Another form of breast lifting is the lolli-pop breast lift- referring to the shape of the scar that results from the excision of skin around the nipple areola complex and extending vertical inferiorly. This is also referred to as a vertical mastopexy or vertical breast lift. This procedure can achieve several goals. It has the ability to place the nipple areola complex to a higher position, as well as modify the size of the nipple areola complex as desired. Women with large nipple areola’s from childbirth and breast feeding, or who naturally have large NAC, can have the size reduced to a more desirable size with this procedure. Additionally, the skin envelope can be reduced, or tightened, to improve the placement or location of the breast mound, thus lifting it to a higher position on the chest wall. This achieves the goal of a more youthful breast in many cases without the need for implants. If however the breast is mainly lax from excess skin and has little breast tissue for volume, implant placement should be considered, particularly when desiring a fuller breast.
