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  Dr. Jacobsen surgically treated my husband for a serious and complicated wound infection. It took a lot of determination on Dr. J's part to get him through this ordeal. We would email photos on a regular basis and Dr. J would always personally reply and see him asap if needed. We would definitely recommend him to anyone.

  • review rating 5  My beloved Bernie received such wonderful care from Dr Jacobsen. He was seen the very next week for a growth he had on his ankle. Both Dr. Jacobsen and his staff were very professional, warm, kind and compassionate. What impressed me the most about Dr J was his ability to be fully present and listen deliberately to our concerns and then communicated in a language we could understand about what Bernie needed. Bernie was in surgery the next day. Dr J listened to Bernie’s concerns and honored his choices, even though they were different than what Dr J recommended. Although the cancer spread through his body in the next several months and Bernie died, Dr J and his staff were always compassionate and understanding. They took the time to listen and they were especially kind to me, Bernie's beloved wife.

  • review rating 5  Dr Jacobson is the most competent and engaging surgeon I've known. A paralyzed Veteran for 25 years, I developed pressure wounds the VA were incapable to treat, finally the VA gave up completely and drugged me and put me on palliative care,telling nurses I'd be dead by 2015. Dr Jacobson changed all that and gave me new life. He is simply the best. Cosmetically or otherwise,one cannot do better than Dr William Jacobson .

  • review rating 5  Dr. Jacobsen or Dr. J as he prefers to be called is the most awesome character to know; he and his professional family!! Kind, soft spoken, informative, well educated and his surgical skills like no other! He brought me hope when I felt none left, at 48 I had fallen after having open heart surgery, losing my sternum due to sepsis and for the past 2 years dealing with Dr.s with attitudes and complex issues and NO bedside manners. I needed a medically necessary breast reduction surgery my infectious disease Dr. overheard my last plastic surgeon at the time literally screaming at me and walked out so she referred me to Dr. J and I am ever so grateful!! With my surgery completed and the weight removed I have less pain and can move a bit more freely allowing me so much more freedom in my life again!! THANK YOU DR. J, Kimberly, Charley and Oliver..xoxo forever in my heart you'll be..there will never be enough words to show my gratitude to you all for you have done for me!! I look forward to our visit in 2 months..So Oliver call me...

  • review rating 5  Thanks Dr. Jacobsen and staff. Warming atmosphere friendly informative and caring doctor. This was my first visit and doctor took the time to explain and answer my questions. Nothing was rushed. Staff greeted me nicely with smiles and patience. It took me courage to show up since I’m nervous about having a surgery to begin with. They helped me feel welcomed and relaxed. Thank goodness their office portal was working so no double work to provide my medical information and resigning papers.

  • review rating 5  I had many complications with my body healing from surgery, and Dr. Jacobsen demonstrated patience, resourcefulness, vigilance, and compassion. Here are a few specific things he did to help with my healing: he had me email him twice a day with pictures of my incisions so he could monitor, provide feedback and directions, and adjust his care for me as needed; he was always quick to respond to my emails and questions; he met me in his office on a Saturday during a holiday weekend to care for me during an important time in my healing; he provided regular and specific directions to my husband as he cared for me at home with the complications. His compassion and reassuring nature were valued as I put my confidence in his expertise to help me through this difficult time. I appreciate him greatly and give him the highest rating with no hesitations. His staff were also extremely helpful. Don't be bothered about calling the office and leaving a message (when someone doesn't answer) or emailing the office; they are very quick to respond with a phone call or email and this is part of their daily business routines, which allows them to care for their patients in person AND to those reaching out to them for miscellaneous reasons. This was different at first for me but I quickly adjusted, understanding their reasons and seeing their quick responses to me. The staff also worked seamlessly with my insurance company, a medical equipment company who came to my home three times a week to monitor and help with the healing process, and with the needed paperwork for my employment. I was always treated with respect, sensitivity, compassion, and excellent care.
