Breast Lift in Fredericksburg, VA

What is a Breast Lift?

Mastopexy (a breast lift) is a cosmetic treatment that lifts and tightens the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the existing tissue, resulting in a firmer, younger look. This body contouring surgery is reserved for women who have lost breast shape and volume and have breast sag due to weight loss, pregnancy, or aging. Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki, plastic surgeons in Fredericksburg, VA, perform this cosmetic breast surgery at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg. By implementing the most advanced methods, Drs. Heppe, Bautista, and Aflaki can decide on the proper technique, depending on the degree of sag present while considering the desired outcome.

How is a Breast Lift Performed?

A breast lift takes about two hours or more and is performed using anesthesia. The timeframe of this surgery depends on the complexity of the breast sag. The surgical technique used for mastopexy surgery typically falls within two categories — the technique is defined by the size and location needed for the incision. The most used methods are the inverted-T (known as an anchor) and the vertical incisions. After making the incision, any loose, unhealthy skin is removed along with fat and tissue that is not wanted. The remaining skin is then tightened, and the breasts are brought up and lifted to look healthy. In most situations, the size and shape of the areola are reduced to match the new placement and shape of the breast. During this time, an implant can be inserted within the breast if this was discussed before surgery.

The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.
