During an initial breast lift surgery consultation, Dr. Avraham will evaluate the anatomy of your individual’s breasts before tailoring a plan that meets your specific needs and offers the best possible results.

Do I Need Breast Implants for a Breast Lift?

Breast implants are not necessary for most breast lifts. That said, a breast lift with implants—also called an augmentation mastopexy or breast augmentation with lift—can be performed for women who wish to have significantly more fullness than their baseline. For patients who would like their breasts to be significantly larger, not just more lifted, an implant may be considered. But if the goal is simply a more youthful-appearing, “perkier” breast, then implants are not necessary.

Breast Lift Surgery Procedure

Greenwich board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Avraham performs a mastopexy using the latest techniques to minimize the risk of scarring and other complications. General anesthesia or local anesthesia may be used to keep you comfortable. The surgeon will make precise markings in line with the desired incision technique and create incisions to remove excess skin and lift the breasts. Sometimes, liposuction and advanced fat grafting techniques may refine contours and enhance the volume or nipple projection. Dr. Avraham pays meticulous attention to blood supply and tissue preservation to ensure optimal healing and long-term results.

Dr. Avraham’s Incision Techniques

Dr. Avraham performs a breast lift using a variety of techniques, depending on the needs and anatomy of the patient.

Crescentric Lift

A crescentric mastopexy is performed utilizing an incision made around the top edge of the areola. This allows for the nipple to be elevated on the breast, and is generally reserved for women with mild ptosis who do not need excess skin removed.

Periareolar Lift

The periareolar mastopexy—also called a donut mastopexy—involves an incision that goes completely around the areola. It is typically employed in cases of mild to moderate ptosis and for those with relatively small breasts.

Vertical Lift

A vertical lift—also called a short scar or lollipop scar lift—entails an incision around the areola as well as one that extends vertically down the middle of the breast. It is often employed in cases of more extensive ptosis, as it allows for a greater amount of tissue repositioning and skin removal.

Wise Pattern Lift

A wise pattern lift utilizes an incision pattern that is often referred to as an anchor. An incision is made around the areola, down the middle of the breast, and in the crease under the breast.  While this does involve more incisions than other mastopexy techniques, it is a powerful tool in creating a lifted breast and removing excess skin. For women with significant sagging of the breast, this can often yield the most dramatic aesthetic improvement.

Resizing and Repositioning the Areola

Breast lift surgery procedures usually also need to address concerns about the areola itself. During your Greenwich breast lift consultation, Dr. Avraham would discuss if reducing the size or repositioning the areola would benefit your desired outcome.

Throughout the treatment, Dr. Avraham’s chief goal is to prioritize your safety and create natural-looking results that complement your breasts.

Scarless Breast Lift

Traditional breast lifts offer excellent results, with an impressive satisfaction score of 95% on Real Patient Ratings and 94% on Real Self. However, some women are concerned about minimizing scars. While it’s important to understand that a truly scarless lift isn’t possible, minimally invasive techniques like laser or radio-frequency treatments may help address mild sagging. These non-invasive procedures only offer minimal tightening and may not be suitable for everyone. If you are interested, Dr. Avraham will discuss the minimally invasive approach versus a traditional lift with strategically placed breast incisions to identify the best option for your desired outcome.

What Does Breast Lift Recovery Entail?

While the idea of surgery involving incisions on the breast may seem daunting, the reality is that this is largely an operation of skin and fat. As such, pain control may not be a challenge, and recovery may be surprisingly quick. Post-operatively, we will ask that patients wear a surgical bra and refrain from strenuous exercise for about four weeks. Time out from work can usually be limited to a few days to a week. These procedures are performed as outpatient surgeries, and women generally return home in just a few hours.

Breast Lift Results

A breast lift surgery typically achieves dramatic results with improved breast shape, lifted nipples, and a better fit in clothes. While swelling subsides in the weeks after surgery, the final results continue to refine over a few months. The lasting outcome of the procedure may be expected within 6 months to a year. The incision scars may take much longer to reach their final faded state.
