Would I Be A Good Candidate For Mastopexy?

Mastopexy, or breast lift, procedures raise sagging breasts on the chest and work to correct the size, contour and elevation of the breast on the body. Breast lift in my Montreal practice is a great solution for those looking to improve the appeal of their breasts as they age. But if you’re considering the treatment, you may be wondering whether you’d be a prime candidate for the mastopexy process. In this article, we’ll highlight the types of candidate most suitable to mastopexy procedures. Do I Need a Breast Lift? The first question to ask when analyzing your mastopexy options is whether you require the procedure for aesthetic or psychological reasons. The following issues can be resolved through the mastopexy procedure. Downward pointing nipples As the skin on the base of the breast begins to stretch and sag, you may find that the weight of the breast tissue pulls the nipple downward. Breast…

What To Know Before Mastopexy

As we age, our skin gradually loses some of its elasticity and volume. This can lead to wrinkles and sagging in lots of areas of the body. Because of their weight, the breasts can be especially vulnerable to sagging. Sagging breasts can be very demoralizing and often rob women of their confidence. However, there is a way to resolve these issues: a mastopexy, more commonly known as breast lift, here in Montreal. What the procedure achieves: Improved shape With a breast lift, your surgeon removes excess skin and reshapes the breast tissue in order to achieve a rounder and more pleasing breast shape with less sagging. Your surgeon may also be able to reposition your nipples so that they no longer point downward. Size considerations A breast lift does not alter the size of your breasts. However, a breast lift can be combined with either breast reduction or breast implants, depending…

Can Breast Reconstruction Be Done After a Mastectomy?

Yes, breast reconstruction is possible after a mastectomy, and there are a variety of methods which address the different conditions that a breast may be in after it has been treated for breast cancer. Reconstruction after mastectomy is a path that many women have gone through before, so your surgeon will be going in with lots of knowledge to help restore the breast to its former condition. The timing of the mastectomy and reconstruction Immediate reconstruction combines the mastectomy and reconstruction into one lengthened procedure. Not all cases are suited to this choice, such as when the breast tumor is very large. In those cases, the doctor focuses on the cancer treatment first, completes the mastectomy and adjuvant therapy, and then proceeds with reconstruction. Adjuvant therapy includes: chemotherapy hormonal therapy radiation therapy trastuzumab It’s possible to have the reconstruction either before or after the adjuvant therapy, but if you’re going to wait…

6 Things You Didn’t Expect About Breast Implant Recovery

Since you are reading this article, chances are that you have been thinking about undergoing breast augmentation with me in Montreal, and you probably have already done some research about this procedure. However, there are a few things you may not have learned in your research about what can happen during your recovery from a breast implant surgery. To give you a better understanding of what to expect after your surgery, we’re taking a look at 6 surprising aspects of breast implant recovery. The level of post-op pain and discomfort is relative. You may have read that recovery from a breast implant involves pain. As with any surgery, it is normal to experience pain and discomfort afterwards. However, the duration and intensity of pain during breast augmentation recovery varies depending on the individual and the type of surgery done. Different people heal differently. For instance, some doctors have found that…

What Is Double Bubble?

Despite its somewhat lighthearted name, double bubble is an unsettling complication that sometimes worries my Montreal breast augmentation patients. This complication generally happens after a breast augmentation surgery in which the implants are placed behind the pectoral muscle rather than in front of it (known as a sub-muscular or an “unders” placement). Why does a double bubble develop? This complication is most likely to occur when the patient already has a significant sagging of the breast tissue or her breasts are tuberous (a congenital abnormality where breasts don’t develop normally), when the implants are too heavy and/or not properly placed (IE, they’re too high). If the implant is too heavy or improperly placed, the breast tissue sags below the implant, which creates a look of two separate breast creases. In other words, the implant falls below the breast which produces the double bubble effect. One “bubble” is caused by the…
