For nearly three decades, Washington D.C. plastic surgeon Dr. Roger J. Oldham has been practicing in Bethesda, Maryland. Board certified for just as long, Dr. Oldham’s care of patients is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and his active membership in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons confirms his dedication to continued plastic surgery education and patient care. Among the wide variety of plastic surgery procedures available for patients, breast surgery is especially popular. Combining breast surgeries has become popular in recent decades as patient needs change. Combined breast lift and augmentationis one such procedure.
Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) with breast augmentation surgery (breast implants) is a procedure which reshapes the breasts but also utilizes the added volume that breast implants can offer patients to increase the breast size. This month the FDA confirmed its reports previously released in this decade which the attests to the safety of silicone breast implants. Both saline and silicone breast implants can be used through insertion under breast tissue or behind the chest muscle wall. This is an important decision to make related to your breast lift and augmentation surgery, and one with which Dr. Oldham can assist. The results of your choice should be based upon personal preference for shape of the breast, as it did for these patients before and after combined breast lift and breast augmentation.
Schedule your appointment to meet with Dr. Oldham for a personal breast lift and augmentation consultation. During the meeting, you can ask as many questions as you have related to the procedure, recovery, and cost.
