Dr. Coleman's Comments:
Breast lifts can be accomplished through various approaches. Sometimes, just a breast augmentation can lift the nipple to a satisfactory point, where additional surgery is not required.
Sometimes if the nipple is too low on the breast, a simple nipple lift is sufficient to create the natural appearance of a more youthful breast.
In the more advanced cases, a standard mastopexy is done, leaving a small anchor-shaped scar which surrounds the nipple and runs down and under the breast. The scar is usually small and less noticeable than patients expect. Below are photos that demonstrate these various techniques and show the minimal scarring.
