What is Dr. Vitolo’s Scar Less Breast Lift?
The idea behind the Scar Less Breast Lift was a simple one: everyone already has a natural scar that can provide access to the breast tissue, thus allowing Dr. Vitolo to perform this procedure without visible scarring.
That’s right: that natural scar we’re referring to here is your belly button!
With Dr. Vitolo’s Scar Less Breast Lift technique, a half-inch incision is made in the depths of the belly button. When the incision heals, it is virtually invisible because it is a “scar on a scar”, meaning there’s no new scar that hints at your procedure.
This incision provides Dr. Vitolo with the opportunity to create two tunnels, extending from the navel in a “V” shape, one to each breast. The tunnels are made with a tubular instrument that is passed upward from the navel in the fat layer that is just beneath the skin, not inside the abdomen.
These tunnels allow Dr. Vitolo to insert a saline filled breast implant beneath the breast tissue. The implant replaces the breast volume that has been lost over the years thru pregnancy, weight loss and aging. This increase in volume corrects the drooping breast giving it a natural uplifted and more youthful appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Scar Less Breast Lift?
You’re a good candidate for this innovative procedure if you’re bothered by the following:
- Moderately sagging, drooping breasts
- Loss of breast volume after pregnancy, breastfeeding
- Excess breast skin
- Your nipples look as though they’re pointing in a downward direction
This procedure is effective by restoring the lost volume in the breasts, consequently, most women will need to have larger breasts than they have now. The procedure creates a natural-looking, slopped contour breast, not a high “perky” breast like a sixteen-year-old, and is not for all women.
