As a plastic surgeon board certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Roger J. Oldham has 25+ years as a practicing cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon. Performing cosmetic procedures includes breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, facelift, and liposuction, while more reconstructive procedures equate to less-invasive treatments like skin lesion removal, earlobe repair, and even skincare treatments like injectables (Juvederm/Radiesse), Botox, and microdermabrasion. In Bethesda, Dr. Oldham often sees patients who are dissatisfied with their breasts, and desire breast surgery. Breast lift surgery, for example, can help women who have lost firmness and volume due to a combination of natural and lifestyle factors (pregnancy, age, etc.). With breast lift surgery, Dr. Oldham can help women revive their breasts back to the days of youth.
Often for breast lift patients, the breasts have begun to sag, which leads to the nipples becoming lowered, altering the shape of the breast significantly. Breast lift surgery is performed via an incision around the areola, down the breast and under the natural fold of the breast. These incision sites have been found to produce the least conspicuous scars after surgery. But, you can discuss with Dr. Oldham several options for your breast lift surgery. First of all, become familiar with breast shapes and perhaps even clip some images to bring into your appointment. While the volume of the breast will not change with traditional breast lift surgery, Dr. Oldham can use these pictures to better understand the shape you desire. Some women who seek breast lift surgery are already satisfied with the size of the breasts and in these procedures, no implants are used; the size of the breast remains the same and only excess skin is removed, as with these women before and after breast lift surgery with Dr. Oldham. However, combining breast lift with augmentation is becoming increasingly common, as breastfeeding and weight loss can lead to loss of firmness, but also a loss of volume.
Carefully consider these options available to you. Your satisfaction is always our first priority.
