Vectra 3D Imaging
Now available for Mastopexy.
See your results before surgery by having the machine take your photo then instantly see your 3D image on the screen. Do you need implants? Which incision do you need? We can show you with the Vectra 3D.
The benefits of the Vectra 3D imaging:
Probably the least common incision since very little true lift can be obtained. It does slightly lift the nipple position and implants can be placed through the same location if needed.
Periareolar (Donut) incision
Hidden along the color change of the areola. Can be a very discreet scar in some patients. It can provide several cm of lifting to the nipple and also reduce the excess skin of the breast with a small scar. Implants can be placed through here as well.
Vertical (Lolipop) Incision
Probably the most common incision since more lifting can be performed with this incision and more sagging breast skin can be removed. Commonly performed with implant placement for more upper pole fullness.
The most traditional scar that can remove the maximum amount of skin and provide the most lifting if needed. Implants can also be used and placed through the same incisions.
Submuscular (below the muscle) Breast Augmentation
In 95% of the cases, the breast implants will be placed in a submuscular position for 2 main reasons:
Dual Plane Breast Augmentation
This occurs when the implant is placed behind the muscle in the top 2/3 of the implant and behind the gland in the lower 1/3 of the implant. This is performed by surgeons who have experience in this technique in those patients who do not wants the scars from a breast lift but still want implants and they have some mild sagging to the breasts. The dual place creates a lifting and rotation of the breast tissue.
Subglandular (above the muscle) Breast Augmentation
This is performed infrequently due to the higher risk of capsular contracture. There are some patients who do benefit from this type of placement:
