With the aging of the Baby Boomer generation (those born between 1944 and 1964), and Generation X fast on its heels (those born between 1965 and 1983), it should not be surprising that the field of anti-aging medicine is advancing. The fact that facial rejuvenation treatments are among the most popular of all cosmetic procedures should tell us quite a bit about the continuing popularity of procedures to minimize the effects of aging.

A body lift surgery can be life changing. After major weight loss, only body contouring and sculpting surgeries can get rid of the loose skin and stretch marks left behind. The results of a body lift can be dramatic, as many of Dr. Mark Deuber’s patients at his Dallas, TX plastic surgery center can attest. (more…)
There is absolutely no argument that current popular culture favors well-defined jaw lines. Strong chins are a sign of determination, good character, intelligence, and high moral standards. Conversely, weak chins often signify shiftiness, laziness, and questionable morals and character. (more…)
Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) is an ideal surgical procedure for women who have breasts that droop or sag. This drooping and sagging may be the result of advanced age, weight loss, or the effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing. Whatever the case may be, we recommend breast lift surgery at our Dallas, TX practice to help women have breasts that are pert, perky, and firm.
In order to achieve these results, incisions have to be made on the breasts to remove tissue and revise their overall shape. The most common approach is using a series of incisions that form a shape similar to a ship anchor. Let’s consider the advantages of this surgical technique and why it’s ideal for many breast lift patients.
The Traditional Anchor Incision Method
The traditional anchor method for breast lift surgery consists of these three incisions:
- A circular incision around the areola (the skin around the nipple)
- A lateral incision along the crease where the bottom of the breast meets the chest
- A vertical incision along the lower curve of the breast to connect the prior two incisions
Why the Anchor Shape Is Effective
The anchor shape incision method allows surgeons to make major adjustments to the breast tissue. A similarly shaped incision is made during breast reduction surgery. Tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) also uses an anchor shape incision method to address loose skin along the lower abdominal area.
From a practical standpoint, it’s a good idea to address drooping and sagging from the underside of the breast rather than from the top of the breast. It’s an effective and sensible means of removing excess skin and tissue before pulling the remaining skin tighter. When it comes to post-surgical scarring, placing incisions around the underside of the breast is better for overall aesthetics as well.
How Visible Is Scarring after Surgery?
Scarring is a reality after any kind of surgery. Following breast lift, there will be an anchor-shaped scar along the lower portion of the breast. Thankfully this scar can be hidden by undergarments, tops, and bathing suits.
Surgical scars will fade with time, becoming less and less visible as the months and years pass. Proper planning and aftercare can help minimize the scarring.
Other Breast Lift Incision Methods
The anchor-shaped incision is effective, but it’s not the only option for an effective breast lift. When women experience just a little drooping or sagging of the breasts, fewer or less extensive incisions are needed to address their needs.
For example, some breast lifts can be performed with a lollipop incision, which consists of the areolar incision and a vertical incision along the lower curve of the breast. Minor drooping of the breasts might be address through an incision around the areola alone. In addition, some breast lifts may involve placing breast implants, which can present new options for surgical incisions.
During a consultation, we will assess your situation and determine the ideal incision method and approach to surgery. All efforts will be made to minimize scarring and ensure optimal results.

You may also start to notice scars left behind from acne in your adolescent years. None of these issues seems serious enough to warrant a major cosmetic surgical approach, such as a facelift, but you have discovered that facial rejuvenation creams and lotions are not getting the job done as well as you would like.

One of the signs of aging around the face is often sagging of the cheek and jaw area. This can lead to jowls, as well as what are sometimes referred to as marionette or puppet lines, leading from the outer corners of the mouth down toward the jaw line. Sagging cheeks can give the face a heavier look, which can make you appear sad or unhappy, even if that is not your general personality or mood. (more…)
