Breast Lift

How long has it been since you stepped out of the shower and saw beautifully contoured, perky breasts in the mirror? Many breast lift patients have watched helplessly as their breasts slowly migrate south while losing volume and shape. Age, significant weight fluctuation,and having children considerably affect skin laxity and breast structure causing our breasts to sag.

Breast Lift Surgery is performed to elevate and reshape breasts that have begun to droop and sag. The procedure also restores fullness and volume so that breasts are firmer, rounder and more youthful looking. Serving breast lift patients in our Burlington office and Milton Hospital, Dr. Assad has built a reputation for creating beautiful, natural looking results.

Breast Lift Candidates

Breast Lift surgery (Mastopexy) is a solution for women whose breasts have begun to lose their shape. This occurs over time during the aging process as the skin loses elasticity, and gravity causes the breasts to sag downwards. Pregnancy, breast-feeding, or significant weight loss can cause the breasts to droop even in younger women. Breast Lift surgery has helped many patients who have had children restore shapely breast contours once again. Older patients can enjoy having the breast contours of younger women. Breast Lift surgery should be postponed if you are planning on having children or losing a significant amount of weight in the future. Having the surgery performed when you are near your ideal weight will allow a better result that will last longer.

The Breast Lift Procedure

Breast Lifts by Dr.Assad are performed in Milton Hospital where patient care, comfort and safety is of the highest standard. An experienced anesthesiologist is on hand to make sure our patients are relaxed and feel no discomfort during treatment. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr Assad will carefully make incisions, trim away the excess skin and lift the nipple-areola to a higher, more youthful position. Some patients wish to have breast implants inserted during breast lift surgery to increase upper pole fullness. Some dramatic improvements are achieved by combining breast lift and breast augmentation in this manner. The incisions are carefully closed with Dr. Assad’s scar sparing technique.

After Breast Lift

Dr Assad and the staff are here to provide complete guidance and support throughout the recovery period. We will advise you on the steps to take to ensure that you heal as quickly and comfortable as possible. Patients need to ensure they are getting plenty of rest in days following their breast lift surgery. It’s important to avoid lifting, bending over or raising the arms above the head. A couple of days after the breast lift procedure, we have patients return to our office for a follow up appointment where we replace surgical bandages with a light bra. Patients can generally return to work within three to seven days of their breast lift surgery, depending on their comfort level.
