As we age, all areas of our body gradually sag and droop, and the breasts are no exception. The condition of sagging breasts, known as ptosis, may be accelerated by pregnancy, breast feeding and weight loss. Fortunately, a breast lift, or mastopexy, can rejuvenate sagging breasts caused by aging and nursing.
A breast lift involves moving the nipple and breast tissue to a higher level on your chest so that the nipple will lie at the level of the breast fold, a position considered to be ideal based on measurements taken from models. The skin below the nipple is then tightened and contoured to your new shape. Breast lift surgery can be done with or without a breast implant, a decision that will be based on your personal goals and the amount of available breast tissue.
Dallas breast lift surgeon Dr. Rai will occasionally perform a breast contouring procedure that takes advantage of different techniques. A combination of a breast lift, breast reduction and a subtle implant may be needed to maximize your potential in your breast shape.
