  • Secondly, the Peri-Areolar lift, or "Doughnut lift," involves removing a circular area of skin around the areola. It is suitable for mild sagging.
  • For moderate sagging, the vertical, or "Lollipop lift," combines peri-areolar incisions with a vertical line downward.
  • Lastly, the Anchor, or "Inverted T Lift," treats significant sagging by involving an anchor-shaped incision pattern.

Choosing the right Breast Lift type depends on the degree of sagging and desired outcome, ensuring personalised and natural-looking results.

How is breast lift surgery performed?

Breast Lift Surgery is performed in two ways. Silicone prosthesis is implanted under the skin in the tiny breast, and extra breast tissue is excised in the big breast to give the breasts an upright look. The extra skin in the region is then removed, and the procedure is done.
In the case of first-degree breast sagging, a half-moon-shaped portion of skin is removed from the areola, and the nipple is raised slightly.

A significant amount of skin is excised from around the nipple ring in second-degree breast sagging. The ring that results is shrunk and sewn onto the nipple ring. There becomes just a scar around the nipple ring. For a few months, the region surrounding the nipple looks like a shrunken bag mouth. The vertical technique is used if this is not desired. The produced ring is slipped beneath the breast ring and stitched using this technique. A downward trail remains in this application.

Third-degree breast sagging is treated using the inverted T method. In addition to the vertical scar, a horizontal scar remains under the breast. The advantage of this procedure is that it gives the breast a conical and spherical shape. False breast sagging (pseudoptosis); there is no drooping of the breast in this situation. The only thing that has slumped is the submammary pole. Silicone prosthesis is put in the breast to rectify this, or the nipple ring is relocated to a higher location using the vertical approach. Because it leaves fewer scars, silicone prosthesis is preferred.

Most patients can return to light activities within a week or two but should avoid strenuous exercise for about six weeks. While you'll notice immediate improvements, the final results will gradually unfold over a few months as swelling subsides and incision lines fade.
