Breast Lift Results
A breast lift is a reshaping procedure that does not use a breast implant. Your surgeon will adjust the skin and tissue of the breast and relocate the nipple-areola complex so the breast looks more youthful and attractive. In the ideal patient, the results are very satisfying. A breast lift – or mastopexy – is a procedure that tightens and lifts the breasts. There are many variants on the procedure that can be used to achieve this goal, the most common being a “vertical” approach that results in a lollipop shaped scar.
How It’s Done
There are many proposed alternatives that use the term “breast lift”. The most reliable procedures result in a scar that is shaped like a lollipop or an anchor. A breast lift doesn’t add to the top of the breast, it only shapes the bottom. Breast lifts are ideal for patients who have smaller breasts with good skin quality and don’t want breast implants.
Breast lifting procedures do not add volume or fullness to the breast. It’s actually not a true “lift” as much as it is an illusion created by elevation of the nipples. Far more common is a breast lift with implant combination. The addition of breast implant can dramatically improve breast shape and it is the only option to add breast fullness up top where it is most desired. For the larger breast, it’s better to actually remove breast tissue and make the breast smaller than to simply “lift” the breast. It’s important to avoid the many “lifting” procedures that some surgeons offer that really don’t lift at all (Benelli lift, internal lift and others).
If you have decided for yourself that you don’t want breast implants, a breast lift or small breast reduction is the best way to rejuvenate the deflated, saggy breast. For some, a little education on the benefits of breast implants is all that is needed to see their value in creating beautiful breasts.
