Reclaim Your Body
A breast lift, also medically known as a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to restore a more youthful shape to the breasts. Breasts can tend to get saggy as a result of weight loss, pregnancy, loss of skin elasticity through aging, having genetically larger breasts, or simply the effects of gravity. A breast lift can also reduce areola size (the dark skin surrounding the nipple) and be combined with breast reduction or breast augmentation to enhance breast firmness or the final result.
Embrace Your Femininity
Some women are self-conscious about their breast deflation and desire a breast lift to restore their breasts to a more youthful and natural position. A breast lift is an excellent approach to improve both your look and your well-being through even, perky breasts. This operation can help you lose excess weight on your chest, which will result in decreased back and neck pain. It also eliminates skin discomfort beneath the breasts.
A Healthy Outlook
A women may be a candidate for breast lift surgery for a variety of reasons. The ideal candidate is in overall good physical and mental health with a stable weight. She is also a non-smoker who has realistic expectations for the outcome. You may be an excellent candidate for breast lift surgery if your nipples hang below the breast crease, specifically if they are pointing downward. Other common reasons for this procedure include a saggy or flattened breasts or if one breast hangs lower than the other.
“After having three children and being so caught up in the whirlwind, it was amazing the change my body experienced when I stopped breastfeeding. My breasts were saggy, and I didn't feel like my husband looked at me the same. Dr. Feledy helped me with a breast lift, and it now feels like I look better than before I had kids!”
Breast lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and lasts several hours. Techniques vary for each patient. A standard technique uses three incisions to lift the breast. The first incision runs around the areola, the second from the areola to the bottom of the breast, and the third underneath the breast. Following the incision, excess skin and tissue are removed, and the areola is repositioned higher on the breast. Some patients may be candidates for a less extensive breast lift incision pattern.
What happens after the procedure?
Recovery time after breast lift is one to two weeks, with limited activity for about six weeks. Following a breast lift, Washington DC patients will need to wear a supportive bra until the post-operative swelling and bruising have faded. Lines from the incisions will fade over time as they heal, although they may always be slightly visible. The breasts will settle into their new, lifted position over time, but future adjustments may be necessary. We will help guide you through the recovery protocols to make sure your journey is as smooth and comfortable as possible.
Relief you deserve
Your recovery time will depend on how much tissue was removed during surgery; typically, patients are cleared to return to work in one week and experience some bruising for up to three weeks following surgery. As swelling goes down, you will see your breasts settle into their new, higher position. Your clothes will fit better, and you will notice less discomfort from sagging breasts. Your breast lift results are relatively permanent if you follow our aftercare instructions and don’t experience significant weight change.

Very rarely. Loss of some or all sensation in the nipples or breasts may occur and could interfere with future breastfeeding ability. In the event of poor healing or dramatic changes in body weight, you may need revision surgery. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks such as poor healing, infection, bleeding, changes in breast or nipple sensation, and reaction to anesthesia. All potential risks and adverse outcomes will be discussed in detail during your consultation. Dr. Feledy and Dr. Maiorino will take the time to make sure you understand everything you need in order to help you achieve the best breast lift Washington DC has to offer.
A breast lift or mastopexy surgery has the purpose of lifting up a sagging breast and may be combined with a breast augmentation, in which a breast implant is used to increase the size of the breast. It entirely depends on what you are trying to achieve with your surgery and if you have the physical elements necessary to get the result you want.o increasing the size of the breast, which is the purpose of breast augmentation.
The most common reasons for a breast lift are changes to the body that occur after weight loss, as a result of aging and the effects of gravity, after pregnancy and breastfeeding, or if you have breasts that are overly large for your body type.
