As women age, they begin to lose the elasticity in their skin leading to sagging breasts. This may occur after pregnancy, massive weight loss, and breastfeeding altering the shape and firmness of the breast.

A breast lift (mastopexy) will improve the appearance of the breasts raising their position and shaping them to a more youthful contour. At times, a breast lift and augmentation with implants is used to help fill the loss of volume in the upper part of the breast.

With aging and childbirth, the breasts undergo dramatic changes in anatomy and function, as well as changes to the shape and contour of the breasts.

Areas addressed by a Breast Lift
