Breast Lift

Weight loss, pregnancy, and aging can all cause breasts to droop and lose their shape. At Center for Plastic Surgery, our experienced plastic surgeons perform breast lift surgery in the Washington, DC, area to lift and reshape the breasts. It is almost always performed in conjunction with breast augmentation, although women who don’t need added fullness can choose to undergo breast lift alone.

A breast lift procedure raises the nipples, removes excess skin, and tightens the remaining skin. During a consultation, you and your surgeon will talk about the amount of lift desired and make a surgical plan based on your goals. Based on your degree of breast sagging, one of several possible techniques will be suggested. Breast lift surgery may be combined with breast augmentation to restore or improve breast shape.

Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift is usually performed on an outpatient basis or with a one-night hospital stay. During surgery, the surgeon will re-position your nipples to a youthful height and tighten loose breast skin to support and shape the breast.

Recovery From Breast Lift

After surgery, a dressing will be placed around the chest. The dressing will be changed two or three days after surgery. You will wear a soft post-operative bra for three weeks, except when you bathe. You should not wear underwire bras or participate in impact exercises or athletics during this time. You can usually return to your daily routine approximately 10 days after surgery.

The resulting scars will depend on the amount of breast droop and the technique, but are typically located around the nipple and in front of the breast. Complications from breast lift are unusual. Occasionally, there may be a change in nipple sensation, but this is usually temporary.

After Your Breast Lift Procedure

Patients are typically very happy after breast lift and enjoy the benefits of wearing a wider range of clothing and swimwear. Breast lift scars are situated so they won’t show even when you are wearing a bathing suit or bikini and will fade with time. Your surgeon will go over the best incision options for you in detail during your complimentary consultation, so you will know what to expect ahead of time. Your personalized patient information will also include instructions to aid healing and reduce scarring.
