Every woman knows that the effects of gravity, weight loss, pregnancy and breastfeeding can wreak havoc on your breasts, causing them to droop and deflate over time. The natural aging process can also affect the shape and positioning of the breasts, as sun damage and loss of skin elasticity weaken skin tissues and reduce breast support.
Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is designed to lift sagging breasts by removing stretched, loose skin. Oftentimes, breast lift surgery also involves repositioning the nipples and areolas so they are in a higher, more central location on each breast.
Many patients choose this procedure in combination with breast augmentation or breast reduction to increase or decrease the size of their breasts in addition to restoring youthful perkiness.
