Breast Lift Operation
There are many reasons that cause breasts to sag. With advancing age, the skin loses its elasticity and the symptoms of this sagging skin over the whole body, are most readily visible on breasts. When issues and events such as hormonal changes, genetics, preganancy, breastfeeding, gravity and weightloss/gain are added, the degree of sagging increases. Breast lifts are carried out to reduce the degree of sagging or eliminate sagging entirely.
The surgery raises and firms the breast by removing excess skin and tightening the breast tissue to reshape and support the new contour. Patients often combine breast lift surgery with breast augmentation in order to lift and enhance the size of their breasts.Procedure Videos
