Scar after breast mastopexy
While they say that true beauty is just a matter of perception, most women think that is it distinguished by the shape and size of their breasts, especially those women whose breasts become saggy due to a number of factors. Thankfully, there exists a breast lifting surgery that is called mastopexy. However, like any other cosmetic surgery, patients must expect to have scars after the procedure.
The scars that a patient can get after the surgery depend on the type of incision made by the surgeon. Here are the most common incisions:
Benelli-this type of incision involves the least skin removal and the scar will be found around the areola’s edge
Vertical-the scars will be found in the central area under the breasts
Inverted T- this type of incision forms two scars—a perpendicular and a flat one
The surgical techniques and incision types can heavily affect the appearance of your scars. As time passes, the scars will fade and become less noticeable. However, keep in mind that genetics, health and skin condition does play a major role in the results.
Here’s a list of the type of scars linked with each method of mastopexy:
Crescent Lift-The crescent lift technique is for patients who have very little breast sagginess to fix.
The “Donut” Lift-The technique is used for patients who have mild breast roping, and are expected to benefit from mastopexy.
The “Lollipop” lift-This technique is used to take out surplus skin and then sculpt the full breast with simple and perfectly camouflaged scars.
Inverted T-This technique is used for patients that have substantially flabby and overhanging breasts.
The Best Looking Scar-The Benelli technique is considered to give the best looking scar of all the surgeon creates a perfectly camouflaged scar that will wane into your nipple line over time.
