The Scarless Breast Lift

The Scarless Breast Lift

As is the case with breast lifting and mastopexy, women seeking this surgery are very disturbed about the drooping appearance of their breasts. Even though the degree of deformity is usually less extreme, their discontent and concern is as much or even more. In this group of patients, however, only breast implants are needed to give the lift, thus requiring just a minimal incision.

Whether you are born with this condition or it develops later in life, especially after breast-feeding, it is a perfectly normal and very common request for women to want their breasts to look perkier and more youthful.

Surgery to enlarge and at the same time lift the breast is very common in Dr. Romano’s practice. He spends a great deal of time listening to your expectations and interpreting for you what your anatomy and body will safely and predictably allow him to do. In addition he builds a system into every surgery that, initially, allows you to recover much more quickly and, secondly, preserves your surgical results. Dr. Romano has performed hundreds of these procedures with consistently beautiful and natural results.

Dr. Romano Explains

The “scarless breast lift” is a term my patients taught me, and I have started to use it. As is the case with breast lifting and mastopexy in general, patients seeking this surgery are very disturbed about the drooping appearance of their breasts. Even though the degree of deformity is usually less, the degree of discontent and concern is as much or even more. In this group of patients, however, only breast implants are needed to give the lift, thus requiring only a minimal incision.

Whether you are born with this condition or it develops later in life, especially after breast-feeding, it is perfectly normal and very common for women to want their breasts to look perkier and youthful, and I will help you achieve this result.

The scarless breast lift is not just a breast augmentation and not just a breast lift; it is a combination of both. It works only in patients who have some mild to moderate sagging and whose nipples are at the level of the breast fold or only slightly below. The implant rounds out the lower loose breast tissue, perks up the breast, and fills in the upper pole. In this situation the breasts are mostly deflated, but not all that droopy.

In this condition, adding an implant perks up the breast, fills in the deflated upper pole, rounds and perks up the bottom, and shows more skin between the nipple and the fold. It gives you a lifted, natural, and beautiful appearance. Your anatomy and your expectations are combined to put a plan together. Although the incision is basically the same as for a breast enlargement, there is a great deal of technical difference; more internal surgery and more planning are necessary. The implant is inserted and placed so it fills in and perks up the lower portion of the breast and fills the upper portion as well. Much can be done with this surgery to not only increase the size of your breasts, but to provide a very beautiful and natural shape. A wide array of implants is available—from saline to silicone, from fuzzy to smooth, from round to anatomic. Women can choose from different incisions, different types of implants, and different locations for placement of the implant. Gel fill materials have evolved to be very safe, feel natural, and cause less contracture. Surgery involves a relatively short procedure under a light general anesthetic and is performed where I do surgery, which is in a hospital setting. The surgery is safe and predictable. Virtually immediately after surgery you will see your result, and it just gets better with time. All of the stitches are dissolvable, and the recovery is rapid; you can return to work in several days and to some physical exercise within the first week.

Surgery to enlarge and at the same time lift the breast is very common in my practice. I have performed hundreds of these procedures with consistently beautiful and natural results. I have special expertise in this procedure and spend a great deal of time discussing your anatomy, listening to your expectations, and interpreting for you what your anatomy and body will safely and predictably allow me to do. In addition I build a system into every surgery that, initially, allows you to recover much more quickly and, secondly, preserves your surgical results. This system includes a special diet, vitamins, supplements, special garments, breast exercises, skin products, physical training, and knowing what to avoid. Together all of this allows me to create results that are consistently very beautiful, quick to heal, and exceptionally natural. I use minimal incisions, especially in an area of such great importance to women. I am delighted to surgically provide you with such a profound body-image change, one that has so consistently pleased my patients and changed their lives.
