Several things may cause the breasts to droop or sag, including pregnancy, weight change, and aging. A good surgeon can correct this through the breast lift or mastopexy.
With this procedure, an experiend surgeon reshapes the breast mound, raises the nipple, and tightens the skin to give a more youthful, perky appearance.
In many cases, he uses a breast implant, or breast augmentation, along with the breast lift in a combined procedure known as âaugmentation mastopexy.â Using this technique, a good surgeon can give you the size and shape that you desire, and make dramatic improvement in the appearance of your breasts.
Candidates for the breast lift include women who have:
Â Â Low or elongated breasts
Â Â Nipples that point downward
Â Â Enlarged areolas
Â Â Stretched skin
Â Â One breast lower than the other
