Depending on the severity of breast sagging, Dr. Chen Lee may recommend different treatment plans to improve breast shape and appearance.

For mild to moderate sagging (Grade 1) or glandular ptosis, breast augmentation alone may be suggested, considering factors like breast tissue and nipple position.

In cases of moderate to severe sagging (Grade 2), a vertical breast lift may be advised, possibly with implants if there’s insufficient breast tissue.

For complex cases such as breast asymmetry or significant sagging (Grade 3), an anchor lift may be recommended, with an option for implants depending on the patient’s goals.

Starting fees for the mentioned procedures above:

  • Breast augmentation: $9,800 before taxes
  • Breast lift without implants: $9,800 before taxes.
  • Breast lift with implants: $14,000 before taxes.

Breast ptosis, commonly known as breast sagging, is categorized into different grades based on the position of the nipple-areola complex relative to the inframammary fold:

  • Pseudoptosis (Glandular Ptosis): Nipples are positioned correctly, but the breast drops below the fold, giving a sagging appearance.
  • Grade 1: Mild ptosis where the nipple is at the level of the inframammary fold.
  • Grade 2: Moderate ptosis where the nipple descends below the inframammary fold but remains above the lowest edge of the breast.
  • Grade 3: Severe ptosis where the nipple is positioned at the lowest point of the breast and often points downward.

These grades help classify the severity of breast sagging and guide treatment decisions for individuals seeking breast enhancement procedures.

Embarking on a breast lift with implants journey offers numerous benefits, including:

  1. Restoration of youthful contours and firmness.
  2. Increased volume and fullness in the breast.
  3. Enhanced confidence and sense of femininity.

Together, these advantages contribute to a rejuvenated appearance and a newfound sense of self-assurance.

Determining candidacy for a breast lift with implants involves consideration of various factors. Candidates typically include individuals experiencing breast ptosis (sagging). It’s important to have realistic expectations and understand that while this procedure can improve breast shape and volume, it may not address all concerns or achieve perfection. Also, candidates should be in good overall health, with no uncontrolled medical conditions that could impair healing. Consulting with a qualified plastic surgeon is important to assess candidacy, discuss expectations, and explore options to ensure the best possible outcome.

When considering a breast lift procedure, it’s essential to explore the various types of breast implants available, each offering unique characteristics.

Two primary options include saline implants and silicone implants. Saline implants are filled with a saltwater solution, while silicone implants contain silicone gel. Each type has its own set of benefits and considerations, with factors such as desired outcomes and personal preferences influencing the choice.

Your consultation with the surgeon will play a pivotal role in selecting the type, size, and shape of implants that align with your anatomy and aesthetic objectives.

Navigating the Procedure

Preparing for breast lift surgery involves several steps to ensure a smooth and successful experience:

  1. Follow preoperative instructions: Adhere to your surgeon’s guidelines regarding medications, diet, and lifestyle modifications.
  2. Arrange transportation: Plan for transportation to and from the surgical facility, as you will be unable to drive yourself home after the procedure.
  3. Prepare your home environment: Set up a comfortable resting area and arrange for assistance with daily tasks to facilitate postoperative recovery.
  4. Discuss concerns with your surgeon.
  5. Establish realistic expectations: Discuss the expected recovery timeline and outcomes.

Breast lift with implants procedures encompass a range of surgical techniques, including the periareolar incision, which minimizes scarring by encircling the areola, and the vertical incision, also known as the lollipop lift, extending from the bottom of the areola to the inframammary fold.

For more severe cases of breast ptosis, surgeons may utilize the inverted-T or anchor incision, involving an additional horizontal incision along the inframammary fold.These techniques, combined with various implant placement methods such as subglandular and submuscular placement, allow for customized outcomes tailored to each patient’s unique anatomy and aesthetic preferences.

By employing these surgical approaches, breast lift with implants procedures can effectively improve breast shape, volume, and symmetry, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Dr. Chen Lee’s patients who undergo breast lifts with implants are typically treated as day surgery patients at the Metropolitan Surgery Center in Montreal. Here’s what you can expect:

Surgery Centre:

  • Plan to spend half a day at the center.
  • Arrive punctually at the surgery center.
  • Our nursing team will warmly welcome and prepare you for surgery.
  • Breast lift surgery is typically conducted under general anesthesia. To ensure a safe anesthetic, it’s essential to arrive at the surgery center in a fasted state (i.e., nothing by mouth for 8 hours before surgery).
  • The breast lift procedure usually lasts between 2:00 to 2:30 hours.

Recovery Room:

  • Following surgery, you will be transferred to a recovery room until the anesthesia wears off.
  • After waking up, you’ll spend 1-2 hours in an observation unit before being discharged home.
  • Before leaving, a supportive bra will be provided for your comfort.

Your safety is our utmost concern:

  • You must be accompanied home by a trusted friend or family member.
  • We recommend that they be present in your home for the early days following a breast lift.

Our office will regularly call to check on your progress at home. Your first office visit, scheduled 4-7 days after surgery, will involve changing wound dressings by your plastic surgeon.

