What is a Breast Lift?

Various methods for performing the procedure include peri-areola, vertical (lollipop incision), and Wise pattern or anchor incision technique. Each of these techniques produces a different type of scar pattern. Your breast shape, length, and size determine the method used. This will be discussed with you in detail during your visit. The procedure is done under general anesthesia; it usually takes two to three hours, and the results are long-lasting.

Is it time to restore youthful breasts?

If you dream of restoring the look of perky, youthful breasts when under the care of our team at Northern Jersey Plastic Surgery Center Center, you can expect beautiful results and a fresh, new you.

This customized procedure is the ideal approach for the following aesthetic body issues:

  • Restore youthful breast contours and firmness
  • Lift sagging breasts and correct breast ptosis
  • Rejuvenate your overall appearance
  • Improve breast symmetry
  • Enhance self-confidence and body image
  • Reposition the nipple-areola complex for a more youthful look
  • Reverse the effects of pregnancy, breastfeeding, and aging

The procedure: Elevate your natural beauty

The procedure involves the removal of excess skin and reshaping breast tissue to create firmer, uplifted breasts. Dr. Callahan may also reposition the nipple-areola complex to a more youthful position. The incisions are strategically placed to minimize visible scarring and can vary depending on the extent of the lift needed.

Breast lift incision patterns

During a breast lift in Englewood, NJ, Dr. Troy Callahan carefully selects the most appropriate incision pattern based on your specific needs and desired outcome. These incision patterns are strategically placed to minimize visible scarring while allowing for the necessary reshaping and lifting of the breasts. The following are the common incision patterns used:

  • Anchor incision (Inverted T): This is the traditional incision pattern for a breast lift. It involves three incisions: one around the areola, another vertically from the areola to the breast crease, and a third along the natural curve of the breast crease. This technique is ideal for patients with significant sagging or ptosis, providing maximum lift and reshaping capabilities.
  • Lollipop incision (Vertical): This incision pattern involves two incisions - one around the areola and a vertical incision from the areola to the breast crease. It is often suitable for patients with moderate breast sagging, allowing for effective lifting and reshaping of the breasts.
  • Donut incision (Peri-Areolar): This incision pattern involves a single incision around the edge of the areola. It is commonly used for patients with mild sagging or minimal breast ptosis. While it provides less extensive lift, it can still significantly improve breast shape and symmetry.
  • Crescent incision: This is the most minimalistic incision pattern, involving a minor, crescent-shaped incision at the upper edge of the areola. It is typically reserved for patients with minimal breast sagging or those who require minor adjustments to the nipple position.

Breast lift scars – Precision surgery matters.

It is important to note that breast lift surgery, like any surgical procedure, will result in some degree of scarring. However, our skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Troy Callahan, is committed to minimizing visible scarring and ensuring that incisions are discreetly placed within natural creases or around the areola to make them as inconspicuous as possible.

While scars are inevitable in the healing process, they typically fade over time and can be easily concealed under revealing clothing or swimwear. At Northern Jersey Plastic Surgery Center Center, we provide comprehensive scar care instructions and recommend topical treatments to promote optimal healing and minimize scar visibility.

It’s important to remember that surgical scars are a testament to your journey and the positive changes you’ve made to enhance your self-confidence and restore youthful contours. Many patients find that the benefits of a breast lift far outweigh the minimal, well-hidden scars, as they can enjoy a renewed sense of body confidence and pride in their appearance.

Dr. Troy Callahan and our caring team are here to support you throughout the healing process, providing guidance, reassurance, and scar management techniques to help you embrace the beauty of your restored, youthful figure.
