Clients have multiple reasons regarding why they come to see Dr. Navin Singh at Washingtonian Plastic Surgery in Maryland.
One of the most in demand procedures performed is a breast lift. Our team can perform a breast lift procedure in our Maryland or Virginia office.
While breast reduction seeks to remove breast tissue to improve volume, shape or contouring, and size, our goal of a breast lift is to restore the youthful structure and position of the breasts.
The shape of breasts can change most often due to age, genetics, weight loss or pregnancy. Depending on the specific client needs, Dr. Singh may use one or a combination of surgical protocols to help you achieve your desired aesthetic outcome.
Breast Lift Surgery Chevy Chase:
- A Hole Lift – This lift involves removal of skin around the areola (brown part of the nipple). The result is an elevation of the nipple areola. This procedure has minimal scaring, if any, and allows downsizing the areola. The areola is stretched with the rest of the breast skin. If a large amount of skin is removed around the areola a special purse string suture is placed around the incision to allow proper healing. This suture is special and may result in some accumulation of skin that usually resolves with time
- The Lollipop Lift – Better known as the vertical mastopexy. This can involve removal of skin around the areola and the lower portion of the breast tissue. This will sometimes result in a scar around the areola. Then combined with a vertical scar at the lower portion of the breast tissue. Clients with large breasts, a tiny portion of the breast tissue may be removed and few internal sutures placed to achieve more volume and general fullness.
- A Swoosh Lift – Skin is removed around the areola and at the inferior portion of the breast. It is similar to the lollipop lift with an additional ellipse of skin removed to one side of the fold under the breast. We use this lift very commonly since it gives the patients more fullness at the cleavage area with less scarring than the inverted T lift.
- Up-Side-T lift – Tissue is removed around the areola skin and the inferior portion of the breast is removed. This is the anchor lift technique; skin is removed from both sides of the fold underneath the breast and the surrounding tissue.
