What is a Breast Lift?
Gravity causes the breast tissue and skin to stretch resulting in sagging appearing breasts with low positioned nipples. Breast sagging (ptosis) can occur in any woman with age or earlier in life in women with heavy breasts or after pregnancy. A breast lift (mastopexy) is a procedure that lifts the breast, the nipple, and tightens the skin of the breast. Additionally, implants can be used to increase the size of the breasts. In some women with congenital breast asymmetry, a breast lift (mastopexy) be used to improve symmetry.
