The Benefits of a Breast Lift in Mesa
Breast lift surgery helps elevate the breasts making them more symmetrical and more youthful. A breast lift in Mesa doesn’t necessarily increase fullness to the breasts, which is why many women combine it with a breast augmentation surgery. However, a breast lift does make the breasts appear fuller by removing excess skin and fat needed to raise the breasts. A Mesa breast lift improves the shape of the breasts. Below are the typical benefits patients experience with a breast lift:
- Breasts are lifted making them firmer and more symmetrical
- Breasts are more proportionate to the body frame
- Excess skin is removed to lift the breasts
- Nipple and areola are positioned higher on the breast
You can discuss your desired goals and know all of your options for enhancement of the breasts during your consultation with one of our board certified surgeons at our Scottsdale office.
Type of Incisions During a Breast Lift in Chandler
Here are the 4 types of incisions available during a Chandler breast lift surgery:
- Crescent incision – for a subtle change to the breasts with very little ptosis (droop). Your surgeon removes a small crescent shaped section of tissue from the area above your areola. This incision helps to lift the breasts.
- Concentric incision – also known as a donut lift is ideal for minor ptosis. A concentric incision is made around your areola which allows for a little more lift than what is possible with the crescent option.
- Vertical (lollipop) lift – this is ideal for medium ptosis. Your surgeon makes a concentric incision around your areola and then an additional incision that runs vertically down to the breast crease.
- Standard incision – this is also known as the anchor incision and is ideal for patients with a lot of ptosis. The incision is the same as the lollipop but has an additional incision that runs horizontally into the breast crease. It allows the surgeon to remove more skin to improve the breast shape.
Recovering from Breast Lift Surgery in Gilbert
Once the excess skin has been removed and your breasts have been reshaped, the rest of the skin is tightened for a more youthful appearance to the breasts and the incisions are then closed. Some of the lines from the incisions get concealed in the natural folds of your breasts, but some are visible on the surface of your breasts as well. Even though the lines from the incisions are permanent, they fade over time and become less visible. Most Gilbert women desire the smallest scar possible. However, it is important to understand that your surgeon recommends the type of incision required to meet your specific breast lift goals. It is very important to follow your surgeon’s advice and not reduce the desired result by demanding an unsuitable incision.
