What Are The Different Types Of Breast Lift  Manchester

Types of Breast lift or Mastopexy

There are a number of different ways of performing a mastopexy or breast uplift procedure. These include:

Crescent Lift

The first type of breast lift involves a scar at the upper half of the areolar. This technique can be used just to lift the nipple about 1-2cm in order to improve the symmetry of the nipple position.

Periareolar lift

This type of breast lift procedure involves just having a scar around the whole nipple or areolar. This is useful when only a small amount of uplift is required. The degree of lift will usually be limited with this method.

Vertical lift

This technique has a scar around the areolar and then a vertical scar. This can be used to tighten the lower pole and lift the breast more. There may be some bunching up of the scar in the lower end which often settles. Sometimes a small horizontal scar may be required.

Full Anchor Lift

This uplift has a scar around the areolar, vertically down the breast and underneath. This is a full uplift and will result in the anchor shaped scar.

Augmentation Mastopexy

This type of uplift is combined with the use of an implant.  In this procedure the implant will provide the volume and the uplift will lift and tighten the breast. The augmentation mastopexy is a single stage procedure.  Uplift and implants can also be performed an two stage procedure where an uplift is performed first followed by an implant later on for more volume.
