Breast Uplift/Breast Lift

Why Breast Uplift?

After pregnancy breast feeding, a major weight loss, or the gravity affects of normal aging cause the breasts to lose its youth and fullness, and the nipples descend to the lower portion of the breast. The breast tissue is a mixture of fat and glandular tissue. Over time, the proportion of glandular tissue decreases and fat increases, consequently the breast becomes less dense, less firm. The skin of the breast also may become thinner and less elastic over time.
