Voluptuous, shapely breasts are a powerful symbol of feminine beauty. However, as women age their breasts often begin to look saggy and deflated. Dr. Golger of Avenue Plastic Surgery can help reclaim your former breast shape by performing breast lift surgery in Toronto. By gently lifting the breast tissues, he can restore a perkier, more youthful appearance and help you feel more self-assured and confident. Read on to learn more about breast lift with Dr. Alexander Golger, one of the more accomplished Toronto cosmetic surgeons.
You might be an excellent breast lift candidate if your breasts have lost their volume and shape and your nipples appear droopy. While not every woman with these characteristics needs surgery, you might benefit from breast lift if the appearance of your breasts makes you feel self-conscious and less attractive.
In addition, you might benefit from breast lift if you have recently lost a massive amount of weight and your breasts have failed to resume their previous shape due to skin laxity. Another group of women who often pursue breast lift are those who have experienced one or more pregnancies. During pregnancy, the breasts often dramatically increase in volume. Once the woman stops breastfeeding, the breasts usually shrink back to their pre-pregnancy size. The rapid expansion and contraction takes a toll on the breast tissues, often resulting in droopy-looking breasts.
Breast lift is often performed in combination with breast augmentation with breast implants for women whose breasts have lost both volume and elevation.
Dr. Golger will first conduct a thorough consultation to determine whether you are a breast lift Toronto candidate. He will then discuss your surgical options and work with you to create an individualized treatment plan. He will also provide detailed presurgery instructions to help you prepare for your treatment. Important preparations include discontinuing certain medications and supplements and stopping smoking. It is vital to stop smoking at least two weeks before your surgery because smoking interferes with proper blood flow and might prolong the recovery period.
Dr. Golger performs breast lift surgery under general anesthesia. Once the patient is prepared, he creates an anchor-shaped incision in each breast. Dr. Golger uses these opening to remove excess skin and raise the breasts and nipples to a higher position. The surgery is typically completed in three to four hours, after which most patients are allowed to go home.
Over the next several weeks, Dr. Golger and his medical staff carefully observe the patient’s recovery. You will be asked to return to Dr. Golger’s offices for weekly checkups, and Dr. Golger will encourage you to contact him immediately if you experience significant discomfort or any signs of complications. While serious complications after breast lift surgery are rare, Dr. Golger strives to minimize the risk by providing the best possible postsurgical care.
