Breast Lift Vancouver, BC
A breast lift is also known as a mastopexy, and is an excellent procedure to help recreate the appearance and feel of a youthful breast. Gravity is affecting all of us as we age, as well as the fact that pregnancy, breast feeding, change in skin elasticity, and weight loss can all greatly influence the appearance of your breast. Despite the best efforts to exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle, there are some elements to our bodies that we are unable to change. A breast lift removes excess skin from the breast and tightens the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the breast contour, restoring a youthful look in proportion with your body, and this can help rejuvenate your figure with a youthful, firmer, uplifted breast. When desired, this often involves reducing the size of the areola, as this can become stretched over time with the effects of pregnancy and breast feeding.
When there is both a desire to lift the breast and increase the fullness, this is commonly combined with a breast augmentation to achieve these goals. Dr. Seal would be happy to discuss the details of these procedures with you and help you decide if they may be right for you to achieve your individual aesthetic breast goals.

Breast Lift Considerations
A breast lift removes excess skin from the breast and tightens the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the breast contour improving the position and shape of the breasts. There are several techniques that can be used to perform a breast lift successfully, and Dr. Seal would be happy to discuss these with you, and which ones may be possible depending on your breast appearance and overall goals. One of Dr. Seal’s goals for your breast surgery is to make your incisions as unnoticeable as possible. The surgery cannot be done without creating some scars on the breast. These are strategically placed to help hide them as best as possible, and continue to fade over the first year after your surgery. All of the important things you can do to help optimize your incisions and results are reviewed during your follow-up visits.
What to expect during your recovery
Breast Lift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure at a private surgical facility. You will be able to go home after the procedure to relax and recover. In general, most women recover well over the first week, and we provide you with all the medication and supplies to help you through this process. When thinking about time off work, or away from social commitments, 1 week is usually a safe window of down time. You will have some comfort garments provided to help you through the recovery period, and transition into a supportive bra in the first 1-2 weeks. Heavy lifting and strenuous exercise should be avoided for 4 weeks. Dr. Seal will see you in the office over the recovery period to review all the important information with you and ensure you are doing well. The final results can appear gradually over the first few months. The incisions continue to fade over the first year, and all the important things you can do to help optimize your results are reviewed during your follow-up visits.
