Anchor Lift

Anchor Lift

Anchor Lift

This is patient was displeased with the appearance of her breasts. She did not seek increased size but wanted a better shape. Due to the excess of skin, I recommended an anchor lift. No breast tissue (except for a little skin) was removed.

The anchor lift technique in a breast lift, often referred to as the pattern of Wise, is designed to address sagging or ptotic breasts. This approach entails creating incisions around the areola, extending vertically down the breast, and along the base of the breast, forming an anchor-like shape. One notable benefit of this technique is the level of control it offers in reshaping the breast, allowing surgeons to achieve a desired final shape with precision. However, a notable drawback of the anchor lift is the presence of extensive scarring, which can be a concern for some patients. Despite this, the anchor lift remains a preferred option in cases involving large breasts or significant skin laxity, where less aggressive techniques may yield suboptimal results.

Additionally, the anchor lift technique is also known for its versatility in addressing various degrees of breast ptosis (sagging). The procedure can be tailored to meet the specific needs and anatomical characteristics of each patient, making it a highly customizable option for breast rejuvenation. Furthermore, advancements in surgical techniques and technology have led to refinements in the anchor lift procedure, allowing for improved outcomes and reduced scarring compared to older methods. Additionally, the anchor lift may be combined with other procedures such as breast augmentation or reduction to achieve comprehensive aesthetic results, further enhancing its effectiveness in breast enhancement surgeries.
