Ageing, gaining and losing weight during pregnancy and breast feeding all take their toll and leave their mark. Even the firmest breasts sag and droop after being stretched to accommodate milk, or through the inexorable process of time and gravity. Although women may still be very happy with the size of their breasts in early middle age, they may become completely dissatisfied with the shape, volume, and overall appearance. This can sometimes have a devastating effect on self-confidence and their ability to participate in many activities in life.
Many women find that, instead of their nipples pointing slightly upwards, they start to point down, and in some cases fall below the breast crease. The overall appearance of her breasts can cause a woman to feel uncomfortable about others seeing her naked, or in swimwear or summer tops, and her self esteem and confidence plummet. Breast uplift surgery can change the shape of sagging breasts, creating a younger look, without either reducing or augmenting breast size.
