Breast Lift

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is often indicated in women with ptosis (sagging) of the breasts from aging, pregnancy, weight loss or very large breasts. Plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Brad Remington of Remington Plastic Surgery offers the breast lift procedure for patients in Kirkland. 

What to Expect from Your Breast Lift

The nipple and areola (dark skin around the nipple) are maintained on a healthy mound of breast tissue to preserve the blood supply and sensation and this mound then elevated to a more proportional and youthful level. The breast is reshaped to a fuller, rounder and younger form. 

The Different Types of Breast Lift Incisions

There are three basic types of breast lift: periareolar, circumvertical and so called, inverted “T” or anchor lift. A periareolar lift is the excision of skin in a crescent type shape above the nipple/areola which is then elevated and closure done in a “pursestring” type pattern. This leaves a usually well healed scar around the areola. A circumvertical lift is similar, but with some skin removed vertically from the lower pole of the breast. An inverted T or anchor pattern breast lift is for very sagging breasts in which it is necessary to remove skin from the area of the fold under the breast, thus resulting a scar pattern looking like a “T” upside down. More information may be seen at this Breast Lift link. Reduction of the size of the areola is also often requested. The change of a breast lift is marked. Breast lifts are often combined with an augmentation and a lift is almost always part of a breast reduction.

 

You and your staff have been more than I had hoped for. I was very anxious about the surgery; your warmth, and sense of humor meant everything to me I wanted to send along a note to try and express my gratitude. Thank you!
