Firm, perky breasts are typically associated with youth, and there is a good reason for this – the older a person gets, the less collagen and elastin a body produces; this leads to sagging, drooping breasts. This drooping is known as ptosis. To correct severe ptosis, one can visit a cosmetic surgeon for a breast lift.
Grade III breast ptosis requires either a vertical lift or an anchor lift, also known as a Wise mastopexy. These breast lift techniques give the plastic surgeon a great deal of access to breast tissue, making it easier to remove. Though breast lifts do deliver quality results, they can typically only lessen ptosis by one grade. It is important to keep your expectations realistic.
So if you’re experiencing advanced ptosis and want to make a change for the better, contact us for a consultation today. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. R. Lee Steely has the skill and experience needed to make your breast lift procedure comfortable and worry-free.
