4 Options for Breast Lift

Many women know that a breast lift in Atlanta will bring their breasts to a higher position on the chest and improve the breast shape. But what they may not know is that there are several different ways to perform a breast lift. Four of the most common are:

Crescent Lift: As the name suggests, a crescent lift removes a crescent-shaped portion of skin near the top of the nipple to improve nipple positioning. This technique provides a minimal amount of lift to the actual breast and is best for women with very minor degrees of breast sag.

Benelli Lift: This approach is also called a “donut lift” because it involves a donut-shaped incision around the areola through which excess breast tissue is removed. Women with nipple asymmetry or mild degrees of breast sag are usually good candidates for a Benelli lift.

Lollipop Lift: A lollipop lift is very effective for women with poor skin laxity and low-hanging breasts. This technique uses an incision that goes around the nipple and then runs vertically down to the crease under the breast. A lollipop lift can elevate the nipple position, reduce areola size and improve the overall breast shape.

Anchor Lift: The anchor lift is ideal for women who need a significant amount of lifting. Incisions are similar to a lollipop lift, but an additional incision is made under the breast along the breast crease. This allows for more skin, fat and tissue to be removed, as well as more significant breast reshaping.
