To correct asymmetry, sagging or loss of firmness in the breasts, Dr Joseph Bou-Merhi performs an intervention called mastopexy in Montreal. A mastopexy is a breast lift that involves reducing excess skin and raising the bust. This results in more curvy breasts and a more graceful silhouette.
Objectives and Methods of Intervention
Most often practiced under general anesthesia, the breast lift is intended to reshape the breast. This involves raising the nipple and decreasing the areola, if any. After 2 hours, the operation should be completed and you can return home during the day. Bruises and swelling disappear within a few weeks. Patients return to work after 4 or 5 days and to sports after 2 or 3 weeks. It will take up to a year for healing to be complete. Follow Dr Bou-Merhi's recommendations before and after the operation to put all the chances of success on your side. Of course, if you have any concerns, do not hesitate to contact your plastic surgeon at Centre de Chirurgie Plastique de l’Île-des-Sœurs.
