Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation?
A breast lift elevates and reshapes the breasts, giving them a higher position and more youthful appearance. If a patient desires more volume, or needs more volume to improve the appearance and shape of the breast, breast implants may be added to the procedure. In some cases, breast implants alone can improve a very small degree of sagging. Dr. Strock uses his experience and expertise to recommend the best surgical approach in each case. Whether your breasts have lost volume after pregnancy or weight loss, or just have a low position, you may work with Dr. Strock to decide to combine a breast lift with breast augmentation.
Breast Lift Procedure
For patients who need a breast lift, Dr. Strock can enhance breast shape using incisions that alter the skin envelope and elevate the nipple to a position that’s more aesthetically pleasing in relation to the base of the breast. A patient’s aesthetic goals can often be accomplished using surgical approaches that limit the incisions and scarring compared to traditional breast lift techniques.
These approaches include:
- Periareolar lift: Dr. Strock makes the incisions around the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple). This can be an excellent option for patients with mildly low breast position. This is usually combined with implants.
- Vertical lift: In addition to the incision made around the areola, a second incision extends vertically down from the areola to the base of the breast. This is sometimes referred to as a “lollipop” lift, adds a powerful lift effect, and is appropriate for patients with low breast tissue and nipple position.
- Traditional lift: For breasts with very low breast tissue and nipple position, a horizontal incision made in the crease of the breast is added to the incisions described above. The shape of the incisions resembles an anchor, which is why this is often referred to as an “anchor lift.” This incision pattern allows for the greatest degree of tightening, lifting and reshaping.
