Summer and swimsuit season is the time many women make a decision to do something about breasts that have begun to sag or lose their shape. Fluctuations in weight, pregnancy, the effects of gravity and aging can all impact breast tissue and result in sagging breasts. The delicate elastin in the breasts begins to stretch or sag and does not regain its former shape without surgery. Fortunately, a breast lift can help to reposition breasts that have begun to sag and restore a fuller, more youthful appearance to the breasts.
Women who opt for a breast lift often combine this out-patient procedure with a breast reduction to reduce oversized breasts, or a breast augmentation to help restore the loss of volume in the breast that may have occurred over time. This is one area where having too much or too little breast volume is a common concern. There are many options available for women considering breast surgery, and most offer rapid recovery with little downtime.
