Learn About No-Scar Breast Lifts in Chevy Chase, MD and Washington, DC

Aging, pregnancy, and the effects of nursing are two of the most common causes of sagging or drooping breasts; these processes can take a toll on the elasticity of the skin and the volume of breast tissue. At Kung Plastic Surgery in Chevy Chase, we offer no-vertical-scar breast lift surgery (mastopexy) to address this problem, and keep scarring to a minimum.

Will a Breast Lift Work for Me?

Breast lifts are typically indicated for patients who are experiencing drooping or sagging of the breast skin and would like a perkier appearance. While a breast lift won’t significantly increase cup size, like breast implants would, a lift will be able to provide you with a firm and youthful look.

The no vertical scar breast lift works best for patients who have lost skin elasticity, whose breasts are long or narrow. Our Chevy Chase breast lift treatment creates a more rounded look and doesn’t produce a vertical scar, as traditional breast lifts would.

Breast Lift Surgery with Minimal Scarring

If you are concerned about scarring during your breast lift surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kung.  He can talk to you about your treatment and scar goals, and will discuss minimally scarring procedures. Our no-vertical scar breast lift treatment produces improved breast shape and position, without leaving large marks on your newly-improved figure.

What is Recovery Like?

After any breast lift surgery, many patients feel soreness in the chest area for approximately one week, which can be minimized with an oral pain medication.  Many patients return to work after about one week, and can return to normal routines after a month.  It is very important for our patients to go to follow up appointments to insure proper recovery and best results.

Breast Lifts and Breast Augmentation

Many patients who are considering a breast lift may also be aided by breast implants or augmentation. A breast lift will re-position loose or drooping skin and solve problems related to diminished skin elasticity, while breast implants add volume and increase cup size. 

Finalized treatment with a breast lift and augmentation is a fuller, firmer, and more youthful appearance. It’s important to note that breast lifts and breast implants accomplish different cosmetic goals, but can be grouped together to solve multiple aesthetic concerns for breast surgery patients.
