In the majority of cases, a breast lift requires one or more incisions to reduce skin laxity and elevate the breasts to a higher, more youthful position. As a result, many women considering this procedure worry that the resulting scars will be highly visible. So is a breast lift without scars possible? Incision-less mastopexy (breast lift surgery) has yet to be developed, but it is possible to minimize the appearance of scars until they are barely noticeable.
Dr. Thomas Lintner, our board certified plastic surgeon, uses the most advanced breast lift modalities available to reduce the size of the incisions. With time, the scars should fade and become smooth white lines. While some light lines will remain, there are many methods of reducing their appearance, including over-the-counter creams and skin treatments. Additionally, it’s important to note that most women are so thrilled with the firmer, more youthful look of their breasts that they don’t mind the scars. You’ll want to discuss your concerns with Dr. Lintner during your initial consultation, and he will provide additional information about what to expect from recovery.
