Droopiness of the breast is a common problem after having children and breast feeding. It can also be caused by weight fluctuations and of course the ageing process. As we age, our skin and muscle tissues lose their elasticity so when the breasts increase in size during pregnancy and breast feeding, or with weight gain, it is difficult for them to return to their previous position when the size of the breast reduces. Also, the effect of gravity in this process adds to the drooping effect.

Whilst we cannot recreate the natural supporting structure of the breast, it is possible to reshape the breast so that it looks more youthful and feels more firm. Excess skin is removed from underneath the breasts and the remaining tissue is lifted and fixed at a higher position. The nipples are usually repositioned so they sit in line with the elevated breast.
