Dr. Bell performs breast lifts, also known as mastopexy, at his accredited surgical facility in Toronto. The goal of a breast lift is to raise and firm up the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. This reshapes and supports the new breast contour.
Rejuvenating Your Appearance With A Breast Lift
Over time, a woman’s breasts often change, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from such factors as pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight fluctuations. Aging, heredity, and, of course, gravity are all potential causes of this change.
A breast lift can revitalize your figure with a breast profile that is youthful and uplifted.
NOTE: Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast. If you want your breasts to look fuller or smaller, you might wish to discuss with Dr. Bell other surgical options of breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery at his accredited cosmetic surgical facility in Toronto

- One breast is lower than the other
- Your breasts have a flatter, elongated shape or are pendulous

- Use of current medications
- History of previous surgeries
- Any history of breast cancer in your family
- What you expect and the outcome you are hoping for
- The results of any mammograms or previous biopsies
- Any medical conditions or drug allergies you have, as well as any recent medical treatments
Your Breast Lift Procedure
