Will There Be a Scar From My Breast Lift?

Watch this video by Samuel Shatkin Jr., MD, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Buffalo, NY as he explains the scarring you can expect after undergoing a breast lift procedure.

One of the main concerns that some people have is what about the scarring? So when we perform a breast lift, unlike a breast augmentation, the incisions are a little bit more involved. In most breast lifts, we have to do incisions around the areola. They extend down below the areola and then in the inframammary crease or the crease below the breast horizontally. That’s like an upside down T. That procedure leaves scars, but the scars are always concealed by clothing, and they usually heal very nicely.
