Breast lift (mastopexy) and breast uplift surgery is a common procedure for women with sagging breast tissue and general loss of breast shape, especially after pregnancy.
A breast lift is a single-step procedure, which changes the breast shape by removal of excess skin. It may include downsizing the nipple-areola complex as well if patient have very large areolas and it is very often combined with breast implants in cases of generalized loss of volume.
Breast lift: Surgical techniques and scars
There are various established techniques in breast lift/ uplift surgery. The choice of the right method, tailored to you, depends on your anatomy, the size of the breasts, degree of sagging, laxity of the skin, position of the nipple etc. These factors will be addressed by your surgeon in the decision process. Furthermore, the placement of breast implants may sometimes form an integral part of the operation, refilling the breast and resulting in an better silhouette. Depending on your case, we will create minimal scars whenever possible.
Light Breast Ptosis (sagging): Scars are around the areola and, if necessary, with a vertical extension (lollipop shape).
Moderate Breast Ptosis (sagging): When a moderate degree of sagging is present, we use a vertical scar technique or with a small extension of the scar into the inframammary fold. The scars are, as described above, in a lollipop shape, with an additional short scar in submammary fold (short anchor or inverted-T).
Severe Breast Ptosis (sagging): When a more excessive degree sagging is present, we use a vertical scar may need a longer extension of the scar into the inframammary fold forming a full-length inverted-T scar.
My breasts look like I have some perfect silicone implants but I don’t. Absolutely love them.
