Life’s ups and downs, pregnancy and breastfeeding, significant weight gain or weight loss, and even genetics can all be reasons why women in Wichita experience loose skin and sagging in their breasts. As we age, this sagging only gets worse until it starts to have a negative impact on your self-image and mental state. By performing a breast lift, Plastic Surgical Specialists’ Dr. Voge can bring your bust line back to its former perkier self and rejuvenate your self-esteem.
What Type of Incision Will Be Used?
When women choose to have a breast lift with Dr. Voge of Plastic Surgical Specialists at her Wichita clinic, they will also gain increased confidence and pride in their body as they return to their former youthful shape. Because Dr. Voge will need to excise extra skin from the breasts, a breast lift will always come with incisions. You will not be able to see these incisions while you’re wearing clothes, but some incision types may be visible while wearing certain kinds of bathing suits or during intimate situations. There are several breast lift incision types, and which one Dr. Voge chooses will depend on the degree of breast sagging you’re experiencing. Keep reading to learn more about the different breast lift incision types and when each is most commonly used.
- Crescent Incision: this type of incision is made along the top portion of the areola. It is most often used on women who are experiencing just a small degree of sagging. This incision can be used in conjunction with a breast augmentation, but it is the least common breast lift incision.
- Donut Incision: this incision is made in a donut shape around the entire areola. It is most often used on women in the Wichita area who have a medium degree of sagging and who have chosen to have a breast augmentation in combination with their breast lift procedure. This incision is also useful for women who desire an areola reduction as well.
- Lollipop Incision: this type of incision is made around the areola and travels vertically down from the areola to the breast crease, mimicking the shape of a lollipop. This incision type is best for patients of Dr. Voge who are experiencing a higher degree of sagging.
- Inverted-T or Anchor Incision: this incision is made around the areola and down in a vertical line towards the breast crease. It is similar to a lollipop incision, but the anchor incision also continues horizontally within the breast crease, completing the inverted T or anchor appearance. This incision type is best for women who desire to have a breast reduction at the same time as their breast lift.
