Breast Augmentation with Scarless Breast Lift
When it comes to the upper portion of a woman’s physique, it’s impossible to separate size and shape. Breast augmentation with a scarless breast lift from Dr. J combines two outstanding procedures to sculpt a bust that’s the ideal size and shape for the patient – without any extra scars.
Why Get a Breast Augmentation with a Scarless Breast Lift?
Some women may only want to add a lot of volume and size to their breasts; others just want them to be perky and teardrop-shaped. A great many women, however, want it all – size, volume, and shape…and they want their outcomes to look as natural as possible. A widely respected Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon with an international following, Dr. J. has provided countless patients with a breast lift and breast augmentation without lasting visible scars.
Also known as Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., Dr. J crafts each procedure to suit the specific needs of the patient. In the case of breast augmentation and scarless breast lift, it’s not only about sculpting breasts that are beautiful on their own but crafting a bust that truly flatters a woman’s head-to-toe appearance. Dr. J’s patients regularly rave about their outcomes on Yelp and RealSelf and often volunteer to share their results on our online breast augmentation with breast lift gallery.
How are a Breast Augmentation and Scarless Breast Lift Different?
Though the two surgeries are often conflated and referred to simply as “boob jobs,” breast augmentations and lifts are two distinct procedures that, nevertheless, work together to create a beautiful harmony. Dr. J’s approach is marked not only by his skill and artistry but also by his ability to minimize the number, size, and visibility of incisions.
No two procedures are exactly the same, but Dr. J’s technique is often to use an incision that can be employed for both the augmentation and breast lift (mastopexy) procedures. During a breast augmentation procedure with a scarless breast lift, Dr. J uses incisions around the areola’s border. These allow the doctor to perform both the lift and augmentation through the same incision. He may also use a crescent incision which removes a small amount of skin at the top of the breast shaped something like a croissant or a crescent moon. Dr. J then lifts the breast upwards, changing the location of the areola and nipple area with a single incision.
Another type of scarless breast lift is the circumareolar technique, aka the donut incision. The technique involves making circular incisions around the areola complex.
For comparison, anchor incisions (keyhole), which start around the areola, involve three separate scars. Vertical incisions (lollipop technique) also start around the areola but they go towards the crease of the breast, naturally leading to a longer and more visible scar.
What Makes an Areola Incision Scarless?
Incisions in the areola complex are far less conspicuous for two reasons. First, the skin of the areola is darker, making incisions harder to see. Moreover, the areola is the most private area of the breast and is therefore hidden by clothing the large majority of the time. With these procedures, scarring should be completely invisible even when wearing a fairly skimpy bikini-style top.
The options for breast augmentation with a scarless breast lift are the same as for other breast procedures.
The selection of the right kind of augmentation is a highly complex matter. Indeed, there are enough variations among silicone implants that researchers have proposed creating an algorithm to help doctors make their selections.* Dr. J, however, is an expert on all of the options and a believer in the human touch in matters relating to aesthetics. He will propose a bespoke treatment plan designed to suit the specific patient’s needs and appearance goals.
