Have you considered breast lift and seeking a skilled breast plastic surgeon in the Bethesda area? A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a cosmetic breast surgery that can reshape and lift the breast skin and tissue. There are many reasons a woman may want a breast lift to transform the breast area and create firmer, perkier breasts. At Maia Plastic Surgery, breast lift surgery is one of the many cosmetic breast procedures we offer at our clinic in Chevy Chase, MD, either on its own or in combination with other breast changes.

The skin, muscles, fat and other tissues that form the breast are prone to sagging and stretching. The weight of the mammary glands, fat and tissue can stretch the skin over time, resulting in sagging breasts. There are some factors that can contribute to droopy breasts. These include:

  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Weight gain, then loss
  • Breast implants
  • Aging skin and gravity
  • Removal or downsizing of breast implants

Some women have natural breasts that are less perky than they would prefer, even at a young age. For others, aging, pregnancy, downsizing breast implants or other factors cause sagging skin and droopy breasts. A mastopexy, or breast lift, can remove excess skin and elevate the breast tissue to create firmer, perkier breasts that are well-formed and attractive.

Is Mastopexy the Right Choice for you?

If you are having breast implants downsized or removed, Dr. Maia can discuss the option of combining a mastopexy with your implant revision surgery. Due to the smaller size, many women experience drooping breasts when removing or downsizing implants. A breast lift can also be performed with a breast augmentation if there is ptosis, or sagging breast tissue.

For natural breasts, if your breasts have sagged due to weight gain/loss, pregnancy or breastfeeding, a breast lift can restore firmer, more youthful breasts. A breast lift can also be used to create firmer, rounder breasts if you genetically have droopy breasts. Excess skin can be removed, and the tissue lifted for improved appearance and shape.

Do you want firmer, lifted breasts? A mastopexy, or breast lift surgery, may be the solution. To learn more about breast lift surgery, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery in the Bethesda area. We can schedule a breast surgery consultation with our mammoplasty specialist, Dr. Maia.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a consultation with Dr. Maia, not only was her expertise evident, her compassion shown through as she walked us through the process. Thankfully, I felt very comfortable trusting her as I underwent reconstruction surgery. I am very happy with the results and highly respect and recommend Dr. Maia.

Dr Maia truly loves what she does. She is invested in making you the version of yourself you want to be. She listens attentively to what you want and makes relevant suggestions. She did not try to introduce anything unnecessary into my treatment plan. The results I achieved during my first treatment keeps me coming back. Her staff is excellent and works to accommodate your schedule. I have recommended Dr. Maia several times and each time I get the same positive feedback.

Selecting a surgeon: After having two children and weight fluctuations over the years I was left with complete loss of volume in my breasts. I had four consultations with other surgeons but after comparing their photos to Dr Maia’s and meeting her in person, I knew she was my doctor. We talked about my lifestyle - being a mom and a professional, I didn’t want to be too big, but I’m curvy so I didn’t want to go too small for my frame either. She let me try on sizes and once I selected she agreed it was a good fit for my frame. Post op recovery: I was a smoker and had quit prior to surgery but she was very honest and adamant in telling me how important it was that I did not smoke. (I honestly needed the lecture and the transparency about what could happen if I did start smoking before surgery and post-op.) Because I was formerly a pretty heavy smoker, it did cause some issues after surgery with wound closing and she was SO diligent and on top of it seeing me once and week and squeezing me in for appointments between surgeries and patients. She prescribed different things to address the would closure issues before they really became a problem. Being able to have text message access to the office was great when I had questions and she even accommodated my schedule when I couldn’t be seen in person to send progress photos so that she could check on me. 3 months post op: I’m so happy with the results of my surgery and am so glad I waited to find the right doctor. She’s an artist! They look natural, fit my body shape and they haven’t even fully “dropped and fluffed” yet. Would highly recommend… comparing her patient photos to other surgeons will end your search. I feel so much better in my body thanks to Dr Maia.

This is my second time at Dr. Maia’s office and I am so pleased with my experience here. The staff is so friendly and caring. Dr. Maia is the best Dr in the DMV area, she knows exactly what she is doing and you will be happy with the results! I am so glad I found her! I recommend anyone who’s looking for a very personable doctor to come and see her! Thank you Dr. Maia & staff!
