Breast Lift Washington, DC

Breast LiftA breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. Factors such as pregnancy, nursing, weight change, aging and gravity produce changes in the appearance of a woman’s breasts, and as the skin becomes less elastic over time, the breasts often lose their shape and begin to sag. A breast lift can raise and re-contour your breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning tissue and nipples.

The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis. Patients generally return to work within a week and return to strenuous activity within one month. Scars should fade within several months to a year. Results vary as aging, pregnancy, and changes in weight may cause new sagging. Breasts of any size can be lifted, but the results may not last as long in women with heavy, large breasts. Your breasts after a breast lift will be smaller than your current size.

My experience with Dr. Olding and his staff was absolutely wonderful

My experience with Dr. Olding and his staff was absolutely wonderful. After several consultations with other plastic surgeons I settled on Dr. Olding because I believed he was the most qualified and showed the best judgment while explaining my procedure to me. He was also recommended to me by my trusted dermatologist so that factored into my decision as well.

Patients may experience temporary soreness, swelling, bruising, or a change in nipple sensation. Potential complications include thick scarring, skin loss, infection, unevenly positioned nipples, loss of feeling in the nipples or breasts, or asymmetry.

Important Announcement

I am committed to the health and safety of my patients. Public health officials have mandated the cancellation of elective surgeries, and for the protection of our patients and their families, we will not be seeing elective patients until the ban on doing so is lifted. Therefore, for the next few weeks, we will not be scheduling new appointments or procedures; however, our staff will continue to be available to take phone calls and answer your questions. Once we have some glitches out of the system, you will be able to have a virtual consult with me – stay tuned!
