Lollipop Lift

  • A woman may be concerned that her breasts and nipples are low, asymmetric or appear deflated either by an inherited condition, post-pregnancy or by aging. Dr. Rad uses the vertical pattern breast lift as a very powerful technique to address these concerns.
  • The ideal candidate is a woman who has an ideal body weight, who desires symmetric and lifted breasts, and who wishes to maintain, but not increase or reduce, her breast size.

Recommended Treatments

  • A Vertical Pattern Lift is ideal for most women with mild to moderate breast and nipple droop and it avoids an excessively long scar.

Other Options

How It’s Done

  • The breast skin is elevated away from the underlying breast tissue and nipple, the breast tissue is sculpted and the skin redraped.
  • The scar pattern is in the form of a lollipop as it encircles the areola and then runs down the center of the breast and ends at the under-fold.


  • Breast lift surgery is done under light general anesthesia delivered by a board certified anesthesiologist in an AAAASF accredited surgery center.
  • Negative pregnancy test is required prior to surgery; otherwise clearance from your primary physician is requested.

What to Expect

  • In Dr. Rad’s hands, this is a low-risk, outpatient procedure that involves very little pain or discomfort. 
  • Return back to work in 1-2 weeks, depending on the speed of healing, is normal.
