Whatever the factors are, the main thing is that women who have pendulous breasts want to get them improved.
Fortunately, cosmetic surgery offers solution to their problem. breast uplift surgery is the cosmetic surgery that is specially designed to provide solution to uneven and sagging breasts, drooping nipples and stretched areola recreating the youthful shape of breasts making them lifted and firmer. If your breasts are too small or too large, the procedure can be performed in combination with breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery to increase or decrease their size improving the results. Every year thousands and thousands of women undergo the procedure of breast lift surgery and become satisfied with the results of surgery as they become successful in achieving their goal and experience no major problem.
The main causes behind sagginess of breasts are aging, weight loss and breastfeeding. The sagginess has nothing to do with ligaments rather its weight of breasts and skin elasticity that cause sagginess. The severity of breast sagging can be determined by evaluating the position of nipple relative to natural breast crease. If the nipples of your breasts are at the level of breast fold or are below it then you need breast lift surgery. Women who have sagging breasts and good general health may be the candidates for procedure though your plastic surgeon determines your candidacy after examination.

However, you can minimize scarring by selecting the technique that requires minimum and well hidden incisions. Scars will be visible after the surgery but with the passage of time, they will fade. When it comes to the pain or discomfort associated with procedure, you can minimize it by following the prescriptions and instructions from your surgeon.
