The horizontal mastopexy goes by many names, including the “Horndesky Method” and “Ultimate Lift.” This technique enables surgeons to create a new position for the nipple without leaving a vertical scar from the areola to the breast crease. Instead, a horizontal incision is made across the entire breast above the areola, and the surgeon excises the skin below it while preserving the nipple.
 For your case, I would decide what breast size you want to be.  That will determine what size breast implant you need.  The size the breast implant will determine also what type of breast lift you need.  With a bigger implant, you may be able to get by with a donut breast lift or a circumperiareolar  mastopexy.  This may be the best way to start.  If you still don’t get your desired breast shape and look you desire, you can always convert to a vertical or anchor mastopexy.  I hope this answers your questions regarding avoiding the vertical component of the lollipop or inverted T or anchor last exit. If you have anymore questions regarding breast left, mastopexy, breast augmentation, vertical breast left, lollipop incision breast left for anchor incision breast left, please contact my office. Sincerely, Dr.Katzen. (Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgey and Member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery.)
Any licensed physician can perform liposuction, but it’s usually performed by plastic surgeons and dermatologists in their offices with local anesthesia, though it may be performed in a hospital under general anesthesia. No special training is required, though some doctors’ professional associations recommend it. When choosing a doctor, you may want to consider whether they have had specific training for liposuction and how many they have performed.

While I would need to examine you in person, 29 may be the distance in centimeters from sternal notch to nipple. That measurement is relatively long, implying that you have a significant amount of ptosis or sag. From your image, I would actually say that you don’t need the anchor incision breast lift, which requires the greatest scar burden, but it does appear that you would be best suited for a vertical breast lift with an incisional scar around the areola plus one down the lower pole of the breast. To achieve the degrees of lift you likely need, you need that vertical incision.
If you are any man (or women) what grab your attention when looking to a lady, The answer would be either Lips, breasts, or buttocks. Having a good proportion of the size and shape is of the Buttock with the rest of the body is an important factor that increases confidence is self-conscious women. If you would like to know more about this procedure, then buckle up!
Like you, I do have patients who come to me concerned about scarring before their surgery. Afterward, however, few patients ever mention it to me, because the overall surgical result is so transformative. There is a surgical technique called the periareolar breast lift, which only involves an incision around the nipple / areolar complex, and the incision hides well along the border of the more darkly pigmented areola. However, you would be better suited for the vertical breast lift, and it is important not to choose the wrong technique in pursuit of fewer scars. The technique used determines how much lift can be achieved. In general, there is a significant difference in the aesthetic outcome of a mediocre versus a high quality breast lift, and by choosing a suboptimal surgical technique, you may compromise your ultimate aesthetic result in terms of breast shape or perkiness.

However, minimizing the appearance of scars on the breast will be of vital importance to your surgeon. The whole point of a breast lift procedure is to make the breast more attractive, and conspicuous or heavy scarring defeats that point. Most scars will typically heal and fade within two years, but will always be present. Your surgeon will consider it a part of their job to keep these scars discrete, not a bonus. They may also prescribe cortisone cream and use silicone sheeting to help reduce the appearance of scars after surgery.
Do you have areas on your body that you wish were more sculpted? Do you have a few deposits of fat that affect the overall contour of your body? Liposuction could be a solution. Perhaps you have been thinking about it but wonder if the costs are within reach. Here is some information on liposuction cost in Canada as well as the factors that could have an impact on what you might pay.

Following surgery, Breast Lift scars are red and normally slightly raised, but over 3 – 6 months after surgery they usually fade and flatten out, becoming thin, barely visible lines. For incisions along the areolar border, the scars are usually partially disguised by the skin color contrast (between the dark areola and lighter breast skin) and the uneven surface of the areola.

The surgeries that risk more significant scarring are the much more common vertical or “lollipop” lift and the inverted T or “anchor” lift, which feature two and three incisions respectively. As they are more invasive surgeries than a crescent lift, you can expect more extensive scarring, but as long as you and your surgeon can provide proper care and observation, these can fade and can be easily hidden while you’re waiting for them to fade.

It’s important to note that some cosmetic surgery scars will only be visible when you’re undressed. This is true of breast lift scars. Because they will be located on the bottom portion of your breasts, they will most often be covered by your clothing, bra, or swimsuit. Only you, your doctor, and anyone with whom you’re intimate will ever see your breast lift scars.
For more invasive liposuction procedures, we encourage our patients to stay with a friend or family member afterward. If this is not possible, you may want to consider hiring a home health care worker to help take care of you. The cost of this will depend on the type of worker you hire (registered nurse, registered practical nurse, or personal support worker), and how long they stay.
Scars are inevitable after any incision in the skin, of course, because scarring is part of the body’s “self-repair” process. Breast lift surgery, in my experience, is a very satisfying procedure for the vast majority of patients–even with the unavoidable, often minimal, scarring. Scars may be in an anchor shape, in the crease below the breast and from the center of the crease up to the areola, although there are other types of scarring. When you choose an experienced surgeon, you’ll find that your breast lift scars are well hidden, even when wearing low-cut clothing. This is one of the signs of a skilled breast lift surgeon.

Finally, patients that cannot quit smoking, which is a critical necessity that can have an impact on the final outcome, for the pre-op period, as well as the recovery phase, are not considered not good candidates for any cosmetic procedure, including Brazilian butt lift. The same goes for binge drinkers. Now, if a patient insists on undergoing the surgery, despite the doctor's recommendations, then they should expect significantly increased costs if the plastic surgeon is willing to take the risk and operate on that patient.
I perform a liposuction breast lift/reduction known as Breast LipoLift®. This specialized technique spares more nerves and blood supply as well as removes tissue from the areas you don't want such as near the armpit and the lower portion hanging near your stomach. Once I use this to shape the breast, I then remove the excess skin to tighten the breast and create a more proportional silhouette with better cleavage. This procedure is also more accurate than traditional breast lifts or reductions since I use 3D measurements to uncover size asymmetries. During the procedure I remove exactly whatever is more from the larger side to get as close to symmetry as possible. Since I perform this less invasively the recovery time is faster and drains are not necessary. Over 90% of my patients are out to dinner the next evening taking only Advil and Tylenol if even needed. The size would depend on the proportion with your body versus going for a cup size.  It has been proven to have less complications than traditional breast reduction (please see my Breast LipoLift® page web page) and should not affect nipple sensation, mammograms, cancer risk or breast-feeding. 

Because of the large pattern of skin cutout with the Inverted T scar (Wise-pattern) the scar complication can look really bad. Here is a photo of one of these wounds using this surgical technique. Although it is not a life threatening problem, this wound complication at the incision location could certainly look very scary to the patient. In addition to scars, this procedure also tends to flatten the breast, instead of making them perky. I no longer perform this technique in my practice as I feel that the other surgical techniques are far superior.


Specialized bras are not necessary for breast lift recovery. A surgical bra will be placed on you during surgery, but it may not be the most comfortable support system for you. It is important to have mild compression and support in the early phases of recovery. However, this does not mean that you cannot adjust or exchange the surgical bra if it is uncomfortable.
Liposuction is needed in order to perform a Brazilian butt lift procedure. If you are simply having liposuction in 1 or 2 areas then local anesthesia can be used. If you are having liposuction done in more than a few areas, you may require the use of a general anesthetic. Brazilian butt lifts require fat transfer and re-injection. Buttock lifts are a surgical procedure that often involve implantation.
