Saggy breasts are among the most common concerns that women face with their breasts. The sag can be even more pronounced and rapid in women who are big breasted. And while exercise and diet can help to a relatively small extent, the truth is breasts are going to sag with age. The only question is how soon and how much.
If you are concerned about sagging in your breasts, you might want to consider a saggy breast treatment Rockford plastic surgeons at PryorHealth can provide, such as a breast lift surgery to give your breast a lift and better definition.
If you are looking for long-term restoration of saggy breasts, then surgery is your best and most effective option. A breast lift surgery is one of the most sought after and effective surgical procedures for treating saggy breasts.
A breast lift or mastopexy is a surgical procedure that is performed to get rid of excess skin and then to reshape and contour saggy breasts to be more perky and shapely. In some cases, patients opt for a breast lift surgery in combination with a breast reduction surgery – a common procedure among women who are large-breasted.
A Breast Lift with implants, or mastopexy with augmentation, is a breast lift surgical option for women who might need or want more voluminous and perky breasts. Here again, the surgical procedures used are either donut, lollipop, or anchor for inserting the implants. This is a more commonly sought after procedure among women who have significant volume loss caused either by pregnancy or breastfeeding.
It is always best to choose an implant size in consultation with your doctor. The size of an implant is usually decided based on the chest width. Breast implants are either silicone or saline-based. Breast Lift with implants surgical requires downtime of around 7 to 10 days.
Breast Lift With Implants
Another option for correcting saggy breasts is a breast fat transfer procedure. Fat is harvested from a part of the body via liposuction. The fat is purified and then injected into the breasts to give them volume. Breast Fat Transfer works best if you are looking to add a cup size to your breasts. Also, ideal candidates for the procedure should have good skin tone and elasticity.
The increase in breast size cannot be accurately predicted in a breast fat transfer procedure for the simple reason that the breasts will retain only 50–70% of the transferred fat a year after the procedure. Weight fluctuations will impact the size and shape of your breasts.
Breast Fat Transfer requires a minimum downtime anywhere between 1 to 3 days. Although there will some degree of swelling and bruising – it can be addressed with OTC pain medication. Most patients return to work within a week post-procedure.

Saggy breasts or breast ptosis as it is referred to medically impacts a significant population of women. Breast sagging can happen when the supporting ligaments and connective tissue as well as the skin lose their laxity.
What you should also know is that breast tissue is mostly made up of ligaments, fat, and glandular tissue – it does not contain any muscle mass. So exercise will have an impact only to the extent that the muscles below the breasts can be manipulated to give better support to the breasts. But this will not lift up your breasts.
Depending on the severity of breast ptosis, a Rockford breast lift provider at PryorHealth will decide to perform one of the following three breast lift surgical procedures. These include the following:
Breast lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and requires some downtime. In most cases, patients will be able to resume light activities within a week to ten days post-surgery. After their breast lift Rockford patients typically can return to their normal routine 3 weeks after surgery. You can expect immediate results. It will, however, take a year for complete healing. Scars will fade away with time to become less noticeable.
