As the body gets older, it naturally undergoes changes that alter its appearance. For women, one of the visible effects of aging is the sagging of breasts. But what causes this natural phenomenon?
The skin comprises different layers that have various functionalities. Underneath the skin lies the connective tissue. This is mostly composed of collagen, a structural protein that grants the skin its strength and elasticity.
As people age, the collagen in the skin deteriorates in quality, which leads to the loss of elasticity. For women, this means the tissue holding the mammary glands in place no longer have the strength to support its weight, thus the sagging.
Thankfully, science has found a way to solve this problem.
The science of the lift: breast surgery for a more youthful figure
Mastopexy, also known as breast lift surgery, is the surgical process of raising the bust by removing the stretched out skin and tightening the tissue around the breast area in order to improve the figure and support the contour of the mammary glands. With this procedure, patients can enjoy a bust profile that is younger-looking and more emphatic.
It can also reduce the size of the areola, which grows larger over time due to the loss of elasticity. With the right procedure, patients can boast of breasts that are firmer and have a better contour.
