Pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight loss and ageing can take a toll on the shape and volume of a woman’s breasts, leaving them appearing saggy and deflated. Dr. Demianczuk of Pacific Plastic Surgery is one of the best rated breast lift surgeon in Vancouver with over 20 years experience. A breast lift uses a tightening technique to lift the breasts to a higher position on the chest wall. It creates an elevated appearance, as well as corrects the size and placement of the nipple-areolar complexes. Every breast lift case is unique.
Following a thorough assessment, Dr. Demianczuk will decide which technique and incision approach will garner the most desirable outcome. If there is significant loss of breast tissue, a conservatively sized breast implant, or the patients own fat may be added (via fat transfer) to optimize the volume of the breast. The type of incision used during a breast lift procedure will vary depending on the degree of lift and whether implants will be placed during the surgery.

The Surgical Experience
Breast lift surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and is considered an outpatient procedure. Operative time in most cases is between 2-3 hours. Recovery following a breast lift will vary depending on whether it was a stand-alone surgery or in conjunction with another body-contouring procedure. Most patients are able to resume their normal work schedules within 7 days. Exercise will be a gradual process. Most women are able to resume their normal exercise routines within 4-6 weeks.
The average cost for a breast lift is about $13,000-$15,000. These costs will vary depending on the extent of the surgery. If breast implants or fat grafting is done in combination with the breast lift, the total cost will increase.
Frequently Asked Questions
Breast lift or implants?
During the consultation, Dr Demianczuk will discuss whether a breast lift, breast augmentation, or a combination of both will attain the best results. Attention will also be made to improve any pre surgical asymmetry. Every patient presents with unique needs and preferences, and these will be adhered to in providing the ideal post surgical shape.
Will there be scars?
There is no way to avoid making the necessary incisions to complete a breast lift procedure; therefore, some scarring will result from this procedure. Every effort is made during surgery to minimize scarring. Most women feel that the breast contour that results following a breast lift procedure is worth the scars left behind. During the consultation, Dr Demianczuk and his staff will provide detailed post-operative scar care instructions, including use of silicone gel, skin creams, and possibly post operative laser treatment.
Can I combine this with a breast reduction?
Yes. Breast reduction surgery may also be combined with a breast lift to help a patient achieve the size and shape she desires.
