What Is a Scarless Breast Lift?

Scarless Breast Lift

One thing many breast lift patients are concerned about is scarring. Will I have breast lift scars? How noticeable will they be? Is there any way to get a breast lift without the scars?

A breast lift minus the scars could be for you. 

However, the first thing to note here is that although noninvasive breast lift procedures do exist, they are not the norm. That is, if you have moderate to severe sagging, you’ll most likely require a breast lift surgery that will result in scars.

With that said, if you just have a small amount of drooping, a scarless lift may be ideal.

Why Get a Breast Lift in the First Place?

A breast lift (also called mastopexy) is a cosmetic procedure that lifts the breasts and repositions the nipples to create a more attractive, youthful profile. Breast lifts can be performed with a variety of techniques and incision patterns.

The benefits of a breast lift include:

  • Breasts that sit higher on the chest
  • Breasts that appear fuller and rounder (less flat or pancake-like)
  • Breasts that appear firmer
  • Improved projection of the nipple
  • Less irritation beneath the breasts (itching, chafing, redness)
  • A more youthful position of the breasts

What Is a Scarless Breast Lift?

Scarless Breast Lift Near MeA breast lift without the scars is a minimally invasive procedure that lifts the breasts and provides for a more youthful, perky appearance. However, it does not require the traditional incisions that go along with a regular breast lift. This means no scars after surgery.

This procedure may differ depending on the patient’s anatomy and needs. However, all scarless breast lift patients must only require minimal lifting. Alternatively, this procedure can sometimes be used to improve breast symmetry. Having an excessive amount of loose sagging breast skin or other complications may preclude you from this surgery.

BodyTite™ Technology

Often, a noninvasive or “scarless” breast lift will be performed with radio frequency energy via a skin tightening technology called BodyTite. This procedure is good for individuals with good skin elasticity and who only need a slight modification to the perkiness of their breasts.

For example, if a patient’s nipples have begun to droop as a result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, etc., BodyTite may be used as a skin tightening procedure to shrink the skin on the upper poles of the breasts, which will, in turn, lift the nipples.

Fat Transfer or Fillers for Breast Lift Results

Often, patients come to us with concerns about drooping, sagging breasts that they want to lift and plump. Depending on your anatomy and what you’re looking for in your results, we can often combine various procedures to create your desired results without requiring (large) incisions.

For example, we may be able to combine BodyTite, which will tighten and shrink the skin on the upper portion of the breasts, with a fat transfer procedure, which can plump this area to create a rounder appearance (fat cells are taken from elsewhere on the body). In addition, some patients are good candidates for fillers or injectables, which can naturally improve the breast shape without leaving large scars. Take a look at some scarless breast lift before and after pictures (and note the methods used) to get an idea of the options available.

How Can I Maximize My No Scar Breast Lift Results?

Here are some tips for optimizing your results after a scarless or minimally invasive breast lift surgery.

Follow your surgeon’s instructions.

Your surgeon knows exactly how you should recover in order to attain the best results. Follow their instructions closely.

Get plenty of rest.

Sleep is restorative, and there is no time you need it more than when you’re recovering from surgery. Don’t rush into activity, but instead, allow your body to heal naturally.

Be patient.

Healing comes with time. Don’t rush the process, and you will see optimal results.

Maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Exercise, eat a well-balanced diet, and drink plenty of water.

Should I Get a Scarless Lift or Traditional Lift?

The type of breast lift you decide to get will usually depend on the following factors:

  • What is concerning you most about how your breasts currently look. Is it sagging or drooping? Flatness? Nipples that point downward or extra large nipples? Excess skin and wrinkles? Stretch marks?
  • How much sagging and drooping you have. Patients with a minimal amount of sagging and drooping will have more options where scarless lifts are concerned.
  • Your skin elasticity. Some patients with poor skin elasticity will need to get a traditional breast lift if they want to see the best results.
  • Whether you have excess fat in other areas. If you’d simultaneously like to get rid of excess fat on your flanks, abdomen, upper arms, etc., we can often perform a fat transfer, which will get rid of that fat and transfer it to your breasts to add volume and plumpness.

Can a Scarless Breast Lift Be Combined With Other Procedures?

Yes! Some breast lift patients opt to undergo a fat transfer procedure, for example. This procedure will add volume to the breasts using the patient’s own fat, which can be harvested from “trouble” spots such as the flanks or lower abdomen.

In addition, many other plastic surgeries can be combined with a noninvasive breast lift, including liposuction, breast augmentation, tummy tuck surgery, etc.

What Kind of Scars Do You Get With a Standard Breast Lift?

Scarless Breast Lift Before And AfterOne reason patients sometimes want to avoid a traditional breast lift is to avoid the scars that are an inevitable part of this surgery. Any standard breast lift is going to leave visible scars.

Now, your surgeon is going to do their best to locate these scars discreetly, and there are also steps we can take to reduce their appearance as they heal and in the subsequent months and years.

Still, most breast lift patients who opt for a traditional lift are going to have at least one scar around the outside of each areola — and sometimes, one scar down the bottom center of each breast. Certain patients will also need to have a third scar, which will run along the breast crease beneath each breast.
