Spring into Spring, with a Breast Lift
Springtime is a time of renewals and fresh starts. It’s the perfect season to rejuvenate yourself, and if you happen to suffer from sagging breasts, it might just be time for you to consider having a breast lift done. The breast lift is fast becoming one of the most popular procedures in breast surgery. By removing excess skin, re-positioning the areola, and shaping the breasts into a firmer and perkier form, the breast lift can bring your figure back to its prime. Curious about the breast lift? Let’s take some time to learn all about the breast lift, the different kinds that exist, and whether it’s right for you.
Why a Breast Lift?
With a breast lift, you can finally feel young and feminine again. Women tend to experience sagging because of genetics, aging, and the effects of breast feeding. A breast lift will remove the excess skin that leads to sagging breasts while repositioning the breast tissue and areola to a more youthful position. Because women tend to experience sagging to a different degree, there are actually different kinds of lifts that exist.
The Crescent Lift
If you have minimal sagging, the crescent lift might just be for you. With the crescent lift, an incision will be made along the upper half of your areola, much like-you guessed it-a crescent shape. Then, excess skin will be removed above the nipple, and the nipple will be moved up. Because the incision is along the borders of the areola, this lift’s incision is quite a bit easier to hide.
Also known as the doughnut lift, this technique uses an incision that goes all the way around the areola. Then a patch of skin around the areola will be removed, and the nipple can be resized if needed. This type of lift is perfect for women with moderate levels of sagging.
This lift uses an incision that goes all the way around the nipple and vertically down into the breast crease. Afterwards, the excess skin will be removed, the breast will be cinched together, and the nipple will be moved up. This technique is commonly used when breast tissue needs to be reshaped.
The Anchor Lift
The Anchor Lift is precisely that—a lift that uses an anchor-shaped scar. This lift uses an incision that goes around the areola, vertically down the breast mound, and horizontally under the breast crease. This lift is reserved for advanced cases of sagging because it gives the greatest access to the tissues.
