Sagging breasts, also known as breast ptosis, are a common aesthetic concern among many women. This occurs when the breasts lose their firmness, resulting in a droopy and sagging appearance.
Why do my breasts droop?
There are several causes for sagging breasts. Natural aging is an important factor, as the skin loses elasticity over time. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can also contribute to sagging breasts, as breast tissues undergo changes during these processes. Significant weight loss, hormonal fluctuations, and genetic predisposition may also play a role in the development of breast ptosis.
How to prevent breast loss?
Although breast loss is a natural process, there are measures you can take to help prevent or delay the process. This includes maintaining a healthy weight, wearing properly supportive bras, and adopting a healthy lifestyle to maintain healthy skin and breast tissue.
What to do to correct sagging breasts? (treatment for breast ptosis)
At Living Clinic, we understand the impact that sagging breasts can have on your body image and self-confidence, and therefore we are committed to offering you the most effective solutions.
Treatment options for sagging breasts include:
Also known as a breast lift, mastopexy is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin and sagging breast tissue, repositioning the areola and elevating the breasts to a more natural and rejuvenated position.
In some cases, when breast sagging is combined with volume loss, breast augmentation may be an option. In this procedure, silicone breast implants are used to increase the volume of the breasts and improve their shape.
What if I have tuberous breasts?
Tuberous breast, also known as tubular breast, is a congenital breast condition that affects the shape and development of the breasts. It is characterized by a conical shape, with a narrow base, reduced projection and dilated areolas.
The surgeries described above also apply to this condition.
Do these surgeries leave scars?
Like any surgical procedure, none of these surgeries can be performed without leaving scars. However, scars generally become less visible after the 6th month after surgery.
