For Many Cases, The Lollipop Breast Lift Technique Is Ideal

Nov 10, 2017

The lollipop breast lift technique, also known as the vertical breast lift, is most commonly used to rectify moderate sagging of breasts and permits considerable alteration and reshaping with limited incisions. This procedure avoids having an incision underneath the breast (in the inframammary fold) and therefore, the scar pattern is a ‘lollipop’ shape.

The Procedure – How It’s Done

At your consultation with Dr. Gayoso, he will provide you with information regarding this procedure and examine you to see if you are a candidate. Patients who have moderate breast ptosis (sagging) are candidates for this limited incision procedure.

The lollipop breast lift technique includes two incisions: one made around the edge of the areola and the other running downwards vertically from the base of the areola to the inframammary crease. Once the incisions are made, both the nipple and areola are elevated to a new, more favorable position, and then the incisions are sutured. This ultimately renders the incision pattern in the shape of a lollipop.

Major Advantages over Other Techniques

Every breast lift technique is unique and has benefits and drawbacks compared to other techniques. For instance, the number of incisions made during the lollipop approach is fewer than that of the traditional breast lift procedure, which has an anchor style incision pattern. Vertical mastopexy procedure (‘lollipop technique’) can be favorable because of the limited number of incisions. However, not every patient is a candidate and Dr. Gayoso will help educate you on the best procedure for your breast lift.
