Breast lift surgery is a surgery in which the breast tissue is shaped and the sagging skin is removed and the nipple is moved to where it has to be located. Repetitive deliveries, age, weight loss may cause breast sagging in women.
The breast tissue is removed if it is excessive or it is supported by placing prosthesis if it is less in breast lift surgery. The nipples will be relocated to make your breasts look as natural as possible in this process.
There are many reasons why people have breast lift surgery as follows:
- Breasts are no longer firmer and tighter, making it difficult to wear clothing without bra support.
- The breast becomes flat and seems ’empty’ after pregnancy and breastfeeding,
- Significant weight loss from diet may cause small breasts and too loose skin
- Aging skin loses its elasticity and may cause sagging on the breasts. If this happens early, it can reduce self-confidence with and without clothing.
