How to Firm Sagging Breasts

Breasts gradually evolve throughout one’s lifetime. Due to factors like pregnancy, weight loss, and the natural aging process, many women may notice their breasts starting to sag. This is a common concern that can be caused by depleted breast volume, loose ligaments, lax skin, or a combination of all of these. Since these concerns gradually occur over time, they cannot easily be reversed without surgery. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Andrew Cohen, helps women who are unhappy with their sagging breasts achieve a firmer, more youthful breast appearance.

For patients wanting to lift their breasts to a higher position on the chest wall, Dr. Cohen may recommend breast lift surgery. This rejuvenating procedure is designed to reshape the breasts while tightening stretched skin or tissue. For those with mild sagging who want to restore lost volume, breast augmentation with implants may provide a mild lifting effect to address sagging while adding fullness. In some cases, patients may benefit from a breast lift with the addition of saline or silicone implants, as this may provide the most dramatic transformation. This combination procedure lifts sagging tissue while increasing the size of the breasts.

To learn if a breast lift and/or augmentation can help you achieve your aesthetic goals, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cohen. He can help you find the most appropriate solution for restoring your breasts to a firmer, perkier look.
