Internal Sutures/ Scarless Breast Lift
breast lift

I am looking for more info on a "scarless" breast lift or an internal suture procedure. There are so many options and I am not sure which one is which. Hall-Findlay's technique, Donut Lift, etc...

I have also heard of suspension lift where there is a permanent suture that supports the implant..HOWEVER I am not interested in implants or the "internal bra". I want only my natural breast tissue (i have a lot to work with) used and lifted as much as possible with minimal scaring.

There is no scarless breast lift. The techniques which place the scar around the edge of the areola attempt to minimize the appearance of the scar. (more)
