About Breast Lift Surgery

Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Shlomo Widder performs breast lift surgery to improve the position of low hanging breasts. Medically known as mastopexy, this procedure utilizes specific tightening techniques to reposition and lift the breasts to a higher position on the chest wall. Some women may experience sagging breasts after pregnancy, breast feeding, or aging. Whatever the reason, Dr. Widder will work closely with you at Widder Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center in Vienna, VA, to create a customized treatment plan that addresses both your aesthetic concerns and desires. The results will leave you with beautifully lifted breasts that have a natural and youthful appearance.

Best Candidates

During your breast lift consultation, you will receive a thorough assessment where the surgeon will evaluate your current breast size and shape by taking measurements. The surgeon may also assess the breast symmetry, skin elasticity, and bone structure during your consultation. Candidates for breast lift surgery should be non-smokers in good health who have a least one of the following concerns:

  • Decreased breast volume
  • Altered breast shape
  • Pendulous breasts
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Large or stretched areolas
  • Downward pointing nipples

What to Expect

There are 3 different types of breast lift incisions that may be used depending on your unique factors. The doctor will choose one or more incision patterns for your operation based on the current size and elasticity of your breasts and areolas. After breast lift surgery, you will be wrapped in a sterile surgical dressing and a medical compression bra. We recommended that you wear something comfortable since your chest will be swollen and sore for approximately 1 – 2 weeks. All patients are advised to take it easy the first 2 – 3 weeks after surgery and avoid physical activities. A full recovery can take anywhere from 6 – 8 weeks. Please call our office immediately if you have any questions or concerns during your recovery.

Other Considerations

To give you the best results, we use only cutting-edge breast lift techniques and place incisions in areas of the breast that are less visible or easily covered. You will be given instructions on how to care for your surgical wounds during your recovery to speed your healing and minimize the appearance of scars, but all patients will have some degree of scarring.

In some cases, your best results will require moving the nipple to a higher position once the extra skin or stretched-out areola is repaired. This will improve the overall appearance.

During the initial consultation, we are happy to help you learn more about the differences between a breast lift and breast augmentation and give our opinion on which procedure is best for your goals. Some patients may have a breast augmentation combined with a breast lift to get a fuller and perkier bust.
