Sagging or inelastic skin that causes the breasts to develop a “drooping” appearance is a common concern among women. Breast ptosis—the medical term for this condition—often results from the natural aging process; however, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and other factors can lead to signs of sagging breasts, as well. For many individuals, the most ideal and effective way to successfully address breast ptosis and give the breasts a firmer, more youthful appearance and projection is a surgical breast lift procedure.
While you are likely to find numerous articles and opinions online claiming that certain types of exercise can provide the breasts with a “natural lift”; the fact is that exercise—no matter how rigorous—cannot eliminate inelastic, excess skin, which is typically the primary reason why the breasts are sagging. Breast lift surgery not only removes excess skin, but also tightens the remaining skin and quite literally lifts the breasts to a more youthful and “perky” position. The key to the operation is not to simply use only the skin to lift the breast, but to reshape the breast through internal pillars of breast tissue to support the lift in order to provide a longer lasting result. This treatment can significantly improve firmness of the breast skin and give the breasts a smoother appearance and a more desirable projection.
