It’s no secret that we love what we do at The Plastic Surgery Clinic. A really important part of that is ensuring that every patient who walks through our door receives the highest level of care possible backed by the surgical expertise to achieve a truly amazing result. Our doctors are committed to being the best plastic surgeons because we know that our patients deserve the best when they trust us with their health and their bodies.
Our surgeons stay up-to-date with the latest research in the field, learning about the latest developments in aesthetic surgery. But even more significantly, they actively contribute scientific research to the most highly regarded, peer reviewed surgical journals in the world. Working at the busiest plastic surgery practice in Canada, they have a wealth of experience to draw from to contribute significant research findings. It’s a rare and highly esteemed position to be in, and one they take very seriously.
To that end, we are proud to announce that four of their articles have been accepted for publication this year—truly an unprecedented number.
Their latest article, in the acclaimed Aesthetic Surgery Journal, details the technique they use to perform periareolar mastopexy (or breast lift with incision around the nipple) with sub-glandular breast augmentation (where the breast implant is placed between the pectoralis muscle and the breast tissue) in a single procedure. With experience performing this surgery 85 times since 2009, they share their findings from the past decade.
Significantly, they show that this operative technique is an ideal procedure for patients who want more volume in their breasts but present with mild to moderate nipple ptosis—in layman’s terms, sagging towards the nipple—and little excess skin in the lower pole of the breast below the areola. In this article, Drs. Lista, Ahmad and Austin review perioperative management, detailed steps of the procedure, its indications and utilization, and common minor complications they have encountered.
By sharing their skillful technique with doctors around the world, our surgeons will help improve outcomes for patients everywhere. They write more articles and book chapters, are invited to give more talks and international presentations, and receive more visiting international surgeons than any other practice in Canada. You can review the full article here.
We want all surgeons to be the best that they can be. And when they want to improve their skills, we couldn’t be more proud that our team is the one they turn to for the highest level of expertise.
