Breast Lift in Washington, DC
Dr. Yousefi offers breast lift surgery for patients in Washington, DC, Vienna, Arlington, and surrounding areas of Northern Virginia.
Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, can be an option for many women who begin to experience sagging breasts and can raise the breasts to achieve a more balanced, appealing appearance, offering increased self-esteem and rejuvenated confidence.
Dr. Yousefi achieves optimal results through individualized breast lift treatment plans tailored to meet the needs of each patient’s personal goals, with minimal scarring and discomfort.
How Is a Breast Lift Performed?
Although breast lift techniques vary, the most common procedure involves an anchor-like incision that is made along the underside of the breast. The incision goes around the area where the skin will be removed, thus defining how the nipple will be relocated. When the excess skin has been removed, the nipple and areola are moved into a higher position. The skin surrounding the areola is repositioned to reshape the breast.
Some patients with relatively small breasts and minimal sagging may be candidates for modified procedures requiring less extensive incisions. One such procedure is the “doughnut (or concentric) mastopexy” in which only a circular incision is made around the areola and a doughnut-shaped area of skin is removed. Recent innovations in breast lift techniques include minimal incision techniques and novel procedures that decrease the risk of nipple sensation loss. Another more recent technique that Dr. Yousefi performs is the use of suspension sutures to create a fuller look in the upper part of the breast and a longer-lasting result.
Many patients choose to have a breast augmentation in conjunction with a breast lift. See our breast augmentation page for more information on this procedure.
What Can I Expect After a Breast Lift?
Recovery for the breast lift is usually simple with little discomfort. Once the post-operative bandages are removed, the patient will need to wear a specialized surgical bra for several weeks. Patients sometimes report minor discomfort associated with surgery which can be treated with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following the post-operative directions provided by Dr. Yousefi. Patients can typically return to light work in just one week.
