Best Candidates for the Short Scar Breast Lift

If you’ve thought about getting a breast lift to make your breasts appear rounder or perkier, you may be worried about the potential scarring involved. Sagging and drooping breasts are easily corrected with a breast lift but this procedure can cause some deep, visible scars that take years to heal. The short scar breast lift is a variation on the traditional technique and was designed for women who are only getting a small amount of work done on the breast tissue. This procedure may be a better option for women who only need a very small adjustment to the breasts, and want to avoid the long incisions and scarring involved with the traditional breast lift procedure.

Are You a Candidate for the Short Scar Breast Lift?

You might be a good candidate for the short scar breast lift if you:

  • Are eligible for a less demanding type of breast lift procedure
  • You only need a very slight “lift”
  • You don’t have extensive sagging or drooping of the breasts
  • Your breasts are fairly firm already
  • You have good skin elasticity

The ideal candidate for the short scar breast lift is a woman who is experiencing very mild sagging and just wants to be able to wear low-cut tops or dresses with confidence. The scars from this procedure are only visible right under the nipple so they will never be noticeable when wearing low-cut shirts, tank tops, dresses, or sports bras.

The recovery time for this procedure is also much shorter than your typical breast lift or breast enhancement procedures, so you can expect to return to regular activities within several days of surgery.
