What are the different incisions that can be done during a breast lift?
There are four main techniques for mastopexy: (With or Without Implants)
Periareolar (around the areola) is used when the fall of the breast is slight.
Circumvertical: This technique is reserved for moderate sagging. In this surgery an incision around the areola and a vertical scar that runs from the areola until about 1-2 cm above the breast crease or groove is made.
Incision in LJ: It is a similar to the anchor incision, which collects more tissue from the sides, through an incision around the areola, vertical-shaped LJ and lift the breasts in the same way, also around the areola.
The inverted T (Anchor): When the sagging is severe breast should make an incision around the areola, a vertical and a horizontal incision in the groove of the breast. This is the only way to properly reshape the breast and provide lasting results in patients who have severe falls.
All techniques have proven effective and their benefits when they are selected under strict scientific criteria and conducted by qualified doctors. Preferably you can get a scar and get a lasting and beautiful… Way to save scars and get unsatisfactory results, which can make the patient feel satisfied with their surgery and should be practiced again the same for the second time. It is important to talk with your surgeon, your doctor is always the best answer.