Following a breast lift with implants procedure, a smooth recovery is key. Expect discomfort, swelling, and bruising initially. Follow postoperative instructions closely, take prescribed medications, wear a supportive bra, and avoid strenuous activities. Rest and gentle movement are vital for proper healing. Gradually increase activity levels as advised and attend follow-up appointments. Although some patients may feel ready to resume light activities within a week, it’s crucial to recognize recovery process usually takes around 4 to 6 weeks. Furthermore, it’s important to manage expectations as visible results may not be fully realized until several months post-surgery.


Breast lift with implants-finance - the cost for the procedure

$165.25 + taxes

The first consultation for a breast lift with implants is an important opportunity to establish a solid patient-surgeon relationship. During this meeting, Dr. Chen Lee will conduct an examination, offer personalized recommendations, discuss potential risks, and address any concerns you may have. It’s a chance for you to evaluate and communicate to ensure your goals and expectations are understood.

$14,000 + taxes

The base price of a breast lift with implants in Montreal is quoted as a “global fee.” The price quote includes costs of the surgeon, anesthesiologist, nurses, breast implants, office visits during the first postoperative year, operating room, and surgical facility fees. Revisions and touch-up surgeries are not included in the initial breast lift with implant quotation. If general anesthesia is necessary, you will have to pay for the substantial costs associated with a surgical revision. Minor touch-up surgery under local anesthesia can often be performed at minimal expense.

Surgeries are payable in cash, certified checks (bank drafts), or Interac. We also work with an independent credit company that offers financial payment plans for cosmetic surgery procedures. However, you should be aware that the interest rates and administration fees of this specialized company are higher than traditional financial institutions. It is often better to negotiate a loan through your personal bank or financial institution. We encourage you to do your homework and compare the true financial cost of these various financial options.

Scheduling your breast augmentation is a 3-step process.

Step 1: Reservation Date for Surgery

Our office staff works diligently to schedule surgeries to your availability and preference. However, operating room resources are precious and a financial commitment is necessary to reserve a dedicated time. Half of the surgical fee is due upon reservation of dedicated operating room time for your breast augmentation. Full payment is due 2 weeks before the day of surgery.

Step 2: Breast Implant Sizing

Once your surgery is scheduled, our office will work with you to choose the ideal breast implant size for your body. This often requires several in-office visits where you are able to place implant sizers under clothing to simulate the results expected. It often helps to have a family member or friend present during your breast implant sizing visits. Breast implant sizes must be chosen well before surgery so that we have sufficient time to order and have your preferred breast implant sizes available at the surgery.

Step 3: General Health Evaluation

Breast lift with implants is performed under general anesthesia. To ensure your safety, a general physical examination and laboratory tests are performed. During your preoperative visit, our surgeon will obtain standardized medical photos and provide general instructions on preparation for surgery and pain management.


It is natural to have concerns and questions regarding breast implant safety. Dr. Chen Lee is committed to helping you understand the risks to make an informed decision about breast lift with implants.

Ideal candidates for a breast lift with implants are individuals who experience sagging breasts (ptosis) and desire increased volume and improved breast shape. They should be in overall good health and have realistic expectations.

Breast ptosis is characterized by the downward displacement of the breast in relation to the inframammary fold. Plastic surgeons commonly use a classification system based on the position of the nipple relative to the inframammary fold to assess the severity of ptosis. The classifications are as follows:

  • Pseudoptosis (Glandular Ptosis): Nipples are positioned correctly, but the breast drops below the fold, giving a sagging appearance.
  • Grade 1 (Mild): The nipple descends to the level of the inframammary fold.
  • Grade 2 (Moderate): The nipple descends below the inframammary fold but remains above the lowest edge of the breast.
  • Grade 3 (Severe): The nipple is situated at the lowest point of the breast and often points downward.

Consulting with a plastic surgeon can provide a professional evaluation and guidance on the severity of your condition and the appropriate course of action.

No, but a breast lift with implants can tighten the skin, which may improve upper and lateral stretch marks. However, it’s important to note that while the procedure can enhance breast shape and position, it will not eliminate stretch marks. Discussing your concerns and expectations with your plastic surgeon will provide a clearer understanding of the potential outcomes.

While the thought of getting a breast lift with implants is exciting, it’s important to know about the risks and possible issues. Any surgery involving general anesthesia has some risks to your overall health, although they’re rare. In extremely rare cases, there could even be a risk of death.

A list of possible complications specific to breast lift with implants includes unevenness, changes in shape, infection, skin infection, nipple necrosis, bleeding, slow healing, needing another surgery, being able to see or feel the implants, discomfort, numbness, scars, tightness around the implants, implant rupture, implants moving out of place and no guarantee of getting the exact size you want in the end.

While breast implants are designed to last for many years, the exact long-term durability remains scientifically undefined. Although some patients may assume that their breasts are permanently augmented with a single surgery, it’s important to understand that implantable synthetic prostheses, including breast implants, should not be considered lifetime medical devices. Like other synthetic implantable medical devices such as heart valves and orthopedic joints, breast implants can potentially malfunction or fail over time.

For a person who has a breast lift with implants, screening is still necessary and encouraged. Common methods for detecting breast cancer include mammography, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Mammograms can still be performed, however, modified techniques such as breast compression to enhance the view of the breast tissue is often necessary for an effective breast mammogram. To better plan, your breast investigations, the physician managing your breast cancer prevention routine should be made aware of your breast lift with implants.
