Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, weight gain and loss, and the force of gravity take their toll on a woman’s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag.
Breast lift (or mastopexy) is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape the breasts. There are many types of surgical breast lifts. The type of lift you may need can vary with the size shape, and degree of sagging.
If your breasts are small or have lost volume (for example from pregnancy) breast implants, can be inserted in conjunction with mastopexy.
