Breast Lift in Winnipeg, MB

Breast lift surgery is designed to raise, reshape and rebuild sagging breasts. This procedure is performed to lift your breasts which may have lost volume and firmness due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or the natural effects of gravity and aging.

Loose, excess breast skin will be removed and Dr. Islur will tighten your underlying supportive breast tissue to improve the shape of your breasts.

The position of your areola — the darker skin around your nipples — will be lifted up higher on your breasts for a youthful, perky appearance.

Breast lift surgery will not increase the size of your breasts. Breast augmentation can be combined with your breast lift surgery for more dramatic results.

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 different surgical techniques and incision options for breast lift surgery. The three most common breast lift techniques that Dr. Islur works with are: 1) The Anchor Technique, 2) The Peri-Areolar Technique and 3) The Vertical Technique.

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

01 The Anchor Technique

The Anchor Technique, also called The Inverted T, is the most common breast lift technique Dr. Islur performs. The Anchor Technique is used for moderate to severe breast sagging. 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.
  • The deep layers of your breast tissue can be sutured together for new, beautifully shaped perky breasts.
  • 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.
  • Your breast lift surgery will be custom tailored to your unique needs, individual results may vary.
