Assessment before Breast lift surgery

Breast lift surgery is an individual problem with different techniques and styles and it is based on the doctor’s assessment as follows:

  1. The size and shape of the breasts
  2. Size and position of the areola
  3. The degree of sagging of the breasts
  4. The skin condition and skin elasticity including the excess amount of skin in the chest area

Techniques for Breast lift surgery are as follows:

Breast Lift

1.Inverted T-shape lifting (Anchor)

The case where the breasts are the most slender are those that are below the level of the nipple lines and the doctor has to move the nipples which are very apart using the vertical incision technique alone may not be enough. Therefore, horizontal incisions are required to make the shape of the breasts beautiful.

This technique of breast lifting surgery will remove the extra part of the breast. It is a breast lift together with augmentation. The doctor will only beautify the skin without interfering with the breast mass and this surgical technique can move the nipples and decorate the skin around the breast as much as possible.

2.Technique with vertical incisions ( lollipop )

In the case of breasts that are very flexible, the level of the nipples are lower than they should be. The lifting surgery is therefore necessary to move the nipples higher and have to remove some part of the skin. The advantage of this technique of breast lifting is that the skin of the outer and inner breasts is moved to the middle. This makes the breast shaped like a cone. This makes the top of the breasts and nipples look flat and beautiful.

3.Donut technique ( Donut )

In the case of low to moderate sagging breasts, the skin around the areola is donut-shaped and attached to the nipple.  After suturing around the areola, there will be pleated skin for about 2-3 months.

4.Crescent moon technique ( Crescent )

In the case of slightly sagging breasts, the edge of the areola is in a crescent shape and then the surgeon will raise the position of the nipple and the areola slightly in order to make it more beautiful. This method can move the areola by 2-3 cm and the nipple level can be increased by 1-2 cm. This technique allows the tissue in the breast to be lifted and ready for the adjust meant of the shape to correct the proportions of the structure, and the tightness of the breast in which the nipples and areolas will be relocated to a position that looks natural, with the same firmness and height and beauty of the breasts of a young woman. But if the areola is larger, the surrounding skin may be cut off to make the shape better. Also, if the skin around the breast is too large, it will also be cut off to compensate for the loss of flexibility.

The incision is usually made in a position that can be hidden under clothes, where undissolved sutures are sutured into the deep tissue layer of the breast to help build and support the breasts. The surgical scar pattern for a breast lift is determined based on the amount of elasticity of the patient’s skin. It can be done in many ways. The surgical incision may be a circle around the areola area or longitudinal marks along the lower part of the breast, or from the areola ring to the crease of the nipple base because it depends on the appearance of the patient’s breasts. When the excess skin is removed, the breasts are structured and lifted. The remaining skin is pulled tightly when the surgical incision is sutured. Some surgical incisions are concealed according to the natural contours of the breasts. But some incisions may appear. The scars are permanent but will fade over time.
