How to Get The Most Out Of Your Breast Lift Consultation

  • January 21, 2019

Are you considering a breast lift? Here’s what to expect from your consultation and how you can work with your plastic surgeon to ensure the safest and most satisfactory results.

One of the most frequently requested cosmetic surgeries in Canada is a mastopexy (breast lift), a procedure that is designed to reshape the breast and create a more lifted appearance. When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, a breast lift has many benefits, including:

  • It’s very safe
  • You’ll enjoy natural looking and long lasting results
  • You’ll have a more aesthetically pleasing appearance
  • It leads to greater self-confidence and quality of life

Breast Lift Vs Breast Augmentation

When deciding if a breast lift is right for you, it’s important to understand the difference between a mastopexy and breast augmentation. While the former will bring your breasts to a higher position, it WILL NOT increase the size of your breasts.

For patients who are looking for both enhanced size and position, it’s often beneficial to combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation.

4 Signs a Breast Lift Is Right For You

While your plastic surgeon has the experience and expertise to determine if a breast lift is right for you, you should also be aware of what this cosmetic procedure can address, to help you become a more informed patient.

If you experience one or the following concerns, you may be a suitable candidate for a breast lift:

  • Drooping breasts
  • Downward-pointing nipples
  • Enlarged areolas
  • Uneven breast positions

Age & Breast Lifts

While there is typically no age limit for a breast lift, candidates must be in good general and mental health, and must have realistic expectations of the outcomes of their surgery. In addition, maintaining a healthy weight can ensure you enjoy longer-lasting results, so if you are planning a pregnancy, or major weight loss, it’s best to discuss this with your plastic surgeon.

What Will Be Discussed During My Breast Lift Consultation?

If you are considering a breast lift procedure, the first step you should take is to book a consultation with a plastic surgeon. In order to make the most out of this crucial meeting, it’s important for patients to understand what will be discussed.

Your doctor may want to talk about:

  • Any allergies you may have, especially any known reaction to certain drugs.
  • Your medical history (including previous and current conditions)
  • Your family’s medical history (such as whether you’ve had any breast cancer diagnoses in your family)
  • Your lifestyle (this includes daily habits such as smoking, alcohol intake, or other drug intake)
  • Your risk of scarring
  • Your breast health (they may ask if you’ve had any biopsies or mammograms)
  • Your expectations for the breast lift. This will help them design the right procedure to meet all your goals.

How You Can Contribute To Your Breast Lift Procedure

Following your consultation, your doctor will begin planning your mastopexy. At this time, he/she will most likely:

  • Discuss how they would want to perform the surgery.
  • Explain what results you can expect from this approach (likely using before and after photos of previous patients).
  • Talk about all the potential risks or complications of this particular procedure.
  • Explain his/her choice of anesthetic to be used for the procedure and any other specifics.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions

If you have any concerns or preferences regarding your breast lift, you must bring them up at this time. Working together with your plastic will ensure that they can develop a fully customized breast lift procedure that can meet all your aesthetic goals.
