Restore Youthful Perkiness & Firmness

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, restores a more youthful and uplifted appearance to breasts that have begun to sag or droop. This can occur due to factors such as aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, or genetics. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, the breast tissue is reshaped and lifted to a higher position on the chest, and the nipple-areola complex is repositioned to a more aesthetically pleasing location.

Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of the breasts, although it can be combined with breast augmentation or reduction procedures for those seeking a change in volume as well. The goal of a breast lift is to create firmer, perkier breasts with improved symmetry, contour, and proportionality, enhancing the overall appearance of the chest area and boosting self-confidence in individuals who may feel self-conscious about breast sagging.

Combining Breast Lift With Breast Augmentation

Combining a breast lift with breast augmentation is a popular option for women seeking both lifted and enhanced breasts. This combination procedure addresses not only sagging or drooping breasts but also adds volume and improves overall breast shape and symmetry. During your breast lift in Washington, DC, excess skin is removed, the breast tissue is reshaped and lifted, and implants are placed to achieve the desired size and fullness.

By combining these procedures, you can achieve comprehensive results that address multiple concerns in a single surgery. Whether you desire larger, more youthful-looking breasts or simply wish to restore lost volume and firmness, the combination of a breast lift with augmentation can help you achieve your aesthetic goals efficiently. Please consult our board-certified plastic surgeons to determine if you are a suitable candidate for this combined procedure.

What Is Recovery from Breast Lift Like?

Recovery from a breast lift involves a period of rest and gradual healing. Following surgery, you may experience temporary side effects, such as swelling, bruising, discomfort, and mild to moderate pain. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medication and provide instructions on managing these symptoms. Follow these guidelines diligently to ensure a smooth recovery.

You’ll need to avoid strenuous activities and lifting heavy objects for a few weeks to allow your body to heal properly. Most patients can return to work and light activities within a week or two, although strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks. Wearing a supportive bra and attending follow-up appointments with your plastic surgeon are essential to recovery. Your surgeon will oversee your progress, remove sutures as necessary, and offer guidance on gradually returning to regular activities following your breast lift in Washington, DC.
