Want to reduce the load? Consider the Lejour breast lift

Breast surgery is a prime example of the maxim ‘horses for courses’, where one procedure certainly doesn’t fit all. Some women want a improve the volume; others want to bring the shape into line with the rest of their body. Many women want to reduce the size of their breasts, for many different reasons, and the Lejour breast lift can be the best procedure for that.

About the Lejour procedure

The Lejour breast lift is simply a term used for a particular pattern of incisions that are made for that particular procedure. It’s a derivation of the vertical scar technique, which is also known as the ‘Lollipop incision’, due to its shape – around the areola and down the middle of the breast.

The aim of this technique is to leave as short a scar as possible, resulting in a perkier shape and a better, less visible vertical scar. However, it’s a difficult technique for practitioners to master, and takes a longer than usual period of surgery to perform.

The first step anyone seeking a Lejour breast lift is to meet with the practitioner of your choice. They will assess the current state of your breasts, take note of the shape you’re looking for, and – if they’re professional – will check on how the blood supply is managed inside the breast, how the breast is currently shaped, how loose the skin currently is and the current positioning of the nipples before advising whether a Lejour procedure is suitable or not.

Bottom line: do your research

We can’t stress this enough: the onus is on you to get the best practitioner for the most suitable procedure. Check out reviews. Look over Before and After pictures. Ask if you can get in touch with previous clients. And make sure you know what questions you want answers to during the consultation period.
