Looking to reshape your breast with a Breast Lift Plastic Surgery procedure? Breast lift surgery enhances the youthful appearance of the breast and improves the contour as well. A breast lift (also known as “mastopexy”) is the process of using plastic cosmetic surgery to improve a woman’s breast contour by lifting and reshaping the breasts, giving a more shapely and youthful appearance. A common cosmetic problem addressed by a breast lift is the sagging of the breasts. The medical term for this sagging is breast ptosis. Breast sagging is a normal occurrence. The main unavoidable causes of this sagging are gravity, time(aging), and large breasts. Breast ptosis may be further magnified by pregnancy, breastfeeding, decrease in skin elasticity, and weight loss.
Different Types of Breast Lifts
Circumvertical Breast Lift – A circumvertical breast lift has an incision around the nipple (areola) and a vertical incision extending from the bottom of the areola down to just above the inframammary fold. (Also known as the lollipop incision.)
Wise Pattern (Anchor) Breast Lift – A wise pattern (anchor) breast lift has an incision around the nipple (areolar) and a vertical incision from the areola down to the inframammary crease, and an incision in the crease underneath the breast.
During a breast lift surgery, excess skin is removed and the breast tissue and nipples are elevated to a higher position on the chest wall. The insertion of a breast implant may or may not be advisable during the procedure, and can be employed with each of the lifts mentioned above.
Your cosmetic surgeon will evaluate your medical history and your end result goals, examine you, and in consultation with you help you decide which lift would best meet your goals.
