Breast Lift in Ottawa by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Are your breasts sagging or hanging lower on your chest than you like? Do your breasts look deflated and less youthful than before? A breast lift is the most popular procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts to a higher, more youthful position on the chest.
Many women find that pregnancy, weight loss, and the natural effects of aging cause their breasts to become saggy and flattened. A breast lift removes excess skin and tissue to lift and reshape the breasts. This procedure enhances cleavage and creates a beautiful new upper body contour.
After surgery, most women find their clothing fits much better and feel more comfortable in form-fitting sweaters, tank tops, t-shirts, blouses, and dresses.

What is a Breast Lift?
There are three different types of popular breast lift procedures that raise and reshape the breasts.
Dr. MacArthur will discuss the best surgical plan based on your anatomy and aesthetic goals. Operations with shorter scars provide less lift, while operations with longer scars result in a more dramatic change. The goal is to choose a lift with minimal post-operative scarring while providing the proper amount of lift.
The aesthetics (shape, size, and position) of your nipples and areolas can also be improved during surgery.
Will A Breast Lift Increase The Size of My Breasts?
A breast lift will not increase the size of your breasts. This procedure provides more lift and cleavage for a perkier, more youthful profile and improved shape.
During surgery, Dr. MacArthur reshapes and tightens skin and breast tissue to lift the breasts. This procedure may slightly decrease breast size. Most patients undergo breast augmentation with implants with their lift for optimal results.
How Much Does A Breast Lift Cost in Ottawa, Ontario?
Breast lift surgery typically starts at $12,000.
You will get an exact quote during your consultation with Dr. Ian MacArthur. Your existing anatomy, desired aesthetic results, and unique surgical requirements will determine the exact cost of surgery.
What kind of scars can I expect after a breast lift?
Scarring is a normal part of the healing process after surgery. The extent and visibility of scars depend on the specific type of lift performed and your body's healing process.
Dr. MacArthur will place incision lines according to your unique surgical needs and existing anatomy. Dr. MacArthur will discuss the placement of your incision lines during your initial consultation. Post-surgery, scars will continue to fade and smooth out over time.
Patients go home with a bandage over their chest to remain in place for one week.
What is Recovery Like?
Breast lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, which means you can go home after surgery. Patients typically require 1-2 weeks off work and should avoid heavy lifting for a few weeks. Dr. MacArthur will recommend a support bra to improve your comfort through the recovery process.
Full recovery can take several weeks to a few months. Every patient will get specific post-surgery care instructions directly from Dr. Ian MacArthur.
Will A Breast Lift Affect My Ability To Breast Feed?
Most women can still breastfeed after surgery. Some surgical techniques may prevent breastfeeding if the nipples are removed and replaced with a free nipple graft. Please discuss breastfeeding with Dr. Ian MacArthur during your consultation for more detailed information.
Does Ontario Health Pay For Breast Lift Surgery?
Ontario Health does not consider a lift medically necessary. Therefore, they typically do not cover the cost. Patients are responsible for covering cosmetic surgery costs when getting surgery with Dr. MacArthur at New Age.
Can I get implants or a reduction with my Breast Lift?
Most women opt for breast implants or a reduction with a lift to achieve the best aesthetic results.
How long after pregnancy should I wait before getting Surgery?
You should be at least several months postpartum and finished with breastfeeding. Your breasts should have returned to their average size post-pregnancy.
How will my breasts feel after Surgery?
What happens if I gain weight after surgery?
Significant weight gain can cause your breasts to grow and may affect the results of your surgery.
What happens if I lose weight after a breast lift?
How Long Will My Results Last?
Will I lose sensation in my nipples?
How can I maintain My results?
Am I A Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?
During your consultation, you will have a comprehensive breast evaluation and medical history to determine if you are fit for surgery.
Your surgery will take place at the hospital as day surgery. The surgery generally takes 1 to 3 hours under general anesthesia.
