What Is Breast Ptosis?

Published on May 26, 2017 by

Aging causes a number of physiological changes in the body. When it comes to the appearance of the female body, one of the areas that can be hit the hardest by the effects of aging are the breasts. Changes in skin strength, elasticity, and health can lead a condition known as breast ptosis.

Breast ptosis refers to the amount of sagging that occurs in the breasts. A decrease in the production of essential proteins occurs as we age, which negatively impacts the skin of the breasts. Gravity and other environmental factors are also constantly applying a downward force on the breasts, which increases the amount of ptosis experienced.

Although it is a natural part of aging, severe breast ptosis can be an unsightly issue that has a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem.

The breast lift procedure is the ideal option for correcting breast ptosis. It can be customized to address your specific degree of breast ptosis.
