There are several contributing circumstances that result in a woman wanting to enhance her look when it comes to her breasts. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, or even genes can cause breasts to not look as firm, perky, or aesthetically pleasing.
A breast lift can help get the look you’ve once had, or maybe even the look you’ve always wanted. Not only can a breast lift restore your figure, but it can also help your bra and swimsuit fit more comfortably…and more attractively. So what are the options when it comes to a breast lift?
If your breasts have minimal sagging this may be the technique for you. Using a small incision that goes half way around the top half of the edge of the areola. This is usually performed in addition to a breast augmentation and will leave minimal scarring.
Vertical (Lollipop) Lift:
This type of lift corrects more moderate sagging and can provide extensive reshaping. This technique is more commonly performed since it allows your surgeon to remove excess skin and reshape the breast with easily hidden scars. Two incisions are used here: one around the areola and one running vertically from the bottom of the areola to the inframammary fold (where your chest and breast meet), which creates the “lollipop” shape.
Inverted T Lift:
Named for the scar pattern along the base and down the middle of the breast, this is a classic technique used in cases where there has been significant weight loss that creates that extra, unwanted skin. It is also used in cases where women have experienced deflation of the breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
As will all things cosmetic wise, each person’s needs will vary. Since no two people are alike, not every person is going to want or need the same technique performed. The most important decision you will make regarding your breast lift is determining who your surgeon will be.
