Breast sagging—medically referred to as breast ptosis—is completely natural and something that virtually all women with at least a moderate amount of breast tissue will eventually experience at some point in their lives. A few of the most common causes of breast ptosis include:

Can Breast Sagging Be Prevented?

Although some elements that contribute to breast ptosis are impossible to avoid, breast sagging can often be staved off—and sometimes ultimately limited—by eating healthily, limiting weight fluctuations, wearing properly supportive bras, not smoking, minimizing sun overexposure and avoiding tanning booths.

But what can you do if you are already experiencing breast sagging?

Fortunately, breast lift surgery (mastopexy) is an excellent, effective solution if you are bothered by your droopy breasts and want then to regain a more youthful, perkier and firm appearance. Treatment involves the removal of excess skin and the lifting and reshaping of breast tissue and nipple areolar complexes for a more ideal shape and position on the chest.

If you are interested in breast lift surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Steven Turkeltaub, MD would be happy to meet with you in person to discuss your aesthetic concerns and develop a customized treatment plan that can help you achieve the look that you desire. To schedule a consultation, simply contact our practice online or by telephone today.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.

We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.

For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.

In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.

We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
