As women age, the fatty tissue in their breasts begins to sag from gravity, loss of skin and muscle elasticity, pregnancy, and breast-feeding. A bust lift is a process used to raise and firm the breast tissue to its previous “unsagged” position and give a more pleasing bust line, and better appearance.
Bust lifts can be done through surger, a procedure called a mastopexy. The surgery is performed by a plastic surgeon. The procedure can either be done under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation.
There are many different techniques that can be used to do the bustlift procedure and this varies according to the case at hand.
