Breast Lift At a Glance
WHAT IS A BREAST LIFT?
A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to raise and reshape the breasts. During breast lift surgery, the sagging excess skin and fat are removed, and the breast is raised and lifted to a more natural shape. The nipples and areolas (pigmented areas around the nipples), are repositioned to a higher level so the nipples point forward. The result is more uplifted, perky and youthful looking breasts. There are, however, associated scars that accompany the procedure, which are necessary to lift the breasts and give it a more natural shape. We try to minimize the scarring with our unique techniques.

There are many types of breast lifts and each is customized to fit the needs of each individual person. One type is called the vertical lift. The attached video is of a patient who had marked distortion of her breasts after a prior breast augmentation performed elsewhere. We repaired the problem via a vertical lift. This video gives you an idea of what is involved in performing a vertical lift. The results reveal a vertical scar placed below the nipples. Normally, this scar is more vertical but is adjusted according to the patients’ anatomy, as in this patient whose scar runs a bit toward the side.
TRANSVERSE/VERTICAL & WISE PATTERN LIFT
Other types of lifts may involve moving the nipples and/or making incisions in the lower fold of the breasts plus another one up and down from below the nipple to the fold. The most common type is called a Wise pattern lift. Another is called a Transverse/Vertical lift, and is essentially the lower part of a Wise pattern lift. As depicted in this video, it involves removing the excess tissue in the lower part of the breast to reposition and center the nipple in the middle of the implant without really moving the nipples.
