Vertical Breast Lift

Another popular choice, the vertical breast lift procedure.

Let's Get Vertical

Vertical breast lift is a great option for many women.

The vertical breast lift technique is ideally suited for saggy breasts that are wide and have a nipple droop that requires greater than 5 centimeters of lift. It is also a good option for those patients desiring a better upper pole and better long-term results than which is provided by periareolar breast lift alone. The vertical incision is made along with a periareolar incision. More of the excess skin that develops during sagginess can be removed using the vertical approach and the result is a more advanced breast lift. In addition, the breast gland can be reshaped and lifted through these incisions with or without the use of breast implants. Breast implants, however, will add more volume to the upper pole of the breast and can give a fuller result. In addition to creating a powerful breast lift, the vertical technique offers less scars (about 50% less) than the more traditional wise pattern breast lift technique. If you are not sure if the vertical breast lift is the right procedure for you check out the other breast lift options:
