Breast Procedures


Depending on the needs of the patient, breast procedures can alter the size, shape, fullness, or perkiness of the breasts. Dr. Michael Olding provides safe high-quality breast procedures in Washington, DC.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, also called augmentation mammoplasty, is highly recommended for women who feel their breasts are too small. The procedure increases breast size and projection using saline or silicone breast implants. Dr. Olding uses several techniques to insert the breast implants depending on the patient’s needs.

Breast Lift

Dr. Olding offers breast lift procedures for patients with sagging breasts due to aging, breastfeeding, weight loss, and gravity. The procedure restores the perkiness of the breasts and their youthful appearance. A breast lift, also called mastopexy surgery, removes excess skin and tightens the remaining skin to achieve the ideal breast contours.

Breast Lift/Augmentation

A combination breast lift and augmentation involves placing breast implants while lifting the breasts into a more pleasing shape and appearance. Women’s breasts can sag and lose volume due to a number of causes, including pregnancy and breastfeeding. Because of this, a breast lift with augmentation is often offered as part of a mommy makeover.

Breast Reduction

For women who are bothered by their oversized breasts, Dr. Olding recommends breast reduction surgery. It involves the removal of fat, glandular tissue, and skin to reduce the size of the breasts, making them lighter and firmer.

Reduction mammoplasty is often recommended for women experiencing chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain. Women who regularly experience skin irritation due to their breast size can also find relief using this procedure.

Ideal Candidates for Breast Procedures

Breast procedures are recommended for women who are generally healthy and have pre-existing medical conditions that could lead to post-surgery healing issues. Non-smokers are ideal candidates. The best candidates have realistic goals and are ready to follow directions carefully during the recovery process for safe and optimal results.
