A Breast Lift Can Be the Right Procedure for You

Have your breasts lost their youthful spunk? Do they hang and sag more than you’d like? Give yourself a little “perk” me up with a breast lift. We are pleased to offer this confidence restoring procedure in our Northern Virginia offices to bring women the youthful boost to both their bust and their confidence.

What Causes Breast Sagging?

Pregnancy, nursing, gravity, and aging all take their toll on the breast tissue. Breasts that were once firm, rounded, and perky can become droopy, saggy and misshapen. Sagging is caused by having too much skin for the amount of breast volume you possess. We can remove excess skin and shape and reform your existing breast tissue with a breast lift. We can also add volume with a breast implant while also lifting sagging tissue by combining breast lift surgery with a breast augmentation.

Breast Lift Options

When it comes to a breast lift, each body has different needs. The degree of lifting required can vary substantially from patient to patient. The areola may need to be moved, and in some cases resized. Some women want to simply firm and reshape their existing breast tissue while others want to add more volume through an implant. Asymmetrical breasts can often be corrected during breast lift surgery. If you’re considering a breast lift come in for a consultation and we’ll help you decide which options may work best for your body type and desires.

Breast Lift as Part of a Mommy Makeover

As much as you love your children, bringing them into the world can certainly take its toll on your body. A mommy makeover combines a variety of different surgical procedures to help you restore your body after childbirth. Many women choose to include a breast lift as part of their mommy makeover. Other popular procedures include tummy tucks and breast augmentation. If you’re done having children and want a breast lift, you may want to consider a mommy makeover to get all of your needed cosmetic enhancements done in one day.

Breast Lift Recovery- What Should I Expect?

Our breast lift patients are often pleasantly surprised by their quick and comfortable recovery periods after surgery. Most patients return to their regular activities (wait a little longer to resume vigorous exercise) in less than a week. We provide pain control medication during the healing process, but many patients find that this is only needed on a limited basis. We use dissolving sutures to maximize your comfort and convenience. We’ll give you specific instructions regarding recovery at your consultation appointment and before surgery.
