During your breast lift procedure, Dr. Mele will remove excess skin from the lower portion of your breast to contour and lift the breast. The type of incision will depend on how much lifting is needed. Incisions may be confined to a small, circular incision around the areola when a little lift is needed, an anchor shaped incision on the lower breast to provide maximum lifting, or something in between. Excess skin and tissue is removed, while the deep dermis is preserved to act as internal support. The remaining tissue is lifted and tightened. The nipples and areola are often repositioned higher, on the front of the breasts. Nipples are not usually removed, but stay attached to the breast tissue to maintain sensation.
There many different breast lift procedures. Some have small scars, and can lift a small amount. Others can reposition the entire breast, and require longer incisions. Here is a list of the five most frequently performed breast lift procedure:
Breast lifts can be combined with breast augmentation when it is desirable to both add volume and lift the breast.
