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 Tysons Corner, VA, 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.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!

I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
