Breast Lift Surgical Technique

Breast Lift surgery, in certain cases, can be performed using breast implants alone. This is typically the case for a woman with relatively minor sagging of the breast. For women with larger, more sagging breasts or women who wish to avoid the use of breast implants, breast lift surgery generally involves "cut-and-stitch" techniques in which the breast is tailored into a new, lifted form. Amongst patients who would be best treated with this type of lift, there are several techniques that can be used.

Women who have a relatively small breast with minimal sagging may be treated via a fairly minimal procedure in which only a single incision around the outer border of the areola is used. Women with a larger, more sagging breast will require additional support to keep the breast in its lifted position and this is achieved by adding a vertical incision that runs from the 6-o'clock position of the areola straight downward toward the breast fold. This type of breast lift surgery is often called a "lollipop" lift due to the shape of the incision pattern. Finally, women with large, extensively sagging breasts will require a procedure that uses the lollipop incision along with another incision that runs horizontally along the breast fold. This type of breast lift is often referred to as the "anchor" lift. Dr. Robert Backstein, Toronto breast lift surgeon will assess your situation and advise which procedure would work best in your particular case.
