Sagging breasts can result from a variety of factors, including pregnancy, weight loss, and the natural aging process. Although there is not much a woman can do to prevent her breasts from drooping, fortunately there is a way to correct the situation. Dr. Joseph A. Rabson performs mastopexy, more commonly known as breast lift surgery, at our Plymouth Meeting-based plastic surgery practice in Montgomery County to lift and reshape sagging breasts. For breasts that have also lost volume, breast lift surgery in conjunction with breast augmentation may restore size and firmness.
Good candidates for breast lift surgery are women in good general health who have varying degrees of breast sagging or nipples that point downward or are positioned below the breast crease. Because pregnancy and nursing can change the size and shape of your breasts, you may wish to postpone breast lift surgery until after having children. Women under the age of 18 may also wish to postpone the surgery until their breasts have finished developing.
Each woman's breasts are unique; thus, the details of the breast lift procedure vary from patient to patient. Generally, it entails removing redundant breast tissue and raising the nipple to a more attractive position. Also, the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple, may be reduced. Because the loss of youthful volume often accompanies breast sagging, breast lift surgery may involve the placement of breast implants to produce a fuller, more voluptuous look.
