How Are Breast Lifts Performed?

A breast lift, or mastoplexy, varies depending on your body and the results you want for yourself. The initial incision depends on the severity of sagging your breast is showing. If there is minimal sagging, the incision is made around the areola, for a moderate amount the incisions is around the areola and down the front of the breast, and finally, for severe sagging Dr. McIntosh makes the incision around the areola, down the front of the breast, and under the natural fold of the breast. After the initial incision, excess skin is removed and the breast is reshaped. Sutures are used to hold the breasts’ new shape.

Because the incisions are made in the natural folds, scarring is minimal and usually decreases with time. The entire surgery takes between 1 and 2 hours and little downtime follows this procedure. Patients of Dr. McIntosh love the incredible results from their surgery and the youthful appearance their breasts once again have.  Patients desiring fuller looking breasts may consider combining breast lift and breast augmentation surgery.
