Many women with larger breasts are unhappy with the changes that happen after pregnancy, weight loss or gain, or over the course of aging. A mastopexy and/or breast reduction surgery can help to restore the fullness of your breasts, giving them a more lively, youthful appearance. Boulder Plastic Surgery has performed both of these procedures on many patients, with stunning end results. We often combine these two procedures to get the exact effect you want. BPS cares about how our patients feel about their bodies, which is why we’ll work with you to develop the best plan possible.
Different Types of Procedures Available
Every different patient’s needs are different. Boulder Plastic Surgery has several options that we consider for mastopexies.
- A crescent lift is for women who only need a slight lift of their breasts. A small portion of the breast tissue above the areola is removed, moving the nipple to a higher position.
- A Benelli breast lift is a good choice for women with sagging breasts and loose fitting skin. Starting with an incision around the areola, a larger incision around that is then made, creating a doughnut shape, which is then removed, giving women a stronger lift than with the crescent lift.
- A lollipop incision is a more powerful lift than the previously mentioned procedures, but leaves more scarring. It starts around the areola then travels straight down to the breast fold.
- The strongest breast lift procedure is the inverted t-bone breast lift. It follows the same general procedure as the lollipop incision, but adds a lateral incision under the breast, in the breast fold. Though this adds more scarring, the scar typically fades over time and is hidden by the breast fold.
