Montreal Plastic Surgeon Reveals When Breast Lift with Implants Should Be Considered

Over time, many women notice a deterioration in the shape and firmness of their breasts, as they begin to droop and sag. The definition is lost and nipples may point downward.


According to Montreal plastic surgeon Dr. Arash Izadpanah, MD, a mastopexy (breast lift) may achieve some upper pole fullness, but the procedure performed by itself will not increase the overall size of the breasts. Likewise, a breast augmentation can often produce a minor lift, but implants alone cannot correct considerable ptosis (drooping). For these reasons, he notes that a breast lift combined with breast augmentation may be necessary to achieve optimal results for certain women seeking to rejuvenate the appearance of their breasts.

In addition to simultaneously lifting and enlarging the breasts, Dr. Arash Izadpanah reveals that benefits of a breast lift with implants can also include an enhanced projection and contour, an elevated position for the nipple-areolar complex, and a reduction in the overall size of the areola. At his practice, the Montreal plastic surgeon says candidates for the procedure typically include patients who:

  • Want to have their breasts lifted while also increased in size
  • Are interested in breast augmentation but have a significant degree of ptosis
  • Are interested in mastopexy (breast lift) but want more fullness than a breast lift can achieve
  • Have lost breast volume and projection due to significant weight loss, pregnancy, and/or some other circumstance


When breast lift is combined with breast augmentation, Dr. Arash notes that the breast augmentation is performed first, followed by the mastopexy (breast lift). Once the implant has been inserted and positioned correctly in the implant pocket under the muscle, excess skin is removed, and the breast mound is reshaped around the implant. Based on the new breast proportions, the nipple is then repositioned, and the size of areola is reduced. Dr. Arash says incisions made during mastopexy with breast augmentation will typically depend on the specific breast lift technique employed. Most of the scars are hidden along natural lines and creases of the breasts, and even low-cut clothing or swimwear will often easily conceal any potentially visible scarring.
