Breast Lifts – Incision Placement – Washington D.C.
Breast lifts are a cosmetic procedure that are designed to surgically enhance and lift the breasts, along with removing excess tissue from them. Breast lifts, also known as mastopexies, come in a variety of techniques but generally focus around the nipple-areolar complex (NAC).
Generally, breast lifts will require incisions to be around the NAC. A common method to lift the breast involves three incisions—one that circles around the areola, another along the bottom edge of the areola to the crease under the breast, and third made horizontally, beneath the breast along the natural curve of the breast. It ultimately comes down to what is right in terms of your body type and your goals.
Board-certified, experienced plastic surgeons like the doctors at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Washington will be able to tailor the procedure to suit your needs and achieve the best results.
