When patients meet with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Roger J. Oldham to discuss breast surgery options, there are four procedures to consider: breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift with implants, and breast lift without implants. Breast lift surgery without implants can give dramatic results if a woman has adequate breast size, but is concerned about the shape of the breast, especially when the nipples have become lower than they were in younger years or before pregnancy and breastfeeding. Even without implants, breast lift surgery is specially designed to reshape the breast, removing sagging skin and renewing the breasts’ more youthful shape.
During your breast lift consultation with Dr. Oldham, you will have many aspects of plastic surgery explained to you, including the procedure itself, the risks, and the benefits. You will also have adequate time to ask questions about breast lift surgery including cost, recovery time, and the placement of in incisions. The cost of breast lift surgery will be discussed with Janet, our patient counselor, after meeting with Dr. Oldham. Janet can also give you the name of one of Dr. Oldham’s former patients to discuss breast lift surgery and provide advice from personal experience. Many of Dr. Oldham’s patients would tell you that while there are scars following breast lift surgery, they are usually placed in the natural fold beneath the breast and around the areola to reduce the visibility. And, of course, Dr. Oldham will show you even more pictures of patients before and after breast lift surgery.
Please call to schedule a consultation with Dr. Oldham to discuss the option that is right for you. If you’re considering multiple procedures, or a different procedure, Dr. Oldham’s experience extends beyond breast surgery. As a plastic surgeon serving Bethesda and Washington D.C. for 25+ years, Dr. Oldham has experience with a wide range of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures including liposuction, neck lift, rhinoplasty, abdominoplasty, and facelift, as well as Botox, microdermabrasion, Juvederm/Radiesse injectable fillers, and laser treatment of lentigo and facial capillaries.
