Breast Lift (Mastopexy) in Baltimore, MD

Located in Lanham, MD, Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery offers breast lifts to the residents of Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD and the surrounding communities.

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift addresses sagging, or ptotic, breasts. This can occur with aging, after pregnancy or after weight loss. The ligaments that support the breast tissue stretch and the elasticity of the skin declines. The skin brassiere becomes loose and the breast loses its perky shape. A breast lift, or mastopexy, removes excess skin, raises the height of the nipple and reshapes the breast.

We provide a variety of breast lift before and after pictures for prospective patients who think they might benefit from this surgery. And if you have additional questions, such as average breast lift prices, our highly trained and knowledgeable staff is on hand to answer them for you.

How is a Breast Lift Performed?

The breast lift procedure is an outpatient procedure that generally takes two to three hours. And it’s important to remember that this is not a scarless surgery. In order to tighten the skin and raise the height of the nipple, an incision must be made on the breast. These are well hidden, around the nipple and along the bottom of the breast.

How Do I Know if a Breast Lift is Right for Me?

Loss of volume in the upper portions of the breasts is also common as we age or have children. This fullness can be restored with a combination of a breast lift and adding volume with breast augmentation.

During your consultation, we will measure your breasts and determine the ideal height for your nipple. We will discuss what to expect in the postoperative period and instructions for your recovery. One to two weeks prior to your procedure, we will see you again for a preoperative consultation where we discuss the procedure in detail, complete the consent process, and take your “before” photographs. We think it’s an important tool for our patients to have their own breast lift before and after pictures.

What Type of Post-Operative Breast Lift Care Can I Expect?

Following your breast lift procedure, you can expect mild to moderate pain. You will be given a prescription for pain medicine and will be able to go home the same day. Recovery generally takes one week for light daily activities and two to three weeks for exercise and more strenuous activities.

What are Breast Lift Costs?

To discuss breast lift costs, it’s best to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Banks, who will go over in detail all of your options and personal goals. It’s her goal to make sure every surgery is as individualized as the patient, so we will cater the entire procedure to your needs. Give us a call today to set up your appointment.
