Breast Lift

What Is A Breast Lift?

A breast lift helps your breasts regain a more youthful look by changing the shape and not the size. It’s a very common procedure that reverses the effects of age, pregnancy, breast feeding, large weight swings, gravity and any unwanted downward shapes. Breasts are “lifted” and a firmer shape and position is restored.

Dr. Beverly Fischer is a leading female cosmetic surgeon in the Baltimore area and has performed countless mastopexy (or breast lift) surgeries. She’ll help you envision and achieve the breasts that reflect the real you.

Reasons to Consider

Breast lifts are relatively simple outpatient procedures to remove excess skin, reshape your breast and tighten your skin. We strive for symmetry for the best results, customized to your body and breast type. A combination breast lift and enhancement or breast lift and reduction are sometimes recommended for the best results.

Types of Breast Lift Incisions

  • Lollipop incision: For those with slightly more sagging - in addition to the areola, an incision runs down the breast crease.

  • Anchor incision: For those experiencing more substantial sagging, the incision is made around the areola, as a vertical line down the breast and as a horizontal in the fold.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Whether your boobs have changed over the years or have always fallen flat for you, you’re a good candidate if they don't make you happy. If your nipples point downward, you have saggy skin, you have a large areola or you have a “deflated” feel, a breast lift can make a significant and lasting change by ensuring your bras fit better - reducing areola size, restoring your profile and rebuilding your confidence.

What to Expect

How to Prepare

Pre-Operative Appointment

About three weeks prior to your breast lift, you’ll come to our office to sign consent forms and receive pre- and post-operative instructions.

Date of the Procedure

We’ll take your before pictures, administer general anesthesia and Dr. Fischer will perform a 2-2 ½ hour surgery using the latest technology. Afterward, we’ll make you comfortable with supportive waterproof bandages and a surgical bra designed to help you heal faster. Any discomfort can be treated with prescription medication.


After Approximately 4-7 Days

Results are noticeable immediately and are long-lasting. You can return back to work and resume some of your lighter activities. You’ll wear the surgical bra and some silicone sheets to help minimize swelling and speed healing. Make sure you’re getting enough rest and keeping your breasts iced for the first 48-72 hours. You’ll also want to avoid strenuous activity for the first 2-3 weeks.

After 2-3 Weeks

You can resume more strenuous activity and get back to your regular routine. Any swelling should have subsided and your breasts should be in their new, enhanced position. Using silicone sheets will help scars fade expeditiously over the following months. Now you can love your breasts again!


Breast lift surgery varies in cost from person to person. The procedure can be combined with breast implants for an enhancement or without implants as a reduction. To learn more about breast lifts and the cost of your unique experience, please schedule a consultation.
