Will I Have Scars After A Breast Lift?

By August 15, 2022 No Comments
Surgical scarring—especially after plastic surgery—is one of the biggest concerns for patients who undergo cosmetic procedures. Even when the scars are typically hidden under clothing, they can still bother patients. Breast scarring is a great example of usually hidden scarring that can cause distress. Let’s look at the frequently asked question, “Will I have scars after a breast lift?” A breast lift usually involves fairly extensive incisions in the shape of the anchor—the incision stretches around the nipple, down the breast, and through the inframammary fold. This will inevitably leave scarring. While every patient will heal differently, the incisions around the nipple and areola tend to heal well and generally become quite indistinguishable. The vertical incision down the breast is often the one that causes the most concern. It will take some time to heal and may remain visible for a while. Following post-operative procedures and taking proactive steps to minimize scarring such as with Scar Protocol will help keep the scars discreet.
