Everyone getting a breast lift wants to have the shortest scar, the best quality scar, and the best breast shape possible. Sometimes, all three goals are achievable with one lift type, but more often there is some give and take. For instance, in most situations a scar that is just around the areola results in the shortest scar, but it is often the widest scar as well with the least ability to project the breast. (Even still, it also sometimes gives the best result in some situations.) Since Dr. Teitelbaum performs all the different types of mastopexy procedures in conjunction with a breast augmentation, he can help you sort through your options to find what will give you the result you want based on the shape of your breasts.
