In his 25+ years of plastic surgery practice, Dr. Roger J. Oldham, board certified Bethesda, Maryland practitioner, has seen an exponential increase in breast surgery (including breast reduction, breast augmentation, combined breast lift and augmentation, and breast lift). Dr. Oldham understands that the female breast carries aesthetic as well as emotional value for women, and when the breast begins to sag after time, child birth, weight loss, or breastfeeding, breast lift surgery is really the only option to restore the breasts to their natural and youthful shape. Dr. Oldham performs breast lift surgery, also known as a mastopexy, for women of all ages.
Women are often surprised to hear that before and after breast lift surgery the volume of breast tissue is almost exactly the same. Some misnomers have led women to believe that breast lift surgery will dramatically decrease the size of the breast. This is a myth. When Dr. Oldham performs breast lift surgery, while the procedure itself is similar to a breast reduction (in that it shares incision sites around the areola, down the breast, and under the fold of the breast), the actual procedural technique of breast lift surgery is intended to preserve the size of the breast while removing excess skin, thereby restoring the breast to its natural size and shapeliness. If you are interested in increasing the volume of your breasts, however, combined breast lift with breast augmentation (breast implant surgery) is an option. For women who breastfed their children, combined breast lift and augmentation restores the breasts’ natural volume which was lost after breast feeding.
