Breast Lift Plastic Surgery Beverly Hills
A breast lift is a surgical procedure that is meant to improve the appearance of the breast. Mastopexy is another term for which this procedure is known by. If the breast is sagging or drooping, having a breast lift performed will lift the breast while repositioning the nipple and areola. If a patient decides that they would like to have implants inserted to enlarge the breast it becomes know as a breast augmentation instead of just a basic lift.
A full mastopexy is a technique that is widely used today because of its great success in producing a great shape and readjusting the position of the breast. During the procedure any excess skin is removed and the position of the breast is adjusted as well as the size of the areola. Using this technique means that you can expect to have a scar in three locations: the peri-areolar area, the inframammary fold and a vertical incision from the areola to the crease.
Using modified breast lifts means going about any other breast life technique. There are a few that can be performed which help minimize the amount of scarring that normally occurs with a full mastopexy. A ’donut’ breast lift is a type of M.B.L. where scarring is only around the areola. Similar to this is the ’crescent’ mastopexy with also has scarring only around the areola; the only difference between the two is that the ’crescent’ breast lift removes more tissue from the area above the areola. The last M.B.L. technique is the ’lollipop’ lift. This procedure’s incision is made around the nipple and extends down to the crease beneath the breast. Using modified breast lifts is going to have less scarring in any case. The only con that goes along with these is that they don’t create as much of a change as a full breast lift does.
