The breast consists of milk ducts and glands, surrounded by fatty tissue that provides its shape and fee. Situated beneath the breast is the pectoralis major muscle, a large muscle that assists in chest movement, and where a breast implant is placed when having submuscular breast augmentation. Factors such as pregnancy, rapid weight loss and the effects of gravity as you age, combine to stretch the skin, which may cause the breast to droop or sag. Some women also have a variation in size or shape from the right to left breast, which is called asymmetry. Having either breast augmentation or a breast lift may help with this.

I have many friends who have had children, and once done breastfeeding, are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts. Over coffee, they ask me questions about breast lift surgery. I explain that a mastopexy or â€œbreast liftâ€, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. As they are aware, factors such as pregnancy, breast-feeding and aging take their toll on a womanâ€™s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts will often lose their shape and firmness, and begin to sag. (more…)
