Breast Lift Hagerstown
Many factors—such as gravity, childbirth, and genetics—can cause your breasts to sag or droop over time. To correct breast sagging and achieve a more shapely look, many women undergo a mastopexy or breast lift, a commonly requested cosmetic breast surgery. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Henry Garazo offers beautiful, natural-looking breast lift results to his patients at Plastic Surgery Services in Hagerstown, Maryland.

What is mastopexy?
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure in which your surgeon removes excess skin and reshapes your breasts for a firmer, more youthful appearance. Depending on factors such as the severity of drooping, skin elasticity, and breast size, a variety of breast lift methods can be used to achieve the desired results. For those seeking to increase or restore volume as well, a breast lift can be combined with a breast augmentation. During your personal breast lift consultation, Dr. Garazo will explore your breast lift options with you and help you determine which techniques and procedures will work best to achieve your goals.
How much does a breast lift cost in Maryland?
In our Hagerstown, Maryland plastic surgery office, the cost of a breast lift procedure can vary depending on any special considerations, anesthesia time, etc. The final cost of your procedure will depend on a few factors. Your cost of surgery will include:
- Dr. Garazo’s surgeon’s fee
- All of your pre- and post-operative visits
- Operating room time and supplies in our AAAASF accredited surgery center
- Post-surgical bra
After your consultation with Dr. Garazo, we’ll provide you with a surgery fee quote with your exact price. In addition to accepting cash, check, and card, we also work with CareCredit for plastic surgery financing.
Am I good candidate for a breast lift surgery?
Hagerstown breast lift candidates include women of all ages who are unhappy with sagging or drooping breasts. The best candidates tend to be physically healthy women who do not smoke and who maintain a fairly stable weight. It’s also important to possess specific, realistic expectations about the results. If you do not fit these exact criteria, a consultation with Dr. Garazo can help you determine if a breast lift is a safe, viable cosmetic option for you.

What is breast lift recovery like?
Many of our patients are pleasantly surprised to find their breast lift recovery is not as long or as uncomfortable as they assumed. After your surgery, you’ll spend some time in recovery as you stabilize after anesthesia—and then you’ll be able to go home and rest in your own home. You’ll need a designated driver and a little help around the house that first night as the effects of anesthesia wear off. While there will be some discomfort, most patients find they can switch to OTC pain relievers within just a few days. Some swelling, tenderness, and bruising are normal, and your surgeon may recommend intermittent icing for your comfort. Though quite dark at first, if cared for properly, your breast lift scars will gradually fade over time.
If you have a non-strenuous job, you should be able to go back to work within a few days. All strenuous activity, heavy lifting, and exercise will need to be avoided until you get permission from your surgeon, which is typically around 4–6 weeks after your surgery.
