Breast Lift Surgery Can Correct
- Mild, moderate, or severe breast sagging
- Pendulous breasts
- Downward-pointing areolas
- Downward-pointing nipples that hang below the breast crease
- Diminished breast firmness
CandidatesThe best candidates for breast lift surgery are healthy with no major medical conditions. They should also be non-smokers with realistic expectations about the results. It is best for women to wait until they have finished having children before undergoing a breast lift, as future pregnancies could compromise the results of the breast lift procedure.
ProcedureDr. Barlow will perform your breast lift using one of the following surgical techniques:
- Crescent Lift: Ideal for the correction of slight breast sagging, the crescent lift involves a crescent-shaped incision around the nipple. This is the least invasive option for a breast lift and provides the most subtle results. A small amount of tissue is removed, and scarring is inconspicuous.
- Benelli Lift: Ideal for the correction of mild sagging and slight nipple asymmetry, the Benelli lift removes a doughnut-shaped amount of tissue from around the nipple. Scarring is relatively inconspicuous, and the breasts can be raised and made to appear more symmetrical.
- Lollipop Lift: Ideal for the correction of stretched nipples and moderate breast sagging, the lollipop lift makes a lollipop-shaped incision that circles the nipple and extends vertically downward to the breast crease. This technique removes excess tissue to lift low-hanging breasts.
- Anchor Lift: Ideal for the correction of severe breast sagging, this technique combines a lollipop incision with a horizontal incision along the breast crease. The anchor lift offers the most extensive correction and lift for severe breast sagging.
