Dr. Robert Sleightholm specializes in a range of body shaping procedures, including breast lifts. He sometimes discusses breast lifts with patients as an effective alternative to breast augmentations, depending on their body types and desired outcomes. Some women become uncomfortable with sagging breasts, caused by aging, pregnancy and breastfeeding, or weight fluctuations. Others feel self-conscious about nipples that are oversized, undersized, or asymmetrical.

How Will Dr. Sleightholm Perform a Breast Lift?

A breast lift works with your natural breasts to enhance their appearance by:

  • Elevating sagging, slacking breasts to enhance their shape and make them appear fuller and firmer
  • Contouring your breasts to make them fuller and more youthful looking
  • Correcting the size and position of your areola

Some patients choose to undergo breast augmentation in conjunction with a breast lift.

Advice on Choosing the Right Cosmetic Surgeon from Dr. Robert Sleightholm

Dr. Sleightholm urges people considering this type of procedure to ask about a doctor’s credentials before discussing anything else. “Any doctor in Canada with a license to practice medicine can practice cosmetic surgery. It’s important to select a surgeon who is strictly dedicated to plastic and cosmetic surgery.”

Dr. Sleightholm notes that the surgeon should be a member of two professional organizations; The Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons (CSPS) and The Canadian Society of Aesthetic (Cosmetic) Plastic Surgeons (CSAPS), which are the only recognized Canadian professional bodies specializing in plastic and cosmetic surgery.
