Although there is no incisionless technique for breast lift surgery, our plastic surgeons can carefully place the incisions in locations that are naturally discreet. In many cases, the incisions can be hidden along the outer edge of the areola or within the crease underneath the breast. Regardless of which incision type is recommended for your breast lift, any post-operative scarring can be easily concealed by a bra or bikini top. During your preliminary consultation, your plastic surgeon will discuss the exact location of your incisions and explain the techniques that will be used to minimize any visible scarring.
In addition to placing breast lift incisions in easily concealed areas, our plastic surgeons will also help you understand what to expect with your scarring over time. Immediately after the breast lift procedure, incisions may appear red or raised. However, over time they should gradually fade into a thin white line. Topical creams that are available over-the-counter as well as laser skin treatments may further reduce the appearance of breast lift scarring.
