No one likes to get older. Along with age come a lot of side effects – many of which are unpleasant. For women, sagging breasts become an issue with the onset of age or after weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. Luckily, there is a solution to the problem – breast lift surgery (also known as mastopexy). This surgical procedure can be used to correct sagging uneven breasts, decreased breast volume, drooping nipples, and stretched areolas and thus restore breast projection and improve breast shape. There are three different kinds of breast lift surgical techniques: Traditional breast lift Also known as an “anchor lift,” incisions for this technique are made from the 6:00 position of the outer border of around the nipple and another incision at the fold under the breast. Ideal candidates for this procedure are women with extremely droopy breasts. Vertical breast lift Also known as a “lollipop,” incisions for this technique are made from the 6:00 position of the outer border around the nipple to the fold under the breast. Ideal candidates for this procedure are women with moderately sagging breasts. Circumareolar breast lift Also known as “donut” or “Benelli,” this technique involves removing skin around the outer border of the nipple. The plastic surgeon elevates the nipples but cannot rearrange breast tissue internally to lift the breast, resulting in a less dramatic look. Ideal candidates for this procedure are women with mildly to moderately sagging breasts. Ideal candidates for a breast lift are those whose:
  • Breasts appear different from each other in terms of size, firmness, and/or substance.
  • Breasts hang down loosely below the breast fold.
  • Nipples point downward.
If you plan on having more children and breastfeeding, postpone a breast lift procedure as pregnancy may stretch the breast tissue and reduce volume, thus compromising the surgical results. Always weigh the pros and cons before undergoing any surgical procedure and talk with your plastic surgeon about any concerns you may have.
