Breast Reduction and Lift Surgery near Montreal
What Is Breast Reduction and Lift Surgery?
Breast reduction and breast lift (mastopexy) are two procedures to reshape the breasts that are often performed together. Breast reduction involves removing a portion of the fat gland and reshaping the breast, while a breast lift aims at reshaping the breast by removing excess skin.
Practiced for many years, both of these procedures aim at improving the shape and symmetry of the breasts. Breast reduction facilitates daily activities, including practicing sports, while the breast lift is a cosmetic procedure.
Your provincial health insurance may cover costs for breast reduction. Discuss this with your surgeon to learn more on the subject.
