Breast Augmentation for Sagging Breasts Before and After

Causes of Sagging Breasts 

Aging is the primary cause of sagging breasts because the skin becomes less tight and fails to hold up the breast tissues’ weight in the lower area. Gravity pulls your breasts downward and develops a condition called ptosis. Women with larger breasts are more prone to sagging than females with smaller ones. 

Sometimes, the breast tissue goes up and down in weight and size. The common causes of changes in breast size and weight are pregnancy, hormonal changes, weight gain/loss, and internal changes in the breast tissues. 

In addition, menopause affects your breasts’ fullness and reduces their volume. Breastfeeding is another reason behind the sagging of breasts. Most women show concern that breastfeeding will affect their upper body’s structure and lead to sagging. 

However, there is a need for more research to confirm or validate changes in breasts due to breastfeeding. Some studies show that breastfeeding puts pressure on breasts, but nursing is not the primary cause of sagging. Changes in breast size during pregnancy are a significant factor that causes this condition.  

Does Breast Augmentation Help with Sagging?

Breast augmentation is an ideal treatment option to treat sagging. For instance, silicone and saline implants are excellent products to increase breast size and restore volume lost due to aging, weight loss, pregnancy, and hormonal changes. 

Besides, breast augmentation with implants can help achieve a rounder, fuller, and aesthetically pleasing appearance by correcting asymmetry. Bear in mind that implants sometimes fail to address excess breast skin and do not fill out areas of laxity or improve the nipple’s position. 

Some women think of going with a large implant, but this may not achieve the desired results. On the other hand, a breast lift is a sophisticated and ideal option for elevating your breasts’ contour and maintaining a good nipple position. 

A breast lift tightens and reshapes the tissue and removes excess skin, resulting in a youthful and perkier appearance. Breast augmentation results vary from woman to woman. Therefore, it is critical to schedule a meeting with a qualified plastic surgeon in Miami. 

A board-certified surgeon with years of experience can tell you whether you should undergo breast augmentation or breast lift to resolve the issue. A surgeon in Miami considers various factors, such as your skin’s health, the distance between breast fold and the nipple, etc., before recommending you a specific procedure to resolve the issue.  

Which Procedure Is Performed to Affix Sagging Breasts In A More Elevated Position?

MastoPlexy, popularly known as a breast lift, is a cosmetic procedure performed to affix sagging breasts in a more elevated position. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, a breast lift can overcome sagging caused by weight loss, pregnancy, hormonal changes, or genetic factors. 

The procedure raises the breast tissue to an elevated position on the chest wall and repositions the nipple-areola area. It also tightens your skin, leading to a fuller and aesthetically pleasing appearance. 

Generally, the procedure involves using implants to increase breasts’ volume. Although you may experience some sagging during the rehabilitation period, the implants installed or inserted will increase the volume and produce a more rejuvenated appearance, thanks to an incision made with a minimally invasive approach. 

Final Words 

Women experience saggy breasts for various reasons. The condition of ptosis commonly occurs due to aging, but pregnancy and hormonal changes can also cause your breast to lose its natural elasticity and develop a wrinkled/saggy appearance. 

The good news is that you can undergo Breast Augmentation Miami to restore your breasts’ volume and size. Contact us today for more info or schedule an appointment with our board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your requirements and seek appropriate treatment.
