Breast lifting scars

31st Jan 2017

[vc_single_image image=”4159″ img_size=”large”] Scarring occurs after a wide range of procedures that include cutting of a patient’s tissues. Mastopexy or breast lifting is not a special case either. The breast lift methodology requires entry points that will inevitably leave scars around your breasts area. By and large, the scars will gradually turn out to be less visible but it won’t totally vanish with time. Still, the perky and aesthetically pleasing advantages of a mastopexy will override those barely visible scars from the procedure.

The size and number of scars rest upon the experience and skill of your plastic surgeon. It also depends on how well you follow the post-operative instructions. In spite of the fact that your specialist may disguise a few scars to blend along the shape of your breasts, a large portion of the scars will stay unmistakable on the surface of your breasts.

You may normally lean toward a mastopexy procedure that promises negligible scarring. It is important for you to allow your plastic surgeon to assess your general health and breast condition and propose the surgical approach most suitable for you. Listen well to your plastic surgeon. He knows best.

Surgical methods used for breast lifting and the scars they leave behind

Any method your plastic surgeon uses to lift your breasts will require entry point incisions and these will define and determine the scars you will have.

The breast lift method your plastic surgeon suggests will depend on the following:

  • Your present breast structure and arrangement
  • The level of breast lift required
  • The elasticity of your skin
  • The objective you need to accomplish with the breast lift
  • Your desires and goals for the procedure
  • The volume of breast improvement you want to get versus the quantity of scars you can accept as necessary

Allow me to discuss the most widely recognized procedures and the subsequent scarring.

Benelli breast lift

The procedure with minimal scarring is known as the Benelli breast lift, which leaves a solitary scar around the areola, forming the outskirt of the areola. The good news is that this breast lift procedure does not include vertical scarring. It may just leave some tiny wrinkling around the areola. Be that as it may, it is still the best procedure to create a firm, young looking, upright brest.

Wonder Breast lift

The Wonder Breast lift is a cutting edge breast lift procedure created by Dr. Cortes. Other breast lift methods have a few drawbacks with the tissue bottoming out or the breast tissue drooping with time and age. With the Wonder Breast lift, the delicate tissue of the base part of the breast is used to both lift and create rounded fullness that only an implant can achieve. This procedure leaves an L-shaped scar instead of the modified T scar. The upside is that you will have a breast lift without an implant that looks like you had one and with longer lasting effects.

Vertical breast lift

After a vertical breast lift is performed, you will have a vertical scar on your breast and a scar around the areola. The vertical scar is found in the underside of the breast. This procedure focuses on reducing sagging and repositioning the nipple. Your plastic surgeon may even now utilize a Benelli tote string crease. However, this may diminish the tissues and cause more visible wrinkling around the areola.

Wise pattern breast lift

The stay lift leaves a scar around the areola, a horizontal scar, and a flat scar underneath the breast. This is the most extensive breast lift technique used to lift breasts that are Extremely saggy. This cuts out a lot of tissue as the skin is lifted and the incisions end up around the areola and thus leaves the most scarring.

Still, it is a standout and considered amongst the most solid breast lift strategies. Most surgeons lean toward this strategy due to its efficiency and ability to deliver results.

The best looking scar

If your objective is to have a lift with minimal scarring, then the Benelli breast lift is your best choice the scars will be virtually unnoticeable since it will blur into your areola line. The length of your scar will basically depend on the extent of droopiness of your breasts. A few patients lean toward the vertical scar since it is not as noticeable because it is on the underside of the breast. The rearranged T or grapple lift is the most loved of numerous surgeons since it lifts the breast viably even if it does leave more scars.

What you need to know about potential scar complications

The  inverted T is the most established breast lift procedure and the most utilized strategy at this moment. Different strategies talked about in this article are generally cutting edge and have not been as considerably reviewed as this method.

As indicated by a study, the reversed T strategy has a 10 percent wound difficulty rate, which is higher than other current breast lift strategies. From my own experience, I can say that the inconvenience injury rate of Benelli and vertical scars is close to four to five percent.

The Wise pattern or stay lift involves incisions along the sides of the breast, a vertical incision up to and around the areola, so the scars will be larger and uglier and can scare patients. Some plastic surgeons don’t recommend as much since it has a tendency to flatten the breast.

The vertical scar strategy involves less scarring than the inverted T lift, but it still leaves a vertical scar running in the underinside underside of the breast. The good news is that your breast will get an improved shape with this technique, and the scar will steadily blur in time. Numerous plastic surgeons prefer this method for lifting and reducing of breasts of different sizes.

If you are searching for a breast lift with breast implants, the Benelli can be an incredible alternative since that the implant itself does the vast majority of the breast shaping work. Do not go for a vertical scar or a inverted T scar if you need to get breast implants with a breast lift. The Benelli method is best for this situation since it leaves almost no scarring.

When you embed an implant to a breast lift, you fill up the skin and thus there is no need to take out much of the skin. Your plastic surgeons use the Benelli scar technique since it is more difficult. Still, it is ideal for small breast reductions, lifts and lifts paired with implants.

To mend breast lift scars, numerous ladies use vitamin E. Please note that the use of vitamin E supplements does not really do much for scars. Refrain from doing self-diagnosis or using over-the-counter medications to treat your scars without the advice of your doctor. In addition, taking blood-thinning medications can hamper your body’s natural mending process even if it helps prevent the development of clots and bleeding.

Numerous breast lift patients use silicone gel sheets to flatten scars and they are quite effective in making the scars less visible. Topical gels are other options, but do not use unless recommended by your doctor.


If you are planning a breast lift, otherwise called mastopexy, make a point to tell your plastic surgeon what you expect from the surgery, aesthetic objectives you want to achieve, and the scars you prefer. Your plastic surgeon will need to thoroughly evaluate your physical and emotional health, assess your general wellbeing, inspect your breasts, so he can tell you which technique is most suitable for your needs and explain the extent of scarring.

Ask your surgeon where the scars will show up and what size they will be. If you want to pair breast implants with a breast lift, chances are your plastic surgeon will suggest the Benelli breast lift since it includes negligible scarring. If you are searching for a more compelling lifting of your breasts, your surgeon may prescribe the vertical breast lift technique, which will leave you with a vertical scar on the middle underside of your breast. The anchor lift or inverted T technique leaves different scars that you may not like, but it is highly effective in lifting the breasts.
