Dr. Tavallali is one of the few surgeons in the Northern Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. area who performs breast surgery (breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction) with the minimal scar technique. These surgeries improve the appearance of the body’s contour by enlarging breast size with breast implants of silicone or saline, reducing breast size, and lifting breasts that have begun to sag. Breast augmentation can be performed with breast implants or with fat injections in some patients. Breast reduction, a procedure that removes fat and glandular tissue from the breasts, is offered to both men and women and can be performed through many different techniques, including liposuction of the breast. The results are breasts that are in proportion to the rest of your body.
Breast Augmentation with Implants
This is a procedure to surgically enlarge the breasts by placement of silicone or saline breast implants under the tissues of the chest. Breast augmentation improves the body contour and shape of the breasts. Breast implant surgery takes about one hour and is performed under general anesthesia. You may need to have someone stay with you the night after breast enlargement surgery and can usually resume your normal activities in 2-3 days. The cost of breast augmentation includes the surgical facility fees, anesthesia fees, breast implants, and all of your follow-up visits.
This is a procedure performed to lift the breast and nipple to a higher, more youthful position on the chest. The breasts may droop (ptosis) as a result of age, breast feeding or hereditary factors. A mastopexy or breast lift corrects this droopiness by removing the extra skin of the breast and gathering the breast tissues. The breast lift procedure takes about two hours and is performed under general anesthesia. You may need to have someone stay with you the night after your mastopexy and can usually resume your normal activities in 5-7 days. The cost of a breast lift includes the surgical facility fees, anesthesia fees, and all of your follow-up visits. Mastopexy may be performed with breast augmentation using breast implants at the same time for those patients needing both procedures (patients with small and droopy breasts). For costs of the combined breast lift and breast augmentation with breast implants, please call our offices.
The aim for this procedure is to lift as well as reduce the size of the breasts. The surgery involves making an incision around the areola and down the center of the breast (the scar looks like a lollipop). Breast reduction takes about 3 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. You may need to have someone stay with you the night after breast reduction surgery and can usually resume your normal activities in 5-7 days. The cost of breast reduction includes the surgical facility fees, anesthesia fees, and all of your follow up visits.
