There are a number of factors that can affect the appearance of the breasts. Pregnancy, weight fluctuations and aging can leave the breasts sagging and stretched, which is a condition called breast ptosis. For those who are concerned about the appearance of their breasts, a mastopexy can be performed for the purpose of breast rejuvenation.
A mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, is a procedure that aims to enhance the appearance of breasts that are sagging. Sagging of the breasts usually affects the nipple-areola complex and is referred to as breast ptosis. Breast ptosis is measured by the degree that the nipple’s location and orientation have changed in relation to the breast hemisphere. There are varying degrees of breast ptosis, and these range from mild to severe.
