Why are my scars so big after a breast lift?

Hi, this is Dr. Hourglass, and welcome to another video in our channel Wonder Breasts. Today we are going to discuss: Why my scars are so big after breast lift. In this channel we discuss everything related to breast surgery.
Welcome back! The purpose of the breast lift is to raise sagging breasts. The more severe the sagginess, the larger the number of surgical incisions will be and the more visible the scars.
During the breast lift, the surgeon reconstructs and raises the subcutaneous mammary tissues and the excess skin is removed. Frequently the areola is reduced, and it is reassembled with the nipple, which gives a pretty curved shape to the breasts.
A scar is always performed around the areola. When talking about breast lift procedure, the nipple always needs to be repositioned. In some cases of small and slightly falling breasts, it will be sufficient to have just the incision around the areola. But if the breast lift is moderate to severe, the surgeon might need to perform an additional incision vertically and horizontally.
Even if the breast lift is performed as a stand-alone intervention, in a vast majority of cases, two incisions will be needed: the one around the areola and another one going vertically from the areola edge to the inframammary fold. These incisions allow the surgeon to give the breasts a nice curved shape.
In the case of a more severe breast ptosis, it will be necessary to remove a larger amount of skin during the breast lift. It will therefore take more scars to succeed in creating a beautiful shape of the breast. The third incision is usually performed in this case, and it is positioned under the breasts in the inframammary fold.
If you are left with big scars after the breast lift surgery, it usually means you had severe sagginess that could not have been corrected with just a periareolar scar.
Even if the scars caused during the breast lift are larger than for a simple breast augmentation, the patient satisfaction rate remains exceptionally high.
