Vertical Mastopexy


A Mastopexy is an operation to help elevate the breast from a position that is too low on the chest wall. Oftentimes a woman’s breasts will change over the course of time. These factors may include: gravity, aging, weight fluctuations, breast-feeding, pregnancy and may even stem from congenital birth defects. A Mastopexy is intended to address and correct these problems, even address the area of the nipple areolar complex. Which can become thin, effaced and larger than it should be. The Vertical Mastopexy is a technique used to reshape and restore the breasts and can be used for medium to significant reduction.

The Vertical Mastopexy uses a technique called a ‘Lollipop Incision’ developed by the surgeon Madame LeJour in Europe in the 1990s. Utilized to reduce the size of the breast needed to elevate the area, and move the nipple to a higher, more proper position on the breast. The advantage being the size of the incision which is quite small and minimal compared to the incisions of a normal anchor mastopexy or Weiss Pattern. Which can have more complication to blood flow than its vertical counterpart.

The ‘Lollipop Incision’ circles around the nipple and forms a line that extends from the nipple down to the lower lateral aspect and fold of the breast. Allowing the extra skin at the base of the breast to be removed and the nipple to be elevated. Creating a smooth nice attractive contour at the base of the breast and making it hidden entirely by any brassiere or bathing suit. Together the incisions elevate the projection of the breast and restore the nipple to its best, lifted position.

A Vertical Mastopexy, in Dr. Jacobsen’s experience gives a much better-looking breast. Having the least amount of incisions and adding the most projection to the breast. Known for being safe and working very well on most patients with breasts that are either too large or too low. The one caveat being if the nipple areolar complex is quite excessively low, which can be addressed by utilizing different techniques.

Although there are benefits to every procedure, the most significant advantage of the vertical mastopexy is how safe it is. Having the least amount of incisions and best circulation of blood flow. Unlike the Weiss Pattern Mastopexy the vertical mastopexy avoids having multiple incisions that break the breast into separate blood supplies. Since the Vertical Mastopexy only removes soft tissue from the lower lateral portion of the breast and uses the minimal amount of incisions, this procedure maintains blood supply to the entire breast and nipple. Helping the area to heal quickly as possible. As a result, a Vertical Mastopexy can be repeated over and over or adjusted. Whereas the Weiss Pattern Mastopexy cannot, without significant risk to loss of soft tissue.

  • review rating 5  I'm having a hard time with this because, I can't say enough good things about this office! Dr. Jacobsen is an amazing surgeon. He is always available, for any questions or concern. His staff go way beyond any other office I have seen. They are more than helpful with insurance, appointments, or any issue or questions. The office is both beautiful, and comfy. Like I said can't say enough.

  • review rating 5  I couldn't be happier with my procedure. Dr. J has the most kind and relaxing manner and he is the ultimate professional. I had a fatty tumor on my forehead that he removed, as well as breast reconstruction. The breast reconstruction was overdue as I had breast cancer with multiple lumpectomies, biopsies and radiation. It left the tissue hard and my old implant like a rock. He was able to correct all of the problems and I'm much happier with my appearance. Although you may find it odd at first that you can't get anyone by phone their response time is amazing. I emailed the office on a Sunday afternoon that I had a problem and within ten minutes (no exaggeration) I had a text back that a prescription had been called in to my pharmacy. I've had procedures with other doctors around the Valley and never had an experience more pleasant, nor one which I was happier with the results.

  • review rating 5  I've had four visits with Dr. Jacobsen over the past 2.5 years, the first after the removal of 1/3 of my bottom lip from skin cancer, and the last for a biopsy of possible skin cancer on my nose. Each time, he has treated me with kindness and respect, and also had a level of confidence that made me feel relaxed with whatever he thought best for the particular problem. Thus far, the results have proven him correct. He has quickly become my go-to for any problem or condition that may create a cosmetic "issue". His office and staff make you feel welcomed and comfortable, and he promptly and generously responds to questions or concerns by email. One visit and you'll find these things out yourself.

  • review rating 5  I had skin cancer removed from my forehead for the first time and my dermatologist's office scheduled an appointment with Dr. Jacobsen on my behalf. Not only was the staff accommodating but they actually got another patient to reschedule so that they could fit me in to close up the (rather large!) wound. I still had no idea what was going on, what everything was going to look like, how much it was going to cost, etc and I was under a considerable amount of stress. Every staff member I interacted with put me more and more at ease; they're more worried about you as a person than they are about you as a payment. Dr. Jacobsen is very kind and so concerned about the wellbeing and comfort of his patients. I was in very good hands. I am now going through round two and I am back in his hands -- and couldn't feel more secure. The pictures shared are from my first procedure -- about 2 weeks apart. The scar has disappeared even more and is nearly unnoticeable even without a light layer of makeup (as in the after photo)
