing the excess tissue) and repositioning the inframammary fold and nipple. In some cases, this procedure can be combined with a breast augmentation operation. Droopy look is fixed and a tighter and younger appearance is obtained. It is generally applied to the patients who are fine with their breast size, but have a droopy look. Sagging of the breasts can occur over time due to factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding and changes that accompany weight loss or it may be simply a genetic predisposition. Breast lift (or mastopexy) is a cosmetic surgery procedure to correct the droopy shape, creating a perkier look. Breast lift surgery provides a long-term result improvement in breast shape. Anyone with sagging breasts is a candidate for a breast lift, however, the larger and heavier the breast size, the harder it is to elevate the shape and maintain the improvement. Because of this, sometimes a mastopexy is combined with a reduction procedure to achieve a longer lasting correction.
Performed to reduce or eliminate these problems, breast lift surgeries’ purpose is to get a firmer skin and tip-tilted breasts by shaping the breast tissue. Breast lift procedure involves incisions to remove excess skin in order to recreate a snug natural breast contour. Skin markings are carefully measured pre-operatively while the patient is standing. This allows the best accuracy in creating a symmetric shape for the lifted breasts. The incision defines the area of skin that will be removed and a new, higher location for the nipple is outlined. The nipple is not detached, but rather repositioned to a higher area on the breast once the excess skin has been removed. The excess skin is removed and the incision stitched around the areola and downwards from the nipple in a “lollipop” pattern. Surgical tapes are applied to reinforce the new shape and a sterile bandage finishes the procedure.
Pain or discomfort following this type of surgery is surprisingly little. Patients often tell me that they only needed one or two pain pills during the whole recovery! I always prescribe antibiotics for a few days to help prevent infections as well as something for pain – just in case.
I recommend that patients wear a soft supportive bra like a sports bra for the first weeks after surgery. There is no big bandage after the first 24 hours, just the waterproof tapes protecting the incision, so patients can shower the next day. Breast lift surgery stitches all dissolve so suture removal is not an issue. I see my patients for the first check-up after one week and then every few weeks for several months. During this time the breast shape is slowly rounding out. It takes about 3 months for the final shape to stabilize. Most patients return to full activities including the gym after 4 weeks.
What is Breast Augmentation?
Women with small breasts can augment them with implants or those with sagging breasts due to aging or pregnancy can make their breasts upright with mammal prostheses. The demand for breast augmentation to enhance one’s figure and confidence is ever-growing. If individual styles of clothing make you feel self-conscious, or if you’ve dreamed of balanced proportions and life without padded bras, breast implant surgery could make a significant difference for you. Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure that enhances a woman’s breasts using implants filled with cohesive silicone gel or a saline solution, which are placed behind the breast tissue, behind the muscle, or somewhere under the fascia (a very thin tissue that is between your chest muscle and breast tissue.)
Breasts come in several shapes and sizes, and every woman has a different concept of her ideal breasts. Breast augmentation patients choose their breast implants with the help of the newest sizers on the market. Implants observed that patients bring a sports bra that will fit the size of breasts they desire so they can view sizers while looking in a mirror.
- · A natural teardrop shape
- · Nice upper pole fullness
- · Soft and smooth margins
Breast augmentation performed while you are under either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. The type of anesthesia that’s appropriate for you depends on the extent of your surgery, your overall health, and other factors. During your consultation and pre-op appointment, you and Dr discuss the details of your surgery more thoroughly.
Most breast augmentation procedures last from 1.25 to 1.5 hours, although if you opt for a combined procedure, your surgery will last a bit longer. During your surgery, Surgeon begins by making incisions based on your preferences and the plans you made in the pre-op process. She uses meticulous techniques to create a pocket within the breast tissue, directly visualizing the area to minimize bleeding and create the natural-looking cleavage desired by most of her patients.
The results are permanent lifelong, except the natural aging process. Size is adjusted as desired, placement is checked during the operation, and a nice result is obtained, as all breast prostheses are manufactured in good forms.
The measure of a high quality breast prosthesis operation is reaching “natural looking” results. Consequently, for a woman with breast smallness problems, silicone breast prosthesis is the only fast, good method to bring beauty without leaving any scar.
Breast augmentation patients can usually return home the day of their procedure. On average, women feel discomfort for 3 to 7 days after surgery. Some women will require drains for a few days. In most cases, stitches are internal and dissolving.
We recommend our breast enlargement patients in Toronto initiate walking and stretching on the day of the procedure, avoid exercise for 4 weeks and avoid upper chest exercises for 8 weeks. Most women can return to desk work after 7 to 10 days.
Patients generally wear a compression garment for 2 days, followed by a comfortable sports bra. Push-up and underwire bras should be avoided for 6 to 8 weeks.
Fat Injection to Breast Augmentation
Using purified fat cells taken from an area of the patient’s body where it’s unwanted and then transferring the fat to the breasts is a relatively new technique that’s an option for women who want only a modest increase in breast size. It’s also an excellent technique for correcting breast asymmetry or to camouflage implant ripples for patients with thin breast skin. Stem Cell Rich Fat transfer, generally usage of your own fat for enhancement, involves removing fat using liposuction and then separating the cells from impurities with a centrifuge.
Fat grafting can also be used to enhance cleavage with breast implants, but this process requires a plastic surgeon with excellent technical skills to avoid a complication called symmastia.
What is Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction patients are typically seeking relief from physical symptoms caused by the excessive weight of large breasts. Breast reduction can usually solve these problems and improve the appearance of a woman’s breasts by reducing their size and weight. Breast reduction is an operation fit for patients whose mammal tissue is bigger than desired. At the same time, in case of mammal hypertrophy or macromastia, breast reduction is applied. For women, oversize breasts not only lead to aesthetic problems, but also cause backache. Dirt and moisture accumulated under oversized breasts lead people to have hygienic problems and a foul odor. Big breasts also cause self-esteem problems for women.
Breast reduction takes place under general anesthesia in most cases. The procedure generally takes about 3 hours. Performed by uses glandular remodeling and fascial suspension techniques to provide vertical support. It also removes excess skin when performing breast reduction surgery. A breast lift is always a positive outcome of a breast reduction procedure.
In the breast reduction operation, excess mammal tissue is removed, excess breast skin is wrapped up and upright breasts are created. Breast reduction surgery can improve your overall well being while improving your appearance. Breast reduction patients can usually return home the day of their procedure. Patients often feel discomfort for 3 to 5 days after surgery. Some women will require drains for a few days.
Breast reduction patients should initiate walking and stretching on the day of the procedure, avoid exercise for 4 weeks and avoid upper chest exercises for 6 weeks. Most women can return to desk work after 7 to 14 days.
Patients generally wear a compression garment for 2 days, followed by a comfortable sports bra. Breast reduction patients should avoid push-up and underwire bras for 6 to 8 weeks.
