Many women who are bothered by breast ptosis (sagging) decide not to have a traditional breast lift (mastopexy) when they learn about the scar that this surgical technique leaves behind. In this modern day and age when we can tighten loose skin without a surgical scar, Dr. Roba is very excited to report that there is now an option for women in Fairfax county and the surrounding area of Washington, DC who want some lifting of the breast without a single incision!
Using only a local anesthetic, the ThermiTight® injectable radiofrequency electrode can offer the ThermiBreast® treatment which delivers radiofrequency energy beneath the skin into the breast tissue and heats the skin to a therapeutic temperature. As a result of this, collagen production in the breast tissue ensues, and the surrounding area tightens leading to a perkier and smoother appearance of the breasts!
ThermiBreast® is best suited for patients in good, general, health without a significant amount of breast ptosis (sagging). During your initial consultation, Dr. Roba will determine if you are a candidate for this treatment, as ThermiBreast® is not suited for all patients. Generally speaking, if your nipples sag about an inch or less, you may be a candidate for this procedure. Virtually any size breast and degree of sagging will see some improvement from this treatment, but it may not be enough if the sagging is more than mild. While some tightening can be seen immediately after the procedure, peak results are seen around 3 months after the treatment like ThermiTight®.
Patients should expect some mild swelling, bruising, and soreness the day after their ThermiBreast® procedure. Patients should be able to resume daily activities the following day.
