What is Breast Lift Surgery?

The goal of breast lift surgery is to restore the shape and firmness of the breasts by removing sagging tissue and repositioning the nipples and surrounding tissue to improve the overall appearance of the breasts. Patients who might be interested in a breast lift surgery are those who have nipples that sit below the breast fold or point downwards, have breasts that are asymmetric, and/or breasts that sag or feel droopy.  

Types of breast lift techniques:

  • A crescent lift – an incision made on the top of the areola to move the nipples up 1-2cm.  
  • A circum-areolar or “donut” lift is an incision made around the entire areola.  
  • A vertical or “lollypop” lift is around the nipple and down the breast.  People with more severe ptosis (sagging) will need the Inverted T or “anchor” lift to fully address their concerns since some minor forms of ptosis can be corrected with augmentation alone.  

However, it is not uncommon that a patient will need a combined lift-augmentation to optimize their result. During your consultation, Dr. Crofts will address your concerns and determine what breast lift technique will give you your ideal results.
