Understanding Breast Lift Incisions with Dr. Chad Wu

Choosing the right path for you breast lift in Richmond hill, Midtown and Downtown Toronto.

When rejuvenating your figure with a breast lift, the journey begins with understanding the available avenues. Dr. Chad Wu’s clinic in Richmond Hill, Midtown and Downtown Toronto focuses on customizing each procedure to meet your unique needs and goals. A crucial element of this customization is selecting the appropriate type of incision for the breast lift, each with its benefits and applications.

Crescent Lift: Subtle Enhancements for Minimal Sagging

The crescent lift involves making a small incision midway along the upper edge of the areola. It’s the least invasive option, ideal for those who need a gentle lift or are undergoing augmentation. Dr. Chad Wu often recommends this approach in his Richmond Hill, Midtown and Downtown Toronto clinic for patients with minimal sagging who require a modest adjustment.

Peri-Areolar or “Donut” Lift: Balancing Lift with Scarring

For those with mild sagging but who desire more extensive correction than the crescent lift, the peri-areolar, or “Donut” lift, is a viable option. This method involves a circular incision around the areola, allowing a moderate facelift with less visible scarring. At Dr. Chad Wu’s clinic, this method is often chosen by patients who wish to achieve a more substantial facelift without needing significant incisions.

Vertical or “Lollipop” Lift: Combating Moderate Sagging

The vertical lift, or “Lollipop,” is designed for people with moderate sagging. It involves two incisions: one around the areola and the other vertically from the base of the areola to the breast fold. This technique, frequently used in Dr. Chad Wu’s clinic in Richmond Hill, Midtown and Downtown Toronto, offers a considerable lift and allows the breast to be reshaped more thoroughly than the Donut lift.

Inverted T or “Anchor” Lift: Maximum Reshaping for Extensive Sagging

For patients with considerable sagging who require extensive reshaping, the inverted T or “anchor” lift is often the best solution. This method involves three incisions: around the areola, vertically from the areola to the breast fold, and along the breast fold. This is the most complete facelift, offering maximum reshaping possibilities.

At Dr. Chad Wu’s clinic, located in the heart of Richmond Hill, Midtown and downtown Toronto, the path to your ideal figure is paved with expertise, care and a deep understanding of your personal aesthetic goals. Choosing the right incision for your breast lift is a crucial step in this journey, and with Dr. Wu’s guidance, you can embark on this path with confidence and clarity.
