While many consider firm, perky and round breasts as the norm, it’s very common for a woman to experience sagging at some point in her life. Breasts can develop ptosis, or start to sag, for the following reasons:
Congenital: some girls will develop with breasts that sag and have downward pointing nipples. These patients are often self-conscious about the appearance of their breasts. Surgical treatment such as an augmentation mastopexy will not only improve the appearance of the breasts but usually will also improve body image, self esteem and social development.
Post pregnancy: Breasts become engorged during pregnancy and nursing, then decrease in size and often droop afterwards. The problem is usually worsened with each pregnancy, and patients are often bothered by the loss of their previously attractive breasts. A breast lift or augmentation mastopexy will create perkier, more youthful looking breasts and allow these patients to feel more comfortable with their bodies, which can provide a psychological lift.
Weight loss: with weight gain, the skin and support structures of the breast stretch. With weight loss, sagging occurs if the tissues do not have enough elasticity to regain their shape. A mastopexy or augmentation mastopexy will often help correct this, improving self-confidence.
Aging: the skin and support structures of their breast lose their tone and elasticity over time. Gravity causes these tissues to stretch and the breasts to sag. A mastopexy or augmentation mastopexy will allow the breasts to look more youthful, improving self-confidence.
