Breast lift procedures have undergone a paradigm shift in the past several years to include a procedure known as a vertical mammoplasty. This surgical technique, when indicated, can produce a more attractive breast with less scarring than the more conventional procedures that have been performed over the past several decades. With few exceptions, I have gone to this style of operative technique in my practice.
This type of surgery is especially indicated in patients who have small to moderate sized breasts and a significant amount of ptosis or sagging. The goal is to remove unwanted, loose skin while reshaping the remaining tissue into a more youthful breast mound. If implants are desired, these are placed in a separate procedure several months later to allow the incisions from the vertical mammoplasty to heal without tension.
