Breast sagging is also known as breast ptosis. When a patient experiences ptosis, she may be interested in a breast lift to reduce the amount of sagging skin. What causes the breasts to experience ptosis?

Ptosis of the breasts occurs as a result of a variety of factors. As a result of the aging process, the skin is not able to produce as much collagen protein. This leads to inelastic and sagging skin tissue. Weight loss can also cause loose breast skin to form. Pregnancy and breastfeeding involve a dramatic increase and decrease in breast volume, leading to breast ptosis.
