Saggy Breast Treatment in Rockford, IL

Perky and beautifully shaped breasts are a blessing. However, gravity, the natural aging process, hormonal changes, weight fluctuations, and childbirth can rob your once perky breasts of their volume and shape.

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 Pryor Health 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.


Breast Fat Transfer

Breast Fat Transfer CostPrice Range $1,000 - $20,000
Breast Fat Transfer DowntimeRecovery Time 1 - 2 weeks

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.

What Causes Saggy Breasts or Breast Ptosis?

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.

Breast Lift Procedure & Results

Depending on the severity of breast ptosis, a Rockford breast lift provider at Pryor Health will decide to perform one of the following three breast lift surgical procedures. These include the following:

  • Donut Lift (also called Benelli or circum-areolar)
  • Lollipop Lift or Vertical Lift
  • Anchor Lift

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.
