Sagging breasts are often a source of self-consciousness for women, affecting their confidence and self-esteem. But although certain factors such as pregnancy or aging are inevitable, there are solutions to restore shape and firmness to sagging breasts.

Breast ptosis: what are the causes?

Different factors can cause breasts to lose firmness. Sagging breasts, whether small or large, can be of congenital origin. Likewise, hormonal disturbances experienced during pregnancy can also lead to volume gain followed by breast ptosis.

In some women, significant weight loss can also lead to a loss of breast firmness. When we are overweight, our skin experiences ligamentous tension which tends to weaken it. After weight loss, breast volume decreases, but the ligaments remain distended.

Finally, the natural aging process also contributes to the loss of skin elasticity. Over time, the skin envelope becomes fragile, leading to sagging of the breasts.

What solutions to correct sagging breasts?

For a woman, having sagging breasts is a source of embarrassment and discomfort. Women who have breast ptosis may feel bad about themselves, less feminine. They may also have difficulty dressing according to their preferences.

Unfortunately, there is no miracle solution to lift the breasts and give them shape again. For women who want to improve and redefine their silhouette in a lasting way, cosmetic surgery offers a concrete solution.

Breast lift to correct breast ptosis

Breast lift (also called mastopexy) is a surgical procedure which involves reshaping the chest to restore more shape and firmness. The surgery aims to lift the breasts by repositioning the nipple and areola to create a more harmonious silhouette.

Breast lift is one of the most effective techniques for correcting breast ptosis. This is an intervention offering tangible and lasting results. Obviously, the procedure is always carried out while respecting the patient’s morphology and her personal preferences.

Combine breast lift and breast augmentation

When breast sagging is caused by a significant loss of glandular tissue, it is possible to resort to breast augmentation to enhance the procedure. Combining breast augmentation with breast lifting allows sagging breasts to be lifted while rebalancing the silhouette so that it is more harmonious. This combined procedure offers remarkable results for women looking to reshape sagging breasts while restoring their femininity.

What price does it cost to have your breasts lifted?

The cost of a mastopexy to correct breast ptosis (sagging breasts) can vary depending on several factors. Generally, the price includes costs related to the procedure (duration 3 to 4 hours), use of the operating room, anesthesia fees, postoperative bra and postoperative consultations.

To obtain a personalized estimate, a medical evaluation with Dr. Bernier is required. Prices are always adjusted according to your needs and your individual situation.
