Annapolis Breast Lift
Women are considering Plastic Surgery Specialists for their Annapolis breast lift procedures to help restore a youthful position and feminine shape to their breasts. A breast lift is a surgical procedure performed to raise and reshape sagging breasts and can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. A breast lift can be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation to correct breast shape and size.
Women choosing a breast lift often notice sagging, loss of elasticity in the breast skin, or breasts that have lost volume following pregnancy or childbearing.
By scheduling a breast enhancement consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, you can determine whether a breast lift is appropriate for you.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy) in Annapolis, Maryland
The doctors at Plastic Surgery Specialists perform breast enhancement procedures on an outpatient basis with the patient under general anesthesia administered by a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist in our ambulatory surgical center. An overnight stay is not necessary with this breast surgery.
One of several breast lift incision techniques may be used for your breast lift surgery, depending on the degree of sagging and the initial size of the breast. These techniques include donut (with an incision encircling the areola), lollipop (an incision around the areola and down to the base of the breast), and anchor (adding an incision in the breast crease to the lollipop technique).

There will be minimal post-operative pain for a few days, which can easily be controlled by medication.

Breast Lift Insurance Considerations
The breast lift is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by medical insurance. Each patient is responsible for payment of surgical and related costs.
