Types of Breast Lift Procedures

There are several different types of breast lifts available to patients in Monmouth County. The right method is determined based on each patient’s breast tissue, the amount of excess skin that needs to be removed, as well as their individual goals and desires.

Anchor Incision Breast Lift
Also referred to as inverted T (wise pattern), this is one of the oldest types of mastopexy that is used to dramatically reshape sagging breasts. The surgeon makes three incisions around the areola, vertically downwards to the breast crease, and along the breast crease. Anchor breast lift results in more scarring and is typically recommended for women who need a dramatic reshaping.

Crescent Lift
Far less common, this type of procedure involves making an incision along the upper region of the areola. It is suited for women who have minimal sagging and is normally performed together with a breast augmentation procedure.

Lollipop Lift
Also referred to as a keyhole incision, this type of mastopexy achieves a ‘lollipop’ or ‘keyhole’ shape and is used to correct moderate sagging. One incision is made around the areola’s edge, while the other one goes vertically down to the breast crease. Scars from a lollipop lift are easily hidden.

Doughnut Lift (Periareolar Lift)
A doughnut mastopexy in New Jersey will correct moderate sagging with a single scar. This procedure is commonly performed together with a breast augmentation and can also help resize the areola. Incisions go around the edges of the areola.
