Breast Uplift Surgery Incision Types

Updated: Apr 27, 2023

Humans grow old, acquire and lose weight, get pregnant, give birth to children, breastfeed altering their breasts. When the condition improves, we become aware that our breasts are no longer as perky or "uplifted." As a result, they appear droopy.

You may wonder how this procedure is done. The plastic surgeon removes the extra skin and tightens the adjacent tissue to re-structure the breast, depending on its drooping degree. At the same time, the nipples are also restyled during surgery. Depending on the breast's complexity and the operation, breast uplift may take two to four hours.

Following the patient's profile and objectives, four operation techniques are categorized.

T Incision or Anchor Technique

Breast lift with a modified T incision, sometimes known as Inverted T lift, is a breast-lifting technique ideal for women who want more volume to their breasts and need to remove extra drooping skin.

This method necessitates three incisions:

  • The incision begins at the bottom of the areola and runs down to the bottom breast fold.

  • An in curved incision across the under the fold of the breast.

  • A peri-areolar incision.

This type of lift can be done as a part of a breast reduction procedure if the patient has drooping or sagging breasts. As opposed to the lollipop technique, this approach is only used on those who have a lot of sagging. Patients who have a lot of sagging may not obtain the outcomes they desire with the lollipop method.

Although scarring is a concern, the inverted T approach is still utilized. According to the instrument's uplift, the inverted T technique creates more scarring than other access methods.

Peri-Areolar Technique

A doughnut lift or a Benelli lift, as the name indicates, is a modestly invasive technique of treating mild to moderate degrees of breast drooping by making a single circular incision through the areola. In conjunction with removing the extra skin from around the breast, the technique also aids in moving the areola and nipple to a higher position on the breast.

Even though breast uplift appears to be an excellent surgery, the breast lift that may be done is minimal, and the surrounding marks around the areola are frequently severe.

Crescent Breast Lift Technique

An incision is made in the areola in this uplift technique. Because of the shape of the incision, it is referred to as a crescent. Mild to severe sagging of the breast can be treated with this incision. A crescent elevation is frequently performed at the same time as a breast augmentation. This process also aids in the correction of nipple unevenness.

This operation provides a little lift and, because the nipple form becomes circular, the outcome may be less than desirable.

Vertical or Lollipop Technique

Surgeons often use the lollipop technique to remove extra fat and reshape the breast. The other reason surgeons like it is that scars may be readily covered; the incision shape is a vertical line from the mamilla under the breast and around the mamilla, and scars are easily hidden.

The patient's profile and goals will determine the treatment’ way. In the end, the patient will be pleased since their breasts will not be drooping. On the other hand, the breast can become saggy if the patient gains or loses weight, becomes pregnant, gives birth to a kid, or ages.
