Lollipop Lift Alternative
In the world of cosmetic procedures there are many women that desire to receive a breast lift. Women’s breast change overtime, and many hope to have a more youthful and lifted look. Breasts generally change from pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuation, age, gravity, and genetics.
A breast lift is also known medically as a mastopexy, which raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. There are several types of breast lifts out on the market today. The most popular surgical option is a Lollipop Lift. However, many women are not aware that there are non-surgical options for lifting breasts. In this article we will discuss the pros and cons of lollipop lifts, and why at WellMedica we recommend a different alternative.
The Lollipop Lift
This is a unique surgical technique surgeons use to lift the breasts, elevate the nipple, reduce areolar size, and reduce excess skin in horizontal direction. It is called the “lollipop lift” (also known as the vertical lift) because the incision that is made to lift the breasts is vertical, and circles the areolas and extends downward. It does not continue horizontally along the breast, and the shape of the incision is that of a lollipop. Skin is tightened and pulled horizontally towards the vertical incision, thus results appear firmer and better defined in shape.
Pros and Cons of the Lollipop Lift
The lollipop lift is great for someone who wants to have a moderate lift. Not for someone who has extremely heavy and sagging breasts. Therefore, this lift does limit some patients. The incision is also smaller compared to other ways of surgically lifting the breasts, yet if not done right still has the possibility of leaving much larger scars than anticipated. Some women feel having an incision is worth it for the results they want. However, most women do not realize that there are non-surgical options out there that leave NO scar, and do not require you to have to go under the knife. ThermiTight Breast is a new form of technology that many do not know about, but delivers amazing results.
ThermiBreast, an Alternative to Lollipop Lift and Surgical Options
The classic way for breast lift surgery mostly leaves visible scars around the nipples and on the bottom half of the breast. But WellMedica promises to provide you the latest and best solution for your problems. We introduce you an alternative to a surgical breast lift called ThermiTight Breast. ThermiTight is a procedure that uses a small catheter to emit radio frequency underneath the skin to heat it. The skin then tightens and is smoother. ThermiTight of the breasts is perfect for women who have relatively small breasts with minimal sagging who desire a small lift of their breasts and elevation of their nipples. Usually, Dr. Dima at WellMedica doesn’t recommend it for women with breast implants. The best part of getting a ThermiTight on Breast is that it leaves no scars.
What to Expect from ThermiBreast Procedure
The saggy breasts are marked before the procedure and two or three small needle holes are made on each breast around the nipples where the ThermiTight probe enters underneath the skin. Then radio frequency emits from the tip of the probe and causes the skin to contract and tighten. The entire procedure takes about an hour to perform. The collagen in the skin remodels and tightens immediately and then over the next two months. The nipple position is lifted by 1-3 cm on each breast. Lastly, new collagen forms and may also improve the appearance of thin skin or stretch marks on the breasts.
