Women are naturally concerned about scarring resulting from plastic surgery, which is understandable. When you go out of your way to improve your appearance, you don’t want to mar it with scars at the same time. Yet, the nature of any surgery includes an incision of one sort or another. And, incisions used in breast lift procedures, as in any others, tend to leave scars.
The good news is that the techniques developed for breast lift surgery place incisions where they are least likely to be seen. Most scars eventually fade and are minimally visible in most patients. Scarring will be in proportion to the type and extent of incisions, which is determined by the degree of lifting necessary. The greater the amount of lift required means the greater the potential for scarring. Procedures that require less lifting will also require limited incision patterns.
Your plastic surgeon can describe the various techniques used for breast lift surgery and which one(s) might give you the best results. If you feel that the breast lift procedure(s) recommended for you might leave more scars than a breast augmentation, that procedure may be an alternative option.
Dr. Paul Angelchik has gained a superior reputation as a skilled plastic surgeon, as you can see by the photos on his website. Most scars are barely visible, if they can be seen, at all.
