Breast Lift in Baltimore, MD

Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging cause a woman’s natural breasts to sag and droop low on the chest. Our Maryland breast lift is performed by double Board-certified and fellowship-trained Baltimore plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven J. Rottman can help you feel more confident by restoring a more youthful appearance to your breasts.

Benefits of a Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery improves the volume of your breasts without implants. The procedure removes loose or stretched skin to restore a youthful, refreshed look. Women who undergo our Baltimore breast lift surgery performed by Dr. Rottman experience a dramatic increase in self-confidence and overall happiness with their body image.

What Is a Breast Lift?

A woman’s breasts can change with the passage of time due to the effects of gravity and the natural loss of skin elasticity. Having children, weight fluctuations, or the effects of aging can cause the breasts to lose the full youthful shape, and firm quality. By removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissues, a breast lift procedure (called a mastopexy) can restore a youthful, rounded shape and contour. Our Maryland breast lift includes a procedure to reduce the size of enlarged areolas when needed.

Breast Lift Before and After Pictures

Many women are pleasantly surprised by how much a breast lift changes the way they look and feel. Even though the surgery does not significantly change the size of the breasts, a dramatic improvement is made by correcting contour and shape. Please review our before and after photo gallery of our breast lift patients to see the stunning results achieved.

How Is a Breast Lift Performed?

Our Baltimore breast lift can be performed through a variety of incision patterns and surgical techniques. Dr. Rottman will determine the most appropriate technique based on your breast size and shape, the size and location of your areolas, the degree of sagging, the quantity of extra skin, and your skin’s current quality and elasticity.

The three types of incisions used in a breast lift procedure are as follows:

  • Around the areola
  • Around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease
  • An anchor-shaped incision that goes around the areola, vertically down to the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease.

After your breasts are reshaped and excess skin is removed, the remaining skin is tightened and the incisions closed with meticulous care which results in beautiful healing.

Preparing for a Breast Lift

General anesthesia is required for breast lift surgery. Dr. Rottman will review your medical records and order pre-surgical blood work prior to your surgery. Other pre-surgical preparations will be discussed during your consultation.

Recovery from a Breast Lift

You will be given a support bra after your breast lift surgery to help minimize swelling and support your new breast contour. The results of your Maryland breast lift surgery will be immediately evident. As the days pass, post-surgical swelling will diminish, and the incision lines fade to the point of being almost unnoticeable.

How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost?

Each woman has different needs for her breast lift surgery, so the cost of breast lift surgery varies. Rottman Plastic Surgery offers CareCredit® and AlphaeonCredit® financing to our patients who need help with the cost of the procedure. To learn more, please visit our financing page.

Is a Breast Lift Right for Me?

Breast lift surgery is typically recommended for women who have lost volume in their breasts as a result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, or significant weight loss. Breast lift surgery will not make your breasts larger – that is achieved with our Maryland breast augmentation, although many women choose to have both procedures in one surgery. The size of your breasts without augmentation is determined by your existing amount of natural breast tissue.

Breast Lift—Frequently Asked Questions

When Will I Know if I Need a Breast Lift?

Over time, breast tissue can thin and stretch out causing the breasts to sag. For many women who are unhappy with drooping breasts, a breast lift is recommended.

Will My Results be Permanent?

A breast lift can last for a significant amount of time. Unfortunately, aging and gravity will play a role in exactly how long your breast lift will last – but typically results last years.

Will the Scars Be Visible?

The incisions will be placed in the most discreet locations possible, but scars will be visible for a certain length of time. They will soften and eventually fade.

What Kind of Materials are Inserted During a Breast Lift? And Are They Safe?

To add more internal support, plastic surgeons may add an internal bra, which is a thin layer of mesh material. The mesh serves as support for the contents of the breast, alleviating the load that is placed on the skin. Internal bras are made of fully absorbable mesh materials and dissolve over time while also leaving support.
