One of the most invasive breast lift incisions is considered to be the lollipop incision. In the lollipop incision, the surgeon will start with a donut style incision in which he or she will remove a donut shaped piece of skin from around the areola. After the surgeon removes this skin, he or she will then make an incision from this “donut" down the underside of the breasts to about halfway between the areola and the crease of the breasts. The resulting formation is what gives this incision its namesake.
After the incisions are made, the surgeon will then use dissolving sutures under the skin as a means to help support the breast and underlying tissue while at the same time reducing the weight and pressure that is placed on the incision while standing upright. After the surgeon adds these disposable sutures, he or she will then pull the skin tight and close up the incisions.
The final results are nothing less than amazing especially when compared to the sagging that the breasts had undergone prior to the procedure. Furthermore, during the recovery period, you will have a lollipop looking scar on each of your breasts until enough time has passed that the skins natural pigmentation returns and the scars fade away.
There is still a chance that the scars will be visible to the untrained eye, but this is mostly due to your body's own anatomy. In the event that the scar does not fade away by the end of the 12th month following the lollipop breast lift, you may opt to go in to see a dermatologist to have a laser resurfacing performed to take care of the scaring.
Unlike the other major incision types associated with a breast lift, the lollipop breast lift incision is for the most extreme cases of sagging and drooping of the breasts. Furthermore, due to the fact that it is the only incision type that is not limited to the circumference of the areola, there is also a greater chance of forming visible scars along the vertical incision. The incision which circumfrates the areola will most likely never really be visible due to the contrast of colors between the areola and the surrounding breast skin.
