Tumors of the breast that are located superior to the areola within a certain distance can be removed with bilateral crescent mastopexy incisions. These incisions are placed superior to the areola and in a crescent pattern. The resulting scar ends in the superior portion of the areola and the nipple is positioned in a higher position relative to the previous nipple areola complex. When implants have been placed previously, this incision allows access for removal of old or ruptured implants.
