Breast Lift Baltimore | Best Mastopexy Surgeon in Maryland

Breast Lift – Mastopexy

Over time, you might find that your breasts lose their shape and firmness. A breast lift (also called a mastopexy) can raise and firm your breasts, giving you an uplifted and youthful appearance.

Whether you’ve experienced sagging or droopiness due to pregnancy, weight loss, or general aging, a breast lift can help you achieve the figure you desire.

If you’re looking for the best breast lift in Maryland, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Rosenberg.

Who is a Good Candidate for Breast Lift Surgery?

Before undergoing breast lift surgery, it is important that you are generally healthy overall. This includes being at a stable and healthy weight and a nonsmoker. There are several signs you can look for to judge whether you are suited to a breast lift as opposed to another procedure, such as a breast augmentation.

Breast lift candidates generally have nipples that point downward and fall below the breast crease. They also typically have stretched skin and enlarged areolas. Finally, some patients may be candidates for breast lift because one of their breasts is lower than the other. Your candidacy for breast lift surgery will be determined by Dr. Rosenberg after a consultation.

How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost In Maryland?

The cost of a breast lift varies depending on the extent of your surgery, the geographic location where you have your surgery, and other factors. The national average cost for a breast lift is about $4,800. Some additional fees that affect how much a breast lift costs may include anesthesia, facility costs, your surgeon’s fee, prescriptions and medication, and medical tests.

The Breast Lift Procedure

The breast lift procedure is used to correct sagging or drooping breasts by removing excess skin and tissue and repositioning the nipple. It is usually performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia, and side effects may include temporary swelling, bruising, and numbness.

Three incision patterns can be used for breast lift surgery: periareolar, “lollipop lift,” and “anchor lift.” The periareolar approach is the least extensive yet provides the least amount of options for lifting skin and tissue. The anchor lift, on the other hand, involves a circular incision around the areola, a vertical one down to the breast fold, and a horizontal one along the breast fold. While these various incision techniques all heal well, the more extensive the procedure, the more visible the scar.

Most patients can return to work and light activities in one week following a breast lift. Concerns about scarring and risks of the procedure can be discussed with your plastic surgeon.

Breast Lift with Implants

Mastopexy, or breast lift, can be performed either by itself or in conjunction with breast implants to improve the results of breast enlargement. Options like implant size and placement and the location of the incision are based on your goals and can be discussed with your surgeon. It is important to choose a qualified physician like Dr. Rosenberg and to have realistic expectations about the procedure. At The Plastic Surgery Center in Maryland, comprehensive breast enhancement is our area of expertise.

Breast Lift with Reduction

Depending on your desired surgery outcomes, a breast reduction can often be combined with a breast lift for maximum results—creating a smaller, more youthful, and uplifted shape.

Dr. Rosenberg might recommend a breast lift along with your reduction if you’ve experienced any changes or losses in your skin’s elasticity from:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Weight loss or gain
  • Aging in general

What should I expect during a consultation for a breast lift?

During your breast lift consultation, you can discuss your goals for the procedure with your surgeon. You should also be prepared to discuss any medical conditions, allergies, previous treatments, or medications so they can determine whether you are healthy enough for the surgery. Finally, your surgeon will examine the breasts and potentially take measurements or photographs. They will explain a recommended plan and the results you can expect from a breast lift.

Before your breast lift, you can ask any questions you might have during a consultation. Some common breast lift questions include:

  • What certifications, training, and experience do you have?
  • Am I a good breast lift candidate?
  • What techniques would you recommend for my breast lift?
  • Where will my breast lift be performed?
  • What can I expect during a recovery period?
