Breast lift vs. Breast Augmentation With Implants

“I want aesthetic surgery on my breasts, but I can’t decide between breast augmentation with implants, or a simple breast lift. What should I do?” This is a question I hear from patients at my Kitchener-Waterloo clinic all the time. They are unhappy with their breasts and are looking for a surgical solution. They’ve heard of breast lift surgery and breast implant surgery, but they’re not sure which option is the best for them. Here’s my approach to how we manage this often confusing question.   Are You Happy With Your Breast Size? The first question I always ask the … Continue reading »

Breast lift scars: what your plastic surgeon wants you to know.

A breast lift—also known as a mastopexy—is a surgical procedure that improves the profile, position, and shape of sagging breasts, giving them a more youthful appearance without necessarily changing their size. Many women choose to have this surgery following pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or significant volume loss as a result of aging. As with most cosmetic surgery procedures, there are many important factors to consider, from cost to recovery, and everything in between.

Among the questions we are asked at The Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, one of the most common is: “What’s the difference between a breast lift and a breast reduction?”   A breast lift, technically called a mastopexy, is an operation I perform for Waterloo and London women to tighten the skin envelope of the breast, reposition the nipple and areola to a more balanced position, and possibly add or remove breast volume. A breast reduction is just what it sounds like: an operation to make the breast smaller. I can understand the confusion between these two procedures. Every breast reduction also involves some … Continue reading »

Breast Lift: Why it’s worth it.

Breast rejuvenation with mastopexy. Most women don’t hesitate to treat themselves to a new lipstick shade or an afternoon in their hairstylist’s chair. Doing these small things to care for ourselves comes easily, but when it comes to tackling the concerns that require more research and investment, women often hold back. This is especially true when it comes to procedures like a breast lift. Time and life events can be unkind to the position and volume of the breasts. Since a woman’s breasts play a major role in body image, these changes can have a detrimental impact. So why do … Continue reading »
