USEFUL INFORMATION ABOUT BREAST LIFTS AD*
How is a Breast Lift Actually Performed?
The facts about the procedure:
- The surgeon will excise (remove) excess breast skin and move the areola and nipple to a higher position on the breast;
- if the areolae have been stretched by age, breastfeeding or pregnancy then it can be reduced at this stage;
- any skin that was above the areola is moved downwards and sutured together under the skin to reshape the areolae and breasts;
- excess skin is removed and the incisions are closed up; this tightens the skin. There are also sutures placed in the deeper breast tissue to help to maintain the new shape while you heal;
- your scars will often be hidden underneath the breast, but there may be some visible around the areolae and the top halves of the breasts;
- your areolae and nipples will be kept attached to underlying tissue, which preserves sensation and usually the ability to breastfeed.
Occasionally a surgeon will be able to avoid making a horizontal incision beneath the breast, and/or the vertical one that runs from the areolae to the breast crease. Many women who have breast lifts in Manchester by Gary Ross ask about these techniques and are happy with their outcomes.
It’s not always possible to avoid scarring, of course, and here are the options for your incisions – and the subsequent scarring:
The anchor technique
The doughnut lift
The crescent lift
