After 4 years
Details of the Inverted-T Breast Lift surgery
- Combining the vertical key-hole incision and transverse incisions made in the breast fold allows for maximal removal of skin and shaping of the breast.
- The areola remains attached to the breast tissue, nerves, and blood vessels.
- In addition to skin removal and tightening, the deep layer of breast tissue may be sutured together to shape the breast as well.
- Finally, the areola is slid into a higher position and the surrounding skin is wrapped around the breast tissue and closed with dissolvable sutures under the skin.
- The final scar is like an anchor or inverted "T", with a scar around the areola, straight down the center of the breast to the breast fold and across the base of the breast.
- The length of the scar in the breast fold varies according to the degree of skin excess at the lower aspect of the breast.
- This technique is used in moderate to severe cases of breast ptosis
