What is a Lollipop Lift?
Patients in New York who choose to undergo a breast lift have the option of which type of incision to use. There are many types of incision techniques to choose from, and one of the most popular options is the lollipop lift.
A lollipop lift is not in reference of the operation, rather, it is the appearance of the breast lift incisions. It is referred to as a lollipop because an incision is made around the boarder of the areola, extending vertically down to the breast fold, mimicking the shape of a lollipop. The scars from these incisions can easily be hidden under a bathing suit or clothing when healed, so patients do not need to worry about visible scars on a daily basis.
A lollipop lift is generally performed with a vertical mastopexy technique other variations, Many patients can choose the lollipop incision if they have reasonable skin tone and a fair amount of gland breast tissue. Patients are also considered excellent candidates if they are physically healthy, do not smoke, and have realistic surgery expectations.
If patients’ breasts are extremely large and desire a reduction, or if they have severe skin laxity, then the lollipop incision is not appropriate for them.
