Mastopexy: Anchor Incision
Also referred to as a Wise pattern (or sometimes Weiss pattern) mastopexy, full breast lift, or inverted-T incision, the anchor mastopexy is considered the traditional technique for breast lifting, elevation of the nipple/areola over 3cms is achievable as well as removal of excessive laxity of skin in the lateral and lower poles. The incisions are made around the areola, down the center of the lower portion of the breast and then across the breast in the inframammary fold. Like the donut and lollipop incisions, the areola can be made smaller at the same time. The resulting scar is in the shape of an anchor. Although the Wise pattern or anchor mastopexy used to be the standard, it is now usually reserved only for those with moderate to severe breast sagging.
