Breast lifts are a sophisticated cosmetic surgery that can address a variety of concerns about sagging breasts and misaligned areolae. Depending on your particular goals and your body type, breast lifts are offered in a variety of techniques. After a thorough consultation and evaluation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine, you will be walked through the details of the procedure and be asked a series of questions regarding your goals and expectations. Keeping these in mind, the doctor will offer his expertise and make recommendations. Examples of incision types the doctor will consider for your breast lift are anchor ring, anchor shank and anchor stock. The anchor ring is a circular incision around the nipple, the anchor shank is an incision along the lower edge of the nipple, whereas the anchor stock is a horizontal incision along the bottom of the breast where it meets the chest. If you would like to discuss breast lifts in greater detail, please contact Dr. Sundine for a consultation at one of our offices across Orange County.
