Breast Lift in Winnipeg, MB

Breast Lift surgery raises and reshapes sagging breasts, which may have lost volume and firmness due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or the natural effects of gravity and aging.

The position of your nipple/areola complex — the darker skin around your nipples — will be repositioned higher on your breasts for a more youthful, perky appearance.

During Breast Lift surgery, loose, excess breast skin will be removed and Dr. Avi Islur will tighten your underlying supportive breast tissue to improve the shape of your breasts.

Breast Lift surgery will not increase the size of your breasts and will result in a ½ ‐1 cup size reduction just by simply tightening the skin. If you are interested in larger breasts with additional fullness in the upper pole of your breast, Breast Augmentation with implants or fat transfer can be performed with your Breast Lift for more dramatic results.

If you would like to decrease the size of your breasts, a Breast Reduction can be performed with your Breast Lift.

Is Breast Lift Surgery Right For Me?

If your breasts have lost their perky appearance and you would like to refresh the look of your breasts without a size increase, breast lift surgery is a great option for you. If you answer yes to any of the breast lift benefits listed below, you are a proper candidate for this procedure:

  • Your breasts are sagging
  • Your nipple is positioned too low on your breasts
  • Your areola — the dark skin around your nipple — is oversized
  • You have loose, stretchy skin due to loss of breast volume

How Is Breast Lift Surgery Performed?

There are three different surgical techniques and incision options for Breast Lift surgery. The different types of breast lifts vary according to how much skin needs to be removed.

The breast lift technique that Dr. Islur chooses for your surgery depends on your existing anatomy and aesthetic goals.

  • The Peri‐Areolar Technique for very mild breast sagging.
  • The Vertical Technique for mild to moderate breast sagging.
  • The Anchor Technique for moderate to severe breast sagging

With the Vertical and Anchor Techniques an “Auto-Augmentation” will be performed as part of the operation. During this procedure, your breast tissue is re-arranged to provide longer lasting shape and upper pole fullness to the breast.

Together, you and Dr. Avi Islur will review all of your options in detail to determine which type of Breast Lift is best for you.

01 The Anchor Technique

The Anchor Technique is used for moderate to severe breast sagging. This type of Breast Lift is also called The Inverted T. This is the most common type of Breast Lift surgery. This is a preferred technique for women who have lost a significant amount of weight resulting in excess skin and for severe volume loss following pregnancy and breastfeeding.

  • Your areola will be repositioned higher up on your breast.
  • Incisions will be made around the areola, down the middle, and along the base of
    your breast. The incisions will result in the shape of an upside‐down “T.”
  • The incisions for The Anchor Technique allow for the maximum removal of skin and
    shaping of the breast.
  • Often combined in combination with breast implants.
  • An auto‐augmentation where the deep layers of your breast tissue are sutured
    together and repositioned higher for new, beautifully shaped perky breasts is often performed.
  • Your scar will be in the shape of an upside‐down “T” from the base of your areola
    and along the base of your breast crease.

02 The Periareolar Technique

The Peri‐Areolar Technique is used for very mild breast sagging. Think of this procedure as a nipple/areola centralization procedure helping to centralize the nipple/areolar complex onto the breast mound.

  • Your areola will be repositioned higher up on your breast.
  • Incisions will be made around the border of your areola.
  • A circular‐shaped piece of your breast skin — the lighter skin around your areola —
    will be removed, and the size of the areola will be reduced.
  • Your scar will be hidden where your darker areola skin meets your lighter breast
  • Your breast lift surgery will be custom‐tailored to your unique needs. Individual
    results may vary.
  • This type of lift is frequently performed during breast augmentation with implant

03 The Vertical Technique

The Vertical Technique, also called the lollipop technique, is used for mild to moderate breast
sagging.

  • Your areola will be repositioned higher up on your breast.
  • Incisions will be made around the border of your areola and straight down towards
    the crease of your breast, resulting in a lollipop‐shaped scar.
  • Often combined in combination with Breast Augmentation with Implants
  • Your breast tissue will be repositioned and sutured in place to reshape your breasts.
  • You will have two scars. One scar will be hidden where your darker areola skin meets
    your lighter breast skin. Your second scar will go from the bottom of your areola straight down to  your breast crease.

What to Expect Before + After Your Breast Lift Surgery

At your consultation, Dr. Avi Islur will spend as much time as you need to discuss your breast lift surgery and will answer all of your questions. For your convenience, Dr. Avi Islur has provided answers to the most common questions he hears about breast lifts on our FAQ page.

Breast Lift Recovery

As with most aesthetic surgeries, you will need to take time to recover. The recovery period will be different for each patient depending on the extent of the surgery and the patient’s health.

You will have bandages on the area for the first few days. There will be swelling, discoloration, and bruising, but this should diminish in a week or two. You may return to work and resume daily activities after 1 week. Avoid any straining, bending, or lifting for 4‐6 weeks.

Full recovery can take up to 6‐8 weeks but most patients feel they are perfectly fine after 1‐2 weeks. It is important to note, everyone is unique and heals at their own pace.

Please view Dr. Avi Islur’s Post Operative Care Instructions for breast lift to get an idea of what you can expect after your surgery. Your breast lift surgery and recovery will be custom tailored to your unique needs, individual surgical results and recovery instructions may vary.

What are the Risks Involved?

You’ll be happy to know that Breast Lift surgery is considered low risk, although as with any surgery, there can be a reaction to the anesthetic. Surgical risks include but are not limited to bleeding, infection, delayed wound healing, widening of scars, and asymmetry with areola size and height.

During your consultation, Dr. Avi Islur and his expert medical team will clearly outline all of the necessary precautions you need to take, as well as any postoperative limitations you should follow.
