What Does a Breast Lift Correct?

Breast lift surgery is designed to address ptosis – the sagging of breast tissue brought about by aging, weight fluctuations, and other factors. Commonly performed in conjunction with other breast and body procedures, breast lift surgery may also be an ideal stand-alone option for many of our patients. The best way to learn if breast lift surgery is right for you is by calling board-certified McLean plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside at 703-742-8004 and scheduling a free and informative consultation.

During breast lift surgery, Dr. Gartside gently lifts breast tissue into a more youthful position and eliminates loose, sagging skin. When appropriate and aesthetically necessary, nipple placement may also be changed. This, as with all aspects of your procedure, is best determined by our experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon.

Breast lift can decrease the volume of the breasts by as much as one cup size. If this change will impact your body’s dimensions or if volume has been lost through pregnancy and other physical changes, Dr. Gartside may suggest breast lift with implants. This options will be discussed in greater detail during your initial consultation at our McLean or Reston office.
